Cracking deal for one. 🔥
All Smart Home Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
Me me me me me me!
Oh so this may be a glitch but not an Amazing deal...
Yea ...it says at the top the glitch is giving a 33% discount instead of 3 for 2.... You've added 3 items that are the same price. 49.49 is 33% of 149.97 If it was 3 for 2 you'd get the cheapest free which is 49.99
If it was 3 for 2 they normally take the cheapest one off. Basically you are getting a free motion sensor as you are paying for one motion sensor and one dimmer (you have ordered 2 & 1)
Heat for the glitch, but just use alight switch (lol)
Perfect! Thanks! Hot Deal!
took a lot of faffing, but I've sorted it.
I dont know, if this is correct: Changed quantity to £1 on the last page. so I am paying £11.83?
Finally got it to work on my computer, not mobile phone. It was in the check out screen where I was finally able to delete the quantities.
Just ordered - signed up for Prime Trial to get the free postage and ordered for £16.66... Took a cpl of attempts - but I Got to the part where it says Quantity "0", removed the 2 firesticks then just continued to the very last stage where it says "confirm" and it automatically changes to price as described at the last stage
Dimmer switch and sensor OOS
Interesting, heads up with Currys since you mentioned them - It seems they are doing a buy 3 and get 33% discount rather than the cheapest free but you need to match the discount codes. Different priced products have a slightly different 3for2 discount code, e.g £35 sensors and £18 switches have one, and £50 or £80 products use different codes - The codes are on each page when you click the Offers & Deals. How is this useful? You can for example buy 2 sensors (£35 each) and 1 switch (£18) and pay £58 instead of £70. As you can see it discounted £29.04 instead of £17.99 as the cheapest item being free. Check against Argos as they are only giving the cheapest one for free.
Bought X6 GU10 bulbs and a motion sensor for £95 yesterday. The motion sensor was offered at £17 automatically. Went for free delivery and it all arrived this morning.
Great find. I. Must. Resist.
Nice one, ordered for £28 on cex :D
I always forget to do that (y)
A quick search brings up a 2 meter strip and bridge for £76 delivered from Amazon es at today's diabolical exchange rate. Probably no good for you but always worth checking across Amazon sites.
Get a hub from ebay or cex. Most are brand new that people have gotten free with bundles.
The best I found was the bundle deal on Amazon for £96.88, but that is a bundle of this deal and the current low priced strip :D
I chilled the other deal so gave heat on this one to balance it out. Still damn pricey for an ad supported alarm clock though (lol)
Better to wait acc to me
Agree with the above had an echo show and all it ever wanted to do was sell me stuff from amazon. Replaced it with a Google home hub and find it much more useful. The ability to voice control youtube for example helps no end when trying to entertain a toddler and do the washing up :D
Google home is lot better
By all accounts I've read, the Google Home Hub is far better unless you particularly want Prime Music.
Cheers for that. Might just find the extra for the show then. A deal on here already (y) 🏼
It's better than a dot as its got the visual clock, so better as a bedside alarm, but not hugely better than a dot for everything else. The show on the other hand is a beast and is the best sounding alexa device in my opinion (I have dots, echos, spot and show so can compare)
Yeah me too. Is it just a funky alarm clock or so much better than another dot?
Love mine at side of bed, and have the new show in the lounge. both show my ring security cameras and doorbell and works really well!
Good product, sits on my desk and flashes up events, reminders, etc. Much prefer Google if I'm honest but if you have a thing for Alexa, this is one to get.
Hard to find a good reliable IPTV I must have tried close to 100, people keep getting in touch with me to review them but when I try they're terrible lol. Cyberflix is my favorite for films and TV
Too true................. Iptv apk is so much more straight forward and quicker and also hardly uses any storage space.
Good shout, ty
Trust me it is a thing of the past! I've helped hundreds of thousands of people install it and now the majority of them only want apps dedicated to films and tv that work straight away.
i agree the 4k stick is much better, hence why amazon are selling of this stick on the cheap to get rid of stock
By the time the notification that someone has rung the doorbell appears on my phone or IPad most people are already on their way again, especially irritating when waiting for a delivery, those guys won’t wait at all. I have very fast internet so that’s not the problem. The battery also runs out very fast, I turned off most of the features to conserve battery life, but it rarely lasts more than two or three weeks before I have to dismount it and recharge, even charging is very slow, it takes much longer than most mobiles to charge, even though the battery is essentially a mobile battery. Another thing is having to pay a subscription to see any recordings, if you miss a ring you can’t go back and see who was at the door, unless you pay the subscription. I know some people are happy with their Ring doorbells, but it seems to me to that there is a lot of undeserved hype about a product that wasn’t quite finished. Of course the newer models may work better.
