As Amazon Prime Day continues, smart home tech enthusiasts can make huge savings. 

From smart plugs that you can control when you’re out of the house, to smart heating controls which let you determine the temperature in each room of your house, making your home smarter is easier than ever, and these Prime Day deals aren’t to be missed - including an incredible 62% off the Echo Dot!

Echo Dot (3rd Gen) | RRP £49.99, NOW £18.99

Echo Dot (3rd Gen) | RRP £49.99, NOW £18.99

The Echo Dot was already one of the more affordable smart speakers, but this 62% Prime Day discount makes it a must-have deal.

The third-generation Echo Dot is a voice-controlled smart speaker with Alexa, which is perfect for any room, and it comes in four colours.

Moreover, the Echo Dot can act as the hub for your smart home, allowing you to connect compatible devices to turn on lights, adjust thermostats, lock doors and more.

And you don’t have to worry about privacy. The Echo Plus is built with privacy protection and control, including a 'Microphone Off' button that automatically disconnects the microphones, so Alexa isn’t listening for commands at all times. 

Philips Hue White and Colour Ambiance Starter Kit | RRP £149.99, NOW £89.99

Philips Hue White and Colour Ambiance Starter Kit | RRP £149.99, NOW £89.99

This Philips Hue bundle is a great way to introduce smart lighting to your home, and while it normally retails at £149.99, you can save £60 with this brilliant Prime Day deal.

The bundle comes with three LED bulbs, which are easy to set up, and a Zigbee-powered Hue Bridge, which connects to your home network. The LED bulbs offer integration with Alexa and other home assistants, and have a bright output with 16 million colours.

You can operate the lights remotely via the Philips Hue app, and tune them to your desired setting: you can sync them to pulse in time to music, or dim them to the perfect level to watch TV. 

TCP Smart Thermostatic Radiator Valve | WAS £45, NOW £33.99

TCP Smart Thermostatic Radiator Valve | WAS £45, NOW £33.99

Control your heating from anywhere in the house with this smart TRV from TCP, which also lets you set individual temperatures in each room.

Once set up (which is quick and easy to do), connect to your WiFi and download the TCP Smart App. You can then set automatic timers for your heating to turn off and on, and set schedules too. It’s also compatible with Alexa and Google Home. 

Another big plus of this radiator valve is that protects your heating from freezing when it's off for long periods of time over winter months.

One thing to note however is that this TRV requires a TCP Smart Zigbee Hub to run, which you’ll have to buy separately. If you don’t own one, it’s lucky that Prime Day has also offered up this brilliant deal  on the TCP smart TRV with the hub included!

TECKIN Smart Plug (4-Pack)| WAS £41.99, NOW £30.81

TECKIN Smart Plug (4-Pack)| WAS £41.99, NOW £30.81

This smart plug from Teckin turns an ordinary device into a smart one: you don’t have to be in the same room, or even at home, to turn a device off or on.

You can use the Smart Life app to set schedules for your devices, which will help you to reduce your energy usage and save money on your bills. It’s also compatible with Alexa and Google Home Assistant.

A built-in overload protection circuit means you don’t have to worry about overloading, and a sliding safety cover protects inquisitive children.

Another positive is that it works with any Wi-Fi router without the need for a separate hub.

It comes with a sealed Panasonic battery, and FireAngel states that the battery should be functional for 10 years.
