Ring Doorbell Volume Control
The Ring Doorbell app allows you to adjust the volume settings of your device with ease. To access these settings, open the Ring app and tap on the menu icon (≡) in the top-left corner. Next, select “Devices” and choose your Ring Video Doorbell model. Then, tap on “Device Settings,” followed by “General Settings.”
In the General Settings menu, you will find the option to adjust the volume for two main functionalities: Two-Way Talk and Doorbell Sounds.
The Two-Way Talk feature enables you to communicate with visitors at your doorstep using the built-in microphone and speaker. To adjust the volume for the Device Speaker, locate the “Volume Settings” in the General Settings menu. Then, move the volume slider left or right to decrease or increase the audio output accordingly. Note that the ability to adjust the volume for Two-Way Talk may not be available for all Ring devices.
Doorbell Sounds refer to the audio emitted by your Ring Doorbell when it is pressed by a visitor. To modify the volume for this function, go to the “Volume Settings” in the General Settings menu. Move the volume slider to your desired level. Adjusting the Doorbell Sounds volume will ensure that you don’t miss any valuable alerts while avoiding undue disturbances to yourself or your neighbors.
Keep in mind that you may also need to adjust the volume settings on your smartphone for optimal Two-Way Talk performance. To do this, simply turn up or down the volume on your phone accordingly.
