I’m on my 2nd Video Doorbell, and this one is exhibiting symptoms similar to the 1st but hasn’t completely failed yet. The question I have for the community is whether it’s supposed to run hot. It’s hot to the touch and my IR thermometer reads 114F on the front and 118F on the side. Seems kind of hot for what I thought would be a low current device. Granted I’m in Phoenix and this is June, but the doorbell is in a shaded alcove and I took the readings at night. Doesn’t seem right that it should be this hot all the time. I’ve measured a steady 16VAC at the button.
My 1st doorbell also ran very hot, but worked for a few days nonetheless. After that it started randomly rebooting on its own, and I could force a reboot by triggering motion detection. It became useless so I thought I’d try a 2nd on the hope that the 1st was just a lemon.
