If you’ve wanted to get started in making your house or apartment into a smart home, here are some great Black Friday deals on devices that support HomeKit to bring more automation to your life.

LIFX Lighting

Lighting producer LIFX’s Color A19 E26 is a great way to get started with smart lighting, providing 1,110 lumens of light and over 550 billion possible color steps, along with a huge white range from 1,500k to 9,000K. It’s available for $34.99, down from $49.99.

The Clean A19 E26 provides the usual benefits of smart lighting, including a range of colors and control via Siri, but with the inclusion of a HEV mode that uses High Energy Visible LEDs to destroy bacteria in the same way as UV light. They are available for $41.98 instead of $69.99.

$34.99, $41.98, $37.99, $23.49 on Amazon, $40.99 on Amazon, $32.99 on Amazon, $29.45 on Amazon, $22 on Amazon, $131.90 on Amazon, $79.95 on Amazon, $233.18 on Amazon, $186.75 on Amazon, $149 on Amazon, $199 on Amazon

For your television, you could add the Z TV Lightstrip 40-inch to the back, providing backlighting and helping protect your eyes. Controllable using Siri and HomeKit, the strip could also be placed anywhere else in the home, such as under cabinets or shelves.

The Z TV Lightstrip is currently priced at $37.99, saving $35.

Meross Bulbs, Switches, and Smart Plugs

Meross’ range of smart home devices cover the gamut of platforms, including support for HomeKit, as well as covering a wide range of device types.

If you want to get started with smart bulbs, the Meross Mart Wi-FI E26 Multi-color LED bulb packs could be a great way to add smart lighting to your home, cheaply. A two-pack costs $23.49 on Amazon, down from $28.99 if you use the on-page coupon, while you could save $9 on a four-pack using another on-page coupon, making it $40.99 on Amazon.

$34.99, $41.98, $37.99, $23.49 on Amazon, $40.99 on Amazon, $32.99 on Amazon, $29.45 on Amazon, $22 on Amazon, $131.90 on Amazon, $79.95 on Amazon, $233.18 on Amazon, $186.75 on Amazon, $149 on Amazon, $199 on Amazon

While you could control those bulbs using Siri, it’s nice to have some tactile switches in the room itself. The Meross Smart Light Switch two-pack is normally $40.99, but with the on-page coupon, it’s $32.99 on Amazon. Be aware that you need a neutral wire to work with your existing light switch fitting.

If you have lamps and other small devices that you want to remotely turn on and off, then you should look at the company’s collection of smart plugs. The Smart Wi-Fi Dual Plug doubles the number of devices that can connect to an outlet, as well as providing HomeKit control over each. Normally $30.99, the two-pack is $29.45 on Amazon using the on-page coupon.

If you don’t need the expansion and just want control, the two-pack of the Smart Plug Mini is down from $25 at $22 on Amazon using the on-page coupon.

Lutron Smart Switches

If you want to get a bunch of smart switches for your smart home network, it’s hard to go wrong than to pick up the Lutron Caseta Deluxe Smart Dimmer Switch Kit. Able to work with Alexa and Google Assistant, it also includes support for HomeKit.

The kit contains two dimmers meant to be mounted to the wall, along with wallplates to help improve the appearance on the wall itself. Unlike other switches, Lutron designed the dimmers so that they work without needing the neutral wire, so they will work in practically any home.

$34.99, $41.98, $37.99, $23.49 on Amazon, $40.99 on Amazon, $32.99 on Amazon, $29.45 on Amazon, $22 on Amazon, $131.90 on Amazon, $79.95 on Amazon, $233.18 on Amazon, $186.75 on Amazon, $149 on Amazon, $199 on Amazon

Also in the kit is the Lutron hub, for connecting the switches to the network. There are also a pair of Pico Remotes in the pack, allowing you to perform the same controls as the switch but away from the wall itself.

The kit costs $131.90 on Amazon, but the entire package is valued at over $200 if bought separately.

Lutron also offers the Caseta Smart Start Kit in a smaller package consisting of a Pico remote, an adapter for storing the Pico Remote in a wall as if it’s a switch, and the Lutron Hub. That package costs $79.95 on Amazon

Level Lock Smart Locks

While many will consider using smart bulbs and smart plugs in their smart home setup, not everyone will think about the security of their home. Using a smart lock, you could lock and unlock a door using your iPhone.

The Level Lock Smart Lock Touch Edition provides keyless entry to a home by touching a keycard or their iPhone to the lock. You could also unlock the door using the dedicated app, or manually with a key. HomeKit support enables you to monitor and control the locks as well.

$34.99, $41.98, $37.99, $23.49 on Amazon, $40.99 on Amazon, $32.99 on Amazon, $29.45 on Amazon, $22 on Amazon, $131.90 on Amazon, $79.95 on Amazon, $233.18 on Amazon, $186.75 on Amazon, $149 on Amazon, $199 on Amazon

The entire setup is also compact, with it held within the door itself and not requiring bulky external boxes on the in-home side of the door. Normally $329, it is currently available for $233.18 on Amazon

A more value-conscious option is the Level Lock Smart Lock, which provides keyless entry over Bluetooth via an app, as well as with a key and through HomeKit. Normally $249, it’s priced at $186.75 on Amazon

Lastly, the Level Bolt Smart Lock provides the same benefits as the Bluetooth-enabled version, but with the addition of it being an invisible upgrade to a door. Replacing an existing deadbolt, the lock can be used with an app to unlock the door, as well as through HomeKit, while also functioning as a standard deadbolt.

Normally $199, the Level Bolt Smart Lock costs $149 on Amazon.

Ecobee Smart Thermostats

One of the best ways to use HomeKit is to manage the heating of your home, as you could instruct Siri to warm up the house, or cut the heating to cool it down, without needing to get up and to walk to the thermostat controls.

The Ecobee3 Lite can be controlled using an iOS or Android device, complete with HomeKit support. When used with appropriate sensors, including Ecobee’s own and other HomeKit-supporting versions, the thermostat could automatically make changes, such as automatically turning on or off if a window or door is open, or based on the temperature of a different room.

$34.99, $41.98, $37.99, $23.49 on Amazon, $40.99 on Amazon, $32.99 on Amazon, $29.45 on Amazon, $22 on Amazon, $131.90 on Amazon, $79.95 on Amazon, $233.18 on Amazon, $186.75 on Amazon, $149 on Amazon, $199 on Amazon

According to Ecobee, this could help save up to 26% annually on a home’s heating and cooling costs.

Normally $179, the Ecobee3 Lite costs $149 on Amazon.

The Echobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control takes things further in that it can take commands for Siri and Alexa itself, without needing you to tell an Echo device or speaking to your iPhone or iPad. It also includes a SmartSensor to detect the presence of people in a room, further allowing it to fine-tune whether it needs to turn the heating on or off.

Usually $249, the Ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control costs $199 on Amazon.
