Recieved the Protect tech today...following the app, searching online, and I can't get my Door Chime to connect to app / phone...it times out then tells me to check my internet - I've reset sky router, reset the chime...reset the app - reset everything and started from scratch a few times (well into double figures now).
The chime itself is connecting to the internet as it has the solid blue light...but there's where it stops. I've pressed the sync button and waited for the light to flash blue and orange...which it does...but doesn't actually connect.
Has anybody else had the same issue? If so - how did you get it working? The virtual bot has no idea what i'm talking about. I can't find anything else online, which I understand as its all very new, but i'm reaching the limit of my patience. All the other devices sync and connect fine (Indoor Camera, sensors etc etc), just not the door chime or the door bell itself.
Please help 🙂

Having the exact same problem on my doorbell and reciver and my mums who also ordered this bundle. Rang 3 times today and told no one is available in there technical department ( don't think they have anyone in place to deal with this yet ) but I've tried so many ways but still no look. Other devices work incredibly well just disappointing about the door bell.

received mine today just wasted 2 and a half hours and got no where the chime has connected to the app but door bell won't connect so didn't even bother setting the other bots up apparently I'm getting a call back tomorrow about this I'm at breaking point after wasting my evening might just cancel and get a new ring door bell as that was a 2 minute install

I'm waiting for a replacement.Fingers crossed that works.Dont think there is any other way to fix this other than getting a replacement I'm afraid

We're really sorry you're having these issues. There is a dedicated Sky Protect App that comes with the package that has a live chat function for these sort of issues, however I have also shared all of your comments with our Protect tech team as this shouldn't be happening.
I'll revert back once I have some more information.

We did have a couple of issues with the doorbell syncing yesterday and our tech team have said these are now fixed. Please can you try and retest and let me know if it's still not working and I'll raise the issue further?

Just as a note when you try and troubleshoot errors with set up it's says hold the reset button on the doorbell for 10 seconds, I'm guessing this means the sync button as there doesn't seem
to be a reset button the the doorbell it's self ? Thanks for your reply

I received mine yesterday exactly the same issues! But now works fine main suggestion is to turn 5ghz WiFi Off on your router just while you install as the equipment only works on 2.4ghz and you will find that your phone reverts to 5ghz while trying to install.
Also charge up your doorbell while waiting this will take a few hours as that is one of the main issues sky said to me as it hasn't got enough charge in (even though it still turns on)
Hope this helps

All synced which is great thankyou. However...I now have another issue - I can't see the video from the doorbell on my app (iPhone 14 Pro Max) yet my wife can see everything fine on her Samsung?? The indoor camera is spot on, but I keep getting the 'trouble connecting to your device' when trying to view.
I've deleted and reinstalled the app...still getting the same problem.
