I’ve searched here and elsewhere like Reddit for my problem but nobody else seems to have the same problem.
I got the circle view doorbell connected to HomeKit after some fiddling. Can view the video fine from my phone.
However, when I unplug the usb and plug it into the mount outside my house the following happens:
- Cannot connect from my phone
- White light flashes on unit
- Every 30 seconds or so the doorbell chime goes off along with a mechanical grinding sound from the chime
I do have a mechanical chime. I cannot find the transformer anywhere to verify the power. Everywhere transformers are makes no sense for my home. I don’t have a basement or attic. There’s not a secret panel outside. I cannot follow the wires between the doorbell and chime because they are inside the wall
I previously had a Ring doorbell connected that worked fine with no special setup.
