Powering doorbell camera?

I want to add a doorbell camera.  i don't have an existing doorbell.  I can add a power transformer and wiring.  Do I have to have a chime?  What is the minimum voltage required?  Is an inductive or resistive load required?

Hi @cgrempler, 

The Video Doorbell Pro does require existing doorbell wiring, a transformer with 8-24VAC, 10-30VA, and a mechanical chime to act as a resistor—the Video Doorbell Pro is not compatible with digital chimes.
