Overview: Nest Hello is a doorbell camera that lets you see who's at your
door at all times. It replaces your existing wired doorbell, so it's easy to
install. It does not include a chime, so you can keep your hardwired existing
chime. Nest Hello continuously streams High Definition video,
giving you a clear, bright view of everything at your front door, even at night.
It also lets you talk to your visitor through the Nest app on your smart phone
or tablet. Nest Hello is also compatible with Google Home, which can announce
when someone is at your door. Dimensions: Width 1.7", Height 4.595", Depth 0.932", Weight 4.28
Camera: Nest Hello's camera has a 1/3", 3-megapixel color sensor to deliver
bright color images up to 1600 x 1200, 30 fps. Built-in infrared LEDs let you
see clearly in low light or at nighttime, while HDR (high dynamic range)
provides great detail in bright and dark areas. The camera produces HD video in
4:3 aspect ratio which is designed to show people from head to toe, while the
160° (diagonal) lens gives you a wide field of view. Nest Hello streams video
24/7, allowing you to check the view at your front door at any time.
Wireless Requirements: Nest Hello operates on Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) on the
2.4GHz or 5GHz bands. With 128-bit encryption and two-step verification, your
video stays safe in the cloud. An optional subscription to Nest Aware lets you
record and store video for up to 30 days for retrieval at any time.
HD Talk and Quick Responses: The camera has a built-in microphone that can
pick up sounds, and a speaker that allows you to talk to anyone nearby. The Nest
app has a Talk button that turns on the microphone on your phone or tablet so
you can carry on a two-way conversation. A Talk & Listen tone on the Hello lets
the person at the door know you're about to say something. The Nest app also has
three pre-recorded messages called Quick Responses that you can play when the
doorbell rings and you're not able to come to the door. The Quick Responses are:
- "Just a sec... we'll be right there."
- "Hi there! You can just leave it. Thanks!"
- "Hi there! No one can answer the door right now. We'll be notified you stopped
Quiet Time: The Nest Hello features a quick way to turn off
the chime. This is helpful when someone is sleeping and you don't want the
doorbell to disturb them. In the Nest app, you can simply press the Quiet Time
button to mute the chime. You'll be given options for how long to mute the
chime. If you have a Google Assistant speaker, Quiet Time mutes those
announcements as well. With the chime turned off, the Nest Hello doorbell still
continues to send notifications to your phone.
Camera Settings: In the Nest app, you can configure the Nest
Hello doorbell camera to suit your needs. The settings include: Camera on/off,
Indoor chime on/off, Home/Away Assist, Schedule, Notifications, Visitor
Announcements, Quality and bandwidth, Night Vision, Camera sharing, Activity
history, Status light, Chime duration, Microphone, Spoken language, Wi-Fi
connection, Where (naming the camera), Delete History, and Remove camera.
Nest App: The Nest app lets you know who's at your front door.
You can view the video stream from the Nest Hello camera at any time 24/7. When
someone rings your doorbell, the Nest app
sends an alert to your phone or tablet. The app can also control other Nest products at the same time,
including the Next Learning Thermostat, Nest Secure alarm system, Nest Protect
smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, the Nest x Yale Lock, and the Nest
variety of security cameras. The app is compatible with Apple devices (iPhone,
iPad, iPod touch) running iOS 10.0 or later. It is also compatible with select
devices running Android (version varies with the device). The Nest application
for laptops and desktop computers is available for Windows 7 or later, Mac OS X
v10.9 or later, with the latest versions of Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome,
