I am interested in getting a nest doorbell, and already own some nest minis.
However, in our house, we have 2 separate Wi-Fi. 1 for the ground and first floor and then the 2nd
(ours) on the 2nd floor. Our nest mini speakers are connected to the 2nd Wi-Fi, but the nest doorbell would need to be connected to the 1st Wi-Fi as the signal will not be strong enough.
Is it possible to use them together in order for the Nest minis to be used as chimes for the doorbell even though they are not connected to the same network?
Sorry to hear you're experiencing this, as I can imagine it has been an inconvenience. I would love to look into this further for you. As user @kiltguy2112 stated, it would not work as you intended in this case, as the doorbell would need to be on the same connection as the mini that is providing the alert. If your smart speakers/displays are on different Wi-Fi routers, or connections, it would not most likely work the same way for you. Please let me know if you have further questions or concerns.
@PapaDom I'm dropping by to ensure that everything is covered here. Were you able to perform the steps suggested above? We'd be glad to hear from you — We'd like to make sure everything is working.
I appreciate the help, kiltguy2112 and Brad.
Just one quick final check in here since activity has slowed down. We'll be locking the thread in the next 24 hours, but if you still need help, I would be happy to keep it open. If there's more we can do, just let me know.
