SkyBell HD now Works with Nest!

Today, we are taking a major step forward in our aspirations to delight customers while making homes and neighborhoods safer. We are so excited to announce that SkyBell HD now works with Nest Cam – bringing users of both devices an unparalleled experience that makes home security and video monitoring easy and accessible for everyone.

Home Security Made Easy
We’re extremely proud that SkyBell HD is the first Wi-Fi video doorbell to work with a Nest product. By allowing these two award-winning products to work together, SkyBell and Nest are redefining what home security can mean in today’s connected world.

Activate Your Nest Cam in the SkyBell HD App
SkyBell users have mentioned a desire to activate a camera in their home while answering the door in their SkyBell app. If you have a Nest Cam, now you can! Through the Works with Nest Cam integration, SkyBell HD users will now be able to turn their Nest Cam on or off from within the SkyBell HD app, all while seeing and speaking to the person at their door.

Away from the house? We’ve got you covered!
One of the most powerful benefits of SkyBell is the ability to know who’s coming to your door while you’re away. We’ve taken this a step further by working with Nest Cam. Go about your day knowing that whenever your Nest Cam detects motion or sound while everyone is away, your SkyBell HD will automatically start recording live video of what’s happening at your front door.

SkyBell HD
SkyBell HD is our brand new version of the SkyBell Video Doorbell. This third generation device is the culmination of two years of innovation, customer feedback and real world use. Boasting a 1080p HD camera and full-color night vision, SkyBell HD sets a new bar for what a smart doorbell should be.

Built on the same concept of being able to see, hear and speak to the visitor at your door whether you’re home or away, SkyBell HD expands this offering to include: full HD video, 180 degree field of view, full color night vision, “Watch Live” on-demand video access, video recording and our famous “Silent Mode.” SkyBell HD also marks an exclusive new feature: real time temperature and humidity data from your front door!

SkyBell HD is available for a launch special of $199 for a limited time ($249 regular price) on SkyBell.com and coming to other retailers soon, in time for the holidays.
