About this deal

Therefore using a bell transformer for continuous use determines a temperature rise of the transformer which could cause it to stop supplying power, unless the work/pause cycle allows the transformer to sufficiently cool down. If, like most doorbells in Europe, your doorbell only works at 8-12 Volts AC, your existing transformer won't have enough power to support your Ring device, and will need to be replaced by the included 24 Volt Ring transformer.

We then had the new Ring transformer fitted (at the same time as a Ring doorbell), and it solves the noise problem. The Ring support site and product naming is absolutely atrocious and my electrician has not been able to advise me.The reference standard EN 61558-2-8 does not specify a specific time but states “Bell and chime transformers are generally intended to supply domestic sound signalling equipment and other similar devices where the load is applied for short periods of time.

The ring video door bell will be taking power continuously and thus a transformer intended for normal door bells may not be suitable as a power supply to a video door bell system. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Your best bet is to plump for the Rong Pro2 doorbell now and go for the hardwired option, as installation would be like for like to a registered sparky. You have 30 days from the date you received your device(s) to request a full refund with no questions asked. I'm sure that would be fine, but I was glad I didn't have to deal with all of the wiring in the Consumer Unit as doing that as a non registered electrician could be considered risky.i don't have a wired doorbell at the moment, so don't need to do any of the work to an existing doorbell. This transformer is ideal as it comes in plastic bracket - i wanted to get ring doorbell instead of old Deta chime - this transformer is narrow you can fit it inside old chime once guts of old one are removed. So I have recently installed one of these, replacing a very old transformer hardwired Friedland doorbell. This is an ac/dc 'power supply' and although designed to mount on a DIN rail, it should be fed via a mcb. Maybe the best approach is to decide the best location of the Ring transformer (in/by existing consumer unit, placed in existing bellbox, new housing at bellbox location).

I installed a transformer by my consumer unit that is 24v / 500mA DC, but Ring are saying this isn't correct and i need an AC transformer plus the separate power pack which i think converts from AC to DC). Not meaning to criticise, but I think it is more useful to explain how to safely fit it, rather than complain about what it isn't. If you have an existing doorbell, your new device can be installed with the included Din-Rail Transformer. You could take mains supply from an existing socket, into the Ring transformer, but you would need to locate a housing for the transformer at some point in the supply to the doorbell.Also consider that door bell transformers are only supplying power while the door bell is being pressed. I’ve bought a Ring Video Doorbell Wired, the transformer for my current doorbell is only 6VA, 6V, 50HZ. Or is it better to feed the new CU from the mains input of the old CU and have an RCD in the new CU instead of the isolator switch?

Would the best practice to be to have an additional CU with a mains switch (so its possible to isolate if required), then wire this from one of the 6A lighting MCBs (since the ring pro will be drawing little current)? It is difficult to explain all the options to get power to the doorbell as it depends on many things. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Some mention that it does the job, looks good, and works fine with wired ring doorbell, while others say that it's too expensive and won't work.However, this gave a constant low level hum, loud enough that sitting in our living room to read, we could hear it (even though the transformer was in the hallway). If you are a consumer, the limited warranty is in addition to your consumer rights, and does not jeopardise these rights in any way. Echo Show 5 which I can have in my home office to monitor the doorbell so I can see if it's worth running downstairs to answer the door https://www. I suspect that it would be better for someone who isn't competent with electrical wiring to fit it in a separate DIN mcb housing. But the real over-the-top thing would be to replace the whole consumer just because you need some more space for this.
