Nest Comes Knocking Again With Smart Doorbell, Security System

SAN FRANCISCO – It’s been more than two years since Nest entered a new product category, but the smart home company is now coming off the sidelines.

On Wednesday, Nest, which is owned by Google‘s parent Alphabet, showed off two new devices during a press event in San Francisco.

The first is an internet-connected doorbell called Nest Hello, which has a camera, speaker and microphone. It lets you do things like speak to someone at your door through your phone, or turn your doorbell off if the baby is sleeping. When the sound is off, you’ll get an alert on your phone when someone’s at the door instead of a ring.  The smart doorbell is coming in the first quarter of 2018, but Nest didn’t give any pricing information.

Nest also debuted a security system called the Nest Secure. It has a keypad and motion sensor. You can tag in and out of your house with a small keychain called the Nest Tag. The starter pack will cost $500 and will be available in November.

The company also introduced a new outdoor version of the Nest Cam IQ security camera. And Nest said the indoor version of its Cam IQ will have Google Assistant, the search giant’s digital helper, built in.
