So do I, still have the same issues.

I even put the access point in my daughter's bedroom which is directly above the door/doorbell.
What is your RSSI at the hello? It might actually improve if you move the AP a bit farther away.

Has anyone had any luck returning their Google Home to the Source? I have to wait until mid next week to for mine to arrive from the Source, but my Costco one arrived today!!
Returned my google mini to the source, got 88 dollars plus change back. Nest came to 170 taxes in.

Wow it’s not very easy to install, I worried about my door bell’s low voltage only 13.6 v , much lower than suggested 16-24v, i installed it, it works , so far so good , we will see. One question is for video clip and face detection, do I need to pay some money for them please. Thanks

I did it the same thing yesterday, the sale didn’t even ask my MasterCard, he said $88 will credit back to my card. You must be in Ontario too.

Yes I am and had the same exact process. Didn't ask for my card and said it would be credited back. Deal went from good to great with PSP to unbelievable.

I worried about the same thing, just try it, if it doesn’t work, return it.,the most important thing is router, the Bell is outside, you need a good router.

If anyone was having trouble with the door cam going offline all the time ...

I have two Google OnHubs in a mesh network (both hardwired). My AC voltage measurement is ~17.6V

Paid someone to install it because the app told me my chime was too complicated (since there were too many wires). The first day it was constantly offline.

Searched google for a bit and they said to maybe put it on the guest network (with no other devices) ... which resulted in worse results.

I turned one of my OnHubs off ... results were better but still offline for more than my liking.

Last night I upgraded the old dd-wrt flashed Netgear R7000 and made it a wired access point. https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/ ... cess_Point (Simple Version) ... so far no offline times at all.

Hope that helps out anyone with some OnHubs.

The first 30 days are free. I'm planning on doing the 5 days for $50/year. It's pretty much useless without the subscription. I think its 3hrs of history.

surprise.. I thought onHub or mesh is better than old style router-extender combo
Yeah, I thought that it would have been fine since they are both Google products. Anyways, the dd-wrt access point has been flawless since I added it.
