Works with Google Home & Alexa
Ding dong! Back in the day, this sound meant having to get up from your sofa and seeing who is calling at your home (at the risk of opening the door to unwelcome guests!).
Well, with the Hey! Smart Video Doorbell, those days are gone.
The Hey! Smart Video Doorbell begins recording video the second its motion sensor is triggered (or when someone rings it). This live video feed can then be streamed via Google Chromecast or Echo Show in 1080P full HD no less!
Thanks to 2-way communication you can also talk to visitors and listen to their responses. So when that delivery driver finally turns up, you can tell him where to store your parcel until you get back…
It also features night vision and an IP54 waterproof rating, so it’ll function perfectly in even the most challenging of weather conditions.
Unlike other smart doorbells, the Hey! Smart Video Doorbell comes with an indoor chime which can be positioned anywhere inside your home to ensure you hear the door every time, no matter where you are.
The Smart Video Doorbell also comes with a one month free trial of cloud storage. After this, you can either pay a monthly subscription (starting at only £3.49 per month), or simply insert a memory card into the back of the device.
The expected battery life can vary depending on signal strength, amount of usage and device settings such as motion detection sensitivity.
As a general guide the doorbell battery life should last between 1-4 weeks after a full overnight charge.

Fantastic smart doorbell, camera is great and the fact it takes an SD card is brilliant. The video quality is also very good even at night. Integrates well with Alexa. Battery's last really well. Only niggle is the small bolt that holds it into cradle can be very fiddly.
The doorbell itself works well and is easy to set up and connect to the internet and Alexa. Unfortunately the screws are incredibly and the necessarily small making putting the batteries and SD card in very difficult also the Allen screw into attached to the wall bracket is equally small and difficult to install especially once the camera is in situ.
Having seen several video reviews of this and other Video Doorbells it was the Price, the fact it was battery powered and the plug in door chime that drew me to the Hey, Doorbell. Ordering was simple, delivery super fast and even for someone like me, who is totally inept at DIY, it was easy to install. Connecting it to the WiFi was straight forward and I immediately had it up and running on the Hey App on my phone. A few minutes after that I also had it linked to my 2nd Gen Echo Dot to announce someone was at the door. Overall it couldn't have been easier. The only issue I've had so far is that every so often I get a notification it's gone offline. Luckily I have a UniFi based WiFi system and controller so I can easily login to it from anywhere and force a reconnect of the doorbell which instantly resolves the problem. Not sure why this is happening and I've raised the issue with Hey to see what they say. Other than that I'm really pleased with the Doorbell and the App is simple to use as well.
Great quality smart doorbell, that came in pretty, high-quality packaging.
It works even better than I expected; it was easy to set up, charge and install.
10/10. Thank you!
Very easy to set up, thankfully. I've tried others without success. Reasonably priced, too.
