Secure your home with this weatherproof Canary Flex 2-pack camera bundle for $250 ($130 off)

When investing in a security camera, you usually have to pick whether you'll use it indoors or outdoors, mostly because the latter are weatherproof and built to be more durable. Unfortunately, when you move out or decide your security device would have made more sense in another location, you end up having to purchase a new one — or end up with a bulky camera in your house if you went for the outdoor model. Thankfully, Canary's Flex cameras are, as their name might suggest, quite versatile as they work both indoors and outdoors while remaining discreet and resistant to harsh weather conditions.

Get a free Echo Dot and Philips Hue smart bulb when buying an Echo Show for $180 (save $115)

When I set up my smart home infrastructure a couple of years ago, I had to break the bank to buy a smart speaker, connected bulbs, and intelligent plugs. Even though we often share deals that let you save a few bucks on such products, this one is particularly interesting. Indeed, Amazon is throwing in a free Echo Dot speaker and a Philipe Hue bulb with the purchase of an Echo Show smart display. The three products together would cost $295 if purchased separately, but with this offer, you'll only have to pay the Echo Show's price for the whole bundle.

Eufy's brand new 2K Wi-Fi smart doorbell is selling for $112 ($48 off)

Smart doorbells are a convenient way of adding an extra layer of security to your household, but they can be quite pricey and often require an additional monthly subscription. Of course, there are a few inexpensive options, but their resolution is usually limited to 1080p, which is decent, but not on par with new 4K standards. Eufy's approach offers a good compromise with great value for money, thanks to its 2K image quality at a reasonable price and with no monthly fees. The intelligent doorbell normally costs $160, but you can get it for just $112 thanks to this promo code.

The Arlo Ultra is a good security camera with a bad price

You've got numerous choices in connected some security cameras these days, but almost all of them require wires. Running a camera solely on batteries introduces a lot of uncertainty. Will it last long enough? Will it wake up reliably? Arlo, a former Netgear subsidiary, has released several battery-powered cameras that bested the competition, but the new Arlo Ultra is a tougher sell.

This 4K camera has a high upfront cost and higher monthly fees than other devices, but the performance is admittedly impressive. The video is incredible, and the addition of a spotlight is genuinely helpful. After some software updates, the Arlo Ultra is a good product with similar reliability to Arlo's past cameras.
