Looking for a way to make your home a whole lot smarter? Nest’s products are a great way to do so. Nest may be best known for its Learning Thermostat, but it also makes some great smart security products, and for a limited time, a number of those smart security cameras are getting some pretty major discounts at Best Buy and Walmart.

First up is the Nest Cam IQ, which is arguably the smartest security camera out there. The camera boasts a high-resolution video with features like face recognition. It can alert you to any movement in your home — even at night — and it has Google Assistant built right into it. That essentially means that you can talk to Assistant through the camera itself. You can get the single camera for $50 off from Best Buy or Walmart.

Perhaps you don’t need a security camera that’s as smart as the Cam IQ, in which case, you could simply go for the Nest Cam Indoor. This camera may not have Google Assistant built into it, but it still offers a decent resolution and a slightly more subtle design. The standard Nest Cam is now $30 off at Best Buy and Walmart.

You might want good security outside your home, too, in which case, it’s worth considering the Nest Hello smart doorbell. The camera has a high resolution and when someone presses the button you’ll get a notification straight on your phone, after which you can talk to whoever is at the door quickly and easily. You can get the Nest Hello smart doorbell at Best Buy and Walmart for $30 off.

We don’t know how long these deals will last, so if you’re interested, you may want to pick one of the security cameras up now.
