The Nest Hello is a feature-rich video doorbell that easily integrates with your Google Home hub. Plus, it looks really, really good.
First things first: the Nest Hello is a very good-looking video doorbell. It’s also a very good smart doorbell, with sharp HD video, person alerts, and motion and sound detection.
The Nest Hello is an intelligent doorbell that helps you watch your front door. It sends you alerts via the Nest app when it sees a person, detects motion, or the doorbell button is pressed. It also comes equipped with two-way audio with noise cancellation, so you can hear whoever is on the other side of the door clearly.
Nest Hello also lets you utilize prerecorded messages, which can be a boon if you’re in the middle of a meeting when a package arrives. In the app, you can choose a prerecorded quick response like “Leave it by the door” and the Nest Hello will play it on your behalf.
With a Nest Aware subscription, you’ll get even more impressive features, including Familiar Face alerts. Nest’s facial recognition will learn the difference between your friends and your foes, and the Nest Hello—if synced with a Google Home device—will announce the former when they stop by.
ASecureLife’s recommendation: The Nest Hello is a solid video doorbell that’s easy to use whether you’re at home or not. We recommend it if you want a reliable doorbell with one-of-a-kind features.
