Setting up your Ring Chime in the Ring app is a simple process. The step-by-step guide below will walk you through the entire thing.
Note: Be sure to plug in your Ring Chime before setting up your device.
Step One - Download the Ring App
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.
Step Two - Tap “Setup Device’
- Tap “Setup Device”
- Select Chime.
Step Three - Name Your Device
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.
Step Four - Specify Your Location
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 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.
Step Five - Wi-fi Setup
For the next step, your phone or tablet will need to connect to the Wi-Fi network called “Chime.”

- Navigate to the “Settings” app.
- Tap “Wi-Fi.”
- Select the network from the list that begins with “Ring-.”
- 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 to connect it.

Step Six - Connect Your Chime to Your Wi-Fi
The next step in the setup process will ask you to connect your Ring Chime 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.
