Cheapest price for this doorbell so far?

I would have jumped on this if I didn't already buy the Ring Pro from Costco a few weeks back.

£24 a month jeez I didn’t know it was that muxh


It's not - that's only if you need to store an entire month's worth of video. Most people will only need to check the past few days.

Storing 5 days is £4/month.

It'd be nice if posters wouldn't try and make their arguments with deceptive information.

I haven't bought one of these yet, but it looks like the Nest offers superior video quality, while the Ring is cheaper and easier to self-install. I would opt for the Nest.

Why would you want to answer the doorbell if you're not there?

Had mine for nearly a year now - no attempts to steal it ;-) and its sturdy you won't be able to steal it easily. Set up a routine too if there's movement outside your door say midnight to 8am then turn on the house lights, etc. that will scare away someone trying to steal it.

Nest Aware is £24pm for 30 days video storage. Ring £25 for the year?!

I know but (corect me if i'm worng) if you want to look at a video more than 3 hours old you have to pay for online storage (as you do with RIng)
brilliant find - thanks so much. I know these are more of a headache to install - expect i'll end up bypassing my existing chime and living without it... and I know the subscription is more expensive... but they look a lot nicer than the Ring Pro!

^ This guy hasn't tried both.

Ring/Ring Pro sucks.
Inferior video, inferior sound, inferior design, inferior app, inferior features...even the design of the doorbell itself is some crappy plasticky 80s reject on the Ring.

I think there are pros and cons with both Ring Pro and the Nest Hello and it really depends on your requirements.
The Ring product range is growing rapidly (at least it is in the US). I like the siren function with their cameras and also the security kit (hopefully this gets a release date for the UK soon). The subscription is cheaper for single and multiple cameras. But it doesn't record 24/7 and only records when there are motion.
Nest Hello records 24/7 is probably the best feature it has going for it. Also it has facial recognition and you can add people to the saved faces list. Subscription is a bit pricey. But the recent Google Nest announcement about their integration (or lack of) with other smart products going forward is a concern.

I found it a difficult choice between the 2.

You can do that in the app
lm on the fence with these wifi cameras, much rather have a hard wired ring elite but they dont do a surface mounted version and its bloody expensive. I wish they would bring out more Poe versions.
£24 a month jeez I didn’t know it was that muxh
I was tempted but the subscription puts me off.
To be fair the subs have tiers so its....
£4 ppm for 5 days of 24/7
£8 ppm for 10 days of 24/7
£24 ppm for 30 days of 24/7

5 days is plenty given that you can permanently download and save the clips it records over those 5 days. £4 a month, or £40 a year, is not too bad at all in my opinion for that option.

Plus, it is far superior to the ring 2.

Ring video quality inferior compared to the Nest Hello. I have the Nest device and really like the continuous recording as well as announcements (through google home mini) of who is at the door. Looks better than the Ring too. I like the illuminated ring light that appears when it detects movement but also guides a visitor to where the door bell button is located.

Great price!
If I have a ring Pro installed, is it easy to replace with the nest or will I still require an installation? I'm capable of taking ring off and reconnecting 2 wires but that's about my limit!

The poster was comparing like with like. Which, surely, is the honest way to go about it?
been waiting for a deal on the nest hello and at this price it is perfect apparently you can configure the google mini to work as a bell or even have your google home to bell or say someone is at the door.
I think 5 days subscription is enough to be fair and the plus is that it is constantly recording!
the install is going to be fun
Beware that these are a bit of a pain to install, there are a few options to get the right voltages and doorbell chime, I followed a guide and modified a chime housing so there was a transformer inside it rather than running more wires and adding to my fuseboard.

Once up and running though they are really good. The video quality is excellent, 24/7 recording so you can use it as CCTV. I pay for 5 days as can't think why I would need to go back any further (maybe if I was away on holiday) and find that to be decent value. The design is excellent, original Ring doorbells are crazy big but I assume they have made them more attractive now. I do find that the alerts on the app can be slow but this may be more to do with the iOS app, for some reason a lot of people knock at my door so I don't get to test it all the time but I do get notifications when someone is in the zone that I set in the app so I am aware when people are at my door even if they don't ring the bell.

