Just like our other Nest cameras and doorbell, the new Nest Doorbell has smart features built right in. It can process what it sees on-device, giving you more relevant notifications and added privacy and security.
With the help of built-in machine learning, it can do things like tell the difference between people, packages, pets and vehicles and keep an eye on specific areas of your front porch using Activity Zones. With the “talk and listen” feature, you can also chat with visitors at the door from anywhere, or respond quickly with pre-recorded messages.
The new Nest Doorbell works with your existing chime, or you can connect it to a Nest speaker or display to simply alert you when your doorbell is pressed. With the optional Nest Aware subscription, this Nest Doorbell can even detect and notify you when it sees familiar or unfamiliar faces.
Our new wired doorbell is built to work easily with the Google Home app, where you can see and control all your cameras. Soon, we’ll release an update on home.google.com that lets you view all your Nest camera and doorbell feeds on the web.
And now, you can set up a Household Routine on the app to customize how your doorbell works. For example, when your doorbell is pressed, automatically turn on your porch lights from sunset to sunrise.
We’re also working on bringing the best of the Nest and Google Home apps together. Learn more about upcoming features and what to expect in the coming weeks.
Many smart home devices can look out of place. We’ve been purposeful about designing a doorbell that is simple, elegant and beautifully complements your home.
Right away, you’ll notice it has a smaller footprint than the battery-powered doorbell — it’s around 30% smaller — so it can easily fit within narrow door frames and tight spaces.
The new doorbell can fit in or stand out, with four colors — Snow, Linen, Ash and Ivy — designed to complement different architectural styles or nature by your entryway.
