The Nest Doorbell is the battery-powered video doorbell that works with any home. See what’s happening at your door from anywhere and get intelligent alerts about important activity, like when there’s a person, package, animal, or vehicle.* And because there are no wires, you can install it yourself. Nest Doorbell requires the Google Home app and a Google Account – it’s not compatible with the Nest app or the home.nest.com site.
Control with the Google Home app.
View live HD video, replay video recordings, talk to visitors, and more – all from the Google Home app. The Nest Doorbell (battery) requires a free Google Account and is not compatible with the Nest app or the Nest site.
Everything works together.
The Nest Doorbell works with other Nest products. Hear announcements on Nest Mini when someone is at the door. And Nest Hub will show you who’s there when someone rings the bell.
Go back in time.
If you miss a notification, go back over the last 3 hours with free event video history. If you want more, add Nest Aware Plus for up to 60 days of event video history.** The Nest Doorbell (battery) does not record 24/7 video history, even with the optional wired installation.
Get alerts that matter to you.
The Nest Doorbell lets you see what’s happening at your door and answer it from anywhere. It knows the difference between a person, package, vehicle, and animal, and alerts you when there’s activity, so there’s no guessing.*
Install it yourself.
Wire-free means installation is painless. You can put it at the vantage point that works best for your door.
See clearly in any light.
See key details in all kinds of light. HDR helps with bright, high-contrast sunlight, and night vision gives you a clear image even in low light and darkness.
Designed for any door.
The Nest Doorbell is battery powered and wire-free, so it works with any door, whether you live in a house or an apartment. You can install it yourself. And it comes in a range of colors to make any doorstep more stylish.
Wi-Fi problems? Not a problem.
If your Wi-Fi goes down or there’s a power outage, the Nest Doorbell will automatically record important events for up to one hour in its local memory.
Choose the areas that matter most.
Activity Zones let you define specific areas and get notified when something happens there. So you only get alerted about things that are important to you.
See who’s there, even when you're not.
A taller field of view and HDR let you see people clearly from head to toe, and packages on the ground. If you miss something, 3 hours of free event video history lets you go back and see what happened with the Google Home app.
Talk to who’s there, from anywhere.
Talk and listen to visitors through the built-in speaker and microphone. Tell someone you’ll be right there, or let a delivery person know where to leave the package.*
Protects your privacy.
The Nest Doorbell uses encrypted video, two-step verification, and enhanced security through your Google Account to help protect your privacy. And a green LED light lets you know when the camera is processing or streaming video.
Battery life will depend on factors including activity, temperature, and camera settings that you select. You can extend the battery life of your camera by adjusting video quality, length of video clips, time between recorded events, and using activity zones to monitor specific areas.
*Some features, including mobile notifications, remote control, video streaming, and video recording, require working internet and Wi-Fi.

A:AnswerLike any battery device that depends on its frequency of use as well as temperature. Batteries tend to not last as long when its very cold outside.
Typically around a month for average use is a statement in the literature however it says you may see a longer or shorter time between charges based on you use.
We wired this one to an old transformer powered mechanical doorbell in the house so it has constant power.
But another brand we had that was battery only lasted about 4-5 months between charges due to low use.

A:AnswerNest Doorbell (Battery) comes with all the tools you need to secure it in place. Anyone will have a hard time pulling Nest Doobell (Battery) out from its base plate without damaging your wall since it can only be removed using a release tool that also comes in the box.
A:AnswerYou don’t need to delete and reinstall it again as a wired doorbell. If you don’t want to worry about charging your doorbell, you can install it using the doorbell system wires for your home. If your home doesn’t have a doorbell system, you can use an indoor power adapter to install your doorbell instead. Also, your Google Assistant-enabled devices such as Google speakers and displays, can announce when a visitor rings your Google Nest doorbell whether your Nest Doorbell is wired or battery powered. If you want to get notified when someone rings your doorbell when you’re home, connect a Google speaker or display and set up visitor announcements. You’ll only get visitor announcements on your speakers and displays if they are set up in the same home as your doorbell in the Home app.
