A perfect choice for the IoT fan on anyone’s list. The Nest Thermostat will help keep homes a little bit cozier this winter (barring any major bugs). This is the third generation of the thermostat, announced in September 2015. It offers a high-resolution 2-inch (diameter) display and can detect the presence of people from further away than its predecessor. The Nest Cam, meanwhile, is a respectable indoor security camera.
You can grab these deals from Amazon, Target, Sam’s Club, Walmart, and Best Buy (just to name a few retailers). Most are also selling the ecobee3, an excellent alternative to the Nest Thermostat, for $200 as well.
