We want you to love your Ring doorbell. Our doorbells are low maintenance, but need a little help from their owners from time to time. Keep these three things in mind so you’ll have a great experience.
1. Make sure your battery is charged to 100%
There are shipping regulations for lithium batteries, so we can’t package them 100% charged. Even if your battery doorbell is wired, or you have a solar charger, the main source of power comes from the battery. Make sure your battery is charged to 100% for six to eight hours right from the start for the best performance.
|Charge your battery until the orange light disappears and only the green light is lit.||To remove doorbell faceplate, squeeze ridges on the sides and lift up from the ridge on the bottom.|
2. Place your wifi router so it sends a clear signal
All Ring devices use wifi and wifi signals which can sometimes be unpredictable. To keep your doorbell connected to wifi, make sure your wifi router isn’t blocked behind a couch or in a closet. Even moving your router off the floor onto a coffee table gives it a better chance of staying connected to your doorbell.
