Nest Hello Review | Trusted Reviews


The smartest video doorbell, with continuous video recording for peace of mind, Nest Hello isn't just an intercom, it's a complete security system.

Fast response ; Continuous recording option ; Can silence internal chime ; Facial recognition

Installation a little tricky ; Few Quiet Time options

Excellent performance, facial detection and continuous video recording make the Nest Hello the ultimate video doorbell.

Nest Hello review: At last, a video doorbell to take on Ring


Hello is Nest's video doorbell and the first to offer facial recognition. It's expensive to buy and run, but it's got the best feature set going.

Excellent video and image quality ; Facial recognition works well ; Google Assistant speaker feature is useful ; Integration with Google Smart Displays is great ; Strong feature set including two-way communication and quiet time

Expensive purchase with installation ; Wired install will be hassle for some ; Nest Aware subscription required for best features adds yet more expense

The Nest Hello video doorbell is a fantastic device. It offers a lovely, premium design that is more appealing than its competitors and it brings with it a great feature set as well as excellent image and video quality.

Nest Hello review


The smart doorbell that Lionel Ritchie's been looking for...

Design is stylish and understated ; Facial recognition offers added benefits ; Nest products work in tandem

Hardwiring is a disruptive nuisance ; Professional installation is a costly addition ; Works with Google Assistant only

Say Hello to the best-looking smart doorbell of the bunch, packing plenty of security features that not only talk a good game but actually work

Nest Hello review


A top-notch smart doorbell

Easy-to-use app ; Great motion tracking & HD video ; Useful face recognition

Has to be wired in at extra cost ; Subscription required for full features ; Good Wi-Fi needed for best quality

The Nest Hello is a good-looking, easy to use, featured-packed smart doorbell that doubles as an excellent security camera. Just be aware that you'll need a professional to install it. The Nest Hello isn't the cheapest smart doorbell on the market, but...

Nest Hello review: A great video doorbell but it's pricey


Brilliant but expensive, the Nest Hello is the cleverest video doorbell around

Crisp video and clear audio ; Mains powered ; Face, motion and sound event triggers

Expensive compared with rivals ; Complicated to install ; Subscriptions are pricey

All these factors mean that, while brilliant, the Nest Hello isn’t for everyone. It’s replete with clever and convenient features, and a step ahead of the Ring Video Doorbell 2 in terms of features, but overall I’d say the Ring just edges it.

The choice of smart doorbells isn't huge, but Nest's Hello has arrived in the UK and it's impressive. Here's our review.

Nest Hello review: A premium doorbell for the paranoid homeowner


Nest's first video doorbell doubles as a security camera. The HDR video looks great, and the 4:3 aspect ratio combined with a 160-degree field-of-view means you can get a full look at your guest before opening the door. We recommend getting the Nest...

Bright and sharp HDR video ; Video view has 4:3 aspect ratio so you can see visitors from head to toe ; Optional continuous 24/7 live recording and facial recognition ; Integrates well with other Google and Nest products

Nest Aware subscription needed for the best features ; Installation requires working on your home wiring

Nest Hello video doorbell review


Compact, well-built hardware ; Straightforward installation guidance ; Beautifully clear day/night video with minimal lag ; Smart facial recognition and Google Assistant integration ; Instant caller notifications, two-way talk and canned responses

Some features locked without Nest Aware subscription ; Doorbell wiring terminals cause frustration

While it’s taken some time for Nest Hello to reach the market, it’s another strong showing from Google’s smart home division that combines high-quality, high-performance hardware with intelligent features. The device features a simple user experience...

CNET's favorite doorbell normally sells for $229. Plus: sweet deals on Adobe software and iTunes gift cards.

Nest Hello


The Nest Hello video doorbell not only lets you know when somebody is at your door, it uses face recognition to tell you exactly who it is.

Sleek design. Face recognition. Motion and sound detection. Sharp HD video. Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Setup requires working with electrical wiring. Must have existing chime box. Need Nest Aware subscription for many features.

The Nest Hello is a solid choice for a smart video doorbell, especially if you're already invested in the Nest smart home platform. It earns high marks for its ability to identify people using face recognition technology, as well as its sharp HD video...
