Ring Video Doorbell
Just installed the Ring Doorbell 2 and really like the notification and feature set.
My house was built in 2001 so it has a NUTONE intercom system which I removed the outdoor speaker and patched over with a nice white piece of wood. What remains is an unused ethernet cable. Two of the wires from the ethernet cable went to the old doorbell button and have 9v DC running through them and the rest of the wires are unused in the twisted pairs. All the nutone devices have ethernet cable to them but only use like one or two wires out of the twisted pair. There is a nutone "hub" in the basement, I'm not sure what it does or if it's a control panel?
Anyway, unfortunately, the RING doorbells are only designed to handle AC which I don't think I should be trying to run through ethernet cable.
SO, should I try to figure out where the ethernet from the front door old intercom goes to in the basement and see if I can PoE it or not risk it could be somehow tied into the doorbell on the wall? I guess it's time to break out the voltmeter?
anyone run into this?
