Google owned Nest Labs has announced that the Nest Hello video doorbell will be available to buy in Europe from today (May 31st, 2018)
Following the lead of Ring with its video doorbell, Nest Hello notifies you when a guest is at the door via your mobile phone, even when you are not at home. And if you’re not available, a list of pre-recorded responses makes it easy to quickly and effortlessly answer visitors with one tap from the app.
Nest’s video doorbell can also let you know there’s someone at your door on your Google Assistant-enabled speaker. And with a Nest Aware subscription, you can get personalised alerts based on who is at the door, such as whether it’s a family member or the next-door neighbour. This is thanks to Familiar Face alert’s face recognition technology. With a subscription you also get continuous cloud video storage to record whoever comes to the door.Says Lionel Guicherd-Callin, head of EMEA Product Marketing for Nest Labs:
“Your front door is where home begins. It’s the entryway to special moments with family and friends – but also the most common way burglars enter your home so we’ve designed a doorbell experience that makes your front door more safe and secure, yet still feels friendly.”
“You can truly connect with your guests at the door from anywhere. Never miss a package. And have added security and peace of mind when it’s needed.”
Nest Hello is available to order today for £229 including VAT from www.nest.com/uk. It will also also be available from UK partners including John Lewis, Argos, Currys PC World starting mid-June.
It is also available with installation on Nest.com for £329 including VAT.
● An HD camera designed for your front door. With a 2K image sensor at a 4:3 aspect ratio, a 160° field of view and HD video, you can see your visitors head to toe when they ring the bell. High-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging lets you see key details, even in uneven light, while night vision powered by IR LEDs lets you see when it’s dark.
● Say hello even when you can’t. Have a natural conversation using HD Talk + Listen. Echo and ambient noise cancellation make sure you hear your guests clearly, even on noisy streets. And if you are not available to talk, choose from a list of pre-recorded responses.
● Smart and thoughtful. A light ring will show your guests the button. And Quiet Time lets you turn off your chime from the Nest app, while still receiving notifications on the Nest app. So you don’t wake up the baby or set off the dogs.
● Never miss a moment. With 24/7 video streaming, you can check what’s happening at he front door anytime from your smartphone, tablet or even your TV, or check the free 3- hour history using Sightline in the Nest app to quickly find snapshots of important moments. And with Person Alerts built-in, you’ll get a specific alert and snapshot when someone is at your door.
