Google Nest Hello Doorbell Camera

Community Member

My original doorbell has not worked for many many years and I would like to set-up this camera at the front driveway gate instead of my front door where the doorbell is inactive.  Can I still have this product installed under these conditions?

Google does have recommendations for where to place it but as long as you can mount it properly, connect it to power (if it's not battery operated) and Wi-Fi, then there's no reason you couldn't set it up at your driveway gate instead. If you're looking to use a chime with it, you would also need to check wiring connectivity for that too.
