You don't mean the Doorbird listed on Amazon for $1,444, right?   :o
Not kidding: https://www.amazon.com/DoorBird-Video-Doorbell-Stainless-Steel/dp/B01N9ITZMR

Oh, they also have one listed for $599 and the cheapest at $378.   All to rich for me.   Even the Nest Hello is a bit pricey (Preorder @$229 with a Google Mini thrown in).

I also really like the looks and features of the Skybell Slimline, but have to be figure out how it could best be integrated into Vera without getting the model locked into alarm.com's app.   Just thinking that the Works with Nest and the Hello doorbell might be the better way to go for long term support.

Anyway, the main point of my post was to warn others researching about Ring integration with Vera that they won't be able to find the Wink Control plugin on the Vera app list as it was withdrawn.

Hi

So how are people integrating their Ring doorbell/camera with Vera?

I had been using in isolation via Home Assistant and that seemed to work well -> https://home-assistant.io/components/sensor.ring/

But with people reverse engineering things like this - http://www.kidder.io/2017/07/04/ring-doorbell-api/

I?m curious if anyone has made progress (especially if the Wink plugin that was acting as a Bridge has not been removed)

Also interested in doorbell solutions.  Honestly I just want the Aeotec doorbell but it's not available in Australia :( . I already have a Ubiquiti camera installed above the door so I should be able to tap into that for a feed.

Failing that I guess a Ring, but they don't sound all that awesome really.

According to Sorin, both Ring and Skybell are on the roadmap for Vera integration...

Hello Folks.

Skybell is on the roadmap for the second half of 2018. Same as Ring.

I had been looking into the upcoming Nest Hello doorbell and the official Vera Works with Nest (WWN) plugin, but it appears to only be supporting the Nest thermostat and Nest Protects at this point.   No telling when it will support the Hello doorbell.   There has been no WWN update/comments from Vera posted since September '17.

Wait or you can get a doorbird now and get Vera Integration.

Any updates on Nest Hello support? I originally bought a Ring, but since I am in the google home/vera camp and suspect ring will only play well with Amazon moving forward, I plan to sell and buy a Nest Hello.

Nah,  just check the WNN (Works With Nest) forum...  Currently the plugin only supports the Nest thermostat and Protect, but nothing has been mentioned about the Nest Hello or any other Nest products that I've seen.

Slightly more encouraging is this reply regarding Ring and Skybell support  from VC/Sorin: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,52428.msg336056.html#msg336056 - but "2nd half of 2018" is still a long wait and that's an entirely optimistic projection.

Tom

In your post you mentioned using a Hue Bridge.
What is that?
Can you share some more info?
Thanks.
