I expect prices could go even lower in the rare chance that Nest releases a new camera in the fall. I'm going to wait a couple months just in case. Worst case scenario, no new hardware release but Black Friday is not too far away.

Also, buy from USA if you can. The Canadian version doesn't have 5GHz support but US version does.

The price might go down as Google will push for newer IQ version which works with Assistant but this is good deal
Indoor also on sale for $522- 3 Camers
Plus $5/month for 5 days cloud recording is great - annual is $50 - per camera and 50% off on additional cameras

Do you get access to the preferred nest aware pricing you’ve indicated here when you purchase a bundle? When I go to the nest site now it’s still indicating $5 /month /camera for 5 days of storage, not 10

for those not interested in paying a monthly fee, Costco now carry a Panasonic wifi camera.

Only thing I don't like is without a subscription you only get 3h history, which is pretty useless if something happens while asleep.

Ive been looking at these but dont want the monthly cost PER camera.
Arlo pro
lorex wireless 2 camera system is 449.

I would go nest if they had a pay 1 fee for all the items in your home or something better then 50% off for additional.
ING Direct since the beginning! Tangerine to the end!

$90 one-time, then set up a copy of Motion or Zoneminder on an old PC with immediate offsite copies and you're done, no monthly fees, no-one can snoop on your life.
Can you link to the motion software? Zone minder looks like it doesn't work on windows, and I don't know how to setup linux. Also, can you elaborate on how you setup?

No exaggeration, you could set up a copy of Ubuntu Linux on a virtual machine or low-end PC/raspberry pi in less than an hour. It's really simple, download the distro, image it to a USB key (there are simple utilities for this) and boot off it on the PC, or use it under the VM, set it up with its super-friendly process, reboot. From there it's just a few cut-and-paste commands to set up zoneminder. https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... untu-16-04

Motion is lower-level so for someone who wants a does-it-all setup, zoneminder is probably the better choice. I use the lower-level approach, but there is a huge community around zoneminder.

My setup is an always-on onsite PC that the cameras copy motion-detected images to, then a process that copies those images to a remote pc, where I have some viewer software installed. With a large hard disk, the images are basically available forever. It's fun to compare them from year to year, and over time, with the open source basis of machine learning, functionality like object and individual recognition will be available without any need for privacy-surrendering cloud based functionality.
