Bypass chime w/ Ring Pro 2 and Powerkit v3

Hi neighbors! I looked into this and can confirm that the Pro Power Kit v3, which comes with the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, does not have a bypass option on it. However, you can still bypass your internal chime kit by connecting your Doorbell Pro 2 directly to a compatible low-voltage transformer (16-24 VAC, 50 or 60Hz, 40VA max) or by using the Ring Plug-In Adapter (2nd Gen). You would need to twist the two wires together that are connected to the house chime terminals (front or back door and trans) to complete the circuit to your transformer.

When bypassing the chime kit, you do not need to install the Pro Power Kit v3. In the Ring app, you will choose I don’t need it when asked Did you install the included Pro Power Kit? during the setup process.

As for the plug-in-adapter, set the adapter down near an outlet that is close to your door but do not plug it in yet. Run the cable to your Doorbell Pro 2 and use the included cable clips to secure it to your wall. Attach the wires to the terminals on the rear of your Doorbell Pro 2, then plug in the plug-in adapter. Your Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 should light up.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any concerns with wiring your Doorbell Pro 2 directly to a low-voltage transformer, we recommend contacting a qualified electrician for assistance. :slight_smile:
