Sonos is currently marking down a selection of its products in refurbished condition. All items ship with a 1-year warranty and a 45-day return period. Our top pick would be the Sonos One (1st Generation) for $139 shipped. Originally $199, this smart speaker now goes for $179 in new condition and is on sale for $170 right now. I have two of these speakers on my desk and absolutely love them. Sporting AirPlay 2, you’ll enjoy near a near lag-free audio experience when using them with your Mac, iPhone, or Apple TV. This past week I used two Sonos Play:1’s (also on sale) matched with the Sonos Beam for a surround-sound experience and it was fantastic. Keep reading for more deals or head to Sonos to view it all. Rated 3.8/5 stars.

While offering a large variety of options for NAS and extended storage, Synology’s Surveillance Station, a part of its DiskStorage Manager, offers free storage for two cameras and is flexible enough to work for everyone from the homeowner to large business applications. If you’ve been thinking about adding a NAS like the DS918+ to your home as a backup solution or media server, that NAS can also serve as a surveillance station. Configuring said NAS inside DiskStorage Manager can be a little overwhelming if you’re not familiar with it, like me, but Synology does a good job of walking you through getting everything setup.
