I fitted a Ring 3 and I have an existing mechanical door bell, just 4 months old, new house.
Fitted the Ring 3 as per the instructions on the Ring help section.
Ring video works perfect, existing door bell does not chime when Ring activated.
I have selected Mechanical Bell in the set up section.
My ac supply to the door push was just 15v ac so I assume this is the problem, the Ring requires a min of 16v ac.
So I purchased the Ring power pack option and fitted direct to the transformer, as per the instructions.
Now my transformer has a constant buzz, the bell chime is held on continually and does not work with the Ring bell push.
Voltage after fitting this power pack, which according to the literature, cures the problem of too low voltage, is still 15v ac.
Any suggestions as to how I increase this voltage to greater than 16v ? my transformer has no additional tappings to select for output.
