These are the best selling smart home devices with at least a four star rating on Amazon for December 2017.
|TP-Link Smart Plug
It's no surprise that these TP Link WiFi smart plugs are at the top of the list. Amazon has been bundling them with Echo's and selling them for up to 50% off lately. Since they don't require a hub of any kind, you can plug them in and get started automating with minimal setup. The TP-Link Smart Plug also works with Alexa and Google Assistant.
|Second Generation Echo Dot
The cheapest and most versatile of all Echo devices, the Echo Dot beats out all of its family members as the second best selling smart home device on Amazon this month.
|Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
The Fire TV Stick is one of the cheapest ways to turn your TV into a smart TV. Plus all Fire TV Sticks have Alexa onboard, giving you the ability to control your whole house using the included remote.
|Second Generation Amazon Echo
The Second Generation Echo packs all of the features of the first Echo into a smaller form with better sound quality. It also has an audio out jack and the ability to change its look with multiple skins.
|iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum
The Roomba 690 is a massive improvement over the Roomba's of old. The 690 features WiFi, so you can schedule and control cleaning from the app, and it works with Alexa. Amazon is currently selling it for 20% off!
|Ring Video Doorbell Pro
Ring is the leader in video doorbells, and with good reason. They've expanded their product lineup to include remote doorbell chimes, solar powered outdoor cameras, flood lights and possibly a security system. The Ring video doorbell pro has all of the awesome features of the original, plus a 1080p camera, a smaller form and even better motion detection.
|TP-Link Smart Plug Mini
The second TP-Link plug to crack the top ten this month is the Smart Plug Mini. This smaller version of the model in the #1 spot allows you to fit two smart plugs in the same outlet. Like the bigger version, this works on WiFi, so there is no hub and very little setup required. It also works with Alexa and Google Assistant.
|Philips Hue White A19 4-Pack
This 4-pack of everyone's favorite smart bulb will run you about $12 a bulb. That's about the same price a regular LED bulb cost just a year ago! Hue bulbs require a hub to be connected to your smart home and work with Alexa, HomeKit, Google Assistant, Cortana, SmartThings and more!
With Amazon currently selling it for 25% off, the Sonos Play:1 hits the sweet spot between price and functionality. The Sonos lineup is considered a benchmark in smart speakers, and their amount of streaming content is second to none. Sonos devices work with many major smart home products, including Alexa, Insteon, Lutron and soon will work with Wink.
Despite its initial tepid reception, the Amazon Tap has gotten better with age. Amazon allowed users to enable hands free mode, so it would listen like its Echo cousins. It was also the first Alexa enabled device to sport Dolby speakers. The Tap is a great option for an on-the-go Bluetooth enabled smart speaker, especially with Amazon blowing them out for 30-50% off this holiday season!
