What’s the Problem?
This recall affects 2nd generation model number 5UM5E5 Ring Video Doorbells, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
“The video doorbell’s battery can overheat when the incorrect screws are used for installation, posing fire and burn hazards,” CPSC said.
Affected doorbells have a blue ring at the front and were sold in “satin nickel” (black and silver) and “venetian bronze” (black and bronze) colors. They come with a mounting bracket and a USB charging cable. The Ring logo is printed on the bottom front of the doorbell and the model and S/N are on a label on the back of the doorbell and the outer packaging.
The recalled video doorbells were sold at electronics and home goods stores nationwide and online from June 2020 through October 2020 for approximately $100.
If you purchased a video doorbell that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Ring LLC for revised installation instructions.
This recall began on November 10, 2020.
