Create temperature notifications for the ADC-VDB780B

You can receive notifications when the Alarm.com Wireless Video Doorbell (ADC-VDB780B)'s internal temperature nears the bounds of the operational temperature range.

Temperature notifications

Users will receive a low-temperature notification when the internal temperature of the ADC-VDB780B drops below 3°F (-16°C), and a high-temperature notification when the temperature exceeds 131°F (55°C). 

If the ADC-VDB780B's internal temperature exceeds the minimum or maximum temperature, the device will automatically turn off to prevent damage to the device. The doorbell will automatically turn back on after the doorbell's internal temperature is within the operational temperature range. 

Note: This notification is enabled by default.

Cold weather performance

Low temperatures are known to reduce the capacity of lithium-ion batteries, so users in colder climates may experience shorter battery cycles. If there is a quick drop in ambient temperature the battery will deplete faster, and the doorbell may not accurately reflect the remaining capacity. In sustained colder climates it is recommended to recharge the doorbell more frequently.

For information about LED behavior during high and low temperatures, see Charge the ADC-VDB780B battery.

Note: In the case of a low-temperature cutoff, it will take time for the ADC-VDB780B's internal temperature to reach the functioning supported temperature.
