What deals can we expect on Nest smart home technology this Black Friday?
Last year Nest offered several great discounts on security cameras, thermostats and smoke detectors during the Black Friday sales season. We have looked at these deals from last year and used them as a basis for predicting what we can expect this year on Nest products.
Nest offer four security cameras, the Nest Cam Indoor, Outdoor, IQ Indoor and IQ Outdoor. They all offer 24/7 live coverage of your home, 1080hp stream and smart alerts on your phone when suspicious activity is spotted. With the new IQ range, Nest has added its ‘Supersight’ technology which offers close up tracking and enhanced zoom. What does this mean? When the IQ camera sees a person it will automatically zoom in and track them whilst simultaneously capturing 4K quality photos. The IQ Indoor cam is already on sale, however, you’ll have to wait till November for the IQ Outdoor version to ship.
Last Black Friday we saw Nest Cam Indoor and Outdoor discounts of 36% and 14% respectively. We’re fully expecting similar sales this year, although we’re factoring in a slightly more conservative 25% and 15% discount for these two cameras. As the Nest Cam IQ is a new product to 2017 we have no basis for predicting sales this year. However, we are fully expecting Nest to take advantage of the sales season hype and are therefore predicting a modest 15% discount for the IQ indoor and outdoor cameras.
