How to Reset the WiFi on Your Ring Video Doorbell

Putting Your Device in Setup Mode

How does Setup Mode work? In Setup Mode, your device will broadcast a temporary WiFi network to aid in the connection between your device and your phone. The Ring app on your phone will find and connect to this network to communicate with your doorbell and tell it to connect to your permanent home network.

After setup is complete, the device will stop broadcasting the temporary network, and it will stay connected to your home’s WiFi.

To activate Setup Mode, press and release the orange button located on the back of the device. The light on the front of the Ring Doorbell will begin spinning when you have properly started Setup Mode.

If you’re still having issues, follow these steps to do a factory reset:

  1. Remove the Ring Doorbell from the mount by unscrewing the bottom two screws with a Torx (T15) Screwdriver
  2. Press the orange button for at least 15 seconds

Your Ring Doorbell will flash a couple of times which means it worked. Once it stops, hit the orange button again to go back into Setup Mode.

How to Change Your WiFi Network

Perhaps you are moving, or you have changed internet service providers and just installed a new router. You will need to let your Ring Doorbell know about this change.

If you have already set up the device’s WiFi on your device, but you need to reset or change it for any reason, here are the steps you should follow:

  1. Open the Ring app on your smartphone.
  2. Navigate to the device you are resetting, then tap Device Health.
  3. Select Change Wi-Fi Network.
  4. Choose your desired network from the list of available connections.
  5. You may see the option, “Reconnect to WiFi” on some devices.

Troubleshooting Wi-Fi Connection Errors

Your Ring Video Doorbell requires a WiFi network in order to perform its many useful smart features. If you ever have any issues connecting to a WiFi network or stay connected, you can always troubleshoot the issue yourself.

To figure out why your Ring Doorbell is not staying connected to WiFi, try these troubleshooting steps:

  • Check your connection type. The Ring Doorbell requires a 2.4Ghz network. Most home networks will fit this qualification, but it always is important to check and make sure you have the right setup for your doorbell. If not, you may need a different router or a different internet provider.
  • Restart your home’s router. Overheating can slow down your home’s router and affect its ability to run properly and provide a strong enough signal for devices to stay connected. To solve this, restart it to allow it to cool down. Unplug the cables, let it sit for a few seconds, then plug everything back in.
  • When in doubt, contact Ring technical support. Their specialists can walk you through your issue and help you come up with a solution.
