Nest Hello takes all of the familiarity of a doorbell and combines it with all the great technology of a s cam. It is the product that our customers have been asking us most about. In fact it is our number one most requested product. Let me show it to you. [BLANK_AUDIO] Nest Hello is small. But it is powerful, it's packed with technology it has all the things that you should expect camera, microphone, speaker, LEDs, a button. But the real game changer in this product, is that everything in this device was designed specifically to create a great experience at your front door. We have a huge number of our customers today that are using Nest cams pointed at their entryway. So we understand the challenges with having a camera in that location. All of this means, is that when someone comes to my door, they're going to get a clear picture, not a warped, fish eye view. But what happens if the person doesn't ring the bell? What if you get one of those same day deliveries, that shows up at 11:59 PM? And the delivery guy tosses the package on your doorstep, and it sits there overnight, and maybe if you're lucky it's still there in the morning. Well, we have taken this amazing camera, and we've added the intelligence. From this cam IQ. This is the first video doorbell that can do both person detection and facial recognition. It's great like, if you're in a meeting and that package you've been waiting for all week, you can, you obviously can get a notification that it's being delivered, but you can't be disturbed You can just kinda discreetly tap on your Quick Response and it'll tell the driver what to do. And for those times that you do have time to talk, Nest Hello comes with full duplex audio with HD Talk & Listen, and echo and noise cancellation. So you're always gonna have a crystal clear conversation. For those times when you might not have your phone and you miss something, Sightline allows you to go back into the app and scan through literally days worth of footage in just seconds. So you can easily find the clip that you're looking for. [BLANK_AUDIO] But this may be my favorite feature about Nest Hello. So when I work late, which is often, and my kids forget to turn on the porch light for me, which is always, Nest Hello lights up the doorstep to welcome me home. And that's just kind of awesome. Nest Hello, coming to a door near you in Q1 of 2018.
