It works with Ring 3 Plus!!! (2020)
Reviewed in Canada on April 2, 2021
I bought this because I wanted to hardwire my Ring Pro Doorbell 3 to my house but my home's existing doorbell wire is not working anymore. Rather than play around with the electrical wiring, it's easier for me to just plug this Ring adaptor into an electrical outlet in my enclosed front porch.
Overall, installation was super easy and will literally take you only a few minutes. The ends of the wires already have fork connectors installed so all I had to do was attach them to the back of the Ring doorbell and tighten the screws to hold them in place, and then plug the adaptor into an electrical outlet. Yup, it's that easy. As soon as my doorbell powered on, my Ring app displayed the status as "Hardwire".
Some things to note: the two wires on this adaptor are red and black but Ring's support videos says it doesn't matter which wire goes where when connecting them to the back of the Ring doorbell; as long as they don't touch each other. Also, for me, I actually had to drill a hole through my door frame so I could thread the wire through for a cleaner look but this will vary for everyone and you may not necessarily need to do this.
The power cord is about 10 feet long which is a good length. It should also be pointed out that although it came packaged in a Ring-branded bag, this adaptor isn't manufactured by Ring. As the product photo shows, the underside of the adaptor reads, "Dee Van Enterprises".
It's also important to know that this adaptor is TRICKLE CHARGE meaning it will very slowly recharge the battery until it's full so if you notice your Ring battery percentage has dropped throughout the day from regular daily use, don't panic. This adaptor will slowly and continuously recharge the battery back to full. Trickle charging can be a pain but it's still better than removing the doorbell battery every few weeks to USB charge for several hours.
Overall, I'm pleased with this product. Installation was super simple and it makes life so much easier for me and my Ring doorbell. I just installed it today so I'll update this review if it doesn't work.
EDIT: (April 7, 2021) I can confirm that this adaptor 100% works with Ring Doorbell 3 Plus. After connecting this adaptor to my doorbell, I noticed that the battery % slowly dropped everyday. I was tempted to unplug the adaptor but after searching Ring's website for help, I found a support article from Ring that mentions that the Ring Doorbell 3's battery will drop to 90% before the adaptor recharges the battery and this is done to prolong the battery life. Last night my Ring doorbell was at 90% and when I woke up this morning and checked the battery level, it was back to 100%. I'm 100% pleased with this product!!
