Tools and Materials Needed

– The Ring Doorbell installation screws
First, use the screwdriver to remove the cover plate from your existing doorbell. Next, use the level to make sure the mounting bracket is level before drilling any holes.

– It should be positioned near an existing doorbell wire. If there is no wire, you may need to hire an electrician to install one.
– The area around the doorbell should be well-lit, both for the benefit of the camera and for safety reasons.
Once you have found a suitable location, use the provided screws to mount the doorbell to the wall. Then, use the wire connector to attach the doorbell wire to the device.
Finally, download the Ring app to your smartphone and use it to connect the doorbell to your home’s Wi-Fi network. Once it is connected, you can begin using the device!
