IoT devices, like furniture and other home necessities, are frequently expensive, and it can be difficult to determine which are appropriate for your space. Fortunately, sales like this October Prime Day can help with the first issue.
For this members-only event, a variety of smart home devices, including robot vacuums, thermostats, kitchen technology, and more, have been discounted.
You can get some high-end gadgets for hundreds of dollars off, which means you might be able to get a better robo-vac than you expected thanks to these deals.
And if you’re looking for a housewarming gift for a loved one or someone who has recently moved into a new home, now is a great time to do so.
