ADT doorbell cameras, like many other smart doorbell cameras, typically have built-in rechargeable batteries rather than user-replaceable disposable batteries. These rechargeable batteries can be recharged using the provided charging cable and an electrical outlet. Here’s how to recharge the battery in an ADT doorbell camera:
- ADT doorbell camera
- Charging cable (usually micro USB or USB-C)
- Electrical outlet or USB power source
- Locate the Charging Port:
- On the ADT doorbell camera, find the charging port. This is usually located on the bottom or the back of the device. It’s typically a micro USB or USB-C port.
- Power Off the Doorbell Camera (Optional):
- While it’s not always necessary, you can power off the doorbell camera before charging it for safety. If there’s a power button or a way to turn off the camera in the device settings, you can use that option.
- Plug in the Charging Cable:
- Connect the charging cable (micro USB or USB-C) to the charging port on the doorbell camera.
- Connect to a Power Source:
- Plug the other end of the charging cable into an electrical outlet or a USB power source. Ensure the power source is working and providing power.
- Charging Indicator:
- Many ADT doorbell cameras have an LED indicator that shows the charging status. It may light up or flash to indicate that the camera is charging.
- Allow Time for Charging:
- Leave the doorbell camera connected to the charging cable for the specified amount of time, as mentioned in the user manual or setup instructions. Charging times can vary, but it typically takes a few hours to fully charge the battery.
- Check the Charging Status:
- After the recommended charging time has passed, check the charging status LED. It should indicate that the battery is fully charged.
- Disconnect the Charging Cable:
- Once the battery is fully charged, unplug the charging cable from both the doorbell camera and the power source.
- Power On the Doorbell Camera (If Necessary):
- If you powered off the doorbell camera in step 2, you can now power it back on. Refer to the device’s user manual for specific instructions on how to do this.
Your ADT doorbell camera should now be fully charged and ready to use. The frequency of recharging will depend on your usage and the battery capacity of the camera. It’s a good idea to periodically check the battery level in the camera’s mobile app or web interface and recharge it as needed to ensure continuous operation.
