You know forever I was using it near in my window end it would miss motion a lot not record like I had wanted it really wasn’t until I started getting the most out of it in my house facing my doors with it plugged in..
These were really easy to install. And the motion detectors work very well (I live close to a street where people walk by a lot). I bought two for my front and back door, and I feel much safer living at my house. The neighbor feature in the ring app is nice too, because it alerts me of when things are happening in the area. I highly recommend. I like that I can leave my house for long periods and worry about intrusions.
I am disabled, so when someone comes to the door, it takes me a good while just to get up with my walker walk to the door see who it is what they want I can’t stand for any amount of time. I finally got my son-in-law to put this up for me yesterday I love it. I can talk to my grandson when he’s outside playing I can talk to people at the door without having to get up the motion. Detector works well at night I can see good. my daughters trailer is straight across from our home and I could see her front door so if there’s something going on I can see over there this is going to be so helpful. I highly highly recommend it I’ve thought about getting one for my back door just for protection so if the motion sensor goes off, don’t wait if you’re considering getting one of these especially now with the reduced in. Price for the holidays don’t white get it
So far, the only ‘issue’ - admittedly a somewhat secondary one given that all we wanted was a doorbell on a side porch door… that most visitors go to rather than the front door that DID have a hardwired, mid-20th century doorbell… was that with strong backlighting at dawn or dusk, the camera appears to set its aperture based on average lighting instead of on the camera-side of the shadowy figures at the door. This forced me to put a dusk-to-dawn bulb in the side door porch light… which is probably a good thing anyway.
I bought this to replace a 1st generation RING doorbell and the improvement is honestly shocking. Obviously I expected it to be better being that it's newer but the improvement - specifically in night vision and battery life - was honestly surprising. I was also impressed by the improved performance in cold weather. I live in central MN and this RING will continue to perform in even the coldest weather when my remaining 1st generation RING won't work. Wifi strength is about the same as 1st generation.
