However, mounting 2 screw on a piece of plastic to the wall made me feel unsecured about this $200+ piece of equipment.
Therefore, I decided to made a cover for the doorbell.
So I decided to use a 2x4, because I mounted my Nest doorbell at an angle.
However, if you mount it straight, you can just use a 1x4 or better if you can get the real 1 in thick since the 1x4 at the home improvement store only give you 3/4 in x 3.5 in. But I think it should be enough thickness anyway.
As a measurement, I marked 2 center points for drill the hole at 3 in part. After the 2, It would be 4 3/4 or 4.75 in, which give it some room for easy insert the Nest Hello.
Next I draw the circle to make a round cut around the wood to make it look nice.
With this protector, I think this feel a lot stronger and secured.
I may have make this a big deal but I think it added a nice touch to the doorbell.
