Let me tell you about, “How To Change The WiFi Network On Your Ring Doorbell”. Ring Doorbell is basically called as Wi-Fi doorbell and it is literally more than a doorbell.

Change The Wifi Network On Your Ring Doorbell

If your Ring device gets disconnected from your wifi network for any of the issues, it is usually very easy to get reconnected by your Ring app.

There are two main reasons why a Ring device can also become offline. Even the device is also facing some power issues or also anything happened to your specific network.

Power Issues

  • Also for a battery-operated device, that can also mean the device’s battery is low, or may be drained.
  • And even for a powered-device, that can also mean that the device has temporarily lost power.

Network Issues 

  • There may have been a power issue or may be power outage and your device is not reconnecting anymore.
  • The wifi network password can also have changed earlier.

Troubleshooting Steps

Check the Ring app

You can even manually reconnect your Ring device back to your specific wifi network also by following these given steps:

  • First of all, you should open your Ring app and then click on the three lines which are at the top left.
  • Then you will have to look for the Devices which are in the list on the left side of the screen.
  • Click Devices.
  • After that, you will have to select the device (camera, doorbell, etc.) which you need to reconnect to wifi.
    • Follow the same process to switch to a new wifi network.
    • Follow the same process to reconnect multiple Ring devices to wifi.
  • You will have to click on the Device Health option which is basically at the bottom of the screen.
  • Click on Reconnect to Wifi or Change Wifi Network.

Note: When your device is reconnected to wifi, you can also return to this screen very easily to have a look at your wifi Signal Strength under Network.

Check Your Device’s Power Supply

If you are using a battery-operated device, you will have to see whether your battery has run out of charge.

  • First of all, you should open your Ring app and then click on the three lines which are at the top left.
  • Then you will have to look for the Devices which are in the list on the left side of the screen.
  • Click Devices.
  • After that, you will have to select the device (camera, doorbell, etc.) which you want to check.
  • You will have to click on the Device Health option which is basically at the bottom of the screen.
  • Then you can easily look at your Power Status to check the battery charge.

And if you are using any hardwired device but without a battery, then you will have to check to make sure that the device should always receive power in the Device Health section of the Ring app.

  • First of all, you should open your Ring app and then click on the three lines which are at the top left.
  • Then you will have to look for the Devices which are in the list on the left side of the screen.
  • Click Devices.

  • You will have to click on the Device Health option which is basically at the bottom of the screen.
  • Then you can easily look at your Power Status to check the battery charge.

There can be also some other causes for Not Connecting to or Getting Disconnected from Wifi 

  • Maybe your wifi network name changed or your wifi network password changed.
  • Maybe you are upgraded from a 2.4 GHz network to a 5 GHz network and your Ring device is unable to “find” the 5 GHz network because your device is not compatible with 5GHz. In this scenario, you should have to connect to a 2.4 GHz network.
  • Your wifi network password also having some special characters or symbols in it, they are such as a pound sign (#) or exclamation mark (!). You can also be able to work with your Internet Service Provider to change your old password to remove the special character.
  • Maybe your wires come loose. So, when you temporarily disconnect the power, you should check all of the wires plugging into the device to make sure they are properly seated.
  • You will have to check your breaker box. You may also have blown a fuse and just need to reset the device at the breaker.
  • If you are having a device such as a Floodlight Cam, which is basically connected to a light switch or a timer, always make sure that the switch is set to “on” and hence the timer is working properly.

How do I change the WIFI network on my ring doorbell pro?

Your Ring Doorbell can be already working perfectly, but if your Wi-Fi network goes low and you have an alternate one, you may want to connect to it. Alternatively, you may also have changed your router and may be moved to a new home.

In most of the cases, you should always be able to change your Wi-Fi network on your Ring Doorbell device. Even also, they have not made this that much easy. And by giving the fact that there are no any controls that will simply allow you to do it from your device itself, you may also have to use your Ring app.

This is a really very simple way, but maybe it can’t work on every device. So, you will have to just open your Ring app, then you should navigate to the camera, and then you will need to go to Device Health, and then click Change Wi-Fi Network. And then, from the list of networks, you can easily choose any one which you want to connect to.

Most of the devices may also offer a different option, which is basically called Reconnect to Wi-Fi. And after selecting this specific option, the process will always require you to “Press the orange button”, which usually means unmounting the Ring Doorbell from your wall.

If you are not sure on having to unscrew everything to get to the orange button, you will find that there is a simpler way also, if it is not more primal, a solution. Then, you can also change the name of your SSID to match the exact name of your old router or your network. It may not be the most useful solution, but at least it will do your job..

Troubleshooting

There are also a lot of things that you can also check to get to the solution of the issue. First of all, you should try restarting your router. Shut it down properly, then you should unplug all the cables, and just wait for a few minutes until it has cooled off completely, and then you will have to plug it back in. Your router can also be working, but maybe it is overheating, which can make it slow.

After that, Ring basically works with specific networks that are usually on 2.4Ghz. The huge majority of Wi-Fi networks are on 2.4Ghz, but you should also check it out in any case. If your Wi-Fi network is having an exception, then you are going to have another router and then you can simply change your provider.

If your network still operates at 2.4Ghz, you should always check your Wi-Fi channel. For most of the reasons, the Ring products do not work on channels 11-12, and that’s why your Wi-Fi network should be set to channels 1-11.
