Open standard gate lock with Ring Doorbell Elite


I’ve recently acquired a Ring Doorbell Elite for my new house. Reason I bought it is because it comes with POE, which is useful as my Wifi is limited to the house and the gate is in one of the ends of the plot. The gate is a regular iron gate for people entrance with a standard electric lock which I can open from home (using a switch in one of the walls) and sits right next to the ring doorbell. Current issue is that I can’t open this door remotely for people to come in when I’m not at home or need to go up and down several floors to do so. Is there anyway whatsoever to leverage the current doorbell to open the gate?


Hi @JP76. The Ring Video Doorbell Elite will not connect to an electric lock that is controlled by a switch for you to open it using the Ring application.
