Do Spore's analog RING doorbell chimes work with video doorbell systems (such as those offered by the companies Nest and Ring)? YES! In fact, most video doorbell systems recommend using an analog rather than a digital door chime.
We are regularly asked whether our products are compatible with these systems. While Spore is not in the video doorbell business, we are pleased to say that our chimes have been tested with these systems and perform well. We will try to provide as much information as possible to assist with installation and will continue to test our products with these systems. If you run into any challenges, drop us a line and we will do our best to troubleshoot with you.
We have tested the following popular video doorbells and found them compatible with both Spore's RING and BIG RING chimes:
- Video Doorbell by Ring (Amazon) Tested. Works. Compatible.
- Nest Hello Tested. Works. Compatible. (The chime connector tucks nicely inside the Spore RING chime).
Both were tested in our offices with a 16v-10va transformer. We have heard from customers that our products are also compatible with other video doorbell systems, including Ring Pro, but we have yet to verify this ourselves. We will update this post as we test more systems with our products.
Let us know if you have install questions, and we'll add them to this post.
