Deter porch pirates: Google’s Nest Cam with Floodlight is $90 off

The Google Nest Cam with Floodlight mounted on a house.

With porch pirates always on the prowl to steal your packages, one of the best ways to protect your family from them is to invest in security camera deals. The Google Nest Cam with Floodlight is an excellent choice for this purpose, especially since it’s currently on sale from Best Buy for a more affordable $190 following a $90 discount on its sticker price of $280. This is one of the retailer’s early Black Friday deals, but since there’s no assurance that it will remain available until the shopping holiday, it’s highly recommended that you proceed with purchasing it right now.

Why you should buy the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight

Once you’ve installed the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight and connected it to your home’s Wi-Fi network, you’ll never have to worry about your packages getting stolen again. The security camera‘s built-in intelligence is capable of telling the difference between a person, vehicle, and animal, and once it detects motion, it will send an alert through the Google Home app on your smartphone. You can then look through the device’s 1080p HD camera to see what happened, and if the activity happens at night, you can set the floodlight to illuminate the area for a better view and to deter the potential thief.

You’ll be able to customize the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight according to your preferences, including a specific schedule for the floodlight to turn on and off, and the sensitivity of its motion sensor. The security camera will keep up to three hours of video recordings on the cloud, but if you subscribe to Nest Aware, you can extend that history to up to 60 days.

If you want to avoid the frustration of getting hit by a porch pirate, you should consider buying a smart security camera like the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight. Originally priced at $280, it’s down to just $190 from Best Buy for savings of $90. At this lowered price, you may even be able to afford multiple cameras to place around your home. You’re going to have to act fast though, because there’s no telling if the offer will still be available tomorrow. Buy the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight as soon as possible to make sure that you secure the discount.

Dyson’s best cordless vacuum is $200 off for Cyber Monday
The Dyson V15 Detect using its laser sensor to find dust on the floor.

A cordless vacuum makes life so much simpler than an old-fashioned corded vacuum cleaner. The Cyber Monday deals going on at the moment are your ideal chance to score a new cordless vacuum for less. In particular, we've spotted an awesome deal at Best Buy on the Dyson V15. It usually costs $800 but it's down to $600 for a limited time only so you save $200 compared to usual. It's one of the more expensive cordless vacuums but it's also one of the best. Here's why you might want to consider buying it before Cyber Monday ends and the price returns to normal.

Why you should buy the Dyson V15 Cordless Vacuum
The Dyson V15 is pretty high-tech, as you'd expect from a Dyson. For example, the vacuum can adjust the force of the vacuum for various debris types as you vacuum to make sure you get the most efficient use of the battery. That's how it can manage up to 60 minutes of run time, which is more than most cordless vacuum cleaners on the market. Also, an LED screen at the top of the vacuum tells you how much debris you've picked up, which isn't that useful of a metric, but it's certainly interesting.

This is your excuse to buy a temperature controlled smart mug
A black Ember Smart Mug 2 on a countertop.

There are a lot of temperature-controlled products out there, such as mugs or water bottles, but the Ember Mug was one of the first, and you can tell from its premium look and pricing. Luckily, there are still quite a few great Black Friday deals floating around, including this deal from Best Buy on the Ember Mug 2. While it usually goes for $130, you can grab it right now for just $100, which makes it a much more reasonably priced mug, if still a slightly bit expensive.

Why you should buy the Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug²
Those who like hot drinks know the struggle that comes with having a drink go cold, especially when something comes up that takes your attention away. You might make your nice cup of tea or coffee, get an email or call, and forget about it, only to come back and find it tepid or lukewarm, which is probably worse than if it was just cold. Luckily, the Ember Mug 2 does an excellent job of keeping your drink warm, with a temperature range between 120 Fahrenheit and 145 Fahrenheit. That's a pretty good range for most folks unless you love your hot drink piping hot and nearly boiling, in which case this might be a little bit on the low end for you.
