Article Summary: 

This article compares two popular smart doorbells, Ring Pro and Nest Hello, and breaks down their advantages and disadvantages. The Nest Hello smart doorbell has more advanced features such as facial recognition, pre-recorded messages, and package delivery alerts, but most require a Nest Aware subscription. The Ring Pro smart doorbell is more stylish and comes with four interchangeable faceplates. Both doorbells are compatible with popular smart home ecosystems such as Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, but the Nest Hello works better with Google Assistant and has a built-in Thread radio. The Nest Hello has superior video quality with its layering of images with various exposures and the ability to show people from head to toe, while the Ring Pro offers a wider 16:9 aspect ratio. Nest also scores higher in Smart IQ evaluation, faster response time, and 24/7 video recording. Both doorbells require a hardwired setup, and cloud storage plans are necessary for storing old videos. Ring has had privacy issues, but homeowners can avoid these by following recommended security precautions. The article emphasizes that nothing beats a strong and sturdy exterior and recommends partnering with Clera Doors for your smart doorbell needs.
