I would like to ask how to connect to Ring doorbell V3 to an AC adapter that is designed for doorbells.
I have not yet connected the doorbell to the AC voltage yet, but i read here and there there is a need of a resistor for safety??? Can someone explain this please?
If it is needed, where do i buy it?
Should it be placed in serial in between one of the two wire’s in the connection?
Can i put that resistor close to the AC transformer? Or does it need to be placed close to the doorbell? (this option is not really possible, since i cannot put the resistor somewhere safe, unless in the wall, or plastic box of the ring doorbell, what is a bad idea imo.
For your information, this is the transformer i would like to use:
It also notes that there is a cutoff in case of short circuit, do i still need that resistor?
“After an overload or a short ciruit cut off input for 5 minutes.”
So this is an 12VA transformer, is this enough for the doorbell ?
If this transformer is not good, what transformer do u guys advice, and do i still need that resistor then.
