If you're looking for a way to secure your home or small business or if you already have an Arlo system in place and want to expand it, there's a nice deal over on Amazon for a 2-pack of the Arlo Q 1080p cameras.
These are AC-powered security cams with 130deg wide-angle lenses, night vision, motion detection and activity zones, optional 24/7 recording, 7 days of free storage (upgradable), 2-way audio. They're not weather-proof and can't work without power, so you will be limited a little in where you place them, but they should do the job indoors. The cams can be scheduled to arm and disarm, but if you want more flexibility over their control, you can integrate them with SmartThings, Wink, IFTTT, Stringify, and Telguard. Read More
Despite some functionality still missing, like the ability to set reminders, the Google Home is still a good device. It has a solid speaker, supports a wide variety of smart home devices (not as large as Alexa, but rapidly catching up), and can also serve as a Chromecast Audio. If you want to buy two of them, you can now do so for $229 - $15 off each Home. Read More
Boom boom goes the speaker and megaboom goes its price. If you want big sound in a portable Bluetooth speaker, UE's MEGABOOM is a great place to start, especially if you have the dough to finance it. The waterproof and shockproof speaker is often a little discounted past its $299.99 MSRP, but it always hovers around the $240 mark like it is currently on Amazon.
But if you don't mind getting a refurbished unit, there's a nicer deal to be had at Best Buy. It's offering a refurb UE MEGABOOM for $139.99, with 2-year warranty for parts and labor, and covered under Best Buy's Return and Exchange promise. Read More
Gadgets, they are everywhere. From your TV to your gaming console, set-top box, sound system, AC units, and more, there are more and more things in our houses that need a remote control. Some of us manage to live with that mess, but others just want one gadget to rule them all... and then some. After all, we also need to control the smart lights, the thermostat, and the smart plugs, don't we? For you and me, there's a new deal up on Best Buy for the Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home.
First, let's get something straight: this is a discontinued model. A couple of years ago, it was the top of the line Harmony remote, offering both IR control of up to 15 devices and WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity for your smart gadgets. Read More
Ever since Google has allowed apps to momentarily dip to free on the Play Store, we've seen a large number of icon packs, games, and apps test out the model. The latest is Zombie City Defense, a tower defense game where your goal is to protect your city against hordes of zombies. The holographic look is quite futuristic and less grim than most apocalyptic zombie titles, and the game offers 3 difficulty levels with an infinite mode, various city maps, infantry units, vehicles, adversaries, and more.

These days, it's not too hard to find a good deal on a smartphone. Whether you purchase a new device from a carrier or retailer or a secondhand one off of eBay or Craigslist, there's usually a decent chunk of change that can be saved with just a few clicks around the web.

We've got one here for you, though; B&H has exclusively partnered with Android Police to offer the unlocked LG V20, plus a free LG 360 CAM, for just $499.99 - a $500 savings over MSRP. Read More
Connected cameras are everywhere nowadays. From Dropcam and Nest, to Canary, Logi, Arlo, Blink, Piper, a lot of companies are trying to make a great security camera for indoor and outdoor — and maybe business — use, but they all rely on their own proprietary software and lock you into their ecosystems and apps. Amcrest is part of a different breed of cams that cater more to the DIY crowd. Read More
It isn't difficult to find a decent-sounding pair of headphones for under or around $100 these days, but they almost always have some shortfalls. Some are too heavy, some are uncomfortable in general, and some are poorly made. However, if you're a casual listener who's looking for a decent set of cans for on-the-go listening, Bose's SoundTrue around-ear headphones II are a great choice, especially at their newly discounted price of $99.99.
