The best covers and wall plates for your Nest Hello doorbell

The Nest Hello is your window to the outside (you know, aside from the actual windows on your home), and that means it’s outside — all the time. It’s a good idea to protect it or, at the very least, cover it so that it’s not getting weather-worn and scuffed. These are the best covers and wall plates for your video doorbell.

Jazz it up

Elago Nest Hello case

Staff favorite


These silicone cases are UV-resistant and come in six colors to add a bit of pizzazz to an otherwise boring-looking device. Elago’s cases will protect your doorbell from the elements, and it won’t block the camera, microphone, or any other necessary components.

$9 at Amazon

On a pedestal

Elago wall plate


Elago’s wall plates are a great backdrop to your Nest Hello. They come in four colors and are UV-resistant, double-coated for extra weather resistance, and they help to cover up any marks or holes behind your Nest Hello.

Get whacky

Mount up

Go go camo

Ahastyle silicone cover

Add some tilt

Koroao wall mount


If the only place you can put your Nest Hello is less than ideal or you want tilt functionality, this is the wall mount you want. It helps to prominently display your doorbell, having it sit out from the wall, with the ability to turn 35 degrees left and right. For a better field of view, grab this mount.

Amazon’s choice

Fintie silicone case


Fintie makes excellent silicone cases, for both phones and the Nest Hello. This cover is durable, has all the proper cutouts for the microphone and camera, and a little baseball-cap-style brim that should help to keep rain off the camera lens. Five colors are available.

$10 at Amazon

Bottom line

The Nest Hello is by no means ugly, but covering it up is no harm either. Elago’s cases are the best option on this list because they offer durable protection from the elements, come in some lovely colors, and are rather inexpensive. Elago’s covers are also well-rated, and their products, in general, are well-rated all over Amazon, which indicates that its products are high-quality and well-liked.

If you want a better field of you or at least more viewing options, the Koroao wall mount if your best option. That 35 degrees makes all the difference if you don’t have an optimal spot to place your doorbell. This mount also installs fairly easily, and it has enough space to make wire placement hassle-free.

Slickwraps, on the other hand, won’t be as protective (they’ll only stave off scratches and scuffs), but there are so many to choose from, and they just look rad as hell.
