Best Black Friday home security deals: Nest, Ring, August and more

From video doorbells to smart locks — these are the best Black Friday home security deals so far.

The holiday season is the perfect time to install home security cameras and video doorbells — especially since porch pirates can derail your delivery-dependent schedules. Plus, a smart lock or smart speaker makes a solid holiday gift. Luckily, it’s also the best time to find great sales on home security devices and systems.

If you’re in the market for connected home security gadgets, like ones that work with your Alexa- or Google Assistant-compatible smart speakers or displays, there are also loads of options. Plus there will only be more sales as we get closer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday proper. Check out Best Buy’s new early Black Friday sale, some early favorites at Target and Walmart’s early Black Friday sales for more. 

Here are the best home security deals we’ve found so far.

Ring’s Video Doorbell Wired is already a pretty solid deal at $60, but right now it’s down to a mere $42, making it one of the most affordable video doorbells on the market. Sure, it doesn’t have all the smarts of those $250 smart buzzers (like radar and the like), but you’ll get reliable performance, 1080p resolution, 2-way talk and all the other basics you’d expect from a video doorbell in 2021.

With the coupon code “BF90” you can now get $90 off August’s Smart Lock Pro — a solid lock with tons of extra goodies, like support for the Z-Wave radio protocol, letting it work with lots of smart home gadgets. The one downside: it doesn’t work with WiFi.

Google Nest’s latest video doorbell is a solid gadget for Google-lovers. It performs well, doesn’t require wiring and comes with a lineup of free features like smart alerts and three hours of clip history. For $130, this is a solid deal.

The Arlo Pro 4 is one of the best security cameras on the market, between its 2K live streaming, cooperation with Alexa and Google Assistant and excellent extras, like a spotlight and siren. Now you can buy a three-pack for $200 off — which is quite the steal, if you’ve been thinking about overhauling your home monitoring setup.

Blink’s super-affordable line of home security gadgets are always pretty wallet-friendly, but the Blink Mini is almost half off right now, at only $20. Sure it doesn’t have all the extra goodies of more luxurious smart cams, but if you’re looking for a solid performer at an unbeatable price, this is your pick.

It may not seem like the most obvious home security gadget, but a smart speaker like the Amazon Echo Dot can actually buff up your home security. Alexa Guard allows your smart speaker to listen for telltale signs of security problems, like breaking glass. And if you upgrade to Alexa Guard Plus, which costs $5 per month, it adds plenty of other skills, like playing the sounds of dogs barking as a deterrent to would-be burglars.
