Cyber Monday was officially named back in 2004, as online businesses realized everyone was going back to work after a 4 day weekend, with their high speed internet connections, and buying what they wanted for the Christmas shopping season. More and more businesses, especially smaller ones and start ups in the tech world, began offering their biggest deals of the year on Cyber Monday.

Perfect Time For Technology Purchases

Security systems and smart home devices have historically received the best sales and deals of the year on Cyber Monday. Black Friday may traditionally have offered the best deals in brick and mortar stores, but Cyber Monday has increasingly been the time to buy items from online vendors. Marketers know that there is a strong possibility that families are spending time together over the 4 day holiday weekend, and that honestly, people are still recovering from the festivities on the first Monday back at work. They know, Cyber Monday is the best time to hit customers with their best deals of the year to really get a strong start to the Christmas shopping season.

What To Expect

As with Black Friday, there will be some incredible deals and sales but for limited quantities of items. In the realm of home security systems, you’ll want to know ahead of time what exactly you want, what system meets your needs best, and what you’re willing to compromise on in the event your 2nd or 3rd choice is offering far better savings than your 1st choice. Home security and smart home devices are a couple of the biggest selling items this year, as more and more people realize the peace of mind and convenience they bring into their lives. Needless to say, these devices will sell like hotcakes this year during their biggest sales. Extended warranties and free shipping are often additional deals to be had during Cyber Monday.

When To Buy

Cyber Monday can start at various times, as it’s all online and not restricted to the normal business hours of brick and mortar stores. We’ll round up the best deals ahead of time to post below, but generally you’ll want to be ready at midnight the night before. Some online shops will not start the deals until a given time, while others will have an hourly deal for every hour of the day. Again, these deals are usually leaked ahead of time and we will post them all here as well.
