I recently picked up the doorbell from Nest, the Nest Hello and set it up. One issue that I'm running into is what wires should be used when trying to make it work with the indoor chime.

The instructions from Nest state that the front and trans wires are removed and attached to the Nest connector. The Nest connector then has two wires coming out that go to those respective spots.

What I found with my transformer is that I have two sets of wires for each the front and trans spots and I'm unsure which ones would be used. The setup reminds me of a parallel circuit from physics class but more than that, I have no idea.

Please see the images for clarification. enter image description here

If the existing setup was working correctly, I would keep it wired as it currently is.

To do so, you can remove both wires from 'Front', splice them together and insert them in to the Nest Connector's 'Front' input, and then connect the 'Front' Jumper from the Nest Connector to the 'Front' terminal on your chime.

Then do the same for the Trans terminal. The goal is to have the connector be attached to the terminals in the chime.
