How to reset a Nest doorbell

The Google Nest is about as good as it gets when it comes to doorbell cameras. It contains a lot of cool features, such as smart alarms and good video quality. It also works with all of your other Google products. The price is a little steep, but we think it’s worth it considering the quality.

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.
