Ring Video Doorbell 2 Review – Upgrading your old doorbell to a smarter one

Mounting the Ring Video Doorbell

Instead of fixing it to the surface using screws, I used heavy duty double-sided mounting tapes. For this to work, I affixed the included wedge mount to the surface using the mounting tapes and attached the Ring Video Doorbell 2 to the wedge.

The Ring Video Doorbell 2 secured temporarily using double-sided tapes.

One of these days, I should fix the wedge mount properly using the included screws. The reason why I am not doing it now is because I am not so good with drill or impact drivers.

Setting up the Ring Video Doorbell 2

Setting up the doorbell is straightforward. The steps are as follow:

  1. Installing the Ring mobile app on your mobile phone
  2. Inserting the battery to power it on
  3. Putting the Ring Video Doorbell 2 in setup mode

  5. Perform signal quality test at the desired location
  6. Installing the Ring Video Doorbell 2 physically at the intended location
  7. Lastly, locking the battery compartment with the hex screw
