I live in the UK and have a Ring Doorbell Pro. It’s connected via the transformer and has a separate Chime. I want to connect my old doorbell. When I say old I don’t know how old because it was in my house when I moved in more than 20 years ago.
As can be seen in the picture, there is no internal transformer but it accepts a 6V DC current. When the bell is pressed it causes the motor to do a circular motion and that makes the bell make a gorgeous sound. This is slightly different to the ding dong type bells mentioned in this forum.
My question is this. I have seen instructions on this forum on how to connect a 8V ding dong bell using a relay switch.
- Can I still use an 8V transformer on this type of ringer?
- The fact that this is a circular motion motor, could I still use the relay switch with this?
