We regularly get asked what the best products to get started with a smart home are and we normally provide the same answer, Amazon Echo, Google Home, Philips Hue, and Nest.
Those are all products that you might not have gotten started with yet due to their price, let’s face it, setting up a smart home is very expensive for what might seem like little return, however, thanks to Amazon’s Prime Day promotion, you can now get at least of those products with a massive discount.
That’s because Amazon is offering the Nest 3.0 smart thermostat for just £135 today as part of their promotion, that’s a massive £85 off that you can use to grab their other deal on Philips Hue lighting.
In case you don’t know, Nest is a circular thermostat that replaces your current dumb thermostat and brings in a number of smart features, allowing you to control your heating from your smartphone or your personal assistant, be that be Alexa or Google Assistant.
It also brings in some automatic settings to help you save more energy.
You will have to install it yourself if you buy it from Amazon, however, if that’s not a problem for you then we would definitely recommend picking up this deal.
You do need an Amazon Prime membership to access these deals, which costs £7.99 a month, or you can grab a year straight up for £79.
Of course, there is a 30-day trial available for anyone who hasn’t already had one.
You can do that and find more of the Prime Day deals here.
