Description

Why we like the Nest Hello video doorbell

Smart doorbells have been a thing for several years now and they have really revolutionised the smart home camera industry. It just makes sense. Add a high quality HD camera to your doorbell to keep an eye on the most important part of your house: the front door. Ring has had a pretty good stranglehold on the smart video doorbell industry up until 2018. But this year Nest has entered the fold with arguably the best one yet. The Nest Hello video doorbell entered with great fanfare and many additional features that we’ve never seen on a video doorbell before like deep integration with the Google Home ecosystem and the addition of AI functionality.

Voice Assistant Compatibility

The Nest Hello video doorbell is fully compatible with both Google Home and Amazon Alexa devices. Of course Google Home is not surprise since Nest is owned by Alphabet (Google’s overarching brand). The integration with Google Home is super awesome actually. The Nest Hello integrates the great familiar face detection that debuted with the Nest Cam IQ last year. Basically this is able to use Google’s extensive AI algorithms to recognise individual faces. When someone you don’t know comes to the door your Google Home and Google Home Mini devices will actually announce verbally that “Someone is at the door.” This gets even more awesome when you teach the Nest Hello about familiar faces. So your Google Home can actually say “Uncle Jack is at the front door.” This is a standout feature that really shows the integration of the Nest and Google design teams. Aside from this, you can cast your camera feed to any Chromecast device through Google Home or to an Amazon Echo Show or Fire TV device with Amazon Alexa.

Overall the Nest Hello video doorbell is the most connected smart doorbell we have seen when it comes to voice assistants.

Other Compatibility

The Nest Hello will work with both IFTTT and Stringify but will also integrate very deeply in the whole Nest Ecosystem. Of course you can login through the Nest app and have direct access to the crystal clear tall-format doorbell video feed alongside your normal Nest Cams, Nest Protects and Nest Secure security system controls. It’s a real treat to have a mostly Nest system for the simplicity of using their single app to control everything.

Extra features

We love the vertical display on the Nest Hello. This works so well for the front door situation where you can see the person at the front door in shockingly good detail. Nest Hello also takes advantage of 24/7 video recording to the cloud when you are a Nest Aware subscriber. For $5 a month we think this is a no brainer since it is also necessary for the familiar face detection.

Conclusion

There is not better built video doorbell on the market than the Nest Hello video doorbell right now. Nest took their time coming out with this device but really knocked it out of the park with this one. Watch out Ring, Nest is here and they are now the kings of smart video doorbells with the Nest Hello video doorbell.

With video doorbells, video and audio quality matter, but the real trick is getting the notifications just right. That way, you're not bombarded by alerts, but you don't miss anything important, either. The Nest Hello ($199) succeeds by continuously...

    Great addition to the Nest Product Line-up. I was a pre-release order and can say I’m really satisfied with the Hello. I have multiple cameras; smoke detectors, thermostats and this fits in nicely to the line-up. I didn’t want to go with another brand camera for the front door and then have all the others be Nest. Easy to install, simple directions (make sure you test the old doorbell voltage before you order). I spent more time patching and painting the stucco prior to install than the actual install itself. Setup is like all Nest Products..easy breezy. Video quality is great and the 15 degree angle base (if you need it) is a great design feature. I actually painted the mounting base and camera body to match my architecture standards (townhome HOA) so it looks great. If you can handle paint tape and an exact-o knife, it is worth it, but the unit looks subtle in the basic white finish. The familiar facial recognition feature along with the standard Nest motion and person alerts give it robust functionality. f you are a Nest fan…add this to the stable!

    Nice Video Doorbell. But has one issue. I purchased the Nest Hello a week ago. The minute it arrived I installed it. It took about 30 minutes to install and get it up and running.
    I works very nice. Video is clear. The speaker is loud enough that the person at the door can hear the voice on the other end. The app is easy to use.
    The one problem that exists, is that with my Samsung Galaxy S5, the person at the door hears their voice echo / delay back at them a second or two after they speak to the person inside. Its confusing to talk when you constantly hear what you are saying come back at you seconds later. It works fine with Apple iphone 6s. I’m guessing that there is an issue with the Nest App / Nest Hello and Samsung Galaxy S5. I don’t have this problem with my Nest indoor cam and My Samsung.
    The facial recognition works great. It alerts me when a familiar face is recognized at the door. Option to name the familiar person so that you know exactly who is coming and going.

    Great Doorbell Overall. I got this to replace my SkyBell HD. I will be getting more Nest cams and figured the Doorbell would be a good place to start. Overall it looks a lot nicer than the Skybell HD Honeywell trim I had and is easier for people to find the button due to the large blue ring that pulses when it detects someone. Install was a bit of a pain, I had to take a picture if the QR code with a different phone so my phone could scan it. This Doorbell required an extra piece to be installed in the Chime which my SkyBell did not. Overall though the Nest Hello works very well, the app is responsive and it hasn’t missed anyone. The Nest aware subscription is a very nice feature that allows you to go back and watch every minute if you wanted to, not just events. It marks events as sounds, motion or people so it’s easy to find events when needed. Picture quality is very good and the ability to designate different zones and eliminate problem areas like a street makes the number of false alarms much less. I love being able to see the video on my TV but Chromecast as well.

  4. First Video Door Bell

    Hello ! This is my first video door bell for my brand new home and I’m glad i bought it . Love it so far!
    It was super easy to install , What took longer was finding the breaker switch for the Doorbell , after a long google search , was convinced not every home has a breaker for a doorbell. May be NEST installation video should have mentioned this ?? LOL!

    Remove existing doorbell, drill holes, connect wires and boom! you are done . Install the app and connect to your wifi!.

    NEST app is also easy to setup. Just connect your HELLO to your home wifi, Play through the settings , see what you prefer and save. I liked the notification for the Sound as well, depends on the individual, you may get annoyed with the constant notification if there is too much traffic .

    Be aware of the data consumption , High quality setting can use 300gb+ per month . 300gb+ !!!!

    Been using it for couple of weeks, dont see any drawbacks so far..
