Waiting on a 16v 30va transformer. Have a Nutone 5v 10va one now with a Nutone 16v Chime. I wired up the chime puck and mounted the doorbell. 2 gen. Left wires unhooked. Getting eager to finish install before transformer gets here. If I wire up the doorbell and proceed with install as if I have a higher voltage transformer, will there be any negative impact on the doorbell other than live video performance? And, when I get and install correct transformer will doorbell just start working fine with nothing else to reset etc. Thanks
From past experience when I first installed my Nest Hello doorbell under similar circumstances, there were no negative impacts on the doorbell. Plus you can still press the doorbell button and hear it ring inside.
Well I hooked up doorbell wires, remounted. The light started flashing Amber as expected. But, doorbell does not ring as it should per Google install information. Rang before I wired it up. There is obviously power to have the amber light flash. Is this possible sometimes with the low transformer still installed. Or, should the bell be ringing?
Thanks for reaching out. What country are you located in? You might want to check out this link on how to Check Nest doorbell compatibility.
I appreciate the help, MetalGlacier.
