ADT Doorbell Battery Replacement Step-by-Step Guide
Now that you know the steps you need to follow to replace adt camera battery, let’s have a look at the explanation of each step.
1. Check Your Battery Level in the ADT Pulse App
The first thing you need to do is to check the battery level of your doorbell camera in the ADT Pulse app. This app lets you monitor and control your home security system from your smartphone or tablet.
To check the battery level of your ADT doorbell, open the app and tap on the doorbell camera icon. You will see a battery indicator that shows how much charge is left.
If the battery level is low, you will see a red icon with an exclamation mark. This means that you need to replace the ADT doorbell battery as soon as possible.
2. Locate the Release Tab for Your Doorbell
The next step is to locate the release tab for your doorbell. This is a small button that you need to press to detach the doorbell from the bracket.
The release tab is located at the bottom of the doorbell, below the camera lens. To access it, you might need to remove the cover plate that surrounds the doorbell. This plate is held by two screws that you can unscrew with a Phillips screwdriver.
3. Remove the Doorbell from the Bracket
Once you have located the release tab, press it and gently pull the doorbell away from the bracket. You might need to wiggle it a bit to loosen it. Be careful not to damage the wires that connect the doorbell to the power source.
4. Access the Rechargeable Battery Pack
After removing the doorbell from the bracket, you will see a rechargeable battery pack inside it. This is a rectangular black box that has a green LED light and a micro-USB port on it. To access it, you need to slide it out of the doorbell. You might need to use a flathead screwdriver to pry it out.
5. Charge your ADT Doorbell
Now that you have removed the battery pack, you need to charge it using a micro-USB cable and a power adapter. You can use any standard micro-USB cable and adapter that you have at home, or you can buy one online or at a local store. Plug one end of the cable into the micro-USB port on the battery pack, and plug the other end into the power adapter. Then plug the adapter into a wall outlet.
6. Check the Battery Indicator Light
While charging, you will see a green LED light on the battery pack. This light indicates how much charge is left in the battery. When the light is solid green, it means that the battery is fully charged. When the light is blinking green, it means that the battery is charging. When the light is off, it means that there is no power or connection.
7. Place the Doorbell Back on the Bracket
Once the battery is fully charged, you need to place it back into the doorbell and attach it to the bracket.
To do this, slide the battery pack into the doorbell until it clicks into place. Then align the doorbell with the bracket and push it until it snaps into place. You might hear a beep sound when this happens.
That’s how you can replace ADT doorbell battery yourself without any hassle. By following these steps, you can ensure that your doorbell camera works properly and keeps your home secure. You can also check your battery level regularly in the ADT Pulse app and charge it when needed.

- Can I replace ADT doorbell battery with a different type of battery?
