How do I use the wire extensions that came with my Arlo Essential Video Doorbell?

If your existing doorbell wires are too short, you can use wire extensions when you install your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell. Wire extensions and fasteners come included in the box with your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell.

Note: Wiring your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell Wire-Free is optional.

To connect wire extensions to your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell:

  1. Find the wire extensions and fasteners from the box.

    The wire extensions are identical and interchangeable.
  2. Remove the rubber ends from the wire extensions.
  3. Attach the wire extensions to the end of your existing doorbell wires.

    To do this, connect the wire ends of the wire extensions (not the prong ends) to your existing doorbell wires, and twist the wires together.
  4. Place the fasteners on top of the connected wire ends, and twist the fasteners.
    The fasteners funnel and secure the wires together.
  5. Attach the extended wires to your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell.
  6. Tuck the wire extensions and the fasteners into the wiring cavity in the wall, behind your doorbell.
    If there is not sufficient space, you might need to use the angled mounting plate to create additional space behind the doorbell.
  7. Place your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell onto the mounting plate in an up-and-in motion.

You are ready to continue the setup process for your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell.
