Controlling different facets of your home using your smartphone and Siri feels a little bit like stepping into the future, and now it's easier than ever to get started. Just in time for the holidays, get solid discounts on a wide range of HomeKit-compatible smart home products, from lights you can tune to the holiday season, to sensors that'll let you know just how frigid those temperatures are.

These are great accessories to get to make your home smarter, especially now that they're on sale. Personally, I'd pick up one or two of the WeMo Mini smart plug (opens in new tab). It's the easiest way to bring some intelligence into your home, and you don't have to replace any appliances. Also, the Away Mode setting is a clever idea to deter burglars.
