1. Line up the mounting bracket

Open your Ring Video Doorbell and grab the mounting bracket found in the pack. There is a little level inside the mounting bracket – place this in the slot on the bracket and hold it up to where you’d like to hang your doorbell.

2. Mark your pilot holes

Making sure the bubble in the level is straight, mark where the screws will go with your pencil.

3. Drill the pilot holes

Put your ear and eye protection on, and then grab your drill and drill bit. If you’re drilling into brick, you’ll need a masonry bit. Drill some pilot holes at your marks and then hammer in the plastic anchors included in the kit – these will help your screws stay in place. Once they are flush to the bricks or concrete, place the bracket over the top and screw in your screws to secure it. If you’re mounting into wood or vinyl, just use the included screws.

4. Scan the QR Code

Find the unique QR code on the back of your doorbell and scan with your phone to ensure you and your family are the only ones with access to your Ring doorbell.

5. Secure the doorbell onto the mounting bracket

Once your bracket is securely in place, clip your doorbell onto the bracket – it should just fit over the top, but if not, don’t be afraid to use a little force. Once it’s in place, secure with the smaller security screws.
