How To Reset Nest Doorbell

Nest is a well respected brand in the smart home automation industry. They offer various high-quality smart home devices, such as security cameras, thermostats, and doorbells, at an affordable price. Like any other smart device, Nest doorbells can sometimes experience problems that require a reset to fix the issue. 

To reset the Nest doorbell, press and hold the reset button for about 5 seconds. This will cause the doorbell to restart, turning the status light on the device to a solid and steady white.

The reset button is located inside a small pin hole found on the back of the battery-powered Nest doorbell. This hole can be found under the USB port on the back of the device. You will need a reset pin or paper clip in order to access the button.

If the Nest doorbell is hardwired, you will need to first remove the doorbell from its base in order to access the reset button. Find the small hole located at the bottom of the device and insert the release tool into that hole. Once it has been removed from the base, you can access the reset button on the back of the device. Hold the reset button down for about 10 seconds. This will cause the doorbell to restart.

If the Nest doorbell is connected to its power adapter, you can reset the device by disconnecting it from the electrical outlet. Wait for about 10 seconds before plugging the device back into the outlet. The doorbell will restart.

How To Factory Reset Nest Doorbell

Factory resetting a Nest doorbell restores the device back to its “out of the box” state. This can be just what the doorbell needs to get rid of glitches and small problems. Keep in mind, however, that factory resetting the Nest doorbell will remove any customization or settings that you have previously made to the device. 

You can factory reset a Nest doorbell by pressing and holding down the reset button for 5 to 10 seconds. When you release the reset button, the Nest doorbell will factory reset and the entire device will restart.

Once the doorbell has been factory reset, you will need to customize any settings that you may have programmed into the device before it was factory reset. If you don’t want to perform a full factory reset, try restarting the device by turning it off, waiting for about 30 seconds, and then turning it back on. This will simply restart the doorbell and not restore it to factory settings. If restarting the device doesn’t fix the issue, you may need to perform a factory reset or contact Nest customer service.

Wi-Fi and internet access is a requirement for Nest doorbells. This means that if your device cannot connect to the internet, or the network is experiencing issues, the doorbell cannot work properly. Thankfully, a lot of network and connection problems can be quickly fixed by resetting the Wi-Fi. But how do you reset the Nest doorbell Wi-Fi?

To reset the Nest doorbell Wi-Fi, you will need to disconnect the device from the internet connection. Once disconnected, unplug your internet router and leave unplugged for about 15 to 30 seconds. After this allotted time, plug the router back in and let the device boot up.

If the doorbell still won’t connect to the network, make sure your internet is currently up and running. Check other devices on your network and see if they can connect to Wi-Fi. If they also cannot connect to your internet, the issue is a problem with your internet service and will require contacting your internet provider for further assistance.
