Doorbell 1 mounting height - 48" from top or bottom?

Instructions say to mount Ring doorbell 1 48" from the ground. Is tht 48" to the top of the doorbell, the bottom, or to the camera? Thank you!

Hello @Wfhound ,

That’s a good question and Ring doesn’t really specify, but most of us assume it’s 48" from the ground to the camera lens. Although being precise isn’t as critical as you might be thinking. In that ‘ballpark’ will be fine. Some people mount the doorbell a little higher for a better view of the vistor’s face and to have a further detection range, and some like it a little lower to see if there is a mail package delivery. :slight_smile:
