Ring video doorbell to use with Friedland D3230 "8V ~1 0A"

I’m wanting to get a Ring video doorbell, but I’m getting completely confused by the specific technical details of the different models & seemingly contradictory installation videos.

I’m in the UK, which I see complicates matters & see some confusion about the required electrics.

I have an existing “ding-dong” hardwired bell, which I see is on the compatible list: Friedland D3230 (photo attached)

8V ~1 0A

Max 15W


50 Hz

I’d like for a new Ring doorbell to make the same “ding-dong” from my existing wired chime, as well as do the app alert, & possibly a plug-in Ring wireless chime too (eg. upstairs.)

I see all the ring models except the ‘Elite’ say they can be hard wired.

I’ve seen references to ‘bypass the existing doorbell chime’ & also to bypass the transformer with a Ring-branded one. I see most Ring Models require “8-24 VAC” & my chime appears to be “ 8V ~1 0A ”

Could anyone with the knowledge please help me out & tell me which of the Ring models would be suitable to wire to my Friedland D3230 transformer set up, & keep the ding dong.

Thank you!

Just the wired one will do, that can run on 8V. You’d just use the jumper cable that comes with it to connect 2 wires inside your existing chime. That’s sends the power that would normally drive your chime down the wires to provide power for your Ring Doorbell (currently the bell push is just a switch).
