wire wound resistor- doorbell 3

Support says the wirewound resistor is not needed for hardwired video doorbell 3 but the description of the resistor on the Ring site says it is-


Is this a mistake on the product description or is there a condition that it would actually be needed?

I’m hoping to install the doorbell this weekend & want to do it right. Very confusing.

Hey @jjastro. The resistor is not needed for any installation of the Doorbell 3 or Doorbell 3 Plus. It looks like I answered your question in a different thread here, in case you didn’t see that as well. :slight_smile:
