Get this Harmony Remote Deal
The Logitech Harmony Smart Remote is on sale for $44.99. This is the first time it has ever been available for this low of a price. This remote is one of the few universal remotes that are capable of controlling Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks. The included hub connects to the Fire device TV via Bluetooth and the remote communicates with the hub. Thanks to support for Alexa, you can also do many things, like turn your TV/equipment on or off and control volume, with your voice if you have an Echo device in the room.
Get this Sideclick Deal
The Sideclick Universal Remote Attachment is on sale for $14.99 at Best Buy. This price matches the lowest price that the Sideclick has ever been. The Sideclick clips on to the side of your Fire TV remote to give you quick access to a column of 8 programmable buttons. Even though the buttons have labels, they can actually be used to replicate any function of your existing remotes. The Sideclick is programmed by pointing your existing remote at it to teach it the correct commands, so you can use multiple remotes to program the various buttons. The Sideclick is compatible with ALL Fire TV remotes, new and old. This includes the new Alexa Voice Remote that comes with power and volume buttons. The only remotes that it does not work with are the Fire TV Edition television remotes from Element, Westinghouse, Toshiba, and Insignia. Also on sale for the same $14.99 price are the Apple TV Sideclick and the Roku Sideclick. Sideclick for Fire TV, and thoers, is also on sale at Amazon for $19.99 if the Best Buy deal ends or sells out.
Get this Echo Button Deal
The Amazon Echo Buttons have just gone on sale for $13.99 for Black Friday. This is the new lowest price that they have ever been. You will receive 2 buttons in this pack that can be paired with any Amazon Echo device. Echo Buttons have recently become a lot more useful because they can now be used to trigger any Alexa Routine. This means they can be used to control smart home devices, play music, set a smart thermostat, turn on or off smart lights, and much more. Of course, there also 200 Alexa Skills made specifically for Echo Buttons that mostly consist of games where the buttons are used to buzz in or interact with the game.
Get this Controller Deal
Amazon has just dropped their Fire TV Game Controller to $14.99 for Black Friday. This is the first time that this controller has ever been priced this low. Amazon has been clearing out stock of this controller because it is not compatible with the newer Fire TV models, but it is a fantastic controller, so if you’re still using a compatible Fire TV, this price is an absolute steal. The Fire TV Game Controller is only compatible with the Fire TV 1 box, Fire TV 2 box, Fire TV Stick 1, and Fire TV Stick 2 (current model). It is not compatible with any Fire TV Edition televisions, the Fire TV 3 (pendant), the Fire TV Cube, the Fire TV Stick 4K, or any non-Fire TV device, like the NVIDIA Shield TV.
Get Remote Only Deal
Get Remote & Controller Deal
Best Buy currently has the NVIDIA Shield TV w/ Remote & Controller for $159.99 for their Black Friday sale. This price is just $5 more than the lowest price that this bundle has ever been. If you don’t need the game controller, you can save $21 by getting the NVIDIA Shield TV w/ Remote Only for $139.00 from Amazon. That price matches the lowest price that the remote only bundle has ever been. The NVIDIA Shield is a very capable Android TV media player that has great gaming capabilities. You have to be logged into a Best Buy account to see the discounted Remote + Controller price.
Get this Sonos Beam Deal
The Sonos Beam Soundbar is on sale for $349.00 for Black Friday. This is the first time that this premium home theater speaker has ever been priced this low. The Sonos Beam comes with Alexa built-in, so you can use your voice, hands-free, to control the volume. The Sonos Beam was specifically made to work well with Fire TV devices, so you can use Alexa to launch apps and start playing content without touching a remote. The Sonos Beam is available in either Black or White. To go all out, you can add the wireless Sonos Sub, which is on sale at $100 off right now, matching its lowest price ever. Other active Sonos black Friday deals include the Sonos One smart speaker for $171.99, which is probably the best sounding speaker that comes with hands-free Alexa built-in.

Get this Ecobee Sensor Deal
Those of you who got in on the Ecobee Smart Thermostat deal that I posted about earlier, or if you already own an Ecobee Thermostat, you might be interested in this deal on additional remote sensors. Best Buy currently has the Ecobee Remote Sensor 2-Pack on sale for $39.50. That is half off of the regular price of $79 for this bundle. These sensors allow you to monitor the temperature in rooms where the Ecobee thermostat is not located so that you can have the thermostat tailer the temperature for a specific room. The Ecobee 4, which is on sale now for $199, already comes with one room sensor, but the Ecobee 3, which is on sale for $139, does not come with any, even though it is compatible with the same sensors.
Get this Keyboard Deal
The Logitech K400 Plus Keyboard is on sale for $17.98. This matches the lowest price it has ever been. I and many others consider this to be the best bang-for-your-buck keyboard for use with a media center. It’s comfortable to use, has a built-in trackpad, and can replicate all the functionality of the Fire TV Remote, apart from voice search. This is a wireless keyboard, but it does require you to use the included USB dongle. That means for devices like the Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick 2, Fire TV 3, and Fire TV Cube, you will need an OTG cable to use this keyboard. Logitech has several other active Black Friday sales that are worth perusing.
Get Roku Ultra Deal
Get Roku Stick Deal
Roku is having a couple good Black Friday deals right now. First is the Roku Ultra for $49.99. This is for the new 2018 package that now comes with premium JBL headphones that you can use for private listening through the headphone jack on the remote. This is the lowest price I’ve ever seen for any Roku Ultra, which is their flagship device. Also on sale is the Roku Streaming Stick for $29.00. This is also the lowest price it has ever been. You might want to seriously consider going with the Roku Ultra instead, because the Stick is not a 4K device and is overdue for an update.
