Amazon Prime Day 2021: best smart home deals

Your home may be lovely, but it ain't the smartest. Not yet anyway...

Once you start putting Smart Home tech in your house, it can be a little difficult to wean yourself off it. You'll start with a thermostat, and before you know it you've replaced every light in your home with a smart bulb. Thankfully, there are plenty of smart home deals as part of Amazon's Prime Day 2021, and we've picked out all the best ones to feed your addiction.

iRobot Roomba i7+

A decent robot vacuum cleaner can be crazy expensive and while the iRobot Roomba i7+ isn't exactly cheap, knocking £200 off on Amazon Prime Day certainly helps.

For up to 60 days, the i7+ automatically empties its bin into the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal with AllergenLock bags that use four layers of allergen blocking material to trap 99% of pollen and mould. Great news if you suffer from hay fever.

With advanced navigation, the i7+ can clean messes where you want, when you want. And equally important, it can stay out of where you don't want it to go. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands are good here too. Dog not included. Repeat, the dog is not part of the deal.

Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC Stainless Steel Bread Maker

Make hay while the sun shines, bake bread when it's lashing it down – Amazon Prime Day to the rescue. Panasonic's SD-ZB2502BXC Stainless Steel Bread Maker uses its loaf so you don't have to when it comes to the crunch, of your crust.

The machine has 27 bake and dough modes, a digital timer, a raisin/nut dispenser for mixing additional ingredients at just the right time for even distribution and a yeast dispenser – unique to Panasonic – dropping yeast automatically so your bread rises as it should for a fluffy or dense loaf.

Shark Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner

We recently reviewed the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute, an all-conquering vacuum cleaner with a laser head. Dyson's rival, Shark, doesn't currently have anything to match it, which is a shame because then you'd have a Shark with frickin' laser beams attached to its head, but that doesn't stop the Shark Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner being a very good – and much more affordable deal – if you're looking to clean up on Amazon Prime Day. 

The smart part here is that you can use it like a standard upright, or detach it and use it as a handheld to get to hard to reach places.
