How can I turn off the outdoor chime/theme and keep the indoor Chime (Wired)

Community Member

We live in a quiet neighbourhood with houses close to one another. As a matter of privacy, I would like to have guests ring my doorbell without my neighbours/street knowing I have guests by the loud outdoor chime it makes.

How do I turn off the sound outside on the doorbell and keep the chime that rings indoors working - like a traditional doorbell? 
I recall being able to turn this off and customise it as needed.






I don't know about the 2nd Gen Google Nest Doorbell, but our Google Nest Hello Doorbells have never had the ability to turn off the outdoor chime that sounds on the doorbell itself.

Hi TerryM200,

Thanks for posting here in the community. We appreciate your interest however, we don't have any news to share about applying this feature to the Nest Doorbell. We're always looking for ways to improve and we'll take it as feedback. I'd suggest you send feedback about your concern using this form to let the Google Engineering team know about your concern. While they won't respond directly back to you, this is the best way to let them know about this. Please let me know if you have other questions or concerns as I will be locking this after 24 hours. Feel free to start a new thread and we'll be happy to help.


I appreciate the help, MplsCustomer.
