danepak: Ah, it’s been rotated for some reason. Should be 90 degrees rotated.

 

I know this is going off-topic, but are you using an iPhone?

 

I've noticed that a lot with iPhones; I think they save the photo in a standard orientation, and then use the EXIF data to record the "correct" rotation for display - which works well on the iPhone and other Apple Products;  but not so much if/when the EXIF data is lost, stripped, or otherwise unused.

 

 

Apple being Apple I guess. 😇

technician14: Why won't they power supply work in NZ?


Something to do with the chime.
It has to be 24DC, but it’s 24AC.

Oh well, it has to be the Ring 2 then.
I do have Alexa and I understand it integrates better with Ring anyway.
I just really loved the design of the Nest Hello.

 

So..... if you don't need the chime why can't you use 24VAC?

Why don't you tap into the 24 VAC, feed the AC through a rectifier and use a three pin voltage regulator to get the DC volts you need. Pretty easy to do.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Decided to buy the Ring 2 instead.

I managed to sell the Nest Hello. Made it clear to the buyer that I couldn’t get it to work with the chime, which is why I was selling it.
