Since Alexa is so entwined with smart homes, it's likely we'll be seeing many of these devices go on sale for Prime Day. You'll want to keep an eye out for deals on smart thermostats, lighting, security cameras, speakers and more that can all be operated from your phone or via voice commands. These deals should also benefit anyone who favors Google Assistant over Alexa, since many smart home devices can work with either unit. If you're considering purchasing smart home devices, know that at this point in time, Google Assistant can control over 5,000 devices, while Alexa can control more than double that number.
Amazon's current smart home deals include:
- Nest (T3007ES) Learning Thermostat for $225.99 ($24 off)
