One of the most obvious deterrents to be-burglars is at an occupied house. Throw some smart bulbs into your kitchen, living room or front porch fixtures, schedule them to flip on at night, and you instantly make your house much less appealing to the more-skittish thief.

One of the most wallet-friendly options: the Wyze bulb. You can get one for $ 8 or four for $ 30 – not too much more than a regular LED bulb. These gadgets connect directly to your Wi-Fi, and are perfect to schedule and forget about.

While we're talking deterrence, it might be worth considering dummy cameras. Especially for larger properties, where you want to break the bank, fake security cameras can make your house look like a locked-down compound.

Of course, deterrence only wants you so far. If a burglar breaks into your house, you'll still want some sort of device to alert you to the breach.

As CNET's Megan Wollerton has pointed out, "The era of the $ 200 security camera is over." Today, you can find out more about the better models for $ 26. Wyze Cam for the wallet-friendliest smart cam, and offers free person-alerts, 14 days of cloud storage and SD card slot if you want continuous recording. That's pretty incredible for the price.

If you're less concerned about recording specific rooms, and more interested in monitoring entryways to your home, the security sensor kit could be a better fit for you. Two door / window sensors and one motion sensor.

Again, for the price, this is a solid deal. For a small apartment, or if you're just covering your front and back doors, this kit could keep you solidly covered for super cheap.

Alexa Guard can help keep an ear (or some far-field microphones) on your house when you're away. At Echo Dot, which you can find on $ 25 fairly often, Alexa Guard is in your house. But if you already have Echo, it's totally free.

Just say, "Alexa, I'm leaving" to switch on the feature. Then your echo wants to hear a message, or hear the sound of humans moving around your house – and you'll receive a mobile alert if it's anything.
