Nest Protect deals?

Hi there,

I remember last year there were several deals on Nest Protect devices (wired & battery powered) - but I can't seem to find any this year at the usual suspects (BB, HD, Lowes...).

Anyone have any recommendations on where to look this week?

Cheers!

139.99 @ bestbuy.ca seems to be the best price I can find. I could have sworn these were $99 last year.

Side topic.. Has anyone installed Nest Protect on a guest network? Nest advises against this as the products may not be able to communicate with each other. I still want to do it for security purposes but I don't want to get on ladder to change things until I know it works :)

I am in the need for 3 and hunting for them. It's $131.09 free shipping to Canada at B&H photo. I was wondering if Home Depot price-matches this.

It will still work as Nest also uses it's own wireless protocol (Weave) for interconnect in a situation where the WiFi network is down. The guest network will prevent communication between devices using the WiFi network due to AP isolation. So in your case it will always use its own wireless protocol for interconnect even if the Nest is successfully connected to your guest WiFi. If you are tech savvy you can setup a separate WiFi SSID for smart home devices like I did which allows devices on that WiFi network to talk to each other and access the internet but can't talk to any of my local devices (my computers, NAS box, router setup interface, etc).
