Samsung's starter kit for their SmartThings smart home system is currently available on Newegg at a pretty decent price. It's being sold at $219, which is down from its regular price of $249. And on top of that, Newegg is throwing in a free $20 gift card with your purchase. There's no promo code required, but this deal won't last long. Newegg is not stating how long it'll be available, other than for a "limited time".
The Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit includes the second-generation hub, as well as a sensor, outlet, motion sensor and then two multi-purpose sensors. Allowing you to keep an eye on your home. The motion sensor could be used to detect motion and then turn on the lights. For example, if it detects motion in your living room, SmartThings could turn on the lights in the living room. Additionally, SmartThings works with most other platforms out there right now, and even has support for Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant. So you can control your home with your voice, which seems to be the next big thing right now.
You can pick up the Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring kit from the link below. Newegg, unfortunately is not offering free shipping on this item. Shipping will cost you $3.99. Which is still not a bad price for fast shipping, anyways.
