Powering / Charging

Your device is designed to be wall-mounted. Install in accordance with local building and installation regulations, using a base plate, wall screws, and wall anchors suited for your wall type. If connecting Nest Doorbell to existing wiring, turn off power to the doorbell before installation and only use the wire connector provided as not doing so may cause fire, electric shock, injury, or damage to the device or other property. See g.co/nest/installdoorbell for additional wall-mount instructions. 

Be sure the charge cable and device are well ventilated when in use. Using a damaged charge cable or using it when moisture is present can cause fire, electric shock, injury, or damage to the device or other property. Do not expose your device to liquids, which can cause a short circuit and overheating. If the device gets wet, do not attempt to dry it using an external heat source. Do not charge the device when it is wet or in direct sunlight.
