Setting up your Ring Chime Pro in the Ring app is simple. The step-by-step guide below will walk you through the process.
Note: Be sure to plug in your Chime Pro and set it up before setting up your other devices.
To download the Ring App:
- On your mobile device, go to the App Store.
- Do a search for “Ring.”
- Download and install the Ring app on your mobile device.
- Tap “Setup Device”
- Select Chime Pro.
After beginning the setup process you will have the opportunity to name your Ring Chime to distinguish it from the other Ring products in your account. Several default names are suggested or you can enter a custom name for your Chime.
In the next step, if this is your first time setting up a Ring product, you will get a request from your phone informing you that the Ring App wishes to use your phone’s location services to pinpoint your location. Allowing the app to do so will assist in inputting your address. Without a specific location, certain features of your Ring Chime Pro will not work properly.
Note: The app will estimate your address as closely as possible. If it is not completely accurate and misses the address by a few numbers, the app will still work properly.
For the next step, you'll need to wait for the light on the front of your Chime Pro to pulse slowly. Then your phone or tablet will need to connect to the Wi-Fi network called “ChimePro.”
Note: The light on your Chime Pro is not particularly strong and can be drowned out by ordinary room light. If you can't see the pulsing light, wait about three minutes and then proceed with these instructions.
If you’re on an Android device, this step should happen automatically. If it doesn’t, please click here for tips on what to do next.
On an iPhone or iPad, follow the instructions below:
- Press the Home button on your iPhone or iPad to leave the Ring app.
- Navigate to the “Settings” app.
- Tap “Wi-Fi.”
- Select the network from the list that begins with “ChimePro-.”
- Close your Settings App and return to the Ring App.
- When you return to the Ring app, the app will automatically scan for available Wi-Fi networks. Select the network closest to your Chime Pro to connect it.
The remainder of this step should complete automatically. If it doesn’t or if you run into any problems, click here.
The next step in the setup process will ask you to connect your Ring Chime Pro to your Wi-Fi network. Be sure you're near your router and have your Wi-Fi password ready. If you have more than one Wi-Fi network, select the one closest to where you will be installing your Ring Chime Pro.
To connect other Ring devices to the Wi-Fi network broadcast by your Chime Pro, go to "Linked Devices" and tap the blue button that reads "Add to Chime Pro Network." and follow the in-app directions.
