Video doorbells are a great way to monitor your front door and receive alerts on your phone when someone comes knocking. But if you want a video doorbell that you can also use with your Google Home, you really only have one good option.

Nest Hello ($230)

While several other video doorbells certainly work with the Google Home, the Nest Hello is really the only one that has full, true integration with Google’s smart speaker, thanks to Nest being a subsidiary of Google. So if you’re looking at buying a video doorbell and specifically want it to work well with your Google Home, the Nest Hello is the one to get.

One neat feature is having your Google Home announce when someone rings the doorbell, which can be great if you’re in areas of your home where you normally can’t hear the doorbell. However, what really makes the Nest Hello/Google Home integration shine is when you connect the doorbell to a Google Home Hub.

With the Home Hub’s built-in display, you can have your Nest Hello’s video feed automatically pop up on the screen whenever someone rings the doorbell, which is super convenient—it’s like a digital peephole that you can view right from your couch.

Aside from that, the Nest Hello is really one the best video doorbells, period. Nest offers a really great user interface within the app, and the doorbell itself is small enough that it’ll fit nicely anywhere you install it.
