Our selection of the best smart devices to look for bargains in the Black Friday week below.
# 1. Smartphones
You may now think, why smartphones are first on our list here? On the one hand, the smartphone is the center of all home automation and thus the ultimate smart device, on the other hand, the smartphone deals during Black Friday week are really attractive. Of course we did not want to withhold that from you. Our this year’s recommendation in terms of smartphones is clearly the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung has really brought two super devices to market with the S8 and S8 Plus. The quality is the highest you can find in a smartphone, the camera is excellent, the hardware is super fast and the design is stunning. Best of all, both the Samsung S8 and the S8 Plus are extremely cheap to buy. The prices are not much higher than those of the emerging Chinese manufacturers (OnePlus One, Xiaomi, etc.), but the quality and performance is second to none.
In addition to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, there are more smartphones this year, which receive our unqualified recommendation. First of all there is the Huawei Mate 10 Pro we just mentioned. An absolute flagship smartphone! If you are not into the latest in smartphones but are looking for a real bargain in pricing definitely take a look at the Moto G5S.
# 2. Home Automation
The cold winter time is up and coming, so here is our first tip: Automate your heating. There are several vendors that offer very good integrations into your existing home automation and you can use them, for example to control your heating via Alexa or your Amazon Echo. Another very exciting provider is tado. Intelligent heating control is made really easy here. And with that you can even save money.
Another innovation in home automation has recently been introduced by Amazon. With the Echo Look Camera it is now really easy to monitor your own home. If you already have other devices from the Amazon Echo Line, these are of course compatible. It shows how seriously Amazon is taking its home automation / smart home business. Accordingly, we can only recommend these products to you. As part of the Black Friday week there is certainly another opportunity to get discounts on the Amazon Echo devices. You should not miss this.
One of our clear favorites here is the Amazon Echo Plus including a Hue White E27 light bulb. Here, Amzon will certainly come up with a very good price during the Black Friday week. We probably do not have to provide a lengthy guide on how convinced we are of Philips Hue and the integration with Amazon Echo, it just works.
# 3. Amazon Products
Experience shows that especially the Amazon products are greatly reduced during the Black Friday week. So, if you’ve already planned to stock up on an Amazon Echo, Kindle or perhaps an Amazon tablet for Christmas, the time has come to strike. Be sure to look for offers on the following products:
- Amazon Echo Dot
- Amazon Echo
- Amazon Echo Plus
- Amazon Echo Show
- Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
- Amazon Kindle Oasis
Last but not least, during the Black Friday week, the Kindle has always been very much reduced in recent years. There are now 3 different versions of this very popular tablet, the Kindle Fire 7, the Kindle Fire HD 8 and the Kindle Fire HD 10, and 2 Kinds versions. The main differences are the size of the display and the price. We recommend the Kindel Fire HD 10, as it is the most comfortable surfing experience.
