I’m new to Ring and recently I started integrating the Ring ecosystem into our home this week. So far everything has been great except for one inconvenient flaw: the new video doorbell wired ($59.99) doesn’t seem to be showing up on the Ring-Always Home APP on Windows.
My devices consist of the following and I installed them in this order as well:
Ring Floodlight Cam
Ring Stick Up Cam(Battery)
Ring Video Doorbell Wired
Ring Spotlight Cam(Battery)
I installed the first 2 cams and the video doorbell+chime on the same day with the Spotlight arriving the following day. All 4 devices setup went flawlessly on the mobile app and everything seems to be working. The only thing is that after I tried installing the Ring-Always Home APP on Windows everything except the video doorbell cam is present on the dashboard/device list. Even the Chime is registered under the device list but not the video doorbell.
I’ve tried reinstalling the Windows APP even after restarting my PC and I did this multiple times. I even tried to reconnect and redo the setup on the video doorbell but this still didn’t fix the issue either. The video doorbell wired only shows up on the mobile app. Even Alexa has no problems pulling up the live video feed from the video doorbell on my Echo Show but still doesn’t seem to show up on the Ring-Always Home Windows APP.
The following day my Spotlight Cam arrived and again install/setup was flawless. I didn’t even have to reinstall the Windows APP it automatically showed up under the devices. That makes only 3 out of 4 cams showing up on the Windows APP and 4 out 4 cams showing up on mobile APP. Also before anyone ask, yes all devices are registered under the same address only one location and all of them are connected to a single WiFi access point.
Now the only thing I could think of at the moment given the Ring Video Doorbell Wired ($59.99) seems to be a fairly new and was just recently released on Feb 24, 2021. Could it be that the Ring-Always Home APP on Windows is outdated and hasn’t included this device yet?
I tried to upload multiple screenshots but as a new user here won’t allow me so I combined 2 screenshots from my Ring Windows App with 1 screenshot from my Ring Mobile App. Hopefully someone can help. Thanks!
