Hi @Ronen. You can reference this Help Center Article here for steps on how to physically install your Video Doorbell to an existing doorbell circuit at your home. The charging cable provided is meant only to charge the internal battery, not to leave it plugged in all the time. Hardwiring the Doorbell to an existing doorbell circuit will provide it with a trickle charge to help keep the battery topped off. The Doorbell requires an 8-24 VAC, 50/60Hz transformer, and is not compatible with DC power. I hope that helps clear things up! :slight_smile:

Can I use the New Plug-In Adapter (for Ring Video Doorbell Pro) with my Doorbell 1st Gen ?

@Ronen Since the Plug-In Adapter is designed for use with the Doorbell Pro, it cannot be used with the Video Doorbell 1st gen. It is only meant for use with the Doorbell Pro.
