Newegg is currently discounting the Nest Secure Alarm System Starter Kit, bringing it down to an all-time low price of just $269.99. This starter pack is usually priced at $499, so this is nearly half off, making it an insanely good deal. If you already own Nest products, or looking for a system to protect your home, this is definitely the security system to pick up.
The starter pack here comes with the Nest Guard, two Nest Detect Sensors, and two Nest Tags. The Nest Guard is essentially the brains of the home security system here. The Nest Tags can be used to enter your home without setting off the alarm, just tap the tag on the Nest Guard when you come in, and everything will be good. Of course, you can use your smartphone to disarm and arm the system using the Nest app, so you don't need to use the Nest Tags. These are made more for kids that don't have smartphones, and come home from school when no one's home. They can tap the tag on the Nest Guard to keep the alarm from going off. On top of that, it will also notify you when they get home, so you'll know that they are home safe. The Nest Detect Sensors can be used on doors or windows in your home. These sensors are used to find out if the window or door is being opened. Since robbers do generally break in through a window or door, this can be very useful. These are also pretty small, so they can be tucked away quite nicely, where no one will see them. With Nest Secure, you can keep an eye on your home when you aren't home, and know the second someone is breaking in, or is in your home that shouldn't be.
Nest Secure works great with other Nest products, especially the Nest Cam. If you already have some Nest Cams around your home, they can work with Nest Secure to help you see what's going on in your home, instead of just knowing that someone is in your home, you can get a visual of who exactly it is. And if you have the Nest Hello, you can see when people are coming to the door and attempting to get in, or what have you. It's a very good system that works really well with other products from Nest.
Newegg does offer free shipping on this product, however its free shipping is somewhat slow. You can upgrade to faster shipping, if you don't want to wait around five business days to get your product, which most people won't want to wait that long anyways. Of course, if you are a Newegg Premiere Member, you do get free unlimited 3-day shipping, which is always nice to have. Though it's not quite as fast as Amazon Prime's free shipping which is two-days, it's still not bad. Newegg does not charge taxes in most States, so you'll need to check to see whether you'll be charged or not.
