Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!
There are a few classic pranks. A phone call pretending to be someone else is a quintessential example, so is throwing toilet paper over someone’s home or car. But the most archetypal of all? Well, that’s the time-honored tradition of ringing someone’s doorbell and, well, just fucking legging it.
But, the days of being caught-out by this specific prank are done. So are the times of being surprised by who’s knocking on your door. Or not being able to look at the postman’s butt… Because you can now get $115 off the list price of a Nest Hello video doorbell, making that sucker only $184.99. That’ll show the world.
The Nest Hello video doorbell replaces your current, old-fashioned buzzer with something futuristic and badass. It connects to your home‘s Wi-Fi and can stream to a device of your choice for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The video is also in HD, meaning you can get a good look at whoever’s creeping up to your porch.
The software on the Nest Hello is also pretty snazzy. It can recognize specific people and send you alert when they’re at your door, as well as play pre-recorded messages.
Nest was acquired by Google in 2014 and the company has been going from strength-to-strength with its hardware. The Nest Hello is arguable its most famous bit of kit and reviews across the internet have been glowing. Plus, it works with a range of other smart devices, so is an ideal piece to slot into your connected home.
