While Prime Day is wrapping up for another year, it's a perfect time to take a look around your home and see if it's finally time to look at some HomeKit devices before the deals end.
I spent most of 2021 upgrading the lights in our home with smart ones, followed by cameras to watch our dog, Jolly for when we had to go somewhere, and I've already lost count in trying to remember all those situations where we've not had to worry about the dog when we've been stuck in traffic.
Using Apple's Home app on our iPhone and iPads to toggle the lights and check the rooms in the house has been incredibly helpful, and more importantly, it gives us peace of mind.
So in the midst of Prime Day, I've spotted a few devices that have some great discounts applied to them, so you can also get started on making your home a smart one.
Seven of the best HomeKit deals so far
It's important to remember that if you want to use all of these when you're away from your home, you'll need a hub in order to do that. This is where an AppleTV or HomePod can manage the devices within the Home app, and will use your internet connection to keep in touch with you, through your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch,
With Prime Day deals disappearing and other ones taking their place across Amazon's site, you'll most likely see another HomeKit peripheral with a big discount soon. So if you're looking for something else, there's a good chance it'll appear by the time Prime Day ends.
