Pre-installation checklist

ADC-VDB770 and included accessories

Wire crimping tool

Wi-Fi connection to broadband (Cable, DSL, or Fiber Optic) internet

A computer, tablet, or smartphone with Wi-Fi is required if the router does not have the Wi-Fi Protected Setup

1 Install the power module
Verify that the electricity is turned off at the transformer before installing the power module. Locate your chime box
and remove the cover.
Note the existing wire connections (e.g., the wires may be connected to the Front or Rear doorbell terminal); you
will want to connect to the same doorbell terminal in the next step. Loosen the screws on the chime associated
with the transformer and doorbell. Set the wires aside.
Take the power module and hook the curved white wires onto the screw terminals (it does not matter which white
wire goes to the transformer terminal and which goes to the doorbell terminal). Tighten the screws.
Using a crimp tool and the wire connectors provided, connect the wires that were set aside to the straight gray
wires of the power module.
Affix the power module to the side of the chime using the included adhesive. Replace the chime cover.

2 Note
The power module is used to prevent the chime from buzzing or humming, and it
helps ensure sufficient power is
provided to the
Video Doorbell.
Install the Video Doorbell
Remove the existing doorbell from the wall and disconnect the wires. Secure the wires so that they can be
connected in a later step.

AP Mode (recommended)
The camera is in Access Point (AP) mode when the button LED is blinking white. If necessary, access AP mode by
holding down the doorbell button for 45-50s and release when the LED turns to blinking white.
Using a Wi-Fi-capable device (e.g., smartphone or computer), find and connect to the camera’s network; the SSID
should have the format ADC-VDB770 (XX:YY:ZZ) where XX:YY:ZZ is the last 6 characters of the MAC address,
which is printed on the included reference card.
On the same device, open a web browser and enter
in the web address field. Follow the on-
screen instructions to add the ADC-VDB770 to the Wi-Fi network. Verify the LED turns solid green, indicating the
connection is complete.
WPS Mode (alternate)
: Use WPS mode if you have easy access to the Wi-Fi router and the router has the WPS feature enabled. Note
that some Internet Service Providers disable the WPS feature on customer routers. AP mode is the most reliable
method for installing this device.
After the boot process is complete (the camera’s LED will be blinking white), hold down the doorbell button for
30-35s and release when the LED begins to blink blue.
Activate WPS Mode on the router. The router will begin to connect to the Wi-Fi network. Verify the LED turns to
