Having a brand new doorbell is always exciting, even though it is slightly less so having door-to-door sellers ringing it to see if you are home. But what if your Ring doorbell is blinking blue, what does it mean? We take a look in this guide.
The blinking light on your doorbell comes quite in handy, as it is used to communicate several types of messages or status of your smart home. But, sometimes, it can be confusing and not always we are ready to go back to the operations manual.
So what about the blinking blue light, what does it mean? Read on to find out.
What does the Ring doorbell blinking blue light mean?
Luckily, there is nothing to worry about if you see your Ring doorbell blinking blue, as that just means it is charging up the battery. If you notice, there is the circle slowly filling-in - don't panic.
Once the internal battery is fully charged, the blue circle will shut off and the device will move into Setup mode where you can start using it. But, unfortunately, you can't move onto Setup until the blue light shuts off and it can take more than an hour to do so.
What to do if the Ring doorbell flashes blue randomly
A random blue flashing LED on your Ring doorbell may indicate several things, for example that the device has rebooted or that there is a firmware update available. It may happen, for example, if your WiFi has suddenly gone down and the doorbell has lost connectivity.
If, on the other hand, the device is not able to charge up, then there a few things you can try depending on the device. If your Ring doorbell has a removable battery, then perhaps it's just a matter of buying a new one. If it is hardwired, then it might be a more complicated matter, in any case we recommend contacting the Ring support first.
