Suggestions for installing video doorbell without existing doorbell.

I really want to use the video doorbell for the garage door since that is the door we use all the time. However it does not have an exiting doorbell.
There is a garage door opener button right near the door and an electric socket about four feet away.
What would be the best way of installing the video doorbell?
Thanks

Well if you got an electrician out he would have to wire it for very low voltage for it. I cant remember what the voltage is but its low as i hooked mine up without turning off the power and touched the wires and nothing happened so you could try that. Im sure and electrician knows what the voltage is to a doorbell and how to do it.

I don't know if this will help or not, but I had an older home without a door bell but didn't want to put in a transformer. I found this adapter on Amazon that solved my problem and works great! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07T3GBX1L?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share.

Good luck!

Do you have a plug in your house close to your front door? How do you run your cord inside the house?
