Installing Ring Video Doorbell Elite

Before setting up your Ring Video Doorbell Elite in the Ring app, you will have to install Ring Doorbell Elite at your location.

WARNING: Electrical shock hazard. Disconnect power to installation area at your circuit breaker or fuse box before beginning installation. Always use caution when handling electrical wiring.

Installation by a qualified electrician may be required in your area. Refer to your local laws and building codes before performing electrical work; permits plus professional installation may be required by law.

Connect the Ring Elite Power Kit

  • First, install the Ring Elite Power Kit
  • Using the provided adapter, plug your Elite Power Kit into any wall outlet near your ethernet source.
  • Plug the three-foot ethernet cable into the port that says "Internet In."
    • This cable will run from either your router or ethernet switch.
  • Plug the 50-foot cable into the port that says, "To Ring Elite."
    • Run this cable to Ring Doorbell Elite, going through your walls, if necessary. You are now ready to install your Ring Elite.

Install Mounting Bracket in Your Wall (optional)

  • If you don't have a junction box in your wall, install the mounting bracket that came with your Ring Elite, which also serves as a junction box.
    • If you already have an existing junction box, then you can simply discard the Ring Elite mounting bracket.
  • To install the mounting bracket:
    • Trace the enclosed mounting bracket template onto your wall.
    • Carefully cut a hole in your wall.
    • Fit the mounting bracket inside and tighten the two install screws.
      • When you turn the screws, you might notice the wing clamps turning, which will secure the bracket inside your wall.

Run the Ethernet Cable

  • Turn off the power at the breaker.
  • Pull the ethernet cable through the hole.
  • If you plan on connecting Ring Elite to an existing doorbell, pull the wires through, as well.
  • Plug the ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the back of Ring Elite.
    • You'll hear a "click" to confirm it's secure.
    • The ring on the front of Ring Elite will start spinning and you'll hear that it's in setup mode. If this doesn't happen, check to make sure your connections to the Ring Elite Power Kit are secure.
  • If you are connecting to existing doorbell wires, first shut off power at the main breaker. Then, insert the doorbell wires into the small wire connectors next to the ethernet port.
    • It doesn't matter which wire goes into which hole.
    • Using the included flathead screwdriver, tighten the two small screws to securely connect your doorbell wires.
  • Restore power at the breaker.

Secure the Ring Elite in the Bracket

  • Insert Ring Elite into the bracket by angling the top towards you and sliding it into the bracket.
    • Use both thumbs to press around Ring Elite simultaneously.
    • Don't be afraid to use some pressure, since it could be a tight fit.
  • Tighten the top and bottom screws to secure Ring Elite.

Setup Ring Elite in the Ring App
