After launching in Australia in July, it looks like Nest products, including the Nest Protect and Nest Cam Indoor & Outdoor are on-sale at iSelect, the exclusive partner for Nest in Australia.

Both the Nest Cam Indoor and Nest Cam Outdoor are reduced from $319 to $250 each, with an option to further discount the price by $50 if you go through with an iSelect Insurance, Utility or Finance comparison.

The full discount after doing the comparison, which brings both cameras down to $200AU each, still makes them slightly more expensive than ordering from Amazon, but there’s no shipping or US to AU power adapter worries.

The deal for the extra $50 off is on until September 30th, while the $70 off the retail price of $319 seems to be due to their being promoted on Channel 9 show, The Block, so it’s unclear when that ends.

Specs for the cameras include:

Yes, the Nest Protect is also on-sale, though not as spectacularly as the Nest Cam Indoor/Outdoor. Normally priced at $189, you can get a Nest Protect (battery or cabled) for $170 – with free shipping.

The deal on the Nest Protect appears to also be due to their being featured on The Block, so it may last till the end of this series.

Long story short, if you want a deal on any of the Nest stuff without importing from the US, then head over to the Nest store on iSelect and check out what they have.
