I got this because I am hard of hearing and I have an Alexa device in every room in the house. It wasn't hard to wire to the transformer I bought and gives a good view of the door and front yard. Sound pick-up is excellent. It hears the cars coming down the road a good bit before it can see them. It doesn't alert with my dogs, but I could set the sensitivity to do so. Good unit, although you have to pay for any extra services from the Ring company besides the basic answer the door, see who is there. It does have some storage on the device, but if you want to save anything you have to pay for it. When full it overwrites the files.
For years I have wanted to buy a ring doorbell but I was always too cheap or too nervous to buy one. During the last Prime day experience, I finally purchased one. I love it. I installed it completely on my own and didn't take much time at all. So glad I am finally part of the "ring family". I just wish we didn't have to pay for video clips to save but I know they all do that nowadays.
It worked good the first year but after warranty expired it started randomly disconnecting from WiFi. It’s possible although painful to manually go through steps to reconnect but that gets annoying if it keeps disconnecting again and again. Called Ring customer service and they don’t want to replace device as it’s just a few months out of warranty. They said I should have bought more warranty….maybe they configure the device only to last a year
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.
I get alarm’s when someone is about a football field away. I have setup the alarm zones to avoid it. But I still get motion ringing outside of the zone. Night vision is awesome, great to be able to see at night. No problem with Wi-Fi. Just a problem with home pod incompatibility. Come on. If you want to charge for recording you can use that money towards paying apple instead of having to go in the ring app and than click on the feed to get live streaming.
