We combed through many different websites, searching through products to bring you the best deals. We checked prices of products across other websites to ensure these are really good deals.
Additionally, we used price trackers to keep track of price movement for these products, removing any items that have been purposely price gouged. Any item, with few exceptions like Apple, needs to be at least 15% off in order to be considered a good deal. We aimed for at least 25% off.
Finally, we chose products that we consider worth your dollar, combing through reviews and ratings. If we reviewed a product on our best picks, we made sure to include a link to the review so you can get an in-depth look at the product.
Many retailers offer the largest discounts during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and this year’s been no different. However, many of the Black Friday deals that went live just after Thanksgiving are still available today and featured on this page, just before Christmas.
Some companies do offer big discounts in January, ahead of new stock coming after CES and to push older stock that didn’t sell during Christmas sales. These discounts, however, aren’t always as big as Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, and you run the risk of not finding the one you want in stock or on sale.
We’ll watch the best security camera deals over the next few months so you can be certain that we’ll offer you the best and most current information.
Security cameras can certainly deter thieves if they’re placed where potential intruders know they’re being watched and where you can have a clear visual of anyone trying to come inside.
Many outdoor cameras have a built-in spotlight and sirens that can be automatically turned on when movement is detected, letting unwanted guests know that their presence is unwelcome.
Alternatively, when you get a notification on your phone for motion detection and you see it’s a potential prowler, you can also decide to use two-way talk to warn them away, or manually trigger a siren, along with contacting emergency services.
Cyber Monday always falls the following Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday. This year, Cyber Monday was on Nov. 28.
Black Friday is always the Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, it was on Friday, Nov. 25.
