No. Indoor light sources are not strong enough to provide the energy to charge your Ring Solar Panel to charge your Ring Video Doorbell.

Is the Solar Panel weather resistant?

Yes. The cable connects to the camera with a weatherproof connector.

I live in an area that gets mostly cloudy, rainy days. Will the Solar Panel work for me?

The answer to this question varies based on the yearly weather at your location. Ring solar power devices require 3-4 hours of direct sunlight daily. If your installation area is frequently very cloudy or gets a lot of rain or snow, this could limit the amount of sunlight that your solar power device receives.

The solar charger or solar panel requires direct sunlight. Filtered/indirect sunlight through the clouds will not provide a charge to your doorbell.


Where can I mount the Solar Panel?

The Solar Panel can be mounted anywhere on a wall or a roof, but should be placed in an area that gets at least a few hours of direct sunlight each day. When mounting the Solar Panel, be sure to look out for overhanging branches or the shadows of nearby objects that may block the sun.

How do I mount the Solar Panel?

You can mount the Solar Panel directly into wood using the provided screws. If you are mounting to brick, concrete, or stucco, do the following:

  • Mark the holes where you wish to mount the Solar Panel.
  • Drill a hole for the anchors with a 1/4“ drill bit.
  • Insert the anchors.
  • Use the screws to secure the mount.

How do I aim the Solar Panel?

The adjustable mounting arm allows you to aim the Solar Panel in the best possible direction to catch direct sunlight.

Can I use wedge kit or corner kit if my doorbell is connected to Solar Panel?

Yes, you still can use wedge kit or corner kit with Solar Panel connected to the doorbells.
