How to bypass a mechanical chime for Ring Video Doorbell Pro. We are using the Ring V2 power kit to bypass the chime. If you don't want to upgrade your Ring Doorbell Pro's transformer bypassing the chime is a good alternative.
Do we have an update for December 2022? I just installed it and no good luck with finding a setting to still make my chime work.
Great Vid ! So where do I put the 2nd ( Back Door ) wire in to ? Or Do I need A different Power kit ? if so What would that Power Kit be ? Thank You .
How about a demonstration
Can you do this if you are setting up a front and back doorbell?
💯🥰Works great newest.technology/ Newest.Technology no problems🤣🤣🤣🤣
I have the ring doorbell pro and a 24v transformer. Do I have to use the pro power kit v2 they supplied? I don't want the mechanical chime to ring. Do I do the bypass method with the power kit v2 or just leave the power kit out?
This is very helpful! Thank you so much, I have been having the chime buzzed and melted right after the installation. I am going to try bypass the chime and see if that would help.
Do I need the pro wire terminal, or not?
Hi Chad, I am having low voltage issues and I have followed these steps and the issue I have is I have a front and rear ring doorbell. I can't find how to incorporate the rear in this scenario. The front is now getting correct power but there is no power to the rear. How do I do this with the rear doorbell?
I'm remotely helping my daughter with her ring video pro. She has everything like this video, but it's an electronic chime? She says the electronic chime a) doesn't ring anymore (she turned it off in the app?) and b) on very cold nights recently, just the electronic chime goes off a few times during the night. But no one at the door / ring doesn't seem to reboot or be affected.
So she wants to take the electronic chime out of the circuit. I thought just hook ring to transformer. Some other pages talk of a resister needed. You show keeping the power pack in series?
a) Can anyone explain what the powerpack does when it was in the original circuit with the chime and
b) What is it doing now / why you can't just connect the ring to transformer?
Great video, something I did not know you could do with the V2 kit, however if you already have it installed as you originally did, there is an option in the settings to turn off your chime, mechanical or otherwise if you don’t want to bother with any unnecessary rewiring. Thanks for the informative video!
I removed my mechanical chime completely and put those 2 wires together as I connected the battery powered Ring 3 Plus. It still charges too slow. Would a Pro work properly with my setup? Would it work better with a bypass?
Very good video @sellgooddeals DIY ! I just have one question: if I want to do this, the wires that will go directly to the Pro Power Kit should still bring 16V? What happens if I do this bypass, but the wiring is bringing 110-120V (like there is no transformer at all)? Would appreciate your help, thank you!
So bypassing there’s no need for a transformer at all? You’re just putting the low voltage wires into the power pack?
Hi, so I just got a Ring Pro. In my attempt to install, I ran into the first issue which was chime not compatible. So, if I do your process above bypassing, will this work for my ring? Thank you so much!
why do i need to disabale my doorbell i want my door bell to ring
Has anyone had the video go slightly reddish. I have the same problem where it says the voltage isn’t good enough at 15v and was gonna try this when I get a chance to see if it will help. The ring works but the video has always been tinted red and I was wondering if there’s something wrong or it’s because the voltage not being good enough ?
How would i bypass the mechanical chime for a Nest Hello?
So if I bypass my old chime to the ring pro can I still use a chime pro for ring devices?
