How much does Ring doorbell installation cost?

Doorbells have been a valuable part of home security systems. It is always best to install the best security system possible. From security cameras to locks and doorbells, a good security measure is better than none. No matter the time of day, you cannot be sure who will knock at your front door. So, why not invest in a security device with both a doorbell and a camera that records video?

Imagine having the ability to see the person knocking at your door and having the ability to speak to them regardless if you’re at home or not. This is made possible through your smartphone, which has access to the Ring video doorbell through an app. The Ring video doorbell is connected via WiFi for real-time updates. Whenever the doorbell rings, a notification on your smartphone tells you that you have a visitor, lets you see who it may be, and lets you speak directly to them through your smartphone’s microphone and the doorbell’s speaker. Think intercom but through more advanced and almost wireless devices.

Ring doorbell costs start at $60, with further Ring doorbell subscription costs being $3 monthly for advanced features. An average doorbell installation costs a combined price of $160 to $600, consisting of the technology device itself and the labor cost for the installation. 

What are the factors that affect the cost of Ring doorbell installation?

The following factors affect the cost to install a ring doorbell: type of ring doorbell and its power supply requirement and labor costs for the electrician or professional installer.

Type of Ring doorbell

There are various types of Ring doorbells available for you to choose from. Some of the units are wired, while some are battery-operated. The power supply requirements of a specific unit will determine if you need a rewiring or a new wire setup for it. You can ask your professional installer or electrician about this to be safe and sure.

Labor costs

An electrician or a professional installer is the best option, as he can personally check the condition of your existing wiring if you have any. If there are no issues, he can connect your new Ring doorbell to the existing wiring and conduct tests to ensure that your Ring doorbell is functioning correctly. For labor, expect to pay around $100 to $250. The cost is very close to standard doorbell installation, so do not worry.

Why should I get a Ring video doorbell?

Whether or not you are home often these days, a video doorbell is a helpful additional security device to your front door. With its visible security camera, it can deter a potential threat from disturbing or trespassing your home. And in case of theft, break-in or vandalism, the recorded video can serve as evidence.

When you are expecting a package delivery, the video can serve as evidence just in case problems arise - whether the package never arrived or it arrived damaged. You can also watch packages left on your doorstep through the camera to know if anyone has approached them and tampered with them. If you are a parent, you can monitor the time when your children leave or arrive at home, wherever you are.

You may also take advantage of the recording ability to see and record the happenings in your front yard, driveway or the street in front of your house. When a visitor rings the bell, you can check first by looking at the video or speaking to them without needing to open the door. It can also be very helpful if you are applying for home insurance, as some insurance companies provide discounts to homeowners with security systems and video doorbells.

FAQs

Can I buy a Ring doorbell without a subscription?

You can purchase any Ring doorbell without any additional subscription. However, there are many advantages when you subscribe to the recording feature of a Ring doorbell, at a monthly cost of $3. This is called Ring Protect subscription, which can record videos and capture photos of moments you missed to review, save and share. You can also customize the alerts and minimize interruptions. Just tailor your notifications and set them on only for when the doorbell spots a person. With Ring Protect, you can see exactly what triggered the notification with a photo preview right in the notification. No need to open the Ring App (which may take additional seconds of your time). Sometimes Ring also offers Ring Protect that extends the warranty of all your Ring devices at home.

Which is better: a wired or wireless doorbell?

A wireless doorbell can do more, and it is much easier to install. That is why when the budget permits, homeowners choose the wireless doorbell. On the other hand, a wired doorbell is useful when you do not want to worry about a dead battery. However, it can be very limiting and is easily replaceable by a more modern system that can connect to your smartphone.

Do I need to shut the power off before installing?

Not necessarily, especially if your video doorbell has a rechargeable battery. However, if your video doorbell requires a hardwire for the power supply, make sure to turn off the power first to ensure your safety or the electrician’s safety.

Can I install a doorbell by myself?

Do you have experience with electrics, electronics or construction? If yes, then doorbell installation may be an easy, straightforward process for you. Ring video doorbells are designed to be easy for homeowners to install by themselves, especially for those who have existing wiring or an existing doorbell. A typical Ring doorbell unit comes with complete instructions and tools that you will need to mount the outdoor unit and connect it to your home’s WiFi. However, if you do not have an existing doorbell system to hardwire your Ring doorbell, you will need to call a professional. Without proper experience and no familiarity with new technologies in security, it would be best to hire a professional installer or electrician to set up new wiring. This minimizes the risk, ensures that the device will work correctly and that your hard-earned money will not go to waste.
