Ring chime not activating

My ring chime never activates on the first press of my ring doorbell (2nd gen) however does work when the bell is pressed a second time?

Re: Ring chime not activating

Hey @Ian1269Clarke. What is the RSSI for the Chime? If the device has a high RSSI, this may be why there is a delay for the Chime to play the sound on the first press, and why it seems to come through after the second press is made. You can learn more about RSSI in our Community post here and our Help Center Article here

Re: Ring chime not activating

I have the same problem the RSSI is 51 so well within good range.  The chime pro used to work on a first press but no longer does.  The router is about 3 metres from the chime with no walls in the way and the ring doorbell 3 is another 3 or 4 metres away so there should not be a problem, what else can be causing the problem?
