In our guide to the best smart monitors, we say that the Lenovo Smart Clock is perfect for a bedroom. Since the display is for the small side, it works especially well on a bedside table or dresser. The interface is minimal but still useful, and provides quick information on important reminders or weather updates (as well as the timing). The numbers displayed are dimmed while you sleep, and you can charge your phone using the USB-A port on the back of the screen. Less clutter on the bedside table means more space for water glasses! The bare-bones Smart Clock Essential is also on sale for $ 30 ($ 15 off).

In our review, we say that the medium-sized Google Nest Audio Smart Speaker (8/10, WIRED recommends) has both great sound and a discreet design. It is highlighted as an option that adds a lot of value in the guide to the best Google Assistant speakers. Basically, buyers get the most for their money – and now that it’s $ 40 off, that’s especially true.

Shopping in a way that matches your morale can be difficult. Therefore, we try to include more dealer options whenever possible! With a device made directly by Facebook (or “Meta”), it can be a bit more difficult. As a company, Facebook has been subjected to a lot of public control. When removed from its maker, Portal Go (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a good gadget, and this is the best price we’ve seen. It is especially handy for video chat, whether it is with long-distance relatives or with colleagues. If you want to buy one, this deal is a treat. Should you not, there are some other products on sale that might fit better.

Like the aforementioned Portal Go, the Facebook portal is super convenient for video calling. It is also made by Facebook. These go on sale a few times during the year; $ 79 is the lowest price WIRED has tracked. Here is our full review.

These cool hexagonal bulbs are included in our guide to the best smart bulbs. I have one in my office and love it. There are plenty of options on the market, so check out that guide next to further choices. A single bulb is usually sold for $ 20, which means that this deal is like getting a bulb for free. Do not need three? Single bulbs are also for sale.

Although we have not officially reviewed it, associate editor Parker Hall believes that this device is more than good enough to be his main thermostat. Nest thermostats are generally practical and reliable. Their intelligent planning features help cut down on the cost of things like heating a house when no one is home. Utilities often also offer discounts to install them, so it can be even cheaper in the long run.
Goal, Best buy, Walmart
With a few routers selling for $ 139 and it’s a bargain, it’s a steal to snatch two for $ 179. There are newer and faster routers on the market, but that should do the trick for most homes, especially considering the price. Here is the detailed review. Just keep in mind that there is no support for Wi-Fi 6, so these are not as future-proof as some other options.
Arlo Pro 4 is our favorite choice for the best outdoor security camera. This bundle includes three cameras, respective batteries and some extra parts like a yard sign and anti-theft bracket, all for the same price that it would normally cost to buy two of these cameras separately. The price here is hard to beat, especially for people who planned to buy any of the components individually.
Goal, Best buy, Bed Bath & Beyond
This Google Assistant camera also made our list of the best outdoor security cameras. It will blend seamlessly with homes that already have (or will do so in the future) Google Assistant devices. The camera works as intended when the easy, tenant-friendly installation is complete, and we like the wide-angle display combined with motion detection. The battery lasts for a while – about a month – and we believe that the subscription of $ 6 per. month is worth it for the extra features. You can read more about the camera in our roundup.

Google Chromecast With Google TV (8/10, WIRED Review) may have an annoying name, but it’s still a top choice on our list of the best 4K streaming devices. It’s great for Google TV and phone streaming. It has Google Assistant built-in, and allows you to search for a program or movie to find out which of the many streaming services has the content you want to watch.
Lovebox (enter BLACKFRIDAY at checkout)
Lovebox is a great gift for friends or family from a long distance. This is highlighted in our guide to the best stress-relieving gifts. It allows for thoughtful, conscious encouraging words, almost like a digital hug. SMS may work just as well, but Lovebox adds a special connection element that some other gadgets lack.

Burrows Black Friday sale offers a 10 percent discount, with additional savings based on how much you spend. We tested the Arch Nomad Sectional, which is a model that includes a chaise longue and therefore costs a little more, and included it in our guide to the best sofas. All configurations are for sale and they all have quick assembly and soft, comfortable cushions.
This deal applies to more products than just the Sactional line, but the custom, comfortable products are our favorites from Lovesac. Sactionalen is part of our guide to the best sofas. We also really like the new and optional Stealthtech upgrade (8/10, WIRED recommends), even though it’s extremely expensive – so it’s better to get it while it’s for sale.
Fully, Amazon (click on the coupon button)
Fully Jarvis’ standing desk has been a favorite of a WIRED Gear team for a while. It’s the best choice in our Work From Home Gear Guide. The discounts are matched at Amazon on most options. Just be sure to cut the corresponding coupon on the page.
Do you need a new bed? Now is one of the best times to shop. Mattresses are sold many times throughout the year, but Black Friday means the deals can be even better than they would be during events like Memorial Day. We have a separate story dedicated to the best bedding.
Be sure to check the coupon box just below the price to get this discount, which beats last year’s Black Friday deal by $ 100. The WIRED Gear team loves this robot vacuum cleaner. It also acts as a mop, helping it remove any evidence that hardwood floors have ever been dusty in the first place.
We wrote a separate story dedicated to this deal when it first went live and after a short break it is back. Technically, it is not a smart vacuum cleaner, but it converts from a handheld vacuum cleaner to a handheld vacuum cleaner. It also came on our list of the best Dyson vacuum cleaners. Even though it lacks voice assistance and there is no smartphone app, we still think it is an intelligent purchase.
Robot vacuum cleaners have different functions here or varying capacities there, but the bottom line is that they offer a convenient way to keep up with the daily vacuuming. In general, we like iRobot models. The E5 5150 has special brushes for gathering pet hair, and it’s smart enough to base its cleaning plans on your daily routines. Our list of the best robotic vacuum cleaners has additional recommendations.
This botvac was $ 50 cheaper earlier in the week, and although it may fall back in price again, it’s still a bargain – the $ 550 price was the lowest we’ve seen. Roomba i7 + (9/10, WIRED recommends) has a number of enticing bells and whistles, not least its self-defeating behavior. Check out our full review for more info.
This self-emptying robot vacuum cleaner / mop keeps your floors clean with minimal effort. We mention it in our guide to the best robotic vacuum cleaners. The on-page coupon brings the price lower than we have seen before. Add to basket for trade.
This is the best cheap robot vacuum cleaner, and thanks to the cut coupon on the page, it is cheaper than ever. It runs for more than 100 minutes at a time and it can deftly navigate obstacles like cords or stray socks.
