Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

The Ring is a great little device. I love it when I see an alert on my Apple Watch, tap a button on my phone, and then see the UPS deliverer walking away from my front door. When you’re home though, it’s nice to have a door chime. The first thing you do when you’re setting up one of these is to join a wireless network called Chime-****something****. This is pretty common in the home automation world. Devices ship running as a WAP so you can wirelessly control and set them up. IMG_8431 Once the device joins the wireless network, open the Ring app and then verify that you’re joined to the right wireless network. If you need to leave the app and join the right network, do so. IMG_8432 Provided that you’re joined to the Chime network, the Chime will then scan for Wi-Fi networks. IMG_8433 Once the networks have been listed, choose the one yours will live on (or use the Add Hidden Network option if you have a suppressed SSID). IMG_8434 When prompted, provide a password for the network. IMG_8435 The chime then completes setup and should be audible when the button on the Ring is pressed. IMG_8436
