      Beautiful and reliable.


    • Nice Product from Google

      Have it up and running for a week now. Everything works perfectly. Hasn't faced the tough winter yet so not sure if it can survive. But so far so good. It was a struggle to pick either the Nest or Ring doorbell. Both are similar on spec and have good comments from friends using either one. I think after all you need to decide to go for Google or Amazon, so pick your side. For me I have a Nest thermostat and that's the top reason I go for Hello, hoping a better integration. Installation is easy if you have some basic knowledge about electrical wiring. My original chime is a very standard one (16V) and the product comes with all the wires and tools you need. Video quality is very good. I didn't even set to "high", just keeping the default medium quality. Sensitivity is great. This becomes a bit annoying as every time a person or a car passing by, there will be an alert on the phone. Continuous cloud recording is one of the selling point and I think the subscription price is reasonable.


    • Nest Hello Review
      by

      from Edmonton, AB on November 23, 2018

      Got the Nest Hello mainly for security plus i liked how it looked. Have had it for a month now and have had no big problems. My thoughts on the Nest Hello: -Does not connect to 5 ghz Wi-Fi but 2.4 ghz works fine as it does have a longer range as compared to 5 ghz -Have had 2 disconnects over the past month but it lasted only about 20 min so i attributed it to my Wi-Fi going down for a little bit. When the doorbell is disconnected for 10 min+ you get an email stating that it disconnected as well as an image of what the camera last saw -Video quality is great, but i do have it set to the highest setting -Response time is good as well, have been able to have conversations with people at the door in real time with no issues. Note that i have a 300mbps download/upload internet plan -Subscription required for cloud storage after the 30 day free trial -Some people state that this doorbell will not work below -10 degrees C. Edmonton at this point has had a few days that has reached below that mark and it is still working without issue. After looking into it some more the -10 degree mark is talking about the internal temperature of the doorbell, not the temperature outside. Internal temp of the doorbell stays well above -10 degrees even when it's that cold or colder outside Overall i highly recommend the Nest doorbell, especially if you're gearing most of the smart devices in your home around Google brand devices.


    • Buy the Ring Doorbell Camera instead
      by

      from Edmonton, AB on November 1, 2018

      Extreme lag in notification was a well-documented concern that Nest has not addressed. I have no use for a doorbell camera that notifies me 15 seconds after an event occurred. The camera also goes off-line several times during the day and this is a major concern/


    • Canadian version does NOT support 5 GHz Wifi

      Please beware that unlike the US version, Canadian version does NOT support 5GHz Wifi.


    • Read This Before Purchasing
      by

      from Calgary, AB on October 13, 2018

      A video doorbell is a great idea, and I could use one but did the research before purchasing, which I hope will save anyone reading this time and money. Neither Nest nor Ring will say their doorbells will work below -10 Celsius. Unless you live on the West Coast of Canada, the average temperature from November to March is less than -10 C, especially at night. I contact NEST Customer support to confirm several conflicting customer posts about the ability of NEST to work below -10 C (many said it would and many said it would not). The NEST Customer Service person said not to buy it if it is less than -10 C. You really have to wonder why it is for sale in the Prairie Provinces???


    • Does not work below -3C in Calgary
      by

      from Calgary, AB on October 2, 2018

      Worked for about 20 minutes with Pro Install, then went offline. It would go offline at night or early morning. spoke with internet provider to verify signals were strong etc. Now it's snowing and -3C. Spoke with NEST Support and it only works to -10C. Not a good outdoor product for Canada in heat and cold.


    • so far so good

      I had the 1st gen ring, and it was garbage. Always disconnecting, too much lag, sending me notifications all the time that showed nothing. Perhaps the newer ring's are better. This has very little lag, better camera, better styling.


    • Keep Offline
      by

      from Markham, ON on July 22, 2018

      Work for 2 weeks, then it keep offline, then tried everything, cannot able to make it back up, but suddenly it will be back up. Good features only if it is working. Worst than Rings, which I have before.


    • Love the 4:3 ratio
      by

      from Toronto, ON on July 21, 2018

      I love the viewing ratio on this cam. For door cam it is good quality. But it doesnt feel like 1080p at full quality. Feel like at best 720p quality. All the face look pixalated when zoom in. For nest aware I don't like the 3 hours clips storage limits. And there is a lot of processing errors when u tried to create clips like timelapse. I like that you can use the camera by micro usb connection too. Looking at camera history it seem the camera turn itself off at night. It say camera was off during night time and at about 6am it is back on. I check the schedule and nothing is turn on. Maybe it turn off when no motion detected. Not sure. Love how it work with google home speakers. Very cool.
