New Ring Doorbell Gen. 2 ($99.99 model)


Just got my Ring tonight and thinking about installation. The backplate includes what seems to be a pretty strong magnet. Is this strong enough to use as the only method of attaching it to a metal door?

I don’t find any mention of this anywhere and it doesn’t seem like earlier versions even had the magnet.


Hi @TheWriteStuff ! Great question :slight_smile: I wouldn’t recommend just ataching the bracket to your metal door. I would suggest properly installing it with the mounting bracket and required screws to ensure it is secure. Let us know if you have any other questions!
