Can more than one Circle Doorbell be used in a house? In this case, one for the front door and one for the side (second) door?

This question needs to be answered. Two doorbells is not an uncommon setup and every competitor allows you to install two doorbells. The instructions for the logitech forced me to click through all the steps and nothing about a second doorbell (I purchased two). I think I can figure out how to power them both but it would be better if Logitech had a section of the documentation for installing a second doorbell.
I sincerely hope that adding a second doorbell won't be a problem. Pretty much all single family homes have this. I am just about ready to order two of these, and not being able to easily accomplish this would certainly be a deal-breaker!
Hopefully Logitech's product people can respond favorably to this ASAP!
Charles! If you are successful in making this work, please share it with us.

Hey Gordon. I should know the answer in the next couple of days. Just got moved in and the cameras are configured into homekit using a usb cable so I'll wire them up tomorrow. Fingers crossed. If it works I'll post the wiring here (basically I'll split the terminal wire or wire the terminal wire as a split between two chime connectors). For Nest doorbells I wired them in series per the nest instructions. For reference: https://support.google.com/googlenest/thread/20922759?hl=en
Thanks Charles....Hi Charles,Thanks for getting back to me!I have ordered two in the hopes that I can get them installed. I have existing doorbells already hard-wired in, one for the front door with the other for the side entrance. The chimes are both housed in a single enclosure are powered by a single stand-alone transformer.Hoping to hear of your success soon...... GordonMany thanks,Gordy WhittakerReading, MA
Happy to report success. I wired them in tandem same as the Nest that I had previously done. So the output for the transformer (#4) I put into the next chime box for the rear doorbell. Seems to work just fine. I’ve had a few doorbell dings so there is a chance this has a small issue but I also had some issues getting the front connected into the holder. I’ll have to double check that and make sure it isn’t shorting out and causing the indoor chime issue. Just had another some something is triggering that but both doorbells are staying online so I’m not sure what the issue is yet.
Was this ever resolved? Very interested in buying 2 circle doorbells and installing them for the front and back of my home. Since I only have wiring for my front doorbell I will need to run the wiring for the back of my home and would like to know if this can be done without issue or will it require a additional equipment. I Currently have a transformer with 24V 40VA so I should have more then enough power for both. was planning on duplicating the Nest 2 doorbell setup as referenced above but would prefer to know if this causes any problems down the road. An answer the the original questions would be great before placing my order. I summitted a request directly with Logitech IT but its been a week and I haven't herd back yet. Hopefully I can get an answer soon.
Wow!! What a coincidence! I've been so busy with other projects in our house, that this sort of took a back seat. It's now back on the front burner!
As previously mentioned, I have two entrances with hare-wired doorbells. I have already purchased two of the Circle Doorbells, and they are currently sitting on my workbench.
Has anyone been successful with installing two. If there is anything I can provide you with concerning my particular installation, including digital photos, please let me know, as I am anxious to get started.
Also, any wiring diagrams for this specific installation will be extremely helpful.

Have there been any updates concerning my need to install two Circle Doorbell units. As previously stated, my existing doorbell system:
1. Hard wired, low voltage.
2. There are two entries, each with their own button.
3. There is a single low voltage transformer.
4. The chimes are a single unit containing a single tone relay and a dual tone relay.
Unfortunately the provided directions and online documents aren't very helpful concerning this application.
If it's helpful, I can provide an existing wiring diagram.
I am hoping to get this system up and and operating by Thanksgiving.
I an a retired licensed electrician, any modifications to the existing wiring shouldn't be a problem.
Please help. Many thanks.
