Know who’s knocking – Nest Hello
Nest introduces Nest Hello, the doorbell you have been waiting for!
Nest Hello lets you know who’s there, so you’ll never miss a thing. It replaces your existing wired doorbell, and delivers HD video and bright, crisp images, even at night. It’s designed to show you everything on your doorstep – people head to toe or parcels on the ground. And with 24/7 streaming, you can check in at any time. Available now from Rexel branches of Kellihers Electrical and CT Electric. Quote product code: 7004045
What happens when someone rings the doorbell?
When you have a visitor, the large button on Nest Hello will light up as they approach. All the visitor needs to do is press the button to ring the chime inside your home, just like a traditional doorbell.
But unlike a traditional doorbell, the camera inside Nest Hello will be streaming video 24/7, so you can watch the visitor approaching the door, ringing the doorbell, and leaving if you’re not home. In addition, Nest Hello will send a notification to your phone. If you’re sharing access to your Nest home using Family Accounts, each person can set their own preferences for getting notifications from Nest Hello.
And if someone walks up to your door without ringing the doorbell, you can still get a notification on your phone so you’ll know they stopped by.
How can I respond to a Nest Hello Notification?
The notification on your phone will either show you a still snapshot of who’s at your door, or, if you subscribe to Nest Aware, you’ll see live video from your camera.
From there, you can:
- Select a Quick Response – like “Thanks, you can just leave it” and Nest Hello will speak the pre-recorded message to your visitor. This is a great option if you’re in a meeting or otherwise can’t talk to the visitor directly.
- Use HD Talk & Listen – to have a live conversation with the visitor from your phone.
- Ignore the visitor – if you’re not interested in engaging with them. Your doorbell won’t give any indication of whether or not you’re home. You can watch live video from your phone so you’ll know if anything else happens while the visitor is at your door.
No matter which option you choose, the visit will be marked on Nest Hello’s Sightline in the Nest app. If you subscribe to Nest Aware, you can also go back and review footage before or after the activity to see what happened.
Also available are Nest Thermostats, Nest Protect (Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms) and Nest Indoor and Outdoor cameras.
