Best Memorial Day home security cam deals

Arlo/CNET

This Arlo Pro cam is currently one of our favorite picks for wireless and outdoor security cameras, a complete package with high resolution, a spotlight, great smart home compatibility, and plenty of other bells and whistles. But it’s very expensive… until this deal, which drops the price by nearly 30%. If you’re interested in only one cam and want it to be one of the best available, think about taking advantage of this discount.

Blink/CNET

The Blink Outdoor 4 is one of our favorite all-purpose outdoor cameras. It offers an easy app for controls, AA lithium batteries rated for two years of work and a hub for local storage is included. Blink subscription fees for advanced object detection and storage are lower than most at around $3 per month, too. Keep in mind that, like Ring, this is an Alexa-only cam.

Blink/CNET

The affordable Blink Mini 2 is even more affordable with this deal, and the little cam comes packed with features like a mini spotlight, two-way audio, night vision and motion detection. It’s an ideal cam for a more limited space, and with an outdoor cable you can mount it outside as well. 

Ring/CNET

Ring’s Stick Up Cam Battery version is one of our favorite picks for a versatile shelf cam that you can pick up to watch the kids or pets wherever they are, inside or out (it also has a mounting option). Ring offers highly customizable motion detection along with two-way audio and night vision. As an Amazon brand, it’s an excellent fit for Alexa, too. 

Eufy/CNET

While it’s a little more expensive than budget cams, this EufyCam is 40% off with an unprecedented opportunity to get rare features like Apple Home compatibility and object recognition with no additional fee. It also offers a 2K resolution and IP67 weatherproof rating, as well as night vision. You don’t usually see a high-end outdoor cam at this price, but keep in mind, if you want video storage, you’ll need to buy a Eufy hub and microSD card. Or you could choose this two-cam Eufy package that comes with a hub and is $110 off thanks to a similar deal. 

Lorex/CNET

Lorex is currently our go-to choice for local storage-only cameras that stay off the cloud (and can even stay off the internet altogether). This spotlight camera can do a little bit of everything, including object detection, and thanks to Lorex’s sitewide Memorial Day sale, it’s one of the many cameras available with a discount. 

Ring/CNET

Ring’s HD video doorbell may not be quite as advanced as its latest Pro model, but this battery doorbell still does a great job of surveying the porch — without quite as many settings to muddle through. At this hefty discount it’s one of the most affordable, quality doorbells currently available for those who prefer to save. Important extras like two-way audio and night vision are included, but video storage will cost extra.

Blink’s doorbell was already one of the most affordable models. With this deal it’s one of the best cheap video doorbells you’ll find — at least for now. Even at this discount, it still has key features like two-way audio, custom alerts, wireless installation and more. You can add a Sync Module 2 for local storage if you prefer to stay off subscriptions.

Petcube/CNET

Pet cameras can watch out for intruders, but their primary focus is the Fidos and Felixes in our homes. They can be expensive purchases, but this sale cuts the price by nearly a third. This HD camera has Alexa built in and can provide motion and audio alerts, along with night vision. It even has one of those little treat dispensers to interact with your pet — just don’t overfeed them when you’re away. 

Did you know? We have an Amazon Storefront with some of the best Memorial Day deals available.

Best Memorial Day home security bundle deals

TP-Link/CNET

TP-Link’s affordable Tapo system includes two 2K-resolution cams and a connection hub, ideal for a front-and-back camera setup at your home. The cameras are weatherproofed, come with 49-foot night vision, and allow you to set activity zones for identifying people, pets and vehicles. They’re all-purpose outdoor security cams that can fill many roles, although you may want to grab a microSD card if you don’t plan on using the Tapo subscription service.

Ring/CNET

Ring is one of our top picks for easy DIY installation if you want a speedy system equipped with door and window sensors. The five-piece model is a perfect starting point, and this bundle throws in the Ring video doorbell for front door protection as well. A Ring subscription (starting at $5) is a very good idea, but it’s still an excellent choice for a discounted starter kit.

Ecobee/CNET

If you’re a fan of Ecobee (its products work reliable with Apple HomeKit, Alexa and more) you can deck your home out in Ecobee security and a smart thermostat with this deal. Save on a start sensor pack, an Ecobee video doorbell and the Thermostat Premium. That’s a good combo if you’ve experimented with Ecobee products before and are ready to jump into a whole smart home setup. Note that the doorbell is wired in this pack.

Simplisafe/CNET

Finding a large home security system can feel frustrating if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars and risk getting locked into a contract. Using this hefty discount, this SimpliSafe system is available for less than $300 — and while a monitoring subscription is available, you can choose to self-monitor and waive the monthly fees.

