Oaks Chime Kit Installation
The Oaks doorbells include a chime that needs to be hardwired into the chime kit. If this is not already installed in a home, one will need to be installed for this to work.
Step 1: Turn off the power breaker at your fuse box for your existing doorbell and chime. You can ring the doorbell to ensure the power is turned off (the doorbell, when pressed, should not make any noise after the power is turned off).
Step 2: Find the installed mechanical chime box and remove the cover.
Step 3: Slightly unscrew both screw terminals and one hook from the Chime kit under each screw (it does not matter which color wire from the chime kit connects to which screw).
Locate the chime kit that was included with the smart doorbell package. Connect one of the chime kit prongs to the transformer terminal (usually labeled TRANS, T, AC, or 0). Connect the other prong to the chime's front terminal (usually labeled FRONT, F, 1, C1). Either prong on the chime kit can be connected to either of the terminals on the chime.
Step 4: Using the included double-sided tape, affix the chime kit to the chime wherever there is space and replace the cover. Be careful not to interfere with any of the chime's moving parts.
Note: Ensure the chime kit and wires DO NOT interfere with the mechanical parts of the chime. Mount on the outside of the chime if there is not enough room inside. Replace your chime's cover.
Step 5: With the existing doorbell wires, connect one wire to each terminal on the back of the doorbell. Use a small Philips screwdriver to loosen and securely tighten the terminals.
Step 6: Turn the doorbell power back on at the fuse box. The light on the doorbell should turn on slowly and become red after a few minutes.
Below is a wiring guide of how the tone should be wired into the installed mechanical chime.
