How can I install Arlo’s wired video doorbell?

Here is how to install Arlo Wired Video Doorbell:

1. Turn Off the Breaker

Make safety your top priority by turning off the electrical power at your home’s breaker box before attempting any electrical work. This crucial step will protect you from potential accidents. Next, locate your current doorbell chime and transformer, as they will be essential in powering the Arlo Wired Video Doorbell.

2. Remove Your Existing Doorbell

To remove your current doorbell, carefully detach it from the wall. Take care to disconnect the wires properly, ensuring they do not get lost inside the wall. To prevent any mishaps, consider taping the wires securely to the wall.

3. Preparing the Mounting Bracket

Install the Arlo Wired Video Doorbell with ease using the accompanying mounting bracket. Simply align the bracket’s holes with the existing holes on your wall. If necessary, create new holes using a drill and a suitable drill bit for optimal positioning.

6. Power Activation and Light Checking

The Doorbell’s front light will glow steadily in white.
To check if the Doorbell is powered on, turn on the breaker switch and observe the LED indicator. If the LED does not illuminate, wait for an additional five minutes. If the LED still does not turn on, verify the correctness of your wiring.
