Nest Secure starter kit drops to $280 ($120 off), and Nest Detect sensors are $39 ($10 off)

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

Nest launched its home security bundle at $500 a while back, which was pretty tough to justify. It has since come down $100, and today it's on sale for $100-120 less than that. Plus, you can get those spendy all-in-one Nest Detect sensors for an all-time low price of $39.

The Nest Secure consists of the Guard keypad/hub, Nest Tag NFC fobs, and the Nest Detect sensors. The starter kit includes a Guard and two each of the Tags and Detects.

Nest, the Google-owned smart home company, is known for making excellent (albeit expensive) products that integrate well in Google Home ecosystems. Target now has the Nest Indoor Cam 3-Pack on sale for $279 — 30% off its MSRP and the lowest price we've ever seen.

Report: Google’s 2019 hardware plans include Pixel ‘Lite,’ Home refresh, new Nest cameras, and wearables

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

Google's first-party hardware options may be set to ramp up this year according to a recent report. Based on the details, we might see new product lines as well as refreshes of existing ones. In addition to the already knownupcomingcheaper Pixel "Lite," Nikkei is reporting that Google plans to release its own wearables (plural), a Google Home refresh, and security cameras this year.

The full report is pretty long and worth a read if you're big into Google's first party hardware efforts, but the relevant bits discussing previously unknown hardware are just below:

"One person with direct knowledge of the matter told Nikkei that Google plans to release a new security camera later this year after it integrated the team from Nest Labs... The company will also roll out an updated version of its signature smart speaker Google Home this year, as well as a new smartwatch to compete with the Apple Watch, the person familiar with the plan said."

New smart speakers and security cameras aren't especially surprising.

[Update: Setup video, opt-in confirmed] Your Nest Secure becomes an Assistant-integrated smart speaker starting today

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

Last spring, the Nest Secure finally picked up Assistant-based controls, letting you do things like arm/disarm, and check the status of your home security setup from your phone or Google Home. It would appear that was merely the first step in deeper Assistant integration following the merger of Nest with Google's hardware team.

Now, the retailer has brought back its offer - and while it's just 15 percent off this time around, it's still well worth checking out.

Get a Google Home Hub for $20 with the purchase of select Nest devices at Best Buy, B&H, and more

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

The holiday sales season isn't over yet - Boxing Day deals are the last big hurrah before a promo dry spell. Among the most intriguing deals of the day (for Americans) is an offer that reduces Google's regularly $150 Home Hub to $20 if bought in tandem with select Nest devices at retailers including B&H, Best Buy, and Walmart. There's no doubt that Google will continue to push its smart devices in the new year with lots more deals to come, but at an $80 discount, this current promotion is certainly compelling. 

The B&H discount kicks in at checkout. 

All three retailers mentioned above are offering the Home Hub at a base discount of $100 to begin with (and B&H is also separately discounting many of the Nest products), but pairing it with any of the below Nest products will result in an additional $80 discount at B&H and Best Buy.
