I’m in the process of installing a Ring Video Doorbell Wired. I plan to use my old chime to power the doorbell and have included photos of the current wiring and setup. For clarification I’m UK based.
My Transformer is next to the ECU and is:
Greenbrook Bell Transformer
Input 230v 50/60Hz
Output 4 - 8 - 12V (1A)
The wiring setup is before my time and I’m unsure as to why terminal 0 has two wires attached. I originally thought that I would use the jumper across the wires on terminals 2 and 3 (bottom terminals with mainly white wiring attached). However, having looked at more recent Ring wiring diagrams, I’m wondering if I can bypass the chime completely and using the wago connector just bridge the original wiring directly from the transformer to the ring doorbell. I.e. connect the two (mainly) blue wires and the two (mainly) white wires via the wago connector and just house these within the old chime housing. See as how the chime will be redundant anyway.
If this is not possible, I’d be grateful for any advice as to which wires to bridge via the wago and jumper cable.
p.s. I understand that the official Ring corporate guidelines/advice may be to suggest I employ a qualified electrician to install and I appreciate that but I’m happy to take full responsibility for any guidance/suggest offered before going to the professional install option. Thanks!
