Networking gear isn't always the most fun technology when it comes to picking up new tech, but despite the lack of fun, networking gear is a necessity if you want to have a completely connected home and you want to do so with more advanced features. Right now for Black Friday there are some pretty good deals on all kinds of networking gear, and Amazon is offering up to 30 percent off a collection of select networking products from TP-Link from routers to range extenders to smart plugs and smart bulbs.
If you're just starting out with the smart home culture and getting things set up, you may need things like smart lights, smart bulbs, smart plugs and more, and TP-Link has a handful of different items in those categories that are on sale for up to 30 percent off. For example, you can pick up the TP-Link Multi-Color Smart LED Bulb for just $$33.70 right now. With this bulb, which is compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, you can manage the bulb from your smartphone using a companion app and adjust the lighting how you see fit, or you can use your voice with a compatible smart speaker like the Echo or Google Home, or simply talk to the digital assistants that power them through the smartphone.
Amazon also has routers on sale right now for the same discounts. There's the AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Router on sale for just $54.99 which is normally $80. This is dual band as mentioned so that means it can distribute both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless network connectivity, and it's capable of delivering up to gigabit speeds if your internet provider offers that for a service. If you already have a Wi-Fi router in the home but you aren't getting enough coverage, TP-Link has a handful of different Wi-Fi range extenders on sale. The AC750 range extender for example is a dual band range extender and is the perfect pairing with the 1750 dual band router. No matter what type of networking or smart home product you're looking for this holiday season, TP-Link has plenty to choose from with lots of items that would make great gifts, keeping in mind that the 30 percent off is only for today.
