Hardwire Alarm

I want to hardwire my ring alarm using an adapter purchased from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/HOMREE-Converter-Module-Output-Adapter/dp/B01MEESLZ6) which many others have used. The question is, the powerline power source says 120 vac / 9 VAC. Is this too much power? The alarm tends to make a odd sound during entry/exit delay when plugged in as compared to using Rings power adapter.

Re: Hardwire Alarm

We are glad you asked @Jsd . We do not recommend using any other power supply for the Base Station, than the Ring Alarm branded one.

Re: Hardwire Alarm

My question relates to the keypad not the base station. Many are using an adapter that takes their old alarm systems wires and converts then into a mini usb wire. This is because the ring keypad is missing a vital feature: screw terminals to except wires from previous alarm systems

Re: Hardwire Alarm

Thank you for clarifying that information. The keypad power adapter accepts input supply of 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz, 0.5A and outputs 5.0VDC, 1.0A. We recommend only using the Ring provided power supply. In the event that the Ring provided power supply is not available, a supply with the equivalent output is acceptable to use.
