In today's world, it seems like almost everything is automated: our outlets, our security cameras, the doorbell ... Once you realize all the benefits of having smart home features for things like lighting and music, it can be tough to stop automating. Whether you're deep into your smart home journey or you've just got your first smart bulb, Amazon Prime members can save up to 55% on the retailer's Alexa-enabled devices as one of the site's early Prime Day 2021 deals.

The wired Ring Video Doorbell did not disappoint in our tests, with our reviewer calling it a "great option to safeguard your front door on a budget." With 1080p HD video, two-way talk, advanced motion detection, real-time notifications (complete with the pleasant-sounding Ring Chime) and night vision, you can't go wrong. In fact, we hailed it as one of the best smart doorbells for households already operating with Alexa. (Note: You'll need to have doorbell wiring already installed for this device to work, since there's no battery option.)
A smart home can never reach its full potential, however, without fast and reliable Wi-Fi, and the Amazon Eero 6 dual-band mesh Wi-Fi 6 router is now down 36% from its normal $129 to just $83 for Prime members, saving them $46. We named an older version of this gadget the best-valued mesh Wi-Fi system on the market for its "respectable" speeds and simple setup.
Offering coverage for up to 1,500 square feet with Wi-Fi speeds of 900 megabits per second (Mbps), you can connect all of your smart devices while everyone in the family streams music and movies, plays video games online and surfs the internet without dead spots or buffering. Among the near-2,500 Amazon shoppers who have left reviews were those who called its connection "lightning fast." With built-in Zigbee compatibility, this router can easily connect to other compatible Alexa devices in the network, too, working as the perfect hub to meet all your smart home needs.
