Update (6/9 7:30am): The Nest Security Cam is now available at Amazon for $149 shipped.

Target offers the Nest Security Camera for $149 shipped. For comparison, it carries a list price of $199 and typically sells for that much at Amazon and other online retailers. Today’s deal is a match of our holiday mention and the best price we’ve seen since.

Nest Cam brings 24/7 surveillance to your home, office or outdoor space. It is the best-selling remote monitoring system at Amazon where it has collected a 4/5 star rating from over 3,000 customers. The wired USB-powered camera is capable of detecting movement and offers two-way communication via the built-in speaker/microphone. It also works in conjunction with the full line of Nest products for increased functionality like auto-away and more. I picked up this camera during the holidays and have been very pleased with its quality and software. We use it to check-in on a property that we’re unable to visit daily. The free iOS and Android app offers remote surveillance and access to archived footage (subscription required after 30-day trial).
