Power adaptor

Community Member

I don’t have a existing doorbell chime. I know the battery on the nest doorbell only last around a month so is there a way to wire the power cable to the doorbell. The previous generation had a power adaptor which connects from a power outlet indoor to the doorbell which meant you don’t have to charge it every month. Does the previous generations power adaptor work with the new nest doorbell?  Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi, I have had mine for about a month, it was connected to a 6v chime transformer, and was working OK, but in the last week the battery was draining flat. I have "upgraded" my chime with built in transformer to an 8v version (Byron 776) and will report back in a while. I think if you keep I keep the setting sensible (video quality and clip length) then It might be OK.......
