Amazon delivers just about anything – and we’re not just talking about packages. Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest annual shopping event that delivers some of the best deals you’ll ever see throughout the year. And this year’s Prime Day has officially started. The two-day event runs between July 16 and 17. That means it’s time to look for the best deals.

One of the brands we always monitor during Prime Day is Google Nest. It may be Amazon’s rival in the home security space, but it’s also one of the best-selling security camera brands on Amazon. So as Prime Day continues to drop new deals, let’s take a look at a few ways to save on your Nest Cam purchase.

If you’re not familiar with Nest, we took their cameras for a weeklong spin in our hands-on Google Nest Cam review. They offer three cameras, the Google Nest Cam (battery), Nest Cam (wired, indoor), and Nest Cam with floodlight. They also have two video doorbells, the Nest Doorbell (battery) and the Nest Doorbell (wired). Let’s see how you can save on these devices, and how much.

Are There Prime Day 2024 Deals for Nest Cams?

We weren’t sure, as Google Nest hasn’t consistently offered Prime Day discounts every year. But now that Prime Day 2024 is here, we can confirm: There are discounts up for grabs. Granted, there aren’t a lot of them, but they’re worth taking a look at if you’re planning to buy Nest Cams.

Nest Cam Packages Prime Day 2024 Prices Savings
Nest Cam (wired, indoor) $69.99 $30
Nest Cam (indoor/outdoor, battery) $124.00 $55
Nest Cam (indoor/outdoor, battery) pack of 2 $249.99 $80
Nest Cam with floodlight $199.99 $80
Nest Doorbell (battery) $119.99 $60

That’s right; you can save up to $80 if you purchase Nest Cams right now. And take note that the biggest discounts are on the individual camera packs, so don’t worry about finding a multi-camera bundle that works for you. Just list all the cameras you need and add them to your cart one by one.

This year’s Prime Day discounts on Nest Cams track with discounts from previous years, so it’s likely that those are the best prices we’ll see throughout the rest of the year. Don’t miss out!

Savings Tip: Want to see the other side of the fence? Check out Ring’s security camera Prime Day deals. Ring, which was bought by Amazon in 2018, typically offers the biggest savings on Prime Day, with discounts often reaching over 50-percent.

Pricing on Nest Cams

There’s no getting around it: Nest Cams are expensive. Their popular battery-powered outdoor camera is a sobering $179.99. Don’t worry, it’s natural to flinch; we did, too, at first.

There are some high-end Arlo camera systems that come close to this price, but by and large, it’s not too often that we find a single camera at the price point of a Nest Cam.

But we’re talking about some of the smartest home security technology available today. To us, that means you’re paying for more than brand prestige and rock-solid hardware; you’re also getting a product that will monitor your home effectively and efficiently.

FYI: We all know Google and Amazon don’t always play well in the sandbox. But that’s what’s great about Prime Day: Regardless of the brand, this shopping bonanza is always an ideal time to save money on lots of consumer tech, home security, and smart home gadgets.

Final Thoughts: Nest Cams and Prime Day 2024

In any discussion about Nest Cams, we always make a point to note that these devices, with Google pulling the strings, really do take smart home security to another level entirely. And, like the best wireless cameras in the industry, you’ll also get smooth 1080p HD video with HDR, advanced motion and person detection, and a super-customizable mobile app.

As far as cost-savings, Nest Cams offer packages and bundles throughout the year so you can buy multiple cameras and devices as a system and save a few bucks. That’s a common practice you’ll find in this industry year-round, but particularly during sale holidays. As Prime Day 2024 continues, keep your eyes on the Google store on Amazon; you might just find more deals and discounts.
