It’s a good time for a home security update, as a bunch of Nest products are on sale on Amazon and Adorama for the lowest prices we’ve seen. Both the easy-to-install Nest Doorbell (battery) and the Nest Cam Outdoor have particularly steep $50 discounts, letting you grab them for just $130 each.

The Nest doorbell (battery) is a popular item because it’s much easier to install than any wired doorbell. As with the cameras, it will send you alerts when you have a visitor and you can chat with them via your phone and the built-in speaker and microphone. Google’s “smart alerts” can tell the difference between a visitor, a delivered package, an animal sighting and more, so you can see if a situation needs your immediate attention. If the regular price of $180 gave you pause, it’s now on sale for $130, the lowest price we’ve seen yet.
The Nest Cam Indoor and Outdoor record 1080p video and send alerts to your phone when they detect motion. They also have built-in microphones and speakers so you can hear what’s going on and talk to anyone on the other end of the camera. However, the Nest Cam indoor is designed to blend into your home, with a range of colors, built-in stand, wall mount and hinge. It’s currently on sale for $80 or $20 off the regular price.
Meanwhile, you can pick up the Nest Cam Outdoor for just $129, which is $51 off the regular price of $180. This model obviously has a weatherproof design so you can install it outside your home, as well as extended night vision to better spot outside intruders. It also contains an internal battery that allows you to set it up without the need for an AC outlet, providing up to seven months of battery life before recharging depending on usage.
To get the most out of the cameras and doorbell, you need to be able to see and hear anyone on the other end. A great way to do this is with Nest Hub smart displays, which can also control your smart home devices, provide entertainment and more. Luckily, the 2nd-gen Nest Hub is on sale for $60 at Adorama, saving $40. Finally, you can pick up the larger Nest Hub Max with a 10-inch touchscreen and built-in Google Assistant for $179 for a saving of $50, or 22% off.
