We've rounded up the best deals to make your home a little smarter this sales season. And there are some brilliant discounts ahead.

We know that RRPs aren't always meaningful - which means that discounts aren't always as good as they seem. So we're measuring the following deals against what the products usually sell for, rather than their highest-ever price.

To see the best of all the deals we've found, have a look at our round-up of the best Black Friday tech deals across all tech categories: phones, laptops, smartwatches, PCs, Macs and more. But read on for home tech discounts.

4. Ring Video Doorbell Wired

From: Amazon

Was: £49

Now: £34  (£15 off)

This deal puts smart doorbell pricing into perspective. For less than £35, you'll get a compact doorbell that's easy to install on even a narrower frame. It has plenty of features and a great companion app. We gave the Ring Doorbell Wired 4.5 out of 5 stars in our review.

5. Arlo Pro3 two-camera kit

From: Amazon

Was: £284.99

Now: £224.99  (£60 off)

Even better than Arlo's own on-site deals is this Amazon discount. Ignore the inflated RRP on page, this is still one of the best prices we've ever seen for this two camera set.

6. De'Longhi Autentica ETAM bean-to-cup machine

From: Currys PC World

Was: £449

Now: £369  (£80 off)

9. Audible 3 months' membership

From: Audible

Was: £23.97

Now: 99p  (£22.98 off)

12. Philips OneBlade

From: Philips

Was: £39.99

Now: £19.99  (£20 off)

This is one of the best and most versatile shavers around (we gave it 5 stars). It'll usually cost you £29.99/ £39.99, depending on where you buy it, so this is an excellent deal.

13. Lenovo smart clock

From: AO.com

Was: RRP £40

Now: £19  (£21 off)

Now: £169  (£90 off)

Some other retailers have discounted the Explore Air 2 but nothing nearly as good as this deal. The next best price we can find is £214.99 from Amazon.

16. Google Home Hands-Free Smart Speaker

From: eBay

Was: £39.95
