Ring Video Doorbell installed on a house

Like Google’s Nest Doorbell, Ring has also brought some fun Halloween sounds to all of its video doorbells! The company has several more options compared to the Nest Hello, and they’re just as easy to enable—here’s how!

Keep in mind this feature works best with Ring Chimes. If you don’t have one of those, you can manually adjust your phone’s notification settings to Halloween sounds, but that’s definitely not as fun.

First, open the Ring app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device and select the “Chimes” option in the top toolbar.

Select the "Chime" option

If you don’t see the “Chimes” option, select the hamburger menu button in the top-left corner.

Then, from the side menu, select “Devices.”

Select Devices

Tap the Chime you’d like to change. You can have multiple Chimes use different sounds if you’d like.

Select the chime you'd like to change

Next, select “Audio Settings.”

select audio settings

Choose “Chime Tones” from the list of options.

select "Chime Tones"

Finally, tap the sound you’d like to use. Special Halloween tones include “Bats,” “Ghosts,” “Howl,” “Scream,” and “Spooky Organs.” You’re done once you make a selection!

Select the chime tone you'd like to use

Now you can go back and change all your Chimes if you really want to get into the Halloween spirit. If you want to go even further, Ring also sells festive faceplates for the Ring Video Doorbell 3 and 3 Plus. Happy Halloween and stay safe!
