This is the season to find some serious bargains on smart home gear. Black Friday and its close cousin, Cyber ​​Monday, have long been the best times to get a deal on smart lighting, smart locks, robot vacuum cleaners, security cameras, and smart speakers, to name a few .

With the new Matter smart home standard on the horizon (yes, technically it’s here, but there are still very few devices you can actually buy), it’s worth being a little critical when choosing buy bargains if you plan to take advantage of the new interoperability protocol. (Which means if you want all your devices to work with all the different smart home platforms by default). That’s why we’ve highlighted deals on gadgets that work with Matter or, if not, gadgets that work with all major platforms.

Some device categories are not yet on the Matter bandwagon, including cameras and robot vacuum cleaners. We’re not going to tell you to wait – if you need them, now’s definitely the time to buy them, because there are some seriously good deals to be had.

Matter is a new smart home standard that makes it easier for your gadgets to work with each other and with whatever platform you want to control them from – from Amazon Alexa and Google Home to Apple Home and Samsung SmartThings.

Matter devices need a Matter controller and those using Thread – a protocol that runs Matter – need a Thread border router. Black Friday is the perfect time to buy one of the many gadgets that have this functionality built in at a bargain price.
