What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ring Video Doorbell 2
  • This made a video doorbell very appealing to us. After a ton of research we decided the Ring Video Doorbell 2 would be the best choice.
  • The install would have been easier if whoever installed the previous simple button had not broken off one of the wires.
  • The video isn't always as clear as I would like it, but it's not bad. I don't know if the problem is with the wifi speed, the camera or what, but faces can be blurry sometimes.
  • First, let me say that if you’re looking for a video doorbell, I assume it will do the trick, though the slow speed and lag time between ring and video connection makes it useless for anything except someone sitting and waiting at the door.
  • The video quality is good when it works, which is usually. Sometimes it just records black.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro
  • Everything works flawlessly and the speaker sounds great. Images and video during day and night are clear.
  • I find the video quality to be great and I can easily identify who is at the door night and day.
  • he video quality is good if you have a very strong wifi connection but even then can still be choppy at times when on live view and the two way audio lags and can be choppy.
  • Only as good as your internet connection. Sunrise and sunset motion detects. Sound quality is useless in my experience.
  • The video was running in 780p (when it worked properly) and it was fantastic to adjust the motion settings and set zones so that not every passing car or falling leaves would trigger an alert/recording event.

What customers say about "Features"
Ring Video Doorbell 2
  • The design of the product is sleek and attractive and the user interface of the app is very easy to learn and navigate.
  • This doorbell records for about 30 sec and is activated in one of three ways: by pressing the ring button, having motion, or pressing "live view" from your phone.
  • The motion sensor always activates before anyone can get close enough to push the doorbell. I can set the radius of sensing somewhere between 6 ft to 30 ft.
  • Motion sensitivity is controlled by distance and zones. It works perfectly with no false alarms.
  • When battery starts to go dead, the unit triggers random motion sensor chimes that are confusing and annoying
Ring Video Doorbell Pro
  • It has some useful features such as the motion sensor and a slightly serviceable live feed
  • There is the standard light/sound unavoidable physics-type delay with the audio using the Talk feature, but it doesn't impede normal conversational flow.
  • I like the motion area setup. You've got digital fences to move around to direct where to trigger on motion (walkway) and where not (street).
  • Installation. Easy, no problems. I installed the doorbell myself in place of an existing doorbell and chime, and it went smoothly. The instructions were clear and adequate.
  • I’ve also noticed our voice connection is VERY quiet. As in, the person at the door can barely hear the person on the phone, so I consider that feature a bit useless.
