I just purchased a Google Nest Doorbell battery and followed the setup for battery. If I wish to change to wired do I need to change to wired in Google setup.

If I do, what is the easiest way to change from battery to wired?
Do I need to remove the device and follow the setup process again or is there an easier way?

Hi Robert C.  Did you get this sorted out?  As soon as you connect the new Google Doorbell (battery) to wires to give it 24/7 power the camera automatically switches over.  There is nothing you need to do.
