Some Ring doorbells and security cameras are battery-powered and don’t require wiring to work. Other devices are plug-in only or require hard-wiring.
Battery-powered doorbells can be wired to your internal doorbell chime. However, they only receive a trickle-charge from the wiring and are primarily powered by the battery. Doorbell solar chargers can also provide a trickle charge to battery devices.
Note: Consult the individual product’s FAQ for a listing of the power options available for that device.
Ring doorbells may be connected to low voltage transformers that power internal doorbell chimes. You can connect a Ring doorbell in series with a transformer operating between 8V and 24V AC only (40V max) at 50/60Hz. Intercom systems and DC transformers aren't compatible. Do not use a halogen or garden lighting transformer to power your Ring device.
Always follow the safety instructions in your Ring device manual. Turn off the power at the breaker before working with any electrical wires.
WARNING: Electric shock hazard. Disconnect power to installation area at your circuit breaker or fuse box before beginning installation. Always use caution when handling electrical wiring.
Installation by a qualified electrician may be required in your area. Refer to your local laws and building codes before performing electrical work; permits plus professional installation may be required by law.
Your Ring doorbell comes with a partially charged battery because there are restrictions related to shipping fully-charged lithium batteries. The battery should have enough charge to set up the doorbell. However, if you have experienced multiple failed setup attempts, you may need to fully charge the battery before you can complete the setup process.
If you’re wiring a battery-powered doorbell, you'll still need to charge your battery to 100% for the best performance. Hardwiring only provides a trickle charge to battery-powered doorbells.
Depending on the device, it should take 4-10 hours for a battery to fully recharge.
Yes. You'll receive email reminders when your battery needs charging. The Ring app will also display a low-battery warning on each device that is running low.
