How far you go with home security is up to you, but if you are going to buy just one product, security lighting should be it. Not only does it make life easier as the evenings get darker and you realise once the sun has gone down that you haven't yet taken the bins out, it also acts as a great intruder deterrent.
Whatever stage you're at in your project, be sure to take advantage of Amazon Prime Day 2020 deals — some products in our round-up are over 50%-60% cheaper than their usual price meaning they won't be around for long.
Remember though, Amazon Prime Day deals are only available if you have Prime membership. Don't panic if you aren't yet a member, Amazon are currently offering a 30-day free trial which can be cancelled at any time.
We've looked at a whole range of home security devices, from motion-triggered lighting to home surveillance cameras that can link to your mobile phone in order to offer you complete peace of mind, knowing your home is protected.
So, get ready to make some serious savings.
