Hi,

We live in a new build property which is nearly two years old. Currently have a mains powered Doorbell Deta C3501 with built in transformer.

Have purchased the above Ring Doorbell Pro and need some help installing it. The current setup has power brown/blue going into a connector block on the Doorbell. The push button is using some Cat5e cable going to the outside button.

It shows Deta C3501 A/C 220-240V - 50hz

Image attached.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

I think the voltage required is AC but that existing door bell output is DC.
I am sure you need to purchase the extender chimer and also keep your battery charged at the door end.

get the wifi extender chime and a 2nd battery

Thanks can I just use the power from the existing doorbell?

The Ring Doorbell Pro doesn’t run off battery only mains power....

Is there not a transformer comes with it that suits it? What input voltage does the ring pro actually need

Hi,

It includes a transformer but has to be installed in the consumer unit...

I need one that can sit in my existing Doorbell?

Thanks

Great thanks!

So literally swap the current Deta one for this and the Ring Pro Doorbell should work fine?

Thanks for your help!
