My Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired) Is Bricked

The next day after publishing my Installing Nest Hello Doorbell To HDB BTO Doorbell post, my Nest Hello Doorbell decided to give up on me.

I received the Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired) on 7th September 2021, and on 9th September 2021, the first problem occurred. There is no ring light around the Nest Hello. I restart the Nest Hello by switching on and off the transformer plug, and it works great after that.

Installing Nest Hello Doorbell To HDB BTO Doorbell

Bought the Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired) from B&H Photo Video during that Labour Day sale.

The usual retail price is US$229 (S$308), and during the Labour Day sale, it dropped by US$50 to US$179 (S$241). Direct shipping to Singapore is an additional US$21.21 (S$29) via DHL. DHL shipping is swift, I placed an order on 2nd September 2021, and I got it 5 days later on 7th September 2021.

Logitech C920 Pro HD Webcam

Bought the Logitech C920 Pro HD Webcam during Lazada’s Online Tech Show for S$108.05. The usual retail price is S$149. During the flash sale, it was discounted to S$119. After deducting Lazada’s voucher of S$5 and the shop’s voucher of 5% off (S$5.95), I ended up with S$108.05.

The upgraded model to this is the Logitech C922 Pro Stream 1080p Webcam which was released back in 2016. Logitech C922 retails for S$199 on Lazada while on Hachi.tech, it retails for S$159 as they are having a promotion.

Arlo Essential Indoor Camera Review

Arlo launched their Arlo Essential Indoor Camera last month and it is currently retailing for S$199. Essentially (pun intended), this camera is the indoor version of the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera that I reviewed last October.

The major difference is Essential Indoor is wired, and Essential Spotlight is wireless. Essential Indoor doesn’t have a spotlight, and its night vision is black and white only.

Gutter Mount for Arlo Cameras

I decided to place my Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera in the kitchen since I already have a Nest Cam watching the outside corridor and my living room.

I bought an OEM Gutter Mount for Arlo Cameras from Shopee for S$12.09 with an additional S$1 for shipping to Singapore.
