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 Wi-Fi. To activate Setup Mode on the Ring Doorbell, 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:

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 by resetting it.
