Works perfectly! It was easy to install, as were the jumper cables for the existing chime. This was on sale at a great price, so I thought I'd take the chance and it's been working out great. We already have a Ring Spotlight cam above our garage, and this doorbell was easy to setup and integrate with our existing account.
Easy install and great image. In total I bought 5 Ring cameras to use on 3 of my properties. When on sale for $39 it was cheaper to buy and use one of the doorbells simply for the camera function vs the Ring outdoors stick up cam. In comparing the doorbell camera to the more expensive stick up camera...the doorbell camera look just as good.
We had a SimpliSafe doorbell. It would have trouble keeping its connection to wifi and would sometimes not activate night mode.
We decided to give Ring a shot. WOW! Amazing FOV (field of view), crisp day and night snapshots and video, an unbelievable amount of customizations, and ability to link to your community for alerts makes Ring a FAR superior choice when it comes to a video doorbell. It's ability to integrate seamlessly with Alexa is the cherry on the top.
In conclusion: The Ring doorbell is the gold standard for home protection. There are 3 items I have purchased from Amazon that I would recommend for everyone and a Ring doorbell is NUMBER 1 on this list. Buy it now! In fact buy a few. They would make thoughtful gifts.

Works like a charm so far! I was a little doubtful that this doorbell wasn’t going to work well by looking at some of the negative reviews but Im glad I got it!
It was super easy to installed (if you have the right tools)& I would say it only took us less than an hour.
The only thing I would recommend is buying the chime along side with it. I only have Alexas in certain rooms in my house and you are unable to hear the doorbell in others.
And the motion detection sure does work! I would just recommend adjusting the settings so it won’t ring every time a car passes by.
My Ring wired doorbell has been in black and white mode for a week, I saw something that said they were having some software issues and were working on it. I have called twice and have been told that “my issue has been escalated”, no other communication from Ring. Really poor technical support, you are calling India and they just take messages, no one helps. Really poor service!!
