No WiFi at front gate


I need to find out if I can connect the Ring doorbell to my home network using a ethernet cable. I have WiFi in my home but not at my gate, so can I hardwire with a network cable and use it like that ?

I see the Elite has PoE, so maybe I can kill one bird with two stones but just running a network cable with PoE to my front gate and then it powers and provides data to the doorbell

If yes, is it just the Elite model that does via a network cable ?



Hey @tk007b. The Ring Video Doorbell Elite will definitely be the way for you to go here! The Elite is powered and connected through an Ethernet cable, as shown in the installation video here. Getting the Doorbell Elite would be the best solution for you here, as it is the only Doorbell that can be powered via Ethernet.
