Hi there - so I’ve got a video doorbell pro and the the ringer button and led ring no longer work (the camera part works fine). I’ve done all the troubleshooting and Wyze support says it’s toast and out of warranty so I need to buy a new one - not great, but fair enough… But it seems silly to me to throw out the chime too - anyone know if I can just purchase the doorbell without purchasing another chime?
If I am correct, I think that the VDBPro is only sold with the Chime because it cannot operate without one. This prevents users from buying a stand alone doorbell only to find out it is simply a wall decoration without the Chime.
The VDBPro doesn’t connect to the WiFi… It connects to the Chime and uses it as a Bridge because the Chime connects to the WiFi.
I think that is also why the VDBPro can only have one Chime. In contrast, the VDBv1 (wire powered) is sold separately, does not require a chime, and can have multiple chimes installed.
