More July 4th smart home sales

Should I buy smart home devices on July 4th? 

If you’re looking to upgrade your smart home devices, then Fourth of July sales are a good time to do so with many products going on sale. But if you miss out, don’t sweat it, as you’ll also be able to shop smart home deals during Amazon’s Prime Day event which will take place shortly after Fourth of July sales wrap up. That sale is probably worth waiting for if it’s Amazon devices in particular you’re looking for, but smart home devices from other brands tend to go on sale starting early July.

What are the best July 4th smart home sales?

As with most sales throughout the year, the big retailers are usually the places to shop for the best deals, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target. But places like Costco and B&H are also worth keeping an eye on, plus some brands run their own sales directly. We’ll naturally be checking for deals across all trusted retailers to make sure the cheapest price is always available to you. 

What else is on sale during July 4th? 

Plenty of deals across all sorts of things will be up for grabs across the Fourth of July week. Many sales start early, while some keep going for a few days afterward. We round up the best Fourth of July sales in one place with savings to be made on tech, appliances, mattresses, and of course, smart home devices. 

How we choose the best July 4th smart home deals

Many of us here at CNET have covered shopping events for over five years, including Black FridayPrime DayMemorial Day and countless other shopping events. In that time, we’ve learned how to spot the best deals among a sea of thousands of superficial offers and scams, and we only surface the best offers from trusted retailers.

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing smart home deals to show you. We have a team of devoted experts who have tested hundreds of smart home devices to make sure we’re only bringing you the best of the best.

  • Real discounts mean exactly that. We check pricing history for products on sale so we know when it’s a case of an inflated MSRP rather than a genuine saving. 
  • Quality reviews and testing are super important for any product, and especially so when it comes to the smart home devices used in your personal spaces. A discount isn’t worthwhile if it results in a subpar product experience, no matter how much you saved. 
  • Remaining sale time is a huge part of our vetting process. Some deals are only around for a short time or may be limited in supply. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know upfront so you don’t come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.
