What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nest Hello Ring Doorbell
  • So far our Nest Hello has been awesome. Zero complaints. It has worked flawlessly.
  • The nest video doorbell is AMAZING! The clarity and view of the camera is awesome.
  • The quality of the camera is excellent. The night vision works great.
  • The video quality and the shape are awesome. Love to lightning and the option to place the door bell diagonally, excellent thought
  • The video quality is fantastic! The doorbell has worked flawlessly since the install. I’ve recommended this to everyone.
Ring Video Doorbell 2
  • This made a video doorbell very appealing to us. After a ton of research we decided the Ring Video Doorbell 2 would be the best choice.
  • The install would have been easier if whoever installed the previous simple button had not broken off one of the wires.
  • The video isn't always as clear as I would like it, but it's not bad. I don't know if the problem is with the wifi speed, the camera or what, but faces can be blurry sometimes.
  • First, let me say that if you’re looking for a video doorbell, I assume it will do the trick, though the slow speed and lag time between ring and video connection makes it useless for anything except someone sitting and waiting at the door.
  • The video quality is good when it works, which is usually. Sometimes it just records black.

What customers say about "Features"
Nest Hello Ring Doorbell
  • The cover slides on easily and is self-explanatory based on the mic and speaker holes.
  • Looks neat with the black silicone skin. Just put the sleeve after you snap the nest.
  • Notifications of activity is live and not delayed. Thank you Nest for making me feel safe & secure from anywhere!
  • Excellent product. Easy to install and the app is very easy to use.
  • Easy to install, Clarity is amazing even night vision is great!
Ring Video Doorbell 2
  • The design of the product is sleek and attractive and the user interface of the app is very easy to learn and navigate.
  • This doorbell records for about 30 sec and is activated in one of three ways: by pressing the ring button, having motion, or pressing "live view" from your phone.
  • The motion sensor always activates before anyone can get close enough to push the doorbell. I can set the radius of sensing somewhere between 6 ft to 30 ft.
  • Motion sensitivity is controlled by distance and zones. It works perfectly with no false alarms.
  • When battery starts to go dead, the unit triggers random motion sensor chimes that are confusing and annoying
