How to install your doorbell with a Plug-In Adapter

1. Choose a socket.

  • Select a power outlet near the door where you plan to install your Ring Video Doorbell. Don't plug the power adapter in yet.


2. Run the cable.

  • Run the cable down from the outlet to your molding and then choose a path to your Video Doorbell.
  • Secure the cable to the wall with cable clips.
    • The cable can be run through your walls, or through a door or window if desired.
    • Always be careful of existing electrical wiring and pipes when drilling through walls.

3. Attach the wires.

  • Attach the power cables to the terminals on the rear of your Ring Video Doorbell.


  • If you are connecting a Video Doorbell, it doesn't matter which cable is connected to which terminal. The device will work with either cable connected to either terminal.
  • If you are connecting an Outdoor Siren, you must correctly connect the positive (+) and negative (-) sides. The negative cable can be identified by a ridge running the length of the cable.


4. Plug in the power adapter.

  • It may take a moment for your device to power on. You’ll know it’s ready when the LED indicator on your Video Doorbell lights up.
