Google is now expanding its selection of reconditioned products to include connected home devices, in addition to the refurbished Pixel phones and Pixelbooks it started reselling last September. If you don’t mind your products being used gently, this is a great way to build your collection of smart home gadgets without breaking the bank.
Do not worry: Google Refurbished Products undergo its extensive quality control process before being resold. Google completely cleans devices and restores them to new condition, then puts them through a series of tests just to make sure they’re still up to the task. All refurbished products are also backed by a one-year warranty from Google.
While the discount isn’t staggering, you can still take advantage of a slight discount on a variety of gadgets, like the refurbished Nest Cam Indoor for $ 115 (down from its original price of $ 129) or the Refurbished Google Nest Protect: 2nd Generation Smoke + CO Alarm for just $ 90 (which turns $ 119 for the latest version). Of course, you can also find a refurbished Pixel 3 there, starting at $ 249 if you’re looking for a new smartphone.
