I highly recommend this. Remember that you need a doorbell power supply of 16-24V (Ring Pro is the same). Most U.K. doorbells run on 8V.

Alternatively you can buy a plug in mains transformer if you don’t currently have a doorbell. I bought a Ring transformer for my Nest Hello for £25 from the Ring website. In my opinion you should avoid the battery powered doorbells as the power saving mechanisms can introduce delays to notifications. You soon realise that the average Amazon delivery driver only waits a few seconds before leaving!

Also note that to get the most out of this you really need to pay the subscription cost of £4 per month. Note that the pricing structure changes in a few months. The subscription brings about people based motion alerts. This is really really good. I get notified every time a person walks in my driveway but not when cats / fixes / headlights pass by.

Nest subscription is a bit different to the equivalent Ring version in that it records constantly and keeps 5 days worth recordings. Ring operates on a an ‘event recording’ set up. That means there is no permanent recording that you can scroll through.

The big issue with all these WiFi doorbells is the quality of your broadband / WiFi. I read that many people struggle with picture quality etc. Make sure your WiFi is strong enough near your front door.

Notification lag is another complaint with these type doorbells. For me my phone notifies me of the doorbell in around 4 seconds. Motion alerts in around 10 seconds.

If you go for the Nest then you should get yourself a Google (Nest) home hub. It’s like an echo show. You can pick them up new on eBay / gumtree for around £50. They enable you to view the front door when the bell is pressed....the lag is around 1 second for me so works really well. ( Note the Ring + Echo Show combination doesn’t auto show front door when the bell is pushed...another delay is introduced when you have to ask for the door to be displayed after the bell is heard).

This makes me want to do something about it. I will think about a solution, possible two cross bars over the nest and fixed to the wall. It might work. Obviously, this would only slow down a bit somebody that wants to steal it.

Do Nest provide a replacement if this is the case? I know Ring do if there's a police report filed.

No, unfortunately Nest do not replace these when stolen...at least not in the UK. I believe they do in the US.
Great price drop on this, thanks OP!
Wouldn't stealing a camera that's recording you stealing it be a bit daft?

It's a shame, I ended up buying a Chinese knockoff. Other option would be Ring as they replace for free if you file a police report.

Wouldn't it make sense for these to have unique IDs in the chips so if it was ever reported stolen and used it would report it's location when hooked to a nest to which authorities could be alerted and connections made? Ie: return it to owner, ask buyer of stolen goods where it was from etc?

Seems a no-brainer to me but perhaps I'm missing something, like a law that prevents criminals' innate human right not to be caught out. Any thoughts?

Interesting point and if it would have an unique identifier (like IMEI for a phone) then that might work. It might already have one but I'm not sure if Google thought about this case.
But what if they steal it and just throw it away? I still think preventing them from stealing it might be better if we find a way.

Why would anyone put on a balaclava risking jail to steal something to throw it away? That's similar to just throwing stones at windows.. nothing you can do about that.

Vast majority of tech theft is to sell, if not use. If sellers of stolen goods are located via authorities questioning end users of reported stolen goods it creates a deterrent.


Edit

I see your point about creating physical barrier to theft in the short term though. Like inset into the wall with a steal frame bolted around.. although perhaps awkward when trying not to limit visual range functionality with such a method.. some kind of bullet proof glass hemisphere lol..

All you'd need is a metal strap to go around the device. So the thing that is actually screwed into the wall also held onto the nest hello. But looking around no one seems to have don't it yet.

Thank you for this most informative post, I found it very useful, especially the power supply part which has been confusing me.

Would you be able to tell me if the video feed will automatically come up on 2 nest home hubs simultaneously? I have one upstairs and one downstairs and that's the only question that's now holding me back hitting buy. Thank you so much.

You’re very welcome.

I only have 1 nest home hub connected but my understanding is that it will work with multiple screens / hubs simultaneously.

I thoroughly recommend this device and love the fact that the notifications can be set to only ping me when a person walks onto my drive. I have other security cameras that end up hassling me every time a tree blows in the wind to the point that I have to switch off the notifications.

For me the security camera part of this device has ultimately become more important than the bell strangely.

I have had this unit for around 3 or 4 weeks now. I’m quite impressed with it to be honest. I particularly like the low light picture quality. I have switched off the night mode (IR black & white) meaning that I can get a decent colour picture with the street lights / porch lamp that I have. Again, far superior to the security cameras that I currently have.

The only issue I have had was when the Google / nest camera servers went down earlier this week meaning no access for around 24 hours. I suspect this was a one off but time will tell.

Yes. Google will be refunding the subscription cost this month for all.
