Nest Learning Thermostat, $200 with code NESTDEAL | Nest Cam Security Camera, $150 with code NESTCAM

We expect we’ll be seeing Nest’s annual $50 Black Friday discounts from several retailers in the coming days, but Best Buy struck first today with promo code NESTDEAL.

Needless to say, Nest has a lot more competition in the smart home space than in previous years, including the Ecobee3 thermostat (also $200 right now), and the excellent Logitech Circle security cam (down to $130). I’d concede that Nest’s stuff still looks the nicest from an industrial design perspective, but these competitors are worth a look too, especially at Black Friday prices.
