Nest Hello Video Doorbell

Crutchfield customer from Brecksville, OH on 11/5/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great image quality. Installing first was not difficult. No instructions available on setting up a 2nd nest doorbell. Had to pay an installer $110 to set up second. Doorbell does not always ring on phone, not clear at all why it does sometimes, and not at others. No saved video at all unless you pay for subscribing to their service for EACH doorbell and camera.

Bought installed and now enjoying!

Pros: Works well with a nice picture.

Cons: Installation can be tricky depending on your situation. I'm not a fan of the design but I overlook that because of the functionality.

Amazing Video Doorbell

Jim from Rochester, MN on 3/18/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is an amazing video door bell! The packaging contents and installation instructions were the best I've ever experienced! It took me an additional 30 min to install due to the short wires exposed for my use on the front door frame, however, the special wire connectors provided with the unit made all the difference. The setup went smoothly. The picture on my phone is amazing! The unit pics up all motion in front of our home, with a wide field of vision and very sharp images from the fringes of the picture. The close up of action immediately in front oorf the door bell are clear and very detailed - thanks to the HD camera view and color. I have had the unit installed for 2 weeks now and am still learning about how best to use it in our neighborhood. Very impressive all around! Also, we've had air temperatures at -10 degrees below zero and it worked perfectly.

Pros: Ease of installation, setup and quality of captured video.

Cons: None sofar...

Amazing Product

Nest is the best! After several months of using the Ring doorbell I grew dissatisfied with the clumsy app and poor image quality. I am happy to have made the switch!

Pros: Minutes to install the hardware and the app makes pairing it up to my account a breeze.

Cons: None!

Love my Nest Hello!

Crutchfield customer from Spring Lake, NJ on 12/7/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I took a while deciding which video doorbell to purchase. I chose the Nest Hello! The Nest Hello's online installation video was easy to follow. I installed it myself in about 30 minutes. Facial recognition and active zone features are not available without a subscription. I now have a clear view of my front porch and street both day and night! Feeling safe! The next time nest Hello is on sale, I will purchase another for my side door! Crutchfield delivered it even sooner than expected!

Best doorbell so far

Dennis from Philadelphia, PA on 11/15/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

One thing that isn't apparent about this doorbell is that it already comes with a 15º wedge so that you can angle the doorbell slightly (presumably 15º) and see who is at your door more fully. I also love that it works with my new google hub! Simply say show me my front door and the camera image show up in real time. Awesome!

Pros: Works with Google Hub Comes with a wedge.

Cons: $5/ month for recordings/face detection

I'm disabled and the ability to check the door without using a walker is a great feature. The video resolution is great. Some trouble hearing audio.

Pros: Very handy for disabled.

Cons: Too many "notifications" Audio could be clear and noise comes over chime box.

Nest Hello

This is an awesome doorbell! This is the third one I've installed for a family member. I love how it integrates into the Nest app with other Nest products. The one thing it lacks is a wall plate to help hide unsightly holes left by the prior doorbell.

Pros: Easy installation Easy app integration with other Nest products and Google Home

Cons: Needs to include a wall plate to hide unsightly holes similar to the Nest thermostat.

My new Nest Doorbell is amazing. I even installed it myself! It joins my nest cam and gives me a view of both the front and rear of my home. I love these products. Buying them from Crutchfield made them even better. Easy se lection, fast and free shipping right to my door in two days. It can't get much better than that. Nest from Crutchfield, the only way to go.

Software needs a complete re-do

Alex from West Springfield, MA on 5/21/2018

I have had the Ring door bell pro installed on my front and rear door doors for about 1 year now.. i have the nest thermostats so i decided to give the nest door bells a try. install was easy... syncing up with the WIFI and all that fun stuff was no problem. Video quality is right up there with the Ring products, but thats were the similarities end. The nest door bell only detects motion or people if the object or person is less than 5 feet from the camera, anything more than that it does not notify you. It also only gives you notifications for people.. for example , we live in a very rural area and have a lot of wildlife (foxes, deer, ex..) not once does the nest pick up any of these motions. So if your dog gets out , it won't notify you. I have played with the settings, and nothing seemed to help. Also there seemed to be a delay (about 1-2 min) from when the motion event happens and when you are notified. A doorbell ring there is less delay, but with the ring products everything was instant. I wanted to like these doorbells but after about a month, we switched back to the Ring and could not be happier with them.

Easy installation! Works flawlessly!

Teressa from Clayton, NC on 5/13/2018

I have already invested in other Nest products, so I was eager to try the new Hello doorbell. The setup was SUPER simple! The Nest App on the phone guides you through installation step-by-step, helps you understand the wiring on your existing doorbell chime, and connects to your home wifi network easily. (I have Google wifi as well.) It works flawlessly! The most difficult part of the whole process was removing the crummy old doorbell. The video is fantastic, and I like that you get a head-to-toe view of the person at the door. Perhaps the delivery people will stop THROWING packages onto my porch once they see the video doorbell. I will definitely be purchasing a second one to replace the old doorbell at the back door too. Suffice it to say, I am SUPER happy with this doorbell.

Pros: Easy to install, works well with existing Nest ecosystem, pre-programmed responses to rings, ability to set quiet hours

Cons: None so far!

Not so hard to install if you have some experience. There is a lag to load even with the fastest wifi, they should just load a quick snap shot and just do voice that may speed up things. Still at times it recognizes familiar faces and but not all the time.

Working very well.

Chet from Staten Island, NY on 3/28/2018

So far, really liking this. After doing tons of research, it was worth the wait for the Nest Hello. Relatively easy to install (although I wish the wires coming from my house were longer). Works great in conjunction with my other Nest products and my Amazon Echo Show. About the only suggestions, 1) There is a bit of a delay in getting a notification that someone is at the door, but all video doorbells have that issues. Second, Nest really should provide longer mounting screws. The item comes with 1/2" wood screws. I replaced them with 2-1/2" ones for a more secure mounting.
