Hey guys, did anybody come up with a good solution for hiding the awful peeling on the Nest doorbell? Google does not want to replace it when not under warranty so I am trying to work around this manufacturer defect. I was thinking buying a silicone cover but reviews mention that the device gets hot and also that it obstructs night vision sensors.
I bought one, but you have to be careful that it does not cover the aluminum back of the device. The one I have is from Amazon and works well. There are stickers you can get for it too which are probably better for the doorbell than a silicone case. The biggest problem I had with the doorbell is that the internal battery (the wired one does have a small battery) went bad and I had to replace it. It was a moderate challenge, and Google support frowns upon it, but it works now. When I had the cover off, I was thinking of using a headlight restoration kit on it, but the ring around the button is raised and it was weathered too.
The battery I bought is made by Cameron Sino. You can buy one from Amazon. Search for NC5100US battery. The model number is CS-NLH510SL. Don't get generic batteries for it. You also need to re-attach the front bezel with strong double sided tape. I cleaned up some of the old tape's residue and used a 3M VHB tape to stick the bezel back on.
