'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Building out a smart home hub can make your life so much easier. As someone who has automated calendar reminders and smart pet feeders that know how much my cats get fed daily, I appreciate that making life smarter and not harder is an essential component to easing stress so you can focus on the bigger things while making sure your house runs smoothly. 

Google smart home products can help lighten your hectic schedule, whether it's to add calendar reminders, optimize your home's temperature, or even help walk you through a new recipe you've been dying to make. If you're hoping to build or expand your smart home setup, Wellbots right now is running a sale on Google's signature products, some at their lowest prices to date. Be sure to check out the list below and grab the codes to score the best deals.

Help keep porch pirates at bay with the Nest Hello Doorbell. You'll have access to 24/7 live streaming with the doorbell. It also can detect movement and share the live feed with you if you want to make sure your packages are safe or if there is a family member stopping by.

You can get it for $10 more at Amazon, but this is the lowest price we've seen on a smart doorbell that integrates with the Google system. Use code GOOGLE60 to get the deal.

  • Current Price: $119

Google's easy-to-use router is also easy to set up. Its simple design tucks away in any home space, and you can monitor settings from your phone or Google Assistant. It can handle up to 100 devices connected to it, too.

Get the router itself with code GOOGLE50, or you can opt to save $120 on a router and pointer package with code GOOGLE120 for those who need to cover a larger home space.
