Ring Doorbell is a Wi-Fi doorbell that is actually more than a doorbell. Yes, it fills the shoes of your typical doorbell but adds an impressive video intercom system that allows you to talk to your visitors, from your smartphone or tablet. You can do all of this from home, or from wherever, just as long as you’re connected to the internet.
Ring Doorbell Video devices are packed with useful features, the app is extremely user-friendly, and everything is easy-to-connect to Wi-Fi. Here’s how to change the Wi-Fi network on your Ring Doorbell.
The First Wi-Fi Connection
Your Ring Doorbell device’s first Wi-Fi experience actually won’t be connecting to your home network. When you start setting it up, it first enters the Setup Mode, prompting you to download the app onto your smart device to move forward.
Once you’ve downloaded the app and set up your account (this shouldn’t take too long, it requires only the most basic information), the app will connect to the nearby Ring Doorbell device.
Wait, how can it connect via Wi-Fi without the device being connected to a network? Well, while in Setup Mode, Ring Doorbell will project its own temporary Wi-Fi network. This is used to connect the Ring app to the device, and once setup is complete it will connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Now, following the instructions on your smartphone or tablet, you’ll connect to your home’s Wi-Fi and configure the settings. Once this is done, the projected Wi-Fi network will cease its broadcast and the device will connect to your Wi-Fi of choice.
