Once it’s fully charged, download and open the Ring app on your smartphone. Tap on the ‘+’ button to add your Ring Doorbell to the app.

You can also set up additional features like Ring Chime and Ring Chime Pro to enhance your doorbell experience.
Setting Up the Ring Chime Device
To set up the Ring Chime device, you’ll need to follow a few simple steps.
First, plug the Chime into a power outlet near your Ring Doorbell. Make sure it’s within the Wi-Fi range and that the Chime is in setup mode. You can do this by pressing and holding the Chime’s reset button for five seconds until the light begins to flash.
Next, open the Ring app on your smartphone and select the Ring Chime device from the list of available devices. Follow the on-screen instructions to connect the Chime to your Wi-Fi network.
Once connected, you can customize the Chime’s settings, such as adjusting the volume and selecting different chime tones.
However, if you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rain or extreme heat, consider additional protective measures.
Do Wi-Fi setup near final doorbell location Even though you’re connecting your doorbell to your Wi-Fi before it’s installed, it’s best to do the Wi-Fi setup with the doorbell close to its final installation location.
With these easy steps, you’ll have your Ring Chime device set up and ready to go in no time.
This is found in the device settings in the Ring app.
You can get spare batteries so you can keep one fully charged, or alternatively there is a solar-powered mount for charging as you go, available Turn off mobile video access: This is another option in the app settings that will preserve battery life – accessing the live video feed uses a lot of power.
Have alerts open full screen video: If you really want to see what’s happening, you can have any alert open as full screen video on your mobile device.
If you have your Ring Video Doorbell wired to your interior chime and it’s not chiming, remove the face plate and double-check that your connections are secure. (If you have a digital chime, now is also a good time to reverse your diode if necessary.) If everything seems to be in order, you can screw the two included security screws into the underside of the faceplate using the small end of the included screwdriver.
Depending on the model you choose, it can be powered by an existing doorbell wiring or a rechargeable battery.

In the settings menu, scroll down and choose the ‘Chime’ option.
Follow the prompts to pair the Chime with your Ring Doorbell.

If you’re not sure about your transformer’s power rating, contact a Nest Pro installer or an electrician or follow the instructions in How to check your transformer’s voltage Some doorbell systems may not be able to deliver enough power to the chime after Nest doorbell installation, even if the transformer is rated between 8 to 24 V AC and 10 VA in North America or 8 to 24 V AC and 10 VA in Europe.
Power off the doorbell circuit:If you are installing a wired Ring Doorbell, turn off the power to your doorbell circuit at the breaker box to avoid any electrical accidents during installation.
The battery-powered Ring Video Doorbell is the most common device people choose and the tools you need for installation come in the box.

Once they’re connected, simply press the doorbell button to activate the Chime. Listen carefully for the Chime’s sound, which should be audible from the Chime itself. If you don’t hear any sound, check the Chime’s volume settings and make sure it isn’t muted.
Additionally, ensure that the Chime is within range of your Ring Doorbell and that it’s receiving a strong Wi-Fi signal. By testing and verifying the Chime connection in this way, you can ensure that it’s working properly and will alert you when someone rings your doorbell.
Consider options such as motion sensitivity settings, disabling audio recording, and controlling access to video footage via the Ring app.
