All Smart Home Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
There is the option for converters. Link
It's a shame it doesn't include the B22 fittings, I think the majority of the UK uses them. But I notice most of the deals apply to the E27s so before I get too invested I suppose I should just change the light fittings.
I don't think there was a post about this deal I don't remember it.
Did you post the deal?
Good to know. I think this is still very good price £15 each
Decided to bite, just annoying the samotech sm200 switch converter has doubled in price, can’t find another equivalent quality one. Time to check ikea and amazon for new roses too.... (y)
Smoking hot. Has anyone used any e27 to e14 convertors and could recommend a particular type/seller?
Ordered even though did not understand a word of Spanish just guessed the layout of the site is same as English. I am wondering though what if there is a problem with any of the item in the package?
Ikea sell them.
Any gu10 deals
Good price, highly recommended
Anymore codes out there please?
Free code HUEV9U5T7P8S3R4K2A6D9
Not a deal if it’s not available to everyone
Yes it is for Google Home Mini owners as the title says. They are not all sold out.
We've gone down the hive route so my codes available if anyone needs it... HUEX6S9U5E3F8M7C2K4N6
I didn't actually vote cold nor said this wasn't the best price. Just said the cold votes may have been because it's been much cheaper...
Yep. Rather amateurish so would not rely on these ‘Smart’ alarms. If you do then make sure you have manual override fitted.
Smart alarms... Not so smart. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/10/19/yale_security_fail/
App works ok for me, ok the pc setup was better but they shut that. I upgraded from the telephone version with the same grey yale detectors and it took 30 mins to setup learning detectors. Only downside for me is you can't turn the internal sound off if it goes in alarm like the other so the dog gets it as well.
I got this (brand new) for £50 at a car boot (lol) . Couldn't believe my luck.
🔥 Ordered thanks
need bulbs deal
Another good deal here amazon.co.uk/Amazon-Philips-Ambiance-Lighting-Starter/dp/B075RHJNLQ/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&ref_=ox_sc_act_image_3&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
Thanks op ordered
3 Arlo cameras are £285 on Amazon. 3 of these (on this deal) would be £210. If you want outdoor then maybe Arlo is better. If you want indoor then Y-Cam is a solid choice. Pls note I have not used Arlo to compare quality. I have used Y-Cam for several years and they have been superb. They are UK based and I’ve had no problems with their customer service.
That is hot UK deals fault not Y-cam. Y-cam website has the information on there which customer should read before submitting order. Your opinion Arlo is better which you're entitled too. Arlo also restricts storage limit and number of cameras.
Clearly states on the description above "One advantage with the Y-Cam is the cloud storage is 7 day rolling but free." This is incorrect They will charge you after 12 months No thanks Buy ARLO, better system and free storage
Clearly stated on the website that a subscription is required after 12 months.
If you read the reviews the negative comments are around the change in terms when they had to introduce the subscription plans. It is very clear on the website that the service is included for 12 months with a new camera before you need to purchase a subscription plan.
Just wrote out a whole reply and site didnt update it when saved erg U mean the one in my pic? I linked that in post but will post again below. These will colour chaise and make patterns. Either static or scrolling. Strobe do all sorts of patterns. But can only use with the controller and wont change what its doing unless u press a button Doubt ud be able to get a sensor or smart stuff to work well either. These are abit more for fun and not used oftern. But for £15 my daughter has fun with em. The ones i use everyday are the yeelights in this deal. They will only do one soild colour, but u can set up timers, routines, control with voice/phone etc. Can also create ur own colour patterns which change over time (whole strip will change different colours that u picked over a time frame u chose) u can also add a sensor to this quite easily. Google Xiaomi aqua. (Read up on this as ull need a gateway aswell but looks cheap n easy enouch) i love these yeelight strip n bulbs. Sry i got to go but cant get this link to copy in. Fourm keeps saying bad characters. It is linked in my previous post. Will try later again Not working :( but if search amazon for "addressable led strip" scroll down its the one that says. 5M 5050SMD RGB LED 6803IC Strip Light Chasing Magic Dream Color Addressable £16.56 Made a utube vid of mine at maxium cheese levels!
