Amazon has the NVIDIA Shield TV Smart Home Edition on sale today for $179.98. This version of the Shield TV comes with the SmartThings Link. It transforms it into a Zigbee and Z-wave smart home hub to wirelessly connect to and control the many compatible smart devices so they can all work together. You would regularly pay $220 for the bundle when not on sale.
If you already use a SmartThings Hub or have Z-Wave smart home devices in your home, like smart light switches, then this deal should be of interest to you. If you are set up with an Amazon Echo, you can even use it to talk to the SmartThings Link in order to control smart devices with just your voice as well.
The NVIDIA Shield TV itself gives you a home theare experience. Apps like YouTube, Hulu, Sling, and more mean you can finally cut the cord and start streaming media through this instead. You can even get NVIDIA-powered cloud gaming if that's something you're interested in. As an added bonus, it has Google Chromecast 4K built-in as well.
