Ring Video Doorbell Chime Kit Compatibility List


Question: I have my own doorbell chime. How do I know if it's compatible with a Ring Video Doorbell?

Answer: The Ring Video Doorbell is compatible with AC-powered door chimes operating between 8-24 volts. Unfortunately, the Ring Video Doorbell is not compatible with wireless door chimes or any chime/intercom system using a DC transformer.

Question: What's the difference between a mechanical and a digital doorbell chime and how do I tell which one I have?

Answer: The simplest way to identify which type or doorbell chime you have is to listen to the sound it makes. As its name indicates, a mechanical chime creates its sound by using a physical bell and a mechanical hammer and makes a traditional "ding-dong" sound. An electronic doorbell chime plays pre-recorded digital tones through an electronic speaker and often has a selection of different tones you can choose from.

If you're genuinely uncertain what type of doorbell chime you have, you can also find the chime box, take off the front, and look inside for a bell and hammer or an electronic speaker.  

Below is a list of mechanical and electronic doorbell chimes we have tested and confirmed.
