How to connect your Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Generation) directly to a low-voltage transformer without an existing doorbell

If you don't have an existing doorbell but would like to avoid the need to charge the battery of your Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Generation), you can directly connect your Ring Video Doorbell to a low voltage transformer.

For your safety, only use a transformer within the range specified below or compatible Ring accessories to power your device.

For connecting to transformer:
- Hardwired transformer (8 to 24 VAC, 50/60Hz, 5VA to 40VA)

Ring accessories are sold separately and may include:
- Plug-In Adapter (24Vdc, 500mA)
- Solar Charger (5.2Vdc, 100mA or 109mA)
- Solar Panel (5Vdc, 380mA/480mA/800mA)
Using incompatible power sources can damage your device and cause electric shock

A resistor is not required.

Do not install a diode, as the in-home chime functionality is now controlled via the Ring app.

Note: Installation must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
