Installation – Since the Ring Pro is hardwired, there is a little bit of know-how required when setting up your new doorbell.

Finish – The Ring Pro has dimensions of 4.5 x 1.85 x 0.80’’, making it a little bit smaller than Elite’s 4.70 x 2.75 x 0.43’’ measurements when flush-mounted.

Both models 4 interchangeable faceplates to choose from and swap around.
