Best practices for Chime Pro

  • Plug in your Chime Pro close to your wifi router.
  • Once your Chime Pro is set up, move it to an outlet halfway between the router and the Ring device that needs a better wifi connection.
  • Check your Chime Pro's signal strength to make sure it's receiving a good wifi signal from your router.
  • If your Chime Pro has trouble re-connecting, then it might be due to interference.
    • Some things that can cause interference include (but are not limited to):
      • Materials such as stucco, brick, or concrete.
      • House appliances likes microwaves.
    • Please ensure your wifi can provide adequate upload speeds for your Ring devices through the Chime Pro. Chime Pro has a recommended minimum upload speed of 2 Mbps per device. Upload speeds significantly lower can lead to degraded video quality and other performance issues. Contact your internet service provider if upload speeds are insufficient.
