Labor Day has arrived and sales have appeared at major US retailers. 

ZDNET Recommends

The US national holiday always falls on the first Monday of September. While in itself a celebration of American industry and the labor movement, retailers take the opportunity to launch time-limited sales on everything from clothing to laptops, home and garden products, technology, and cameras — and this includes home security setups. 

We will be keeping an eye on the best security camera deals we can find at retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target during the celebration. 

We’ve rounded up the best deals on security cameras available online. Check out our top picks below.

A deal worth watching at Best Buy is for the wired version of the Google Nest Doorbell. Currently on offer with an $80 discount, the video doorbell streams video footage 24/7, sending real-time footage to your smartphone in Full HD resolution when you check in — or alerts when motion is detected. 

You can also bundle this device with a Nest Hub or Nest Hub smart display for a discount.

The SimpliSafe home security kit is on sale at Best Buy.

This is a full security solution for homes contained in one package. In total, the $159 kit — currently with a $60 discount — comes with seven pieces: a base station for central control, a keypad, four entry sensors, and a motion sensor, of which the latter could be placed at an entryway, for example. 

The SimpliSafe home security kit is compatible with Amazon Alexa or can be controlled via your smartphone. If you want to add 24/7 professional monitoring, you can choose to subscribe to the SimpliSafe plan. Additional bolt-ons also include glass breakage sensors and a smart video doorbell. 

  • Current price: $329

If you’re looking for a great deal on a full smart security setup, Amazon is offering over $200 off a Blink bundle. The kit includes a video doorbell, floodlight mount, solar panel charging mount, three outdoor cameras, one indoor camera, mounting kits, and one Sync Module 2.

  • Current price: $479
  • Original price: $595

Amazon is offering a cut-price deal on a set of solar Ring cameras. For $479, you can pick up a four-pack of Stick Up Cams, powered via included, mountable solar panels to keep feeds going — while saving you money on your electricity bill. You can connect all of these cameras to the same Ring network, and the devices have both audio and visual feeds — allowing you to monitor your home and also speak to visitors. 

There is an optional Ring Protect plan if you want to sign up for professional 24/7 monitoring.