It’ll bring the feed up when you ask it to show your camera, and in the future should play a notification for motion and doorbell presses.
I have ring v 1 and it’s great. Does anyone know if this is compatible with ring v 1?
Can you elaborate on the Ring, been researching them recently so wondering what your thoughts are. :)
These are great for talking to family members abroad, got one for my 84 year old Mother last Xmas, I live in Denmark so we save a lot of money, it's also nice when family members drop by, my kids get to see their family in England a lot more now. It took a few attempts for my mother to learn how to use it. but considering she's never used a computer or a smart phone she picked it up quite quickly, the biggest problem was teaching her to stop saying 'please' and 'thank you' to it in a Donegal accent. It now works with my Ring doorbell too, it's just a shame that the Rng doorbell is one of the most overrated bits of tech I've ever bought.
This it is then. ;-)
This or google home hub
Amazon too. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/new-amazon-echo-show-50-off-and-a-free-philips-hue-smart-bulb-argos-amazon-for-16999-3135441?pprmrkntfctnsrd=150895198&UATypeId=7
Best price so far, but this really needs to come nearer to the google home price which was £99 recently.
Lol full use of the screen then (y)
I noticed something similar - I ordered 2 sensors and a switch, expecting to get the cheap switch for free but it seems they added all up and divide by 3, or close to it. £29.04 discount instead of the expected £17.99. I ain't complaining! Same order on Argos came to £69.98, best not tell them huh.
It would seems that the 3 for 2 offer is not quite what it seems for the online store..... I added 3 Philips Hue Dimmers and after applying the promotion code it returned a price of £36.16.... 16 pence more than Argos!. I have report this to Currys and hopefully they should get this fixed.
Get one of the stand-alone wifi bulbs with a remote control, so no phones or apps are required.
It's £22 for a coloured Ikea Tradfri bulb, which can connect to Philips Hue.

May be worth asking here. https://www.reddit.com/r/tradfri/
Cold - this is not a deal
Dunno but worth a try. I'm assuming the echo has a buffer before it cuts out completely. Do I need it in my car? No. Will it be any better than playing Spotify off my phone? No. Do I wanna do it just because I can? Yes! :D
People just posting stuff because it's new! It's not a good deal for reasons posted above
This what Google need to do with the Chromecast audio. Oh they also need a new mini with aux out.
Isn’t the Alexa 100% dependable on internet ?? Would putting in your car be any good, just thinking my drives internet is patchy at best.
Ooh nice find OP! My internets stopped working on my Smart TV and I can’t watch amazon instant video on it without it working anymore.
https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/hukd-satellite-information-iptv-thread-1509614?page=297#thread-comments And r/Plexshares and r/embyshares
Sorry I thought I saw somebody mention a code near the top of this thread?
Most TV USB ports are just 0.5 amp output, which is usually enough to get it up and running but it will be slow I got one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-feet-Cable-External-Drive-Black/dp/B0047AALW6/ref=sr_1_45?ie=UTF8&qid=1544621404&sr=8-45&keywords=y+cable+micro-b which provides 2 TV USB's worth of power (1 amp) which is what the fire stick needs to run properly. You can get them on Ebay for like £3.
Typical HUKD. Isn't it.
No idea. Great price for a good camera. I bought one for the same price during the Black Friday sales.
Why is this voted cold? Tracking shows it’s the lowest price it’s been yet :/ https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/TP-LINK-KC120-1080p-Security-Camera/product/B07GF1F7T5
Yes, £119 via your link n3jly. Still not the £99 BF price though, or the £119 for this and home mini that was around recently. Hot if you need one now but will be £99 again at some point. Almost guaranteed. if you can wait.
There are dozens and dozens of previous posts asking and answering this exact question.It depends on what you want to do with it and what other stuff you already have. Read those other posts. There is no single answer to which is better.
Totally agree, same with the mobile apps. Whereas TP-Link and Philips Hue apps both show the obvious on/off highlighted.
in what way is this different to running google home app and activating assistant on any android tablet?
