This even worked with my first generation Chromecast, although it took some buffering as all video tends to do on a first gen Chromecast.

But it's also the closest my house has come to the McFly house in Back to the Future Part II, welcoming home every family member by name. The Nest Hello also works with the Nest X Yale smart lock, so that you can lock and unlock your door using your smartphone and assign codes to guests.

Once you’re notified, you’ll have to determine whether or not it’s a false alarm or if you should call emergency services. DIY home security systems are less expensive because most features and equipment are purchased upfront – such as SimpliSafe’s professional monitoring package is as low as $14. 99/mo.
