Never worry about missing a visitor again thanks to the Ring Video Doorbell.
It’s been eighth months now, since I started using Ring Video DoorBell with Chimes which I also posted here. I would say the product is fantastic with a little bit of hiccups.
The device streams live audio and video of a home’s front doorstep directly to a smartphone or tablet, allowing homeowners to stay connected to their homes whether in the kitchen or across town.
No need to wonder if something is going on outside your home, see for yourself. Built-in motion sensors
detect activity on your property and trigger instant mobile alerts, giving you the ability to know what’s
going on even if you aren’t there.
Ring operates on a simple concept. Someone presses your doorbell, and the signal travels through your WiFi network, up into Ring’s cloud servers, and then back down to your smartphone. Once you open up the phone notification and get inside the Ring app, you can see who’s at the door, and even talk to the person in a two-way conversation.
You can see them, but they can’t see you—and this is what makes Ring a compelling home security device. Whether you’re inside your home, at work, or on vacation, the system is designed to let you always answer the door.
The only problem with this Doorbell a delay on getting the notification and answering it. It will depends on your wife connection from the doorbell and the speed of your home internet.
The chime activates on the phone through the app within about five seconds of the button press, but unlocking the phone and connecting to the camera can cause enough latency that users may make it to the door in less time than it takes to respond via the app.
Aside from that, if you have a weak internet connection, you can only see a blank screen or continuous reloading or sometimes the video itself is frozen. Audio and video fidelity is decent and does a good job of filtering ambient noise and light. The frame rate is a bit on the low side, with some visible lag, but it suits the device’s needs well enough.
If you want a simple home security system, Ring Doorbell is for you but make sure you have a strong network connections. I would love to try the Stick up Cam as well maybe in the future but for now I’am happy with the Ring Doorbell.
I would like to Thanks the Customer Service Department and helpdesk in replacing my current Ring Doorbell due to faulty WIFI connection. The replacement Doorbell only takes three days to delivers considering I’am based in Australia.
Thank you to Patrick Stuckey, Alana Fayson and Stephanie Jiang, Ring Social Media Manager.
