Home security is continuing to become more and more popular, and luckily it's also becoming more accessible. From smart locks (opens in new tab) to security cameras (opens in new tab) and even basic spotlights (opens in new tab), there are a few things you can do yourself to add a layer of security to your home without going broke. Amazon is kicking off its "12 Days of Deals" promotion with home improvement gear, which includes most of what you'll need to get started with a smarter, more secure, home.

This is just some of the great gear that Amazon has discounted today, so be sure to check it all out. Many of these prices are all-time lows, or pretty close to it, so if you value your security and enjoy a good deal, today's the day to combine them both.
