Best Buy is offering a free Nest Cam Indoor security camera with the purchase of a Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL when activated with Verizon’s service. Normally $199.99, this offer is competitive with (and perhaps beats, depending who you ask) the company’s prior offer that bundled a $100 Best Buy gift card with the phone.

If you were planning to get the Pixel 3 on Verizon and you have any interest in a smart camera for your home, this offer seems worth taking advantage of. Still, it’s likely that more offers will pop up with Black Friday and Cyber Monday right around the corner.

The Nest Cam Indoor is a good launching point for building out your smart home. For most people, it provides more than enough functionality to keep an eye on things at home while they’re away. The camera can capture 1080p footage and record a 130-degree field of view. This wouldn’t be a good deal if the Pixel 3 weren’t worth the money. Fortunately, for fans of stock Android software and those looking for the best camera on a smartphone, it is.
