Remove the Wireless Video Doorbell (VDB780B) from the packaging.
Separate the battery pack from the VDB780B body.
Activate the battery by plugging in the Micro USB charger to a wall outlet and connecting it to the battery.
Check the top of the battery pack for a blue protective film. If present, please remove the film and discard it.
Press the doorbell button on the front of the battery. If the button LED alternates between red and blue, the battery pack must be recharged prior to completing the installation.
If the button LED isn’t alternating blue and red, reconnect the battery pack to the VDB780B body.
After the button LED stops flashing red, press and release the doorbell button and ensure the LED lights up red.
Connect the Wireless Video Doorbell to the Alarm.com Smart Chime

Identify a location on the side of your doorframe to mount your Wireless Video Doorbell (VDB780B). We recommend a position approximately 4 feet above the ground for an optimal field of view.
Place the mount at your desired location.
Use a level to ensure the mount is parallel to the ground.
Use a pencil to mark the two holes of the mount.
Tip: If you have someone to help you with the setup, use the Mobile App or Alarm.com Website to start a live stream. You can place the VDB780B over your planned mounting position to assess the field of view before you start drilling.
There are two common mounting areas that can lead the Wireless Video Doorbell to be misaligned. The included 10º tilt wedge mount may be required to point the Wireless Video Doorbell properly.
Mounting on an elevated entryway
If the installation location has stairs or a ramp leading to the entryway, a tilt wedge will likely be needed to help focus the Wireless Video Doorbell on the visitors’ approach path.
A doorbell mounted on an elevated entryway may wake up too often due to constant or uninteresting motion.
Visitors may only be detected once they are directly in front of the entryway and clips will not contain their approach to the door.
Install the 10º tilt wedge mount included in the doorbell’s packaging to focus the PIRs downward to reduce unwanted wake-ups, and improve recorded clips.
Mounting on an entry with a sided facade
Sided facades can misalign the Wireless Video Doorbell and lead to missed detections.
Install the 10º tilt wedge mount included in the doorbell’s packaging to focus the PIRs downward.
Use a 1/4” drill bit to create appropriately sized holes for the supplied anchors at your marked locations.
Insert the anchors.
Place the mount over the two anchors.
Use the supplied screws to secure the mount in place.
Attach the Wireless Video Doorbell to the Mount
Align the prongs on the back of the Wireless Video Doorbell (VDB780B) with the 4 rectangular slots in the mount.
Push the VDB780B into the slots and slide down, until the device clicks into place.
Slide the latch on the bottom of the mount to secure the VDB780B in place.
