Google’s Nest Doorbell lineup provides useful features and software that’s getting a whole lot better, but as colder temperatures start to arrive for many, it’s a good time to remember that the Nest Doorbell (battery) does not hold up very well in the cold.

The Nest Doorbell (battery) hates the cold.

When exposed to frigid temperatures, Nest Doorbell (battery) still works, but the device has been found to lose its charge more quickly when it starts to get cold.

Following mass confusion over why this was happening, Google clarified earlier this year that Nest Doorbell (battery) and the battery-powered Nest Cam can’t charge at temperatures between -4°F (-20°C) and 32°F (0°C).

While a Nest Cam (battery) will continue to be able to run off of a wired connection in the cold, Nest Doorbell (battery) cannot charge its battery in the cold and once that battery dies, it will stop working entirely until you warm it back up.

The new Nest Doorbell (wired) has all of the same features as the new battery model and for the same price but works just fine in cold temperatures with a minimum operating temperature of -4°F (-20°C) and no charging to worry about.

A traditional doorbell combined with a Nest Cam (battery) would be a good solution if you don’t have the choice of using a fully wired doorbell but can have a camera plugged in nearby.
