The Logitech bell is unusable for most of the continental US.

The Logitech bell is unusable for most of the continental US.

This has been discussed before, but I did not realize how significant the problem is. (Honestly, I wouldn’t have believed it if I had been told). I recently uninstalled a Ring Pro after waiting forever for HomeKit support. I’ve been using Homebridge for a while, but I’m tired of it. The Logitech solution looked perfect. Installed last week and I liked it. Everything was great. Then, today, it reached 72 degrees sunny here in central North Carolina. My bell (definitely facing south) shut down for about 30 minutes at a time 3 times so far this afternoon. The ring has never suffered from this problem once every 4 years, in the same location. Logitech notes temperature issues in their documents, but if 72 degrees of sunshine is a point of failure, they need to be much more explicit. I think Logitech will hear a lot more about this as temperatures rise in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, despite what has been a great product so far, it will have to come back.
