Can someone elaborate on why we hardwire Ring Doorbell if it runs on the battery anyways? I know I know it is to keep the battery charged. Why not just power the doorbell from the power of the house and only charge the battery if it is depleted due to a power failure?
Kind of silly to run on battery and use the power to charge the battery, UNLESS it is TOO COLD or TOO HOT then the battery cannot be charged which ends up leading to a non-functioning doorbell WHEN IT IS HARDWIRED.
My alarm system runs off the same transformer, guess how it works? It has batteries ONLY incase there is a power failure, guess how it powers itself until that point? That’s right, using the low voltage transformer hardwired to the unit. Would it not make sense to run Ring Doorbell the same when hardwired? *So confused*.
Is there some magical reason why ring doorbell cannot power itself being hardwired independant of the battery?