This will be why the link isn’t working... https://m.shop.bt.com/christmas-store/buying-guide/?ReferrerID=PK00&utm_source=retention+email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=christmas+guide&utm_content=PK00
Reading emails is coming apparent but only in the US initially and only on some common email services; https://venturebeat.com/2018/12/10/alexa-can-now-check-email-inboxes-and-trigger-location-based-routines/ I'm sure there is a business in supplying and supporting tech to end users however it could become a complete nightmare depending on how tech savvy the users are and reliable the tech is. I'm sure the voices on Alexa et al will evolve and be able to adopt a cultural aspect at some point but this is just probably driven by money and whether there are bigger money generating fish to fry before then. Also "putting on accents" is racist these days according to the snowflakes as opposed to just funny, depending on what is being said of course. I'd say meetings and conference calls at work would be much more fun if we all had to put on accents. And AI well it depends on your definition of AI and Google already have some "intelligence" in that it worked out where my home was, where my work was and the fact its quite handy to know what the traffic is like in the morning. Everything will hopefully get better.
interesting comment, this is where A.I. comes into play, there needs to be more intelligence and integration of electronic devices to better respond to your needs. For example, if Alexa and/or the light switch had better integration with your mobile phone they could figure out that when your phone is ringing in the muddle of the night and you're fumbling around in the dark for your phone, then turn on those lights. Burt that's just one example, like you said the devil's in the detail but that's where A.I. and integration should come in. Alexa is crippled by too many security measures, she can't even read your emails fgs! and that's what's holding Alexa back from moving forward. We want what devices but we want our privacy, we want it all but you can't have it all, it's one or the other. I've been thinking about this and want to start a business to supply people with equipment that is much more finely tuned to our needs, but at the expense of privacy, our customers would have to sign away some of their privacy but the potential benefits could be enormous. Why does Alexa have to be politically correct, why can't she adjust to the needs of the person she's serving? Why can't there be a Blackexa who speaks street talk? why can't three be a rude Alexa who doesn't conform to pc? in her current form she is boring. I know this is a bit o.t. but I got carried away with your interesting comment, forgive me!! :D
With 3rd party apps, such as Hue Essentials, you can program it to do as many bulbs as you want. For example, in my living room the 1st press turns on my floor lamp and hue strip, 2nd press turns on main ceiling light to 50%, 3rd press to 100%
Check out the Xiaomi ceiling lights, they're definitely the best for the price.
Great post with some good points, just try to insert a few line breaks to make it easier on the eye lol :o Just to clarify a mistake you've made, you don't have to have an internet or WiFi connection for the basic setting and pairing of the switch to the Hue bulbs If you buy the switch and bulb that are packaged together they will be automatically paired with each other and so can be used straight out the box, screw the bulb in, take the plastic off the battery in the switch and you're good to go. If bought separately or you want to add another bulb (max 10) you just have to screw the new bulb in, switch on and then hold the remote close to the bulb and press and hold the on button till you get a flashing light which confirms the pairing and you're good to go. I know this as I needed to hang a door the opposite way and now the switch is behind the door, making it a pain in the arse when entering the room. Instead of paying a fortune for an electrician to rewire the switch I went with this basic solution and only cost £25 for the bulb and remote. You do only get basic control without the app or hub but it's fine for this application.
Just got this same deal at Curry's last night, bargain - esp if you missed out on the mini for £29
Why are you looking to be convinced that you need something else? If you don't feel you need it, just leave it alone. The fewer things you need the better, surely.
That bug where you can get them for £22.22 from Amazon may still be working. I got mine.
Nope my comment was regards to buying from Tesco to receive free click and collect.. when collecting you can easily return the second one without question I’ve done it many times only to bump up my basket to receive free click on collect..
Voted hot. It my burning question is what is wrong with flying Cathay? Genuine question! (angel)
And risk being banned for life by amazon http://time.com/money/5288702/amazon-return-policy-ban/
THese are very well known, and very reliable. People will happily pay a bit extra for a known known.
According to this it does Google Assistant at least, you need the Tradfri gateway (which i'll be getting anyway to update my lights). https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/11/30/ikeas-cheap-tradfri-smart-outlets-are-now-available-in-a-few-countries/
If you learn the difference between the words woman and women, you may find you don't need an 'interface' with them.
Interesting. Works with Google home?
If you missed this then keep an eye out as they’ve frequently been going in and out of stock for the past few days
