Google is now selling Nest products at Amazon, with a big discount Nest doorbell (battery), Nest Security Cam (wired) and Nest Cam outdoor or indoor (battery). However, the standout deal is Nest . WiFi Router (2nd Generation), available in a pack of 3 for just $199 (57% off) – the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
The 3-pack setup will allow you to cover up to 6,600 square feet, enough for large homes. We gave the Google Nest WiFi router an 84 in review for simple installation and ease of use. Setup is easy to do, and its wireless radios are twice as powerful as those inside of old Google WiFi routers. We also commend both the router and the access points for having an unobtrusive design that will suit most homes.
The hotspots also act as speakers with the built-in Google Assistant that you can use for voice commands. They can’t replace a proper speaker at all, but the sound quality is the same as a standalone Google Home Mini. The biggest drawback is the lack of support for WiFi 6, but otherwise here are some of the best mesh routers out there.
Meanwhile, the Nest-shaped Doorbell (battery) is on sale for $120, or $60 off the regular price. The battery makes installation easy and can be used with any door, and offers features like visitor alerts, plus built-in speakers and microphones.
And finally, both the wired and battery Nest Security Camera are marked down as well. The wired model (2nd generation) is Sold for $79or 21% off the regular $99 price, while the Nest Cam Outdoor or Indoor (2nd generation) has a battery 33% off $120. Both shoot at 1080p and they will send alerts to your phone when motion is detected in their web stream. They also have built-in speakers and microphones, so you can hear what’s going on and talk to people on the other end of the camera.
