The Nest Hello Video Doorbell lets you keep an eye on what’s happening outside your front door, and on any parcels that are left there for you, thanks to its brilliant set of smart features.
Available from Future Home Shop, this smart video doorbell is highly intelligent and can be controlled from your smartphone, tablet, Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Having your smart speakers alert you when you’re deep inside your house and there’s someone at the door is really quite something.
Still deciding whether to buy a Nest doorbell? Review its features here:
You can receive instant alerts direct to your smartphone or tablet via the free Nest app, so you’ll always know when someone is at your front door, regardless of whether you’re at work, on a train or even on holiday
It provides you with high-definition, quality video footage both day and night, thanks to in-built night vision technology, which helps to produce bright, crystal-clear images, regardless of the time
The Nest Hello Video Doorbell lets you benefit from a 160-degree field of view, meaning you can see whoever’s at the door from head to toe, as well as any parcels left on the ground. The ability to keep an eye on your deliveries offers a little extra security and greater peace of mind
You’ll get a three-hour event history, so you can review footage from the past few hours on those occasions when you need to see if you’ve missed anything
When you download the Nest app, you can also have a clear, two-way conversation with visitors or postal workers, or choose from a selection of pre-recorded responses available within the app
It’s compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home smart speakers, allowing you to enjoy a better-connected, smarter home
You’ll get highly secure privacy settings, thanks to 128-bit AES with TLS/SSL encryption to help with keeping your data protected
There’s also the option to record outside your home 24/7 when you take out a Nest Aware subscription (sold separately). This add-on also includes a 30-day video history and more intelligent alerts, with your smart doorbell letting you know when someone unfamiliar is detected nearby or when it picks up the sound of chatter or a dog barking. Nest Aware gives you the chance to create designated Activity Zones to concentrate on around your home too.
To use the Nest Hello Video Doorbell, you need:
A wired doorbell, Chime connector (included) and a 16V AC-24 V AC 8VA transformer
A decent Wi-Fi connection, with an upload speed of at least 2Mbps
A smartphone or tablet compatible with the free Nest app, as well as Bluetooth 4.0. Check if your device is suitable here
800-2,000Kbps of upload bandwidth to stream video from your smart doorbell. If there’s more motion in a scene, more bandwidth will be required
You can also choose to subscribe to Nest Aware, which will stream all of your video footage to the cloud, providing you with secure, offsite storage. Bear in mind that your Nest Hello Video Doorbell could use between 150 GB and 600 GB of upload bandwidth each month, depending on the video quality setting.

A Chime connector, meaning you’ll never miss a notification from your video doorbell
