A Nest doorbell is a type of smart doorbell that allows you to see and talk to visitors at your door using your smartphone or another device. It typically has a camera and a speaker built into it and can be connected to your home Wi-Fi network. When someone rings the doorbell, it sends a notification to your device, allowing you to see and hear the person at the door and talk to them, even if you’re not at home. Some Nest doorbells also have additional features such as motion detection, night vision, and the ability to save and share video footage.
The consequences of restarting and factory resetting your Google Nest camera or doorbell will vary depending on your choice.
Restart: This will save all of your settings and reconnect you to the same Wi-Fi network. This is useful if it ever freezes, has problems connecting to the internet, or isn’t functioning properly.
Factory reset: This clears all of your specific settings, deletes all of your video history, and resets the device to factory defaults. It won’t reconnect to Wi-Fi automatically, so you’ll have to set it up again.
