Helios vs Nest Hello
#1
Hi all, I don't know whether to pay €1,200 and replace my 2N Helios Force which was recently fried by a lightning strike or just get a Nest Hello. Which would have the better CQC support. Thanks

Do either really provide any integration capabilities?

Hi Dean, 
I'm probably assuming too much. I believe there is a Nest Driver already available - but that may not support the Hello yet? 
I also read that Helios has an API now - "2N Helios SIP intercom system has an API now".
I was wondering if there was an opinion on which may be the better option - even if some of it is guess work given that both are not supported/implemented in drivers for CQC. Thanks, Enda

We do have a Nest Driver but I'm not aware that the Nest API exposes anything to do with the intercom so far. Mostly folks want probably want to see the video or something, but no one really provides that sort of integration for intercoms that I can think of.

I'll have to look at the Helios and see what that implies, and of course whether they are actually letting anyone other than a small group of other companies have access to it.
