Nest will launch a new wired video doorbell in 2022, Vice President Rishi Chandra announced Thursday in a blog post.
The announcement comes shortly after the Google-owned smart home brand launched theand rebranded the Nest Hello — calling it the . The erstwhile Nest Hello launched three years ago, and while it was comparatively feature-rich at launch (sporting facial recognition, Google Assistant compatibility and smart notifications), it’s no longer the industry leader it once was.
The one perk it has over the more affordable Nest Doorbell (battery) is 24/7 video recording — a feature Chandra said will remain in the new device.
Chandra’s blog post did not share any further details about the device, though a quick rollout seems unlikely, as Nest still has yet to reveal hard release dates for two other home security devices —, both of which were announced, , during the summer.
