I love this so much I bought another one for my backdoor. I can now be away and see what is going on at my home at all times. I have an arlo system that I would never recommend. Just get a Ring!
Had the video doorbell 2 which was constantly giving false reports and never worked properly but I thought that perhaps the #3 would be improved. What a mistake! It never covers the programmed areas properly and mostly misses everyone coming to the door, it constantly gives false reports, was never able to connect it with Alexa ( like it says it will ), was never able to talk to whoever was at the door, battery life is terrible so I had to get two batteries, and now it is almost constantly off line as the batteries don’t stay fixed in place and have to be reinserted at least 2-3 times a day.
Guess it works by making us go the front door constantly to fix the batteries!
I bought this as an upgrade to the Ring Doorbell 2020 release. It was easy to setup and install as it is with all ring products. Once setup though, the video quality was terrible. I called customer support and tried some troubleshooting. Customer support was great but nothing worked. Eventually they came to the conclusion of sending a replacement. After about a week and a half my replacement arrived and it was setup and working perfectly in no time. With the functioning camera installed I can say it is a major upgrade from the 2020 release. As far as the product itself (when functioning properly) I would say it is worth the price. Motion detection is great and the pre-roll feature is awesome. Would recommend.
It works great. Have it linked to Sonos speaker to tell us and Echo Show 5 with routine to show us when there is motion at the door. Sonos speaker linked to Alexa chimes when someone rings the doorbell. Great image and video. There is a slight delay but found that to be true with the ring camera. I guess nothing is perfect. We're an older couple, not extremely tech savvy, but it was pretty easy to install and get running. Overall, very pleased.
I finally got a doorbell, and I genuinely do love it. I love the options for quick replies if I'm unable to answer it, and I think the camera quality is great. Setup was a breeze, except I had to set it up on my Wifi only iPad due to the app not connecting to the device on my phone (even with cell service turned off, as recommended)
