Amazon’s budget smart thermostat is even more affordable today


Even without the discount, Amazon’s surprisingly awesome smart thermostat is a steal in itself. After our reviewer spent a decade testing almost every smart thermostat since the Nest Learning Thermostat launched, she found it to be one of the best yet. That says a lot, and it’s pretty impressive considering it’s such an affordable smart thermostat.

The thermostat is stored for the first time today, sold for $ 47.99 on Amazon – a 20 percent discount off its typical $ 59.99. Built in conjunction with Honeywell Home, this gadget is able to learn and adapt to your schedule, just like more expensive thermostats. Considering the price, it lacks some features. Perhaps the most glaring omission is that it doesn’t integrate with platforms or voice assistants besides Alexa. Still, if you’re looking for a good basic thermostat with which you can control the temperature in your home (even when traveling), it’s definitely worth considering.

Developed in collaboration with Honeywell Home, the Amazon smart thermostat allows you to control your home’s temperature via Alexa voice commands and remotely via an app.

Sonos has great deals on refurbished products through December 31st. You can buy, for example, the latest generation of the Sonos One for $ 129, nearly $ 100 less than its full retail price of $ 219 when bought new. The first generation is also on sale for $ 129, but does not support Bluetooth Low Energy, has a slower processor, and comes with less memory than the second generation. Meanwhile, the first-generation Sonos Beam soundbar is selling for $ 259 as opposed to $ 399, the new purchase price. While it doesn’t support Dolby Atmos like the second-gen model, we found that it was still a competent smart speaker that shares a lot of features with the new version.

All discounted refurbished products will arrive in a box with original accessories and cables. They’ve also been certified directly by Sonos, which means the company has tested and given each one internal and external cleaning and inspection. Each product also comes with a one-year warranty and 45-day money-back guarantee.

Sonos One delivers detailed, full-bodied sound. The compact smart speaker also has good vocal microphones, integrates with existing Sonos systems and supports a wide range of music services.

If you prefer the earbuds over the bulkier earbuds, you might want to grab the second-gen Apple AirPods from Amazon as they’re just $ 99.99. This matches its second lowest price after seeing the headphones drop to $ 89 during the first Black Friday sales. It’s also a lower price than what we saw on Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday when they sold for around $ 110. Typically around $ 129, this model offers great wireless performance, reliable battery life, and is easy to use.

If you’ve got a little extra cash to spend and are looking for a great pair of on-ear headphones, then Adorama bundles the Sony WH-1000XM4 with Mophie’s Power Boost XXL 20,800mAh Battery Power Bank for just $ 248. This matches the price of Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, many retailers sold the headphones for $ 349.99 for themselves. Mophie’s Power Bank typically sells for $ 39.95 itself, so this set is valued at around $ 390. Plus, the set also includes a small microfiber cleaning cloth to get you started.

As we noted in our review (and as you’ve probably read several times in our coverage of offers), Sony’s excellent WH-1000XM4 offers the company’s best noise-canceling capabilities to date. . We gave the headphones a 9/10 in part because of that, along with their stellar comfort, sound quality, and the fact that they also allow you to connect to two Bluetooth sources simultaneously (this was lacking in the XM3 ). Meanwhile, Mophie’s portable power bank comes with two USB-A ports so you can charge your headphones and phone simultaneously, and it charges via Micro USB. The company also claims that its 20,800mAh battery provides up to 77 hours of extra battery life, but note that we haven’t tested this product, so we can’t confirm if that’s really the case.

Of course, if you’d rather buy the headphones on their own, many still sell them for just $ 248, including Best buy and Amazon.
