Nest Hello Video Doorbell Ships

Video Doorbell Ring gets competition.

Nest is shipping now the Nest Hello video doorbell. The device is directly competing with the Ring Video Doorbell. Amazon just bought Ring company last month. Nest Hello sells for $229 at Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowe’s and on the Nest online store. The Ring 2 video doorbell sells for only $199 on amazon.com.

Because Nest Hello can detect a person, you’ll get an alert even before someone rings the bell. You can see who’s there from the Nest app and have a conversation. It’s designed to be a natural experience – not like talking to a bulky, techy black box. You and your visitors will hear each other loud and clear, without street noise and echoes. And if you can’t answer the door, just choose a quick, pre-recorded response like, “Just a moment, we’ll be right there.” Even these messages are warm and human, created with your visitor in mind.

Nest Hello will work in most homes that already have a wired doorbell. But in about 25% of those homes, the doorbell system can’t deliver enough voltage to Nest Hello. So you must check that your doorbell wiring is compatible. If you have a multimeter and know how to use it, you can check your doorbell’s wire voltage or have a Nest Pro do it for you.

Also available now is the Nest x Yale Lock. The Nest x Yale Lock is key-free and tamper-proof. It connects to the Nest app, so you can unlock the door from anywhere. Create custom passcodes for people you trust and decide when they work, so not everyone can get into your home at all hours.

You’ll get an alert on your phone whenever someone locks and unlocks the door. If someone forgets their passcode, just let them in from the Nest app. And you’ll never forget to lock the door, because it can automatically lock itself when Nest knows you’re away with Home/Away Assist.

The Nest x Yale Lock comes in three finishes: Satin Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and Polished Brass and is available for $249 or $279 with Nest Connect at the Best Buy online shop or nest.com.

Nest products are designed to keep your home secure, outside and in. And with the addition of our new lock and doorbell, they work even better because they work together. When you unlock your door with the Nest x Yale Lock, the Nest Secure alarm system disarms automatically, without you having to tap your key fob or use the Nest app. Your indoor cameras turn off to protect your privacy, and your thermostat turns up to make you cozy. All automatically.

And when someone’s at the door, see who’s there with Nest Hello or your Nest Cam outdoor security camera, then let them in. With Google Assistant-enabled hardware, just use your voice to control Nest products. Ask Google to arm Nest Secure. Or have Google announce “Someone’s at your door” when your Nest Hello rings. Google can even tell you who it is – if you add a Nest Aware subscription to your Nest Hello, you’ll get familiar face alerts.

The third product Nest launched today is the long-awaited temperature sensor. Nest owners can let their thermostat know what room should be the most comfortable. You can put the Nest Temperature Sensor on a wall or shelf in a room that matters most to you. In the Nest app, choose the temperature you want that room to be, along with a time of day. And your Nest thermostat will make sure that room is just how you like it.

The Nest Temperature sensor is available for pre-order on the Nest online shop for $39. Nest will ship the sensor starting April.

The Nest Learning Thermostats are on sale at amazon.com. Deals start at $217 for a 3rd generation Nest.
