Chime and Chime Pro (1st and 2nd Generation) products are dedicated to their home Locations. Locations (identified by different addresses) allow you to group your Ring devices by their physical location in the Ring app. This means that a Security Camera can only activate a Ring Chime at the same Location, and cannot activate a Ring Chime at a different Location.

Note: If all of your Ring devices and Chimes are registered at only one Location, or if you have not linked Ring Chime devices across different Locations, this change does not affect you.
Ring Chime devices can be easily moved between Locations.

Here are some more ways you can get an audible alert for activity detected by doorbells and cameras in multiple Locations:
- Customise your App Alert Tones per camera: The Ring app (available on iOS and Android) can play a unique notification tone for each of your doorbells and cameras. This can help you hear different audible tones for ring and motion alerts at your different Locations.
- Play announcements through Alexa: If you own an Amazon Echo Show or Echo speaker, you can have Alexa announce motion and doorbell alerts from any device.
