My wired in Nest Doorbell (Battery) keeps dying and it's just the beginning of the north dakota winter... Is there any fix for this? Are there options for "battery blankets" or some type of heater to keep the doorbell warm enough to charge?
Stupid that the wired in option for the doorbell still goes through the battery - it should have been made so the wires directly power the camera and there wouldn't be an issue.
The battery doorbell always runs off of the battery even when it is wired, and when it is wired it trickle-charges the battery, and the battery cannot charge at temperatures below freezing. Google Nest finally posted the following early this year after months of complaints (as on this thread: https://www.googlenestcommunity.com/t5/Cameras-and-Doorbells/Cold-weather-concerns-with-Nest-Doorbel...In January 2022 we bought an older Nest Hello and powered it with an OhmKat Power Adapter for the Nest Hello after reading the above posts.
Many customers on the earlier thread say the battery doorbell shouldn't even be sold in colder climates.
The battery CAMERA does NOT have this problem IF it is plugged in with the optional power cable, because the CAMERA is powered directly when wired. (We've had one for 14 months, through a Minnesota winter [not quite as bad as in North Dakota].)
