  13. Verify that you have all of the items needed to install your doorbell, then tap Next.
  14. Gently remove your old doorbell and disconnect the wires. Tap Next.
  15. Specify where your doorbell is located in relation to your door. Tap Perpendicular or Parallel.
  16. Use the in-app graphic to determine if your setup would work best with or without a wedge.
    • If a flat/straight view would work best, select Wall Plate and tap Next.
    • If an angled view would work best, select Wedge and tap Next.
  17. Place the wall plate at your desired mounting location and mark the screw holes. Remove the wall plate then drill the screw holes and insert the wall anchors.
    • Tip: We recommend installing 4.3 feet (1.2 meters) from the ground.
  18. Pass the wires from the wall through the middle of the wall plate. Then screw the wall plate to the wall.
  19. Use the screwdriver to loosen the screws on the back of your doorbell and attach the forked end of the extension wires to the screws. Then tighten the screws.
  20. Pair the loose wire ends, cover them with the provided wire caps, and twist the caps to fasten them securely. Tap Next.
    • Note: If you can’t use the extension wires due to space limitations, connect the wires from the wall directly to the screw terminals on the doorbell.
  21. Press the doorbell against the wall plate and slide down to secure in place.
    • To remove the doorbell, press the doorbell and slide it up before pulling away from the wall plate.
