  1. Before doing anything else, shut off the breaker that controls the doorbell’s circuit.
  2. If you have a mechanical chime installed in your home, install the power kit and doorbell.
  3. If you have an electronic chime installed in your home, refer to its own manual to install the power kit, and install the doorbell.
  4. If your home does not currently have chimes, please consult a local installer or contractor for assistance.

Additional Note: The Fuse

The fuse is recommended for setups that don’t use a chime. It can be installed by connecting it between the wires from the video doorbell to the chime wires.

Wiring the Power Kit

1. Insert one end of the provided wire harness into the power kit.

2. Now go to your mechanical chime and remove the plastic cover

3. Remove the existing chime wires in the terminals named TRANS and FRONT.

4. Pick the previously wired Power Kit and the attached wire harness, and connect the wire harness to the chime’s terminals named TRANS and FRONT.

5. Now connect your existing chime wires by inserting both the existing chime wire and the remaining end of the wire harness into the wire connector, then twist it tightly. Repeat this step with the other chime wire

Wiring the Power Kit

1. Insert one end of the provided wire harness into the power kit.

6. Attach the power kit to the side of the chime, with the pre-applied double-tape, and put back the chime cover.

Doorbell Installation

Warning: Make sure the electricity at the breaker that controls the doorbell’s circuit is still off.

1. Insert the mini-level into the provided mounting plate and mark the drill points when its bubble stays in the middle.

(Optional) If the wall is uneven, paste the plate foam to the mounting plate.

2. Drill holes according to drill points, insert anchors, and fix the mounting plate to the wall.

3. Connect the doorbell with your existing doorbell wires.

4. Remove the faceplate on your doorbell from bottom to top and fix the doorbell to the mounting plate by inserting the doorbell screws.

5. Put the faceplate back and insert two security screws into the bottom of the doorbell to secure the faceplate.

6. Now it’s safe to restore the electricity at the breaker box.

Note 1: The doorbell is powered on when its indicator flashes blue quickly. If you see this blue flash, proceed to the doorbell setup. If you do not see the indicator flashing blue quickly, make sure your electricity is off and check the wiring.

Note 2: If you want to change your doorbell’s Wi-Fi or want to reset it for whatever reason, press and hold the reset button for 5s and repeat the device adding process.