Included in this kit is a base station, keypad, pack of entry sensors, motion sensor, key fob, siren and smoke detector. That makes it an effective DIY way to outfit a new home or apartment that’s never had security tech before.

Eufy/CNET

Eufy is doing a sitewide sale to celebrate both its anniversary and Memorial Day, with major deals off its camera bundles, all the way up to several hundred dollars off a camera three- or four-pack. We Eufy cameras fori ts free object recognition and on-board storage so you can skip the subscription if you want. Eufy cams tend to be compact with high resolutions, too — but you’ll need to act fast before these sell out.

This solar powered set incudes four eufyCam 3 and a 1 TB harddrive. Note that the $380 discount is available with code WS24T88731TBSP, which will be automatically applied when you add it to your cart.

Best Memorial Day smart lock deals 

Aqara/CNET

Aqara’s U100 smart lock is one of the best locks we’ve reviewed, and you can find it on sale with this discount that drops it below $200. Considering the lock offers every type of control from fingerprints and codes to digital passes (and a hefty deadbolt replacement), that’s a good deal. It’s even better if you’re an Apple user, since Aqara works natively with Apple HomeKit. Add a hub and you can get Matter support along with Google Assistant and Alexa. 

August Home/CNET

August’s durable smart construction often comes with a price to match, but this deal lets you get a fourth-generation August smart lock on more affordable terms. The Wi-Fi smart lock fits onto your existing deadbolt, providing it with app management including the ability to share digital keys. You can also set schedules or make sure the door automatically locks after a certain period of time. The lock also has excellent compatibility, working with platforms including Alexa, HomeKit, Google Home and Samsung SmartThings.

Best Memorial Day deals on smart home tech

Amazon/CNET

An Echo Show pairs well with any compatible security camera or video doorbell (Blink, Ring, Arlo, Google Nest, etc.), showing you a live view via a quick Alexa voice command, and letting you talk through devices without using the app. This is the most affordable we’ve seen the excellent Echo Show 8 with a 33% discount. You can also use that screen for video chats, YouTube videos, Amazon Prime shows, looking up recipes, catching the news and much more.

With Google’s Nest Hub, second-generation, you can pair it with Nest cameras and doorbells and view them from your hub. If you buy the Nest Aware subscription (starts at $8/month) it will also alert you on your phone when you aren’t home if it hears breaking glass, a smoke alarm or other unusual sounds that may mean a safety risk is occurring at your home. In addition to the safety features, it also works as a smart assistant for your home, allowing you to voice activate music, lights and other smart devices as well as display videos and more.

Check out our full review of the Google Nest Hub, 2nd Gen to see more of its capabilities.

Emdak/CNET

If you’re looking for simpler security tech, these little doorstops sound an alarm when they’re activated. That’s it — they just help you know when a door has been opened. Sometimes that’s all you need, and at under $15 this pair is currently a very good deal.

Best Memorial Day sale security platform pick

Cove/CNET

Cove’s offers DIY security systems with an onsite kit builder to quickly customize your home security sensors, leak detectors, cameras and other important add-ons. Cove is a good pick for those who want a hybrid of traditional home security (subscriptions and professional monitoring are generally required with Cove) with the ease of DIY setup and no contracts. Sign up to get 70% off qualifying systems and Cove will throw in a free camera, too.

What is the best time to buy home security devices?

While prices fluctuate year round, the best prices on home security devices including cameras and smart locks, is often during Amazon’s Prime Day, held each year in early July, when Amazon slashes prices and its competitors step up to match those. Black Friday and holiday sales also bring some great prices, but Memorial Day sales remain competitive, which means if you’re shopping for a home security device, now is the best time to snag a deal before midsummer. 

How we choose the best Memorial Day security device deals 

At CNET we have a team of expert shoppers and deal-hunters with years of experience. Our goal is to make sure buyers understand which major sales and deals are legitimately good and which are more routine, such as Black Friday, Prime Day, Memorial Day and countless other shopping events. We’ve gotten very good at weeding out scams and superficial deals so you see only the best offers on security devices from retailers all over. 

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing a deal to show you.

– Real discounts mean exactly that. We look at the price history for that product to make sure no manufacturers are inflating prices to make the discount seem more substantial than it is.
– Reviews are important for any product, but especially for deeply discounted items. If an item breaks the first time you use it, the deal isn’t a good one at any price.
– Remaining sale time is a huge part of our vetting process. If a deal seems like it will only be around for a short while or will only be available for the remaining stock, we’ll let you know upfront so you don’t come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.

We keep our articles as up to date as possible to bring you the best current prices.
