Those looking to add to Google’s initial setup can get the biggest Nest smart display for less today. Adorama has a one-day sale that hits $60 at Nest Hub Max, down to $169. That’s even cheaper than we saw a few weeks ago when various Nest gadgets were discounted on the web, and it’s $11 less than the device’s Black Friday price last year.
Buy the Nest Hub Max at Adorama – $169
The Nest Hub Max scored an 86 knots when it first launched in 2019 and remains a good choice for those who rely on Google Assistant and want a larger home hub with advanced smart features. It has a spacious 10-inch HD touchscreen on which you can do things like make a Zoom call, watch YouTube or Netflix, and control all the smart lights, thermostats, and other gadgets in your home. Its stereo speakers help it sound better than smaller Nest Hubs, so it will be good for watching videos and playing music.
The built-in camera lets you do more than just make video calls. It enables Face Match, which is similar to Google’s Voice Match feature in that it recognizes who is using their device to display information relevant to you, including calendar alerts, messages, and more. If you have more than one person at home using Hub Max, this feature will come in handy. The Hub Max also supports gesture controls, which let you do things like raise your palm to the camera to pause a video or music that’s playing.
While it takes up more space on a countertop than a Nest Cam, the Nest Hub Max can also double as one in your home. You can use the Nest Cam app to access your device’s built-in camera feed, allowing you to keep an eye on your home when you’re away. So while most smart displays are multipurpose devices, you’re really making a lot of money with the Nest Hub Max – especially when it’s on sale like this.
