Today’s top deals include a new Twelve South accessory sale, a fresh batch of Anker price drops, and HomePod from $188. You’ll find all that and more down below in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Twelve South deals abound at Amazon

Amazon is running a new Twelve South sale today with a number of discounts on popular Mac, iPad, and iPhone accessories. Free shipping is available on orders over $25 or with a Prime membership. Headlining is the Twelve South Curve Stand in black for $41.22. Regularly $60, today’s deal is the first discount we’ve seen in months at Amazon. The new white special edition color is also on sale at $49.30 from the usual $60 price tag. Twelve South’s Curve delivers an elevated home for your MacBook, offering better ergonomics and airflow. In fact, it keeps “70% of the base exposed” for cooling. Fits devices from 11- to 17-inches. Check out the entire sale here.

Anker’s HomeKit cameras, more on sale

Anker is starting the week with a fresh batch of deals at Amazon highlighted by its eufy Pan & Tilt HomeKit Camera for $40. The latest cameras from eufy are headlined by HomeKit support with its Pan & Tilt model bringing additional functionality to the table. As its name suggests, when movement is detected, it will follow the person, animal, etc over its 360-degree field of view. Users will receive alerts and footage is kept on local storage. It’s an affordable way to bring HomeKit video to your space. Best of all? No hub required.

HomePod packs AirPlay 2 and Siri control

Best Buy offers Apple’s HomePod for $200. Those willing to go with an open-box excellent model can drop the price to $188. Just scroll down to the Buying Options section of the listing to see the open-box offers. Regularly $299, we’ve seen it fall to $200 a few times in the last months, which is right at the best we’ve seen in 2020.

Apple HomePod delivers Siri and access to Apple Music and more in one sleek package. Add in AirPlay 2 and you can easily beam content from a variety of sources on your iOS device.

August’s new Wi-Fi HomeKit Smart Lock at $230

Amazon is currently offering the August 4th-Generation Wi-Fi Smart Lock for $230. Usually fetching $250, today’s offer marks one of the very first discounts we’ve seen on the recent release and brings the price down to a new all-time low. August’s latest smart lock improves on the brand’s previous-generation models with a design that’s 45% smaller. You’ll also now find built-in Wi-Fi, allowing you to pair to Alexa, Assistant, and even Siri setups without needing an additional hub. Other notable features here include the ability to share virtual keys with family members, as well as auto-unlock functionality that prepares the door as you approach. We found it to be the “gold standard of smart home products” in our hands-on review.

Jabra Elite 85h ANC Headphones for $200

Amazon offers the Jabra Elite 85h Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones for $200 in a variety of styles. Having originally retailed for $300, they’ve more recently been fetching $250 with today’s offer amount to 20% in savings, matching our previous mention, and coming within $1 of the all-time low. Active noise cancellation is the standout feature here, which pairs with six microphones to analyze your environment and automatically apply a personalized audio filter to more effectively block out unwanted sound. Jabra then backs its Elite 85H headphones with up to 36-hours of battery life per charge, as well as water-resistance and more.
