Though they may seem like old-fashioned devices, doorbells still play a huge role in your everyday life – the chime of your doorbell is your first notification that you have a package or that someone's at your door. Learning how to install a doorbell is a useful skill to have. You can replace a doorbell that has broken or upgrade to a fresh new look and sound. Use an indoor power adapter, with a transformer regulating the voltage, to power the Ring doorbell, negating the need for an existing doorbell or chime.
Doorbell Installation Types
There are two doorbell installation types available:
Wired Doorbell Installation
Wireless Doorbell Installation
How To Install a Doorbell Without an Existing Doorbell?
Users do not need to turn the power off to install the standard Ring Doorbell that comes with its own rechargeable battery. However, to install the Ring Doorbell Pro, users should turn off the breaker that supplies power to the doorbell’s wires.
If your home doesn’t have a doorbell system, or if your doorbell system won’t work with the Nest doorbell, you can use an indoor power adapter to install your doorbell instead.
Instead of hardwiring the Ring doorbell, an indoor power adapter with a transformer regulating the voltage can be used to power the Ring doorbell. This type of Ring doorbell camera installation does away with the need for an existing doorbell or chime.
