Does the Video Doorbell Wired need a resistor?

I blew out a brand new transformer, it stopped working after attaching the Video Doorbell Wired

Does the Video Doorbell Wired need a resistor? I don’t have an existing Doorbell setup and would like to connect directly from the transformer to the Doorbell.

According to the article, there isn’t an explicit mention of a resistor; it looks like the bell wires go directly to the doorbell from the transformer.

We don’t have the option to use a plug-in adapter

No diode is needed for this setup. When installing the Ring Video Doorbell Wired, there will be an included Jumper Cable to place on your chime kit terminals . This effectively bypasses the chime kit to deliver the power directly to your Doorbell Wired.

That Help Center article you shared is perfect for your scenario, in which simply connecting to wires from the power supply (see power requirements) is proper. :slight_smile:
