I have the new Kami Doorbell and finished the installation last night (01/21/2021).
The documentation references multiple power options and lists three in the instructions:
- a) Battery
- b) Electronic Doorbell (Use Diode on Kami Doorbell)
- c) Mechanical Doorbell (Use Kami Chime Connector on existing doorbell transformer)
It seems as though the Battery is required for all options? I had to install the battery to get my Kami to work. (Battery Install is a required step in the instructions for all three power options).
Does the Battery get charged from the existing door bell wiring in power options B and C?
I installed using option C, and installed the Kami chime connector on my existing doorbell transformer. My door bell is working (rings when I push the Kami button). However, twice now in the last 24 hours, the Kami doorbell has shown as “Offline” in the Kami mobile app. I had to ring the doorbell with the Kami doorbell to get the Camera to go back “Online”. Is there any known reasons this may be happening?
