Resetting a Ring doorbell is not complicated in any way, however, how it will happen will depend on the model you own, The Ring 1, Ring 2, or Ring Pro. Just adhere to these instructions:

  • If you want to reset the Ring 1, locate and press the orange button on the back of the doorbell, hold it down for at least twenty seconds before releasing. If you own the Ring 2, hold down the black button on the front of the doorbell for twenty seconds. If you are a Ring Pro owner, hold down the black button on the right side of the camera for twenty seconds.
  • Release the button and the Ring light on the front will begin to flash. When it stops, the reset is done.

You might also wish to reset the doorbell to unlink it from your account, maybe when you want to gift it out to someone else. If that is the case, the device does not need a reset, simply remove it from the Ring application on your smartphone.

Also note that, as soon as you delete a device from the Ring app, all the video footage in it will be gone as well. If you have any footage you wish to save, ensure the clip is downloaded before deleting the device from the application.