Thank you so much for your reply - even in this late night (y) . Any chance you can share the link for your led? Even it is only one color at a time, it can rotate the color automatically, can't it? Thank you.
These will only do one solid colour at a time. U need an addressable led strip for multi colour there usually more expensive but i got a cheap 5m one from amazon for about £15 (see pic) it came with a rf remote. Has different scrolling or static patterns, colour etc. I have a rf hub which can copy the frequency from the leds remote control which then alexa can control thru the hub. so i can turn the light on or off but i cant set a colour. I have to do that with the remote it comes with, but id say ur better getting a addressable strip with a smart addressable controller. Usualy sold seperstly but sometimes all packaged together. Sensors i dont no much about. I no philips hue ment to be good, imagine there plenty of cheaper options but never used sensors..if u get a led strip (or controller) that works with alexa/google/ifttt/ur phone..adding a sensor should be easy.... https://www.amazon.co.uk/5050SMD-6803IC-Strip-Chasing-Addressable/dp/B00GCXIAJW/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1540165521&sr=8-8π=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=addressable+led+strip&dpPl=1&dpID=51PR6BAg7dL&ref=plSrch ^^ Thats the one behind my sofa, dont think u could get a sensor to work tho, as the off command is the same as the on command id foresee many times its ment to go off and it goes on....bascially what evers controlling it wont no what state its already in... https://www.hackster.io/bportaluri/animated-smart-light-with-alexa-and-arduino-101b4b ^^depending on how far ud want to go... Its achievable to get addressable strip to work with a sensor and alexa etc but im not too sure if can buy something off the shelf or the best way to go around it. Looks to be alot of diy options...
in fact, i want one with multicolour AND motion sensor function, where can I find that?
can this do multicolour at the same time, or do they only run in turn? If not, could you suggestion on that can do multicolour simultaneously? Thanks
Nice deal, but given the last 2 post on this item, 1 was £159.98 for 2 that went super hot and the other was this item for £99 at Argos that went cold...so unfortunately this will prob go cold, but I wish you luck!
Watch, listen or play in new and exciting ways as your favorite video, audio and gaming effects fill the room. Simply link your Philips Hue smart lighting system to movies, music or games and transform your room into an entertainment arena. Step 1 Make sure your Hue lights are powered on and connected to the Bridge 2.0. Step 2 Set up a new entertainment area in the Philips Hue App. Step 3 Use the Philips Hue Sync App on your PC/Mac or connect with a supporting smart device to start your experience. So if you have all the above, you're good to go
to do hue entertainment what do you need? thats sounds good and quite technical is there a device you need to attach to tv?
I have Hue and INNR, probably once a month the INNR bulbs turn themselves on randomly in the middle of the night which wakes me up, the HUE bulbs have never done this It could just be 1 faulty bulb but it is annoying..
Chase, Goose, Wild
1GB RAM is just not suitable for much these days, even side loading the Play Store is not much benefit as everything is slow, slow, slow. If you dont mind watching the telly or something whilst the 10 seconds for a page to load....
I second that, slower than a slow thing that goes slow. I find mine pretty unusable and is stuck in the draw, could not even flog it for £20 some time ago. Pile of junk
I use it as a baby monitor too. Books are ok but too slow for web browsing. I also only paid £25 for mine in the last Amazon sale. So hot if you want one now, cold if you are willing to wait.
Takes 5 minutes to put the google play store on it then becomes a much better tablet. Hot.
Good if you want one now, however I'd advise to wait until black Friday when they'll drop to £30, the 8 will be £50 as well. But like i say still good discount in the meantime
Shame there's no B22 version on offer here. I know I can use adapters, but they just make the bulbs protrude too far.
You probably wouldn't get much anyway as it comes in one big box, so you'd be selling the items unboxed.
