The ring doorbell is not like a regular doorbell – it does not require wiring your existing system. It is also relatively light to install, as it involves screwing into a bracket on the outer wall of your house.
Let’s get started.
Setting up your Ring doorbell is an effortless process. If you freshly got this smart video doorbell, grasp the steps below to make the device operate properly. All you need is the system itself, a smartphone, and a Wi-Fi connection.
Set up your Ring video doorbell:
Install App for Ring Doorbell:
Unlike most other devices, which need to be installed first and then the application setup is final, ring doorbell is another method. You must first set the ring doorbell using the app, which is available for iOS and Android.
Follow the Manual Guide:
Then follow the on-screen guidance to create a new account. This
includes entering your first and last name, your country, email address and a password.
Select Your Ring Device OR Scan QR Code:
After that, select the ring device you are setting. You can also locate the QR code in the Quick Start Guide that came with the ring device. When the green line or green box appears above or around the code, you can proceed to the next step.
(NOTE: You can give a name to your ring doorbell by a tap on “Custom”)
Allow Your Location:
If this is your prime time installing a ring device, you will get a notification from your phone that the Ring app wants to use your phone’s location services to indicate your location. Allowing the application to do this will help input your address.
Turn on the Setup Mode:
Now it’s turns to put your ring doorbell into setup mode.
To perform this, press and release the orange button on the back of your ring video doorbell. When there is a white light in front of your ring video doorbell, hit on the “Continue” button in your ring app.
Connect Your Phone with Ring Wi-Fi Network:
If you are an iOS user, on iOS devices, go to Settings> Wi-Fi> and tap on Ring Wi-Fi Network.
If you’re using Android, swipe down from the top of your screen, tap Wi-Fi, then tap Ring Wi-Fi Network.
Connect Your Device to Wi-Fi:
Once you are connected to the device, go back to the ring application. Select your home Wi-Fi network from the list and enter the password.
It will consider some time to connect to your home Wi-Fi network.
Installation of Ring Doorbell:
- After the ring doorbell is set, you must install the device so that you can start using it to receive alerts and record videos.
- You can start by removing the orange sticker covering the mounting plate. Then place the mounting plate on the wall where you want the ring doorbell.
- Connect the plate to the wall using the screws provided using your power drill.
- Now, this is good, and now you can start using your ring doorbell.
