Worried about an opportunistic thief stealing your delivered packages while you are away at work? I've previously suggested building a moat and filling it with lava, but if that is too much work, setting up am armed sentry is another option. But again, there could be legal issues there. So another route is a Ring Video Doorbell, which is one of several hardware devices marked down at Amazon for Cyber Monday.
Beyond seeing who is at the door and communicating with them, the Echo Show 8 is a great way to stay in contact with distant family members and friends, particularly right now, as we find ourselves staying holed up inside. You can also use it as a kitchen aid—look up recipes on YouTube or wherever and follow along the step-by-step instructions—and to control your smart home using your voice. Good stuff.
Cyber Monday Deals On Amazon's Eero Mesh Router, Echo And Fire Devices, And More
One good thing about staying holed up in the house is it gives you an excuse to watch TV more than you usually might. And I've got to say, streaming services have picked up their game with some delightful shows and services. If you happen to be an HBO Max subscriber, The Flight Attendant starring Kaley Cuoco from Big Bang Theory fame is worth checking. On Netflix, The Queen's Gambit seems to be well liked (I've not watch it myself...yet).
If none of these float your dingy, check out these other Amazon devices that are currently on sale for Cyber Monday...
