Do I understand correctly that the Ring Video Doorbell won’t work with wireless chimes?
Good question, @mjdog! The Video Doorbells will operate with compatible chime kits listed for the specific model. It can work with both mechanical and digital chime kits. As for wireless chimes, only our Chime is compatible for this functionality, although Alexa and other integrations could accomplish notifications.
But will your Chime work with the 2nd generation door bell wirelessly?
You got it, @mjdog! The Ring branded Chime and Chime Pro will work with any Ring Video Doorbell or Camera. Upon setting up both Ring devices in the Ring app, you will have the option to link chimes, toggle certain alerts, and even choose your Chime alert tones. I hope this helps!
