This Prime Day Deal Saves You $60 on Google's Battery-Powered Nest Doorbell

Google's battery-powered smart doorbell is an impressive piece of hardware -- and right now, it's on sale for the best price we've seen all year

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Last year, Google released the Nest Doorbell, a battery-powered follow-up to the wired Nest Hello. With a slim design and a solid mix of free-to-use features, the Nest left CNET's reviewer impressed when he tested it out, enough so to earn a high spot on our list of the best video doorbells of the year. At an asking price of $180, it was already an affordable front door alternative to wireless competitors such as the Ring Video Doorbell 4 and the Arlo Wire-Free -- and now, you can get it for even less.

Specifically, you'll find the Nest Doorbell marked down to $120 on Amazon as part of Amazon's official Prime Day deals. At that sale price, which is available until July 17, you're saving $60 and catching the best deal on it that we've seen all year.

There's a lot to like about this smart video doorbell. Though you'll need to pay $6 a month to unlock facial recognition and a full 30 days of video storage, you can skip that monthly fee and still enjoy some great features, including two-way talk, a high-res, 145-degree field of view, and package-, vehicle- or animal-specific smart notifications, as well as 3 hours of free video clip storage. All of it worked well in our tests, particularly the low latency of the video feed, which helps reduce lag during two-way talk conversations.

Though it doesn't currently offer native support for Apple HomeKit, the Nest Doorbell will work with both Alexa and the Google Assistant. That allows users of either platform to receive chime notifications via their Echo or Nest smart speakers, or to pull up the doorbell's video feed on an Echo Show or Nest Hub smart display

As with any Nest gadget, you'll need to log into the Google Home app with a Google account in order to set the thing up, so it'll fit in best with Nest-centric smart homes and anyone else who already uses the Google Home app. If that sounds like you, and if you've been curious about adding a video doorbell into your smart home's mix, then this deal is definitely worth considering.
