This wired video doorbell offers HD video, people detection and two-way audio. Water Leak Alarm
A video doorbell is a great place to start when smartening up your home. Not only will it help to bolster your security, but a smart doorbell also adds a ton of convenience to your life with the ability to interact with visitors or delivery drivers even when you're away from home. For a limited time, Woot is offering the wired Nest Doorbell for just $75, down from its original retail price of $229, making now a great time to pick one up. Be aware, though, that the deal is only available through June 8 or while supplies last.
The wired Nest Doorbell, formerly known as the Nest Hello, originally launched in 2018 so it's by no means the latest and greatest video doorbell camera on the market. That being said, it still covers all of the basic functionality needed for those just getting started with smart home tech and, with today's deal, it's considerably cheaper than the second-gen Nest Doorbell model from 2022.
The doorbell offers high-definition video with night vision, plus a 4:3 ratio so you can easily see people or packages at your doorstep. You can check the doorbell from wherever you are with 24/7 streaming and use two-way audio to interact with whoever is at the door. The doorbell even gives you alerts when a person is at your door, whether they ring the doorbell or not. And because it's wired, you don't have to worry about it running out of battery power (though you'll want to make sure your existing wiring and chime is compatible).
Smart Control With an optional Nest Aware subscription you'll be able to unlock some more smart alert types and recording options -- some of which are included with the second-gen model for free -- though you don't need a subscription for the basic functionality.
