Is an Analog Doorbell absolutely necessary for SS Video Doorbell

I have two SS doorbells.  We use the chime on the base station for the doorbell ring. Does the SS video doorbell absolutely need an analog doorbell to function or can you wire directly to a 16v transformer and use the Chime Connector to regulate voltage?

You do not need a chime box for the video doorbell pro to work.

Thx —- are the SS chime connectors still necessary without the chime box(for the two doorbell cameras)?

I'm going to defer to @davey_d on this one. I'm guessing that, if you don't have the proper power supplied, whether you have a chimebox or not, you would still benefit from a chime box. I'm also 99% certain there's no harm in installing the chimebox at all (assuming it's installed correctly).
