Charging your Ring Video Doorbell battery with Hardwiring

Code: P1-67

If you've hardwired your battery-operated Ring video doorbell, your Quick Release Battery Pack may occasionally need to be recharged.

Unlike a hardwired Ring doorbell (e.g. Wired Doorbell Plus), a battery-operated doorbell does not use the electricity generated by the hardwiring to power its regular operations. Instead, it uses the provided rechargeable battery to detect motion and generate a Live View. The charge from the hardwiring supplies a trickle-charge to the battery. Depending on what functions the doorbell is performing, the battery may drain faster than the hardwiring charge can keep up with.

Battery-operated Ring video doorbells can be hardwired to an existing doorbell system or transformer for continuous charging (8-24 VAC, 40VA max, 50/60Hz), or by using a Ring Plug-in Adapter (2nd Gen). Incompatible with halogen or garden-lighting transformers. Only official Ring power supplies should be used to power this device. Use of any other power supply will cause damage to your device. Please check your local laws and building regulations before performing electrical work; permits and/or professional installation may be required by law in your area.

Is there anything I can do to extend the amount of time between battery recharges?

Yes. Since the amount of power used is dependent on your settings and the functions your doorbell is performing, here are a few tips to maximize battery life:
