Ring Doorbell Installation – How to Install a Ring Doorbell

Ring Doorbell Installation is a simple process that will have you up and running in minutes. Before getting started, turn off the power to your existing doorbell at the breaker box and remove any faceplates or covers from the old doorbell to make sure you are working with clean wiring. After that, follow the steps below to complete your wireless Ring doorbell setup.

Begin by taking the mounting bracket and placing it where you want to mount your Ring doorbell. Use the level tool included to get it perfectly straight, then screw in the four screws that hold it to the wall. It is recommended that you mount the unit at least 1.2m from the ground, but it really depends on how close to your front door you want it to be.

Once the Ring doorbell is firmly attached to the mounting Ring Doorbell Installation bracket, open the app on your smartphone and follow the on-screen instructions to complete your installation. This includes connecting the doorbell to your home WiFi network and activating features like motion detection.

Before starting to mount the device, check that your phone is up to date and has an active data connection. If not, follow the instructions on your mobile phone to update the software.

Loosen the screws on the mounting plate and disconnect the wires from the switch, if needed. Then, remove the chime cover and loosen the front and trans terminal screws (you will be using these wires to connect your new doorbell). Be careful not to pull too hard on the existing wires, or they may break.

You will need to remove a small section of the insulation from each end of the existing doorbell wires, which you can do with wire strippers or by cutting off a small amount of the ends with wire cutters. You will then need to connect one of the wires from your new Ring doorbell to each of these terminals. You should also connect the other end of the Ring wire to the front terminal of the chime. Once all the wires are connected, re-tighten the terminal screws and pop the chime cover back on.

When you have finished, test your Ring doorbell by pressing the button on the front of the unit. If it is functioning properly, you can now reattach the faceplate and switch the power back on at the breaker box.

Once the Ring doorbell is connected to your home Wi-Fi network, you can now set up a schedule to mute motion alerts on certain days and times. To do this, head to the Home screen of your app and select your ring device. Then tap the three lines in the upper left corner of your screen, and then choose Schedules from the menu. From here, you can create a custom schedule for your ring device to ignore motion when you are not home. Be sure to save your changes! You can also adjust the settings of your ring device by tapping your device on the Home screen and then choosing your settings from the options.
