Chuck, Light fixtures will use a 120V not this 12V.
Ubaldo, You wont need a diode with this transformer. The diode would only be needed on the wired push button if your using a digital chime (a chime with a speaker).
Depending on how you wire it, it has multiple output levels; so it should be compatible with almost any brand. It works with my Nest on the lowest setting.
Yes, just installed this for one of my houses and it works with the system.
I don't recommend wiring the home yourself if you don't have some more direct help. In general, you will place this transformer at your circuit breaker panel or fuse box and connect the white to the aluminum bus bar that has other white wires in it and connect the black a circuit breaker, either directly or indirectly, and connect the green to the bus bar that has other green or uninsulated wires. Run a two-conductor doorbell cable to the doorbell button, which will interrupt one conductor until the button is pressed. Continue the cable run over to the location of the door chime, somewhere central so you can hear it throughout the house. If you have a second door, you won't need another transformer, but you would run a separate 2-conductor cable to the other doorbell button and then to the door chime. The door chime will likely have a wiring diagram to explain better.
Absolutely! Just make sure you select the proper voltage for your thermostat.
It will get warm but should not be hot otherwise I would replace.
I don't hear any, so I'd say no. Check the tightness of the mounting, or maybe its gone bad.
You will need multiple transformers, maybe. The danger is if someone holds the doorbell button and the video doorbell is operating at its rated input, you will overload the windings on the transformer. It uses the same winding for the 16V and the 24V output.
