Ahead of this week’s full-blown Black Friday discounts, Amazon is offering some notable price drops on GE Z-Wave Plus accessories. Most notably, the In-Wall Smart Toggle Switch at $25.71 shipped has caught our eye. It’s down to a new Amazon all-time low, with today’s offer taking nearly $10 off the going rate. Alternatively, you can step up to the In-Wall Paddle Dimmer Switch at $29.33. That takes $5 off its usual price tag and comes within cents of the Amazon low. Both carry 3.9/5 star ratings from thousands. Head below for even more Z-Wave Plus compatible smart home gear.
Update 11/19 @5:00 PM: Amazon offers the GE Z-Wave Dual-Outlet Smart Plug for $28.53 shipped. That’s good for a $16 discount and is a new all-time low. Upgrade to the two-outlet and two USB port model for $42.98. That’s good for a $9 discount and is also a new low. Both carry 3.9/5 star ratings from over 450 customers.
Amazon is also discounting the GE Z-Wave Plus Outdoor Smart Plug. Normally selling for closer to $40, today you’ll find it on sale for $27.19. Better yet, it’s at a new all-time low and carries a 4.1/5 star rating. Those just getting started with their Z-Wave smart home have a few different options to use as hubs. Right now we’re tracking a new Amazon all-time low on the Samsung third generation SmartThings Hub at $62.99 shipped. That’s good for a $7 discount, and alongside including Z-Wave support, also works with ZigBee and more.
For a smart home owner who enjoys tinkering, the Aeotec Z-Stick is my personal favorite option at $45. It pairs with a Raspberry Pi and gives a greater level of control over your devices compared to Samsung’s option. Looking for more tips on getting started?
