Just spent the last twenty minutes trying to buy the Groupon deal. They won't allow non-US purchase...so unless you have a US mailing address and (I assume) a US credit card you are out of luck.

You have probably written your postal code in a wrong format.

don't want to hi-jack

Ring Alarm also has their products on sale.
I just received mine, no taxes and no duties shipped to my door and they have Canadian support - cheaper than any retailer in Canada right now.
I haven't tested it yet tho.
Even better if you have a Ring Doorbell - their alarm monitoring service also includes their cloud service for the videos

One controversy to keep in mind, Nest has recently announced that it will support Google Home but it was never mentioned anywhere that it had a hidden "deactivated" microphone.

https://www.businessinsider.com/nest-mi ... ret-2019-2
Google's explanation makes sense, but it just adds to the growing unease about privacy with any of these devices. We have a Nest Protect smoke/CO detector at home, and I've always known that it has a microphone that it uses to listen to itself when it tests the audible alarm. But who's to say if that microphone can be used for remote listening? Nobody knows.

Ring has an even worse security problem, partly due to their horrifyingly lax internal privacy rules: https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/10/amazo ... -concerns/
It turns out that all Ring employees have access to all private videos from Ring doorbells and home cameras with just your email address. Employees joked about looking in on each other. Even worse, they shared that access with third-party contractors in Ukraine who were doing software development work for them.

Thanks -

I'll break-even after 5 months of not paying Rogers for Smart Home Monitoring lol.

No central monitoring in Canada, but I figure I'll get alerts to my Nest App and can call the authorities myself. Is that what others plan to do?
