I bought an Amcrest AD110 doorbell camera. I installed and it works but I noticed pressing the button does not ring the doorbell. I can't figure out how I am meant to wire this.
The wires on the right run to a second chime unit which no longer exists. They have been disconnected for years and the old doorbell worked fine this way.
Ignore that the wires are not properly attached. They are loose and uncapped because I was just messing with it. With the wires connected this way (the two whites tied together), the doorbell camera gets power but the chime unit does not activate when the button is pressed.
The "chime kit" shown in the diagram below was connected to the reds.
I have a crappy (Harbor Freight) but functional multimeter and a non-contact voltage tester but not much else to work with right now. I'm not willing to go to big orange to buy anything due to the current global issue that shall not be named.
- Between the terminals of the transformer I get ~23 VAC.
- Between the right-most red and the bundle of whites I get ~23 VAC.
- Between the left most red and the bundle of whites I get ~23 VAC.
Between the reds I get ignorable voltage (random and under 1 VAC).
What is this chime kit that I am supposed to connect to the chime? Do I really need it?
Does my chime have two pairs of wires because of the other chime unit that no longer exists? If yes, how can I determine which wires I no longer need in this chime?
How do I need to connect this together?
