Verge readers get up to $80 off Google Nest smart devices
Written by admin_3fxxacau

There have been plenty of bargains this week despite the passage of Memorial Day, some of which are still available to Walmart Plus subscribers throughout the weekend. But if you’re someone who cares more about smart home tech than Walmart’s current strengths, we’ve got an exclusive treat just for you.

Wellbots offers Edge readers up to $80 off select Google Nest devices through Sunday, June 19. This includes two great options for video doorbells if you prefer to use Google Assistant in your smart home setup. The long date Google Nest Hello – now known as Nest doorbell (wired) – is $80 off when you use promo code YARD80 at the register, which brings the excellent wired doorbell down to $149. While this model has been around since 2018 and offers a 1600 x 1200 resolution sensor with HDR, it’s also one of the few to allow 24/7 continuous recording via an additional subscription tier. There’s simply no other doorbell that offers so much recording flexibility, plus Google Home syncing and hassle-free wired operation. Read our video doorbell buying guide.

The Nest Doorbell (wired) is Google’s video doorbell for the Nest smart home system. It lets you see who’s at the door on your phone or Google Assistant smart display, even when you’re away from home. Even better, Wellbots offers Edge readers an exclusive $80 discount through June 19 when they use promo code YARD80 at the register.

If you prefer the Google Home or Google Assistant app, another option on sale today is the battery-powered Google Nest doorbell. This model is on sale at Wellbots for $129.99 ($50 off) when you use promo code YARD50 at the register. You may notice that it did not make it into our overall analysis Video Doorbell Buying Guidebut it’s still a viable option if you need a battery-powered doorbell and can’t foresee yourself opting for an Amazon Alexa-infused device like the Ring 4 Video Doorbell. It offers a sleek design that comes in multiple colors, as well as smart features like package detection. Just keep in mind that if you intend to run it on battery power instead of hard-wired, you will need to remove the entire doorbell from the wall and recharge it every two months. Read our review.


Google Nest Doorbell (battery operated)

The latest generation battery-powered video doorbell from Nest has a tall form factor that comes in several colors: white, ivy, ash and linen. The wireless device records 960 x 1280 resolution at up to 30 frames per second with HDR and night vision, and it can detect people, animals, vehicles and packages. Wellbots is currently offering an exclusive $50 discount at Edge readers when they use a promotional code YARD50 at the register.

If you seek to see beyond your door, Google’s projector-equipped Nest Cam is down to just $199.99 ($80 off) at Wellbots when you use a promotional code YARD80. It is our first choice for the best projector to use with google assistant, which offers decent video quality and bright lighting that will help illuminate your yard or driveway when selected subjects are detected (people, animals, vehicles, and packages). These features are added for free, however, if you want 24/7 video recording, it will cost you a subscription fee. An added perk you unlock with the $6 per month subscription is the Familiar Faces feature, which will notify you if someone you know is approaching your home – a tool that (hopefully) will leave you a bit less worried about your regular mail carrier. .

Google Nest Cam with Projector

The first lighting product from Google Nest, this floodlight camera features bright lights and a host of controls through the Google Home app. The camera – a battery-powered Google Nest Cam – attaches magnetically and via a power cable.

Now, for a deal that’s less about monitoring what’s happening outside your home and more about something that should be happening inside your home: lively multiplayer games!

The recently launched Nintendo Switch Sports is currently on sale with its included leg strap on Amazon for $39.99 instead of its usual $49.99, saving you $10 on the physical copy of the Nintendo Switch game. If you have fond memories of Sports Wii, you’ll feel right at home with the title’s six mini-games, since it’s essentially the spiritual successor to the classic Wii. It may not be the cultural touchstone Sports Wii was, but it’s definitely a fun way to spend time with the family – especially if you have kids or young parents. Nintendo even plans to introduce a golf mini-game later as free downloadable content…as if soccer and chambara weren’t enough. Read our review.


Nintendo Switch Sports

The spiritual successor of Sports Wii, Nintendo Switch Sports has six mini-games that use Joy-Con motion controls. Football, badminton, tennis, bowling, volleyball and chambara can be played solo, in pairs or with up to four participants in some cases. The physical copy of the game also includes a leg strap for use with the football.

Still some savings from Saturday

  • Another smart home deal on offer elsewhere is Amazon’s Google Nest Wifi router three-pack, which is currently available for $256.02 instead of $468. The mesh network kit is enough to cover a very large house, and if you connect them to each other via Ethernet, you will have a very strong Wi-Fi 5 signal. Read our review.
  • Totallee discounts its 50% MagSafe Hybrid & Hybrid Phone Cases until June 15. These lightweight cases — which are available for the iPhone 13 as well as the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 — normally cost $39 but are now down to just $20. Simply search for hybrid models under the transparent options for each applicable phone model.
  • The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro dropped to $119.99 ($80 off) at Amazon in the purple colorway. It’s one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for the excellent noise-canceling headphones, which pair best with Samsung Galaxy phones. As long as you don’t mind the pop of color, these true wireless headphones are a great buy. Read our review.
  • If the Buds Pro aren’t cheap enough for you, the more modest Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are just $94.99 ($55 off) at Amazon. These headphones exceed their weight class in terms of audio quality and noise cancellation, and they are currently available in black or olive. Read our review.
