Thursday’s best deals include Apple AirPods Pro, various HomeKit accessories, and a JVC CarPlay receiver. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

AirPods Pro are $235

Amazon offers the new Apple AirPods Pro for $235. Regularly $249, today’s deal is a match of the Amazon all-time low price and our previous mention. Note: While stock is currently low, just about every retailer online is showing extended shipping dates, so you might as well lock-in a discounted price here.

AirPods Pro delivers a refreshed take of the popular original version, now featuring active noise cancellation, tapered silicone tips, and a water-resistant design. Apple’s H1 chip ensures you have fast connectivity and up to 24-hours of battery life. Our Jeff Benjamin agreed in his recent hands-on review, noting that AirPods Pro “sound amazing, they’re uber-portable, come with great battery life, and feature incredible Active Noise Cancellation.”

Various HomeKit accessories on sale

Home Depot is offering up to 20% off smart home accessories, thermostats, and more. Our top pick is the Honeywell 7-day T5 Smart Programmable Thermostat at $87. That’s down from the usual up to $120 price tag and $4 less than the Amazon all-time low price.

Honeywell’s HomeKit-enabled smart thermostat delivers 7-day flexible scheduling and geofence features to help you save money and energy. This model sports a slim design and “easy to read” e-ink interface. More deals can be found here.

Bring CarPlay to your ride for $250

Best Buy’s official eBay storefront offers the JVC 6.2-inch CarPlay In-Dash Receiver for $250. Normally selling for $350, today’s offer saves you $100 and matches our previous mention for the all-time low from back in August.

Bringing a 6.2-inch touchscreen to your car, JVC’s receiver makes it easier to keep an eye on navigation directions and much more while commuting. CarPlay is at the center of the experience, which received some notable enhancements with iOS 13 last fall. I’ve been hitting the road with Siri as my copilot thanks to CarPlay for over a year, and can’t recommend it enough.

Anker’s HomeKit eufyCam 2C is $195

eufyHome via Amazon offers its eufyCam 2C 2-Camera Kit for $196. That’s down from the usual $240 price tag and the second-best offer we’ve tracked to date. Anker’s eufy sub-brand has thought of just about everything on its new 2C camera system, with stellar 180-day battery life from a single charge and up to 3-months of DVR storage via the integrated 16GB hard drive. Best of all? No monthly subscription fees to worry about. Smart detection zones round out the list of notable features, making it easy to only track certain areas around your property while ignoring unwanted notifications.

Anker PowerWave Qi Charger Bundle $20

Anker Direct via Amazon currently offers its PowerWave Wireless Chargers Bundle for $20. Usually selling for $25, today’s offer saves you 20%, beats the last price cut by $4, and marks a new Amazon low. Featuring both Anker’s PowerWave Pad and Stand, this bundle adds a 5 and 10W Qi charger to your arsenal. Getting both is a great way to provide ample wireless coverage throughout your home. The 10W PowerWave stand is an ideal desk companion, while the 5W pad will be perfect for overnight charging setups.
