We’re two weeks away from Prime Day 2021, but Amazon has already started discounting some of its devices. Its new Eero 6 WiFi router today dropped to a new all-time high of $83 for a single pack, $46 less than its normal price and $20 less than its previous high of $103. The 3-pack, which includes a router and two extenders, is also on sale for $181, which is $98 off its regular price and a new low as well. Since they’re part of an early Prime Day smart home device promotion, you’ll need to be a Prime member to get the sale prices.

Mesh systems like the Eero 6 use a main router and various extenders to provide coverage for your entire home. Amazon released the Eero 6 and Pro 6 late last year – they both support WiFi 6 and share a simple setup process. They also have a built-in Zigbee smart home hub, so you can start creating a network of smart lights, locks, appliances and more without buying separate devices to connect them all.

The main differences between the Eero 6 and the Pro 6 are strength and coverage area. The Eero 6 supports dual-band WiFi, and one router will cover up to 1,500 square feet (with the 3-pack you’ll get up to 5,000 square feet of coverage). The Eero Pro 6 supports tri-band WiFi and covers up to 2,000 square feet with a single router, making it better for larger homes.

Blink security cameras are also part of Amazon’s pre-Prime Day smart home sale. Prime members can pick up a Blink Outdoor Camera Kit for $60 right now, which is $40 off its regular price and a new low. These tiny, square cameras can be placed indoors or outdoors thanks to their weatherproof design, and they have no wires to deal with thanks to their replaceable batteries that last up to two years on a single charge.

Additionally, the Blink Mini, a smaller wired version designed for indoor use only, is down $20. And for those looking at the new Echo Show 5, Amazon is offering a bundle that includes two Blink Outdoor cameras with a new Echo Show 5 for $115. You’ll have to wait a few more days for this to ship though, as the new Echo Show 5 officially releases on June 9th.
