Description

Google Nest Hello video doorbell lets you know who’s there, so you’ll never miss a visitor or a parcel. It can tell the difference between a person, an animal or something else, and then alert you.


Using the app, you can hear your visitors loud and clear, and have a conversation. The camera captures a bigger picture, so you can see a person head to toe or a parcel on the ground in crystal-clear detail, day or night.


With a Google Nest Aware subscription, it can even tell you if it’s someone you know or a stranger. And because the Google Nest Hello video doorbell is wired, it streams 24/7, so you can check the live stream at any time.


  • Know who's at your door
  • HD talk and listen
  • HD video, day or night
  • 24/7 streaming
  • Visitor announcements when used with Google Home

Thanks. It's a dilemma with any purchase at the moment.
£168 and they still want £4 per month?
Are these better than the ring? Half the time live view doesn’t work on my ring so tempted to get rid for something else

I reckon the ring pro will go 149.99 like last time and they'll match that. Id rather the cheaper sub but have Google home etc so nest would fit in.

Worth it for the continuous recording, not just motion activated. Great quality and integrated into the while Google eco-system if you have Google/Near Home and hubs.

Needs hard-wiring with a transformer though which can be a hassle to initially setup.
There's also the subscription which is another £40 a year or so.
Best purchase i ever made, MUST BUY!
Hive camera is better tbh
£167 for a door bell????

I had ring doorbell 2 and changed to nest hello. Hands down nest hello is far better than the ring. Also if you have google home/mini/hub, nest hello work much better with them.
These are a bit of a pain to fit. You have to upgrade your transformer and do other things before it works properly.

Anyone paid to get these installed by a pro? I'd be interested to know how much they charge. I've already got a hardwired doorbell in a house built roughly in the mid 90's.

Pro will charge you approx £100- but if you have little DIY knowledge you can use a power adaptor. I've done it and took me an hour to fix it all.

Yeah, I saw them, but have no power sockets near the front door, and was hoping to use existing wiring, as it's already powered into the fuse box.
I might just pay the money or speak to a local sparky.

Aha. Remember the wire is 5m long and I have seen 6m wires too with the adaptor.
Also I found the DIY guide for existing wiring which might be helpful to you. Good Luck!

I believe that is a US guide. You need a transformer in the UK. It's not the easiest DIY, but it can be done.

Hi Rob,

I got the quote from one of the Nest-Pro installation team and they quoted me as follows:

The cost for fitting the Nest Hello is £89 + For the Nest Hello we will supply a compatible chime and transformer for £29 each + The labour cost for configuring the chime is £29 = £178. Higher than the actual product!
Don't waste your money on a pro install. I've written up a guide for you all!

Christ, that's unbelievable. I can't pay that, that makes it nearly a £400 doorbell! And I already have a doorbell..

That looks superb - going to give it a go, although am 100% novice at this. Literally never done anything like this before.

One question, step 3 - "Turned off the trip switch related to my bell from the circuit box.

Wired the mains power into the transformer and the the transformer and bell cable to the nest adaptor and chime."

Where do you take the mains power from? As far as I know it goes from the fuse box to the doorbell, but am probably wrong. Do you have to pull the wires out from somewhere?
Thanks, and sorry to be useless.

The power goes from the mains to the chime. So before you do anything find which fuse you need to turn off so the bell doesn't sound anymore. That's how you know you've isolated it.

More than happy to help.
Nest Aware is about to get much cheaper for those wanting multiple device support. £100 per year for 10 day history and continuous recording per home (multiple devices).
I live on a busy street with very little frontage before the pavement. Do these do any kind of alert if someone is approaching? If so, I'm a bit worried it will keep going off.

Are you planning to take up the subscription/recording option? (Minimum £40/yr).

If so you can set "zones". I.e. draw a line around the area representing the area you do want notifications from and switch off notifications outside that zone

I was planning on yes. I don't think the zones will help unless you can set a distance as if I drew a box where I would expect a person when they were at the door it would trigger with passers by too

Yeah, it won't. You can turn motion notifications off all together, so you'll only be notified if someone presses the bell.

I live in a new-build and my drives are pretty open onto the street. Literally have trucks and plant driving past non-stop all day. Can set the camera to just alert if people approach and it can differentiate a person from other motion

Then yes, it'll alert for that. You can select a particular area of the screen to be active though so you could draw the box down you path and only be alerted if people walk into that box

This is what you need, notifications only if someone presses the bell.

It will be always on regardless, so you can view live whenever you like, and if you have the sub it'll store recordings for at least days.

What's the distance from the door before it can see the floor (obviously this will change based on mounting height).