Yes you can use a Google mini as a doorbell and it can announce known faces too. I have Echos around my house but looks like I will have to switch to Google soon. Don't like the fact Works with Nest is being replaced but I have the doorbell and outdoor IQ cam so stuck with it for now.

To add to this I bought v1 and live in a terrace house and got alerts from buses, Lories, groups of people and the doorbell told me different settings to them (not in sync) ring told me I was expecting too much from the doorbell if I don’t want 50 false alerts a day. Never again

It's expensive and not something I'd be prepared to pay for (I'm waiting for the Netamo door bell which has local storage) but don't like people stating half the info as fact as it doesn't help people make informed decisions
I paid £130 from CeX and was lucky enough to get a brand new one. I got a local Nest Pro installer to install it for me and cost £95 but that's mainly because I didn't have a wired doorbell before. Highly recommend these - it's all very well Ring having motion detection, but sometimes the cameras miss something (or someone), so having 24/7 continuous recording is essential.

Don't need a chime.
Disable it in the app job sorted.
Use a Google home mini as the announcer/chime.

Can also use a Google home hub to automatically pop up with the video of the doorbell when it it rings.

Hi mate. I’m after doing the same. Any chance you could share what you bought to do the conversion?
I have a working doorbell with a chime at the bottom of the stairs.
Looks cool! Is the video quality the same as shown in the product page picture?
Just waiting for Hive to make one.... Which is likely to be in 2025 and will be just as bad as their new TRVs...

Hi mate, this is how I did it, I used the same parts:
instructables.com/id/…rm/
Bear in mind you'll need a bell transformer that's 12-24V AC and can supply 8VA at the bell push terminals. List of compatible transformers & chimes here. Most of the transformers listed are modules that need to be fitted to the DIN rails of a Consumer Unit which is a bit of a pain. If anyone has a link to a decent standalone wired-in transformer I would be very grateful!

While the Nest Hello is good it's not perfect and there are certainly things that the Ring Pro does better.

I'm not saying one is better than the other, they both have their quirks.


Ring Pro is better for :

Included hardware (comes with a Ring Chime and 24VAC transformer)
Subscription costs (30 days of recordings cost £24.99 annually. Nest hello is 5 days of recordings cost £40 Annually)
Free replacement if stolen. Ring will replace your doorbell if it’s stolen (once) Nest don’t offer this in the UK.
Two way communication recordings playback (Ring records the whole two way conversation. Nest Hello only records & plays back the person at the door)
App Alert tones (Choice of 23 different alerts for Rings and Motions. Nest Hello has the Tri Tone alert only meaning it sounds like any generic notification)
Cool down period. (The time between new alert notifications is shorter than the Nest hello. Nest Hello will of course still record that information but you may not get notified of it)


Nest Hello is better for:

Better image quality (Nest is 1600 x 1200 HDR vs Ring Pro at 1920 x 1080)
24/7 recording (Ring Pro only records 60 second clips but if you answer or look at live view there is no limit)
face recognition (Ring Pro can't do this)
Time-lapse feature (Ring Pro can't do this)

The thing people can't seem to agree on is notification delays. Both camps complain of delays whereas some don't have any delay at all. My advice is do some research and make up your own mind with this one.

This works, but there can sometimes be a delay in the announcement. Also if the internet goes out, you'll never know someone is at the door but the doorbell will light up still
Hi all, I consider myself somewhat of a smart doorbell buff considering many years ago I was an early backer of a small company from the states called doorbot (who went on to become ring). I have owned a doorbot, ring v1 and ring V2 and then rather than opt for the ring pro I went for the nest hello and got one as soon as they came out in USA. The nest is just much better, imo, everything works faultlessly. No drops, no issues. Video quality is perfect. I love how it announces "the postman is at the door" through Google home. I think I pay 75$ a year for 24/7 5 day video recording. Getting a transformer was tricky but I think these are much more easily available now. All in all, highly recommended and this is a great price

It works as a cctv and you can also give instractions to postman where to hide the packages they are delivering
