Today, I’ll be revisiting and give you an update on the Nest Hello. A few days ago, Nest announced in their forums that they have updated their Nest Hello software. If you have the Nest Hello, check on the settings and if you scroll down, on the technical info tab, you will see the software version and the latest one is 4090107.
If your doorbell is not updated yet, Nest recommends to update your WiFi settings through the Nest App to manually make the Nest Hello and the server communicate and should initiate the update which can be a few minutes and up to 24 hours.
So, what is new with the latest update. First thing is that the motion notification delay has improved. It is now less than 10 seconds…~ 8 secs. in my testing.
Cool off period with the Familiar Face feature off is around 5 minutes. This has been addressed though even before this latest update.
Sadly, the 2 Way talk recording still only records the audio in the doorbell side and not on the phone or the person on the other side of the conversation.
