      Answer

      In order to use the front doorbell it needs to be connected to the wired 2 lead wire set that runs back to your chime system. There is no fitting on the front doorbell that would allow you to connect it it. The Solar panel is only for external camera use. It also must be placed where you have more than a couple of hours of sun per day otherwise it ill not charge effectively.

      Answer

      The cord it comes with is pretty long, at least 10 feet. Radio shack did sell the extender, but they are closed and you have to electrical tape the connection if it is open to the elements.

      Can you use this panel to power another brand security camera that is also powered by a USB cable power source (e.g. Nest/drop cam)?   (5 Answers)

        Answer

        this panel uses micro usb to charge the ring cameras. this will only work if the camera in question uses micro usb. I know older drop cams are not rated for outdoor. this will only work if you camera has a female micro usb port as it source of charging. the other issue will be keeping water or moisture out of the port on other brands. the way the ring panel has a cover over the port might not work for others.

        Yes it can but it is not necessary. as long as it get a couple of hours of sun - it should work fine.

          Answer

          Solar panel are used to take energy from the sun and store it to a battery. The flood light doesn't have that type of factor and needs constant electricity. Hopefully that answers your question.
