Put an Echo Dot in every room with this 3-pack deal for $70

Smart speakers are useful in our daily lives: They help us remember things, answer questions we ask them, and can even control our lights and appliances. They're not cheap, though, and since the least expensive Echo speaker typically costs $50, you have to be selective about which rooms to put them in. However, thanks to this deal on a 3-pack bundle, you can get three third-generation Echo Dots for just $70 and enjoy talking to Alexa anywhere in your house.

Save up to 20% on these color Philips Hue bundles: 5-pack bulbs, switch, and hub for $270, or 3 pendant lamps and bridge for $290

If you were thinking of getting Hue lights, today is your lucky day, as you can save up to 20% on Hue bundles.

But if your house is equipped with a ductless system, like a split air conditioner, window AC, portable or floor standing unit, cassette type, or heat pump, the options are more limited and lesser known.

Over the past year, I've reviewed both the Cielo Breez and Sensibo Sky, two of the best solutions for transforming a regular AC into a connected one. Now Cielo has released two more models: Breez Plus ($109) and Breez Eco ($69).
