Ring 8KKCS6 Wedge Kit for Video Doorbell
Use the Ring 8KKCS6 Wedge Kit to mount your Ring Doorbell or Ring Pro flat against angled siding or use the kit to angle your doorbell downward to limit unwanted motion.
The Wedge kits available for special situations that would be rather difficult for mounting the Pro and/or The Ring Doorbell Classic. The Wedge Kits will allow mounting the Ring Device to be much easier and allow optimal motion capturing in unique environments. The kits always come with 3 wedges in total for optimum angling. All mounting screws and regular screws are included.
Mount your Video Doorbell flat against angled siding, or if your door is near a staircase, mount your Video Doorbell at an angle for a better view and improved motion detection.
Use the Ring Wedge Kit to mount your Ring standard doorbell flat against angled siding or use the kit to angle your doorbell downward to limit unwanted motion.
Your ring Video Doorbell “sees” the world in two ways. First through a camera that has a very wide view of the world as illustrated below:
Second, through a network of “PIR” or passive infrared sensors that the Ring Doorbell uses for motion detection. In the illustration below you can see that the motion sensors have a much more focused field-of-view than the camera and that this view is pointed downward to catch motion (as much as possible) within five to 30 feet of the Ring Doorbell and exclude motion sources outside that range.
Dealing with siding
If your house has siding, you’ll need to take the angle of the siding into account when mounting your Ring Video Doorbell. As illustrated below, mounting the Ring Video Doorbell on siding will point the Ring Doorbell up, making it much more likely to catch passing traffic than the heat of visitors.
If you mount your Ring Video Doorbell on siding, a wedge kit will properly angle your Ring Doorbell.
Dealing with Stairs
If your door is above ground level with stairs leading up to it, this can cause your Ring Doorbell to miss visitors walking up your stairs and cause you to get motion alerts from passing traffic.
The solution in this case is to once again use a wedge kit to lower the angle of your Ring Doorbell.
Please note that kits are paintable to match your house color.
