Troubleshooting Issues with Ring Video Doorbell Pro

This article will list out some of the most common issues that people face with their Ring Video Doorbell Pro along with links to solutions. 

Lost Wifi Connection


  • When you push the button on your Ring, it emits a sound
  • You don't get any alerts in the Ring app
  • The Ring app doesn't show any events being captured

If you are experiencing the above, then your Ring Pro may have disconnected itself from your wifi network.

Reconnect your Ring Video Doorbell Pro to wifi and reboot the device.

Try the reboot feature from your Ring App if you are not close to your doorbell.

Insufficient Power


  • Regularly losing connection to your wifi network
  • Regularly shutting off (the white light on the front will turn off)
  • Freezing up during a live event
  • Not ringing your existing internal doorbell correctly 
  • Night vision doesn't work
  • Ring Pro works fine for a couple of events and then stops working

Your Ring Pro requires a power source that supplies a minimum of 16 volts AC. 

To check the voltage of your Ring Pro:

  • Open the Ring app.
  • Tap the three lines on the top left.
  • Tap Devices
  • Select your Ring Pro.
  • Tap Device Health.

For Ring Pro to function correctly, the voltage needs to be listed as "Good" or (when you tap it) at least 3,900mV.

Note: Even if your power source supplies 16 volts AC or greater, resistance in your wires–often due to length or age of the wires–can keep Ring Pro from receiving enough power to function.
