While Apple sells quite a lot of HomeKit gear, you're probably already aware this it's not necessarily the best place to buy from when it comes to price. You're much more likely to get a great HomeKit deal at a third-party retailer like Amazon or Best Buy this Black Friday rather than going directly to Apple. We have been seeing a ton of stellar Black Friday HomeKit deals this year and we'll be keeping tabs on the best ongoing offers on this page, though the below retailers are a good place to start if you're ready to search for some deals on your own.
- Amazon: HomeKit accessories galore with low prices
- Best Buy: slightly less choice for HomeKit, but competitive prices for Black Friday
- Walmart: likely to match Amazon prices where possible
- B&H: Competitive pricing and potential tax savings
- Target: 5% extra RedCard discount
When do Black Friday HomeKit deals begin?
Black Friday HomeKit deals are here right now! Sales are going on at all the major retailers so you can save in pretty much every device category for a limited time. Whether you're looking for security cameras, smart lighting, smart plugs, or even a HomeKit-enabled TV, you can keep some extra cash in your pocket.
Best HomeKit speaker deals
When it comes to HomeKit-connected speakers, you basically have two options: the original HomePod or the HomePod mini. The former has been officially discontinued so your best bet for deals will be refurbished offerings and the latter rarely goes on sale. That being said, we're hoping to see some Black Friday HomePod deals soon.
Not only does this deal include a HomePod mini with six months of free Apple Music, but it also comes with not one but two Nanoleaf Essentials Smart LED Lightstrips. You'll get a 1M and a 2M strip, both offering white and colored lights. These lights usually retail at $75 for the pair but come with this bundle for less than $50.
These Nanoleaf essentials A19 smart LED bulbs come in a three-pack, usually for $50. However, if you pick up a HomePod mini at Best Buy you can get them for just $40. The lights work with HomeKit, so the HomePod mini is the perfect hub to control them with, making this bundle a perfect smart home starter kit.
Very similar to the previous deal, this will net you a HomePod mini with Apple's AirPods featuring a wireless charging case for just $250, a saving of $50 when bought together.
Best HomeKit security deals
There are a lot of security devices for HomeKit, from cameras to motion sensors and more. We expect that plenty of these accessories will go on sale this holiday season as people look to stock up. We particularly recommend using this time of year to make the most of Black Friday HomeKit camera deals as these devices can be pretty pricey the rest of the year.
eufy's 2C Pro wireless outdoor camera system covers all the bases and more with HD video, weather resistance, and an integrated spotlight. The spotlight allows the camera to stream at night in color, and with HomeKit, you can use it with other accessories through automation.
Aqara's G2H combines a solid HomeKit Secure Video camera experience with Zigbee hub functionality that makes it so much more than its playful appearance and price suggest. Blazing fast live view speeds, and superb reliability, put it at the top of the HomeKit camera list.
August's fourth-generation Smart Lock is a unique solution for those who want to add smart convenience to their home without changing their hardware. The August lock replaces your existing deadbolt on the inside, keeping your original look outside. Once set up, this lock connects directly to HomeKit via Bluetooth connectivity, enabling a secure local connection without needing the cloud.
The Abode Iota Home Security Kit includes everything you need to get started with securing your home. This handy kit consists of a mini door and window sensor, key fob, and the all-important Gateway that houses a built-in camera, siren, and backup battery. In addition, Abode's kit allows you to go completely DIY, or you can tack on professional monitoring for a small monthly fee.
Just like the Iota, the Abode Smart Security Kit gives you a great start with professional monitoring or DIY security by bundling several accessories into one affordable package. This kit includes the Abode Gateway with battery backup, a mini door and window sensor, a keyfob, and a motion sensor. Unlike the Iota, however, the Gateway in this bundle lacks a built-in camera and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Best HomeKit lighting deals
Gone are the days of having just one or two choices when it came to HomeKit lighting. There are now several options on the market so you can get bulbs, light strips, panels, smart switches, and more. We're hoping many of these will also go on sale this month so you can smarten up more areas of your home for less.
The Meross Smart Wi-Fi Light Strip blankets up to 16.4 feet in colorful goodness. This light strip connects with HomeKit over Wi-Fi without the need for a hub, and once up and running, you can change colors via Siri, the Home app, or the Meross app. It's 30% off with the on-page coupon.
Lutron Caseta Smart Start Kit | $20 off
Get started with smart home lighting with everything you need in the Caseta Smart Start kit. It works with HomeKit so you can control it from any of your HomeKit speakers or your phone. The dimmer switch also means you have a convenient physical switch whenever you need it. You can even set up more switches on the same hub down the line.
Lutron Caseta Deluxe Smart Dimmer Switch (2 Count) Kit | $31 off
If you're past testing the waters and ready to replace multiple switches, this deluxe kit comes with a hub and two dimmer switches. With this kit, you can set up both your front door and back door lights so you're never stuck outside in the dark looking for your keys.
Best HomeKit smart plug deals
When you need to bring a dumb appliance into your smart home, a HomeKit smart plug is what you need. You can get these to work indoors or out, depending on your needs, making this one of the easiest ways to smarten up your home.
Belkin's Wemo mini features a slim profile that won't block the other plug on the wall, allowing two of them to be used in a single outlet. You don't need a hub; simply connect to HomeKit, Alexa, or Google Assistant and the Wemo app on iOS and Android. The Wemo Mini is also UL certified. It's $12 off at Walmart.
The ConnectSense smart in-wall outlet offers all of the features of typical smart plugs, but you install it in place of your current outlet. If you want convenience without bulk, you'll love the fast response times, reliable connectivity, independent controls, and energy monitoring. While it's not cheap, it does offer a more seamless look. Save 10% at Amazon.
Best HomeKit HVAC deals
For a lot of folks, getting some smart heating and cooling set up in their homes is the first thing to solve with HomeKit. Thankfully, there are a lot of HomeKit thermostats and temparature sensors to help you on your way, and many of them will be discounted for Black Friday.
The Honeywell Lyric T5 may look like a traditional programmable thermostat, but it works with modern voice assistants, including Siri and HomeKit. This thermostat includes app-based scheduling and geofencing capabilities that automatically set the temperature according to whether or not you are home — saving you money in the long run.
The ecobee SmartThermostat is the ultimate combination of convenience and power. Even though it works with all voice assistants, a built-in microphone houses Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri, allowing you to shout out temperature and mode adjustments. Also included is a remote temperature sensor, enabling the thermostat to use your most important rooms as the true indicator of when to turn on your home's heating and cooling.
Emerson Sensi Touch Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Touchscreen Color Display
Emerson's Sensi Touch thermostat features a sizeable widescreen touch display making on-device adjustments quick and easy. Speaking of changes, the Sensi Touch has quick access shortcuts to standard features such as turning on your house fan directly from the home screen. The Sensi Touch also includes a backlight option that lights the area around it at night, preventing it from lighting up your room.
