How do I get my doorbell ring to work?

Answered by Tom Adger

To get your doorbell ring to work, you will first need to set up your doorbell in the Ring App. Once you have completed the setup process, you can connect your doorbell to a chime for in-home notifications.

Here are the steps to connect your doorbell to a chime in the Ring App:

1. Open the Ring App on your smartphone or tablet.
2. Tap the three horizontal lines located on the top left corner of the app’s home screen. This will open the main menu.
3. From the main menu, tap on “Devices” to access your list of connected Ring devices.
4. Locate and tap on the doorbell you wish to connect to a chime.
5. On the doorbell’s settings page, scroll down and tap on “Device Settings” to access the specific settings for your doorbell.
6. Within the device settings, you will find an option called “In-home Chime Settings”. Tap on this option to proceed.
7. In the “In-home Chime Settings” menu, you will see an option labeled “Advanced Settings”. Tap on it to access further configuration options.
8. Within the advanced settings, you will be able to select your desired chime type. This will determine the sound and pattern of the chime when someone rings your doorbell.
9. Once you have selected your chime type, tap on “Continue” to save the changes.

After completing these steps, your doorbell should be successfully connected to a chime, and you should start receiving in-home notifications whenever someone rings your doorbell.

It’s worth mentioning that the availability of chime settings may vary depending on the specific model of your Ring doorbell. Some older models may not have advanced chime settings, but the basic chime functionality should still work.

If you encounter any issues during the setup process or your doorbell is not functioning as expected, I recommend checking the Ring support website or contacting Ring’s customer support for further assistance. They will be able to provide you with specific troubleshooting steps tailored to your device and situation.

I hope this guide helps you get your doorbell ring working smoothly!
