Out of the box, Nest Hello will capture three hours of snapshots from your front door and provide free person alerts. Nest Hello's app offers a head to toe view. Nest Hello features HD Talk and Listen so you can speak to whoever's outside. For those times when you're otherwise engaged, the Nest Hello app has a quick response feature, which plays a voice message. Nest touts that capability as a quick way to handle package deliveries without having to come to the door. A more clever addition to the app is a nap time feature that silences the door chime while still sending notifications to the phone.

The green LED will indicate that the device is powered on and the red LED will blink once every 40 seconds to indicate a proper operation. The USST allows for an early smoke detection during stratification for both fast and smouldering fires using the same sensor for both and, in order to avoid false alarms, the device will operate at a low sensitive level and, in case smoke is detected, it will signal the alarm; it also adjusts and maintains a constant alarm threshold, therefore minimizing the effect of ambient conditions and it features a regulated 5V power supply for the ion chamber. If smoke has been detected, the alarm will beep three times, pause for two seconds and then repeat, the green power LED will turn off and the red smoke LED will start blinking once every second if smoke is detected by another interconnected alarm, the red LED will not turn on. Furthermore, if rising CO levels have been detected, the alarm will beep four times, pause for 5 seconds and repeat, while the power LED will turn off and the red CO LED will blink in sync with the 4 beeps the CO LED will stay off if the source of the emergency is in another room detected by another interconnected alarm. Lastly, if there are any gas leaks detected, the alarm will beep once, pause for two seconds and repeat, while the Power Led will turn off and the blue GAS LED will blink in sync with the once every–two seconds beep if the gas leaks are detected by another interconnected alarm, the GAS LED will not turn on. As a side note, the alarm should be tested weekly to ensure that it is working properly. The app user interface allows you to can add the Roost battery which is the smart part of the alarm to the app by tapping Add new and selecting Smart battery, choosing the location of the device, connecting to the local WiFi network and starting the setup process which will guide you through preparing the battery by pulling the tab, locating the speaker on your phone, turning up the volume and let the phone and the battery ‘speak’ to each other to establish the connection.

First Alert is definitely one of the most experienced American company when it comes with developing safety products has gathered more than 50 years of experience, but, with the rapid development of the IoT products and the emergence of full fledged smart homes which get more and more complex over the years, First Alert had to adapt to the new market and create its own line of smart smoke and CO detectors to rival the popular Nest Protect.

But if you choose not to subscribe, you lose the facial recognition feature, continuous recording and video history, close ups, customizable activity zones, and the ability to upload clips and create time lapses online. You'll still be able to see the live view and talk over the two way speaker, get motion and people alerts just without familiar faces being named, see snapshots of events from the past 3 hours and be notified when someone rings the bell. Nest Aware starts at $5/month or $50/year to keep a five day video history, plus up to 3 hours of stored clips. Higher tiers provide up to 30 days of video history. PerformanceThe Nest Hello's camera has a resolution of 1600 x 1200, and covers 160 degrees of view. It uses a 4:3 aspect ratio, for a squarer picture as opposed to some cameras' 16:9 wide screen view. The idea is that you'll be able to see packages on the ground in front of your door; but my whole doormat was out of view, so packages left there usually were, too. I found the picture clear and sharp — better than that of the Ring cameras, and with a larger field of view than the August Smart Doorbell Pro. The night vision, which engages automatically, also beats the Ring's. Nest Hello uses HDR, which helps lighten shadowy areas while not blowing out bright areas. Sometimes the video looks a little artificial as a result, but the point is that you get a good look at everything in the frame, which is just what you'd want from a doorbell camera.
