What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ring Video Doorbell Wi-Fi Enabled in Satin Nickel
  • I couldn’t find the specs on the Skybell. Ring seemed to have slightly higher video quality in the day and slightly higher audio quality but this may be subjective.
  • The Ring video doorbell is a solid choice for people looking to get into smart home technology, and provides security, peace of mind, and ease of use that is not present in many other options at this price point.
  • Overall the Ring video doorbell is a solid product. I took a star off for the video and audio quality, as they are nowhere near close to what is represented in marketing materials.
  • Video quality is top notch with a wide field of view
  • The video quality has nothing to do with my network speed or my internet speed, period. I'm not sure whether it's the camera itself or that Ring compresses the video to the point it's nearly useless, but either way it's a problem.
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 Wi-Fi Enabled in Satin Nickel
  • Interface to adjust sensitivity is intuitive
  • Night vision is excellent too, great picture quality in the blackest of night.
  • Fast notification (1 second instead of 5 seconds when i tested the defective one)
  • The motion function engages when people are walking away, not when they walk up. MANY of my videos are of people's backsides.
  • Deleting old videos are a bit of a chore, especially if you have lots of activations
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.
