Best Smart Home Deals: This Editors' Choice Remote & Dimmer Bundle is Under $40


The Disney Channel Original Movie Smart House came out nearly 20 years ago. What was once a mere kids' film starring Katey Sagal (and directed by LeVar Burton!) has now become reality. You can create your own Smart House without breaking the bank — check out this week's best smart home deals.

Insteon 8-Scene Remote with Plug-In Dimmer
Store: SmartHome
Price: $26.99 via "SMARTSUN10"
Shipping: $7 s&h
Lowest By: $37

If you don't know how best to smarten your domicile, this Editors' Choice bundle is a good place to start. The Insteon Mini Remote Control Keypad is the perfect way to add a switch to your home without the hassle of wires. It's also versatile — mount it on your wall, clip it to your car's visor, or place it on your night stand. As long as your compatible lights and appliances are within 50 feet of the keypad, you can control most of your home with mere fingertips. The added Plug-In Dimmer Module allows you to create the perfect ambient lighting via voice control through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Note that promo code "PROMO10" may also yield the same discount. An Insteon Hub is required for these items to work (sold separately).

Uniden U-Bell WiFi Video Doorbell
Store: Walmart
Price: $89.99
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $13

Ever wonder why your packages look like they've been thrown against your door? Chances are, they might have been! Of course, that's all conjecture until you can show proof. The Uniden U-Bell WiFi Video Doorbell can record what your delivery person may (or may not) be doing properly. Its 1080p sensor will provide crystal clear video, while the 2-way audio will allow you to summon your inner Wizard of Oz. Other features include an alarm trigger, motion activation, and night vision. Consider this your way of putting inconsiderate drivers on notice.

Home Depot charges the same; so does Amazon for Prime members.

Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor
Store: Dell Home
Price: $14.99
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $1

This sensor may be a direct price low by $1, but several stores charge over $20. Can you really put a price on the safety and well-being of your children and pets, though? (Well, obviously you can, but $15 is a solid price to pay for peace of mind.) The Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor can be placed in a backpack, added to a set of keys, or attached to a collar. It sends push notifications to your smartphone whenever someone leaves or enters your home. To up the ante, you can also program the sensor to control your home's lights and locks — ideal if your child (or dog, tsk tsk) is the forgetful sort.

Amazon and Best Buy charge the same with free Prime shipping and pickup, respectively. A Samsung SmartThings Hub is required (sold separately).

If you need to shed some light on the surroundings of your home — are those trash pandas rummaging through your empty pizza boxes again? — pick up this pair of Arlo Smart Home Security Lights. These weather-proof, motion-sensor lights each emit 400 lumens brightness and can be controlled from your smartphone, thus eliminating any potential showdown with said trash pandas. They can also be added to an Arlo camera system for extra security.

TP-Link Smart LED Light Bulb with $10 Newegg Gift Card

No bridge? No problem. As Tom's Guide points out, this TP-Link smart bulb eliminates the need for that component thanks to its built-in 802.11n WiFi.

Spend the Newegg gift card and it'll be like scoring this perfect smart home gateway item for half price.
