Video Doorbell Pro Requirements


The Video Doorbell Pro is designed to replace an existing wired doorbell with a mechanical chime. If your home does not have a wired doorbell, you will need to install wiring first in order to use the Video Doorbell Pro.

Below is a list of what is needed to install Video Doorbell Pro within your home or business:

  • Existing doorbell wiring

  • A mechanical chime. Not compatible with digital chimes.

  • A transformer with 8-24VAC, 10-30VA

In addition to the above, you’ll need to make sure that you have a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection, and an Android or iOS phone or tablet that meets our system requirements.

A monitoring subscription is not required to use the Video Doorbell Pro, however, with one you can take advantage of videos being recorded to your timeline, and features like Video Verification.
