Smart home systems can cost a lot, so knowing when deals are available can save you money. Electronics go on sale at different times of the year. They’re pretty regular, so mark your calendar, set your alerts and get ready to shop for that next smart system.

Since you’ll be buying different parts of your home system at different times of the year, keep track of them and ensure they’re compatible. Sometimes those sales are final sales, and you don’t want to be stuck with a useless piece of equipment.

We’d hesitate to say wait for a sale to buy a carbon monoxide or smoke detector. Your and your family’s safety is too important to wait to buy those. However, if you want to upgrade, here are some options available to you now.


February is usually the best time to buy a new television. They won’t be the absolute latest model, but smart televisions have been on the market for a number of years, so you can pick up the previous year’s model for a good price.


A smartphone is one of the most important parts of running your smart home, and they go on sale in February. Another way to keep track of smartphone discounts is when companies make their product announcements. Once a delivery date is announced, keep an eye on the previous two models. They’ll go down in price as people clamor for the latest release.

Small appliances

Appliances, like coffee machines, go on sale during April to June. The rationale is that new grads who will be moving to college will need one so they can wake up in the morning. So do you, so take advantage of that discounted coffee machine.

New models come out in July, just in time for the back-to-school crowd. Home systems don’t need the latest laptop, so you can snap up a nice model for a good price. July is also the time to look at tablets, as they offer great functionality and convenient portability.


If you need a new smart refrigerator, May is the time to buy. Other appliances go on sale later in the year during October and November, especially during Black Friday.

Home security systems

Home security systems don’t generally go on sale but you get more options included when you buy a package and often, free installation. Depending on your negotiation skills, you could end with a discount.

Just knowing when to buy items for smart home systems can save you hundreds of dollars. You’ll have a smart home and money in your wallet. Now that’s a good deal!
