Hi forum! I’m at a loss for what to do and was hoping someone here could help me. I live in a home with a Nutone 3003 intercom system and digital chime. I recently purchased a Wired Ring video doorbell and am trying to install it. Unfortunately, the instructions online all center around setting up with a mechanical chime and bypassing it with the jumper cable. I’ve struggled to recreate this and have gone through the following options with bad results:
I just wired in my Ring without doing any bypassing. This was the only configuration where I was able to successfully get power to my Ring. However, I could not set it up because it would not spin white even when I pressed the side button. It just continuously flashes blue, and every 5 or so seconds, does a little click sound as the camera shifts to infrared and the blue circle gets a little brighter. A little hard to describe the pattern but it won’t budge from this.
I opened up my Nutone to find the chime module. There is no ‘trans’ node like in the instructions, there’s only ‘common’ and ‘front’ which both have wires. I’ve tried: connecting common and front with the jumper, leaving only common wired, leaving only front wired. For all 3 of these no power gets to the Ring.
I’m not sure what else there is to do, and I can’t find any good instructions on how to set up a Ring with a Nutone/digital chime. Could someone help me or point me in the direction of some resources? I called in, and all they said was I need to find the chime module and do the bypass jumper thing, but unfortunately I can’t figure out how to do that and am not sure if this system is just more unique.
Thank you so much!!
