Doorbell 2 disappointment

Hi @Qwakuk. There are a few things to consider with expectations for the battery life of your Ring doorbell. First, your Motion Settings and Motion Frequency will determine how often your doorbell activates. If you are expecting more that 18 activations per day, you can experience battery drain quicker than average. The RSSI of your device also plays a factor with battery. A poor RSSI will cause your device to work harder to transmit information, causing excessive battery drain.

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that your doorbell transformer is at least 16VAC 30 VA. If it’s not, it might not be sufficiently providing a trickle charge to your device. I would consider these things when determining the cause of your battery drain. If you made changes to your doorbell but are still experiencing excessive battery drain, reach out to our support team for the next best steps.