Google it ;)
Pease don't spoil for everyone else, bulk buying and selling. It's not this site about.
What's cost of each thing to sell on?
If you have 3 accounts you get £30 :)
Yes ,do it on 2 accounts you have £20
Thanks. I won't be buying the Echo but it's good to know about the £10 credit for topping up £30 in the shop. I didn't know about it. So you top up with £30 and end up with £40. (y) You could do that top up then wait for Black Friday and see what deals come up. <3
If you put £30 on your Amazon acount in store Amazon give you £10 for nothing So put 59 quid and get the echo
No daubt. I guess not everyone after 4k but just competitively priced, voice remote & kodi capable device...IMO.
Still good device, however in Deal Days were for £24.99. Buying it right now when 4K stick is on preorder is not worth its price. Better to wait for Black Friday and See priced for 4K, much more powerful version.
Correcting myself. Been even cheaper, like £24.95. Just reminding...
Haven't these been £29.99 in the past year? Amazon should discount it to £25 for BF as commenters noted.
New one that comes out on the 14th if you pre order 2. Amazon will knock £10 off making them £45 each
The 'community update' under the post has a link to the Argos page saying "Argos do not state special offers". I've just followed that Argos link but under the General Features heading it very clearly states: "Please note: This version comes with Special Offers, which means you'll receive Sponsored Screensavers and special offers directly on to your device. To unsubscribe from this service you will be charged a one-time £10 payment by Amazon." I don't seem to be able to reply to or comment directly on the community updates box but I believe it needs amending.
Is the Argos description wrong, it seems to state 2GB of RAM? I checked with an advisor that said this was correct vs my 1.5GB RAM from the Amazon page specification. Also, I can't find any clues to the Argos version including / excluding special offers (ads on lock screen) so they are going away to find out and will email me separately.
Question for those who can tell is the image still skewed on this "all new" one. I have an older Fire and the Aspect Ratio doesn't fit the screen resulting in the screen image being stretched along the length of the screen (and squished the width). It is very annoying though most people hardly notice.
There's no better tablet than this one for £60. People comparing a new £60 tablet to a new iPad are simply stupid. It's a great wee device to muck about with considering you are paying very little.
No they really don’t pahaha I expected a lot more than what it could do bearing in mind adverts show it playing games and doing all sorts. It lagged at every hurdle. It was sent back after a few weeks and a stock android tablet was bought until I picked up an iPad earlier this year. iPads are the best tablets hands down!
Typical Apple... :-)
Just looked. It’s not on Safari. ;( I’ll have to remember to use Chrome.
Perhaps you can get it for Safari too, I don't use Apple products but surely must be available.
Thanks for letting me know. I usually use safari. ;( I might use chrome now when using amazon.
Cool, I'm a male 8)
I have two dots and looking to get a 3rd. I agree on the sound quality comment... that said though, I have them plugged into other speakers that I have or use bluetooth to another speaker. That way sound quality from the echo dot on it's own isn't an issue.
I feel like this is only really discounted because they've just released a new version. I think personally I'd wait till they add the 3rd generation Dot to a sale. (Better speakers, newer tech etc) or just pay the £15 extra RRP. I've got a regular 2nd generation Echo and I cannot recommend it enough. Sound quality is fantastic for music coming from a small speaker. - that's also in the sale (£20 off - £69.99) - a better deal in my opinion. That said, the Dot can still do a lot, I just think if pairing with Amazon Music etc to get full potential you want something with some audio potential. :/
I could do with a new one but wonder if black friday will offer a similar price for the newer model
All echos dropping as the next gen of Alexa devices are released shortly.
Same price in curry’s and argos. And the echo is £69.99. I want one but don’t know whether to wait for Black Friday :/ Heat added!
Does not work, waste of time.
Got to the end, about to make payment, but no discount. Needs to be expired.
Useless features only because you don't have a use for them - other people might!
Both the echo Shows were £89 each on a deal if you bought two last year so I’m waiting for something better than that.
Also same prices on Very
