More and more people are buying smart security cameras these days, and if you haven't yet joined the wave, now might be the right time to. For today only, Home Depot is offering discounts of over 20% on three unique Nest Cam bundles at different price points. There are some good deals to be had here. Read More
Nest's been in the news a lot lately, with word that it's being folded into Google's hardware division closely followed by the announcement that its last remaining founder is leaving the company. Nest's in that position because of its great connected home products, and thanks to a new app update they stand to get even better.
If you have a Nest Cam IQ, you might have encountered an issue whereby you have multiple familiar face entries that it just doesn't understand are the same person. Thankfully, Nest has solved that problem in the latest update by allowing you to merge those duplicate entries together. Read More
Most of Nest's smart home devices went on sale for Black Friday, but today Amazon is making several Nest products even cheaper. The Nest Cam is down to a mere $117.99, the Cam Outdoor drops to $124.99, and the 3rd gen Thermostat is $169. Read More
Nest's smart home products are overall very good, but the prices can sometimes be a little out of hand. Most Nest devices are a little cheaper today, though. You can shave $20-60 off the prices of Nest's cameras, thermostats, and other gadgets. These reduced prices are available at multiple retailers, so you can pick whichever suits you best. Read More
When Google recently decided to sell only company-made hardware in the Google Store, Nest products were kept in stock. That's not exactly a surprise, given that it's a subsidiary of Alphabet, just like Google. Now the lineup of Nest security cameras, thermostats, and other smart home security accessories sold in the Google Store is expanding. Read More
If you've had your eye on a Nest thermostat, but couldn't pull the trigger because of the price, then this Bloomberg report might be of interest to you. Supposedly, a cheaper, sub-$200 thermostat is in the works and it could launch next year. Bloomberg's source also indicates some other new products, like a home alarm system, a digital doorbell, and an update to the Nest Cam, are in development, too. Read More
Last month, Nest announced that it would be starting to sell its products in Austria, Germany, Italy, and Spain. But at the time, the retail outlets where these products could be bought ranged from Amazon to Media Markt, ePrice, El Corte Ingles, and a couple more. They were all third-party retailers and not official Nest or Google entities.
If you prefer to get your gear straight from the source, the official Google Store has started to sell some of Nest's line-up in these countries and is also expanding availability in Belgium for the Cam Outdoor. In short, here's the list of new countries where you can buy different Nest products:
- Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd generation: Italy, Spain (still not available in Austria or Germany)
- Nest Protect, 2nd generation: Austria, Germany (still not available in Italy or Spain)
- Nest Cam Indoor: Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain
- Nest Cam Outdoor: Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain (was already available in Germany).
Nest has announced today that it's expanding its products' availability to 4 new European countries: Germany, Spain, Italy, and Austria. If you live in one of these countries, you can pre-order the Nest Cam Indoor, Cam Outdoor, Learning Thermostat, and Protect today, but the availability is slated for February 15.
Previously, Nest's products were officially available in Europe in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, so with today's expansion, Nest says it'll be doubling its potential European reach. The products aren't sold on Nest's website, but available at different partner retailers depending on the country. Amazon is the most prominent, but there's Media Markt in Germany and Austria, ePrice in Italy, El Corte Ingles in Spain, and more. Read More
Connected gadgets like Google Home and Amazon's Echo are neat enough by themselves, but they really come into their own when paired with connected home tech. If you'd like to get started on a collection of said tech, Google subsidiary Nest is currently holding a Black Friday Sale with $50 off of each of its flagship products: the Nest Thermostat, the Nest Cam security camera, and the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide detector. All prices are good on the Nest online store. Read More
Saving and sharing video clips should be one of the rudimentary features of any connected camera system, so I'm surprised Nest didn't have that option until now. But now it does and it works in two ways. You can create an "instaclip" of any recorded event in your Nest timeline, but you can also tap and hold on the icon to make a custom clip with your chosen start and end times. After the clip is generated, you'll have the choice of either saving it locally to your device or sharing it with your contacts.
That's one of the two major features added with the latest Nest app update. Read More
