Great product … when it works
When it works, it’s really cool. The video and audio quality are good, and the interfaces easy to use. The online record is easy to access via the phone or web. We can see who came. We have a recording of one oddball coming to the door that I’m happy to have to provide police in case something bad happens. We’ve been able to confirm that some commitments people have made were actually met. However, it often fails to detect motion, even when someone has passed right in front of it. There are times when we’ll come and go right past it, and it will capture nothing. We’re probably averaging about a 75% success rate currently. Yes, yes, we’ve tried changing the settings and re-testing – between 5 and 10 times. At some point, it just gets old. The more devices I buy, the more time I spend taking care of them, and the less time I have for anything else. After a while I think maybe I exist to serve them, and not the other way around. I don’t regret this purchase, but I’m conflicted about recommending it.
It works, but some things you should know first…
I have only been using the Ring for a couple of weeks now but so far it seems worth the cost. I don’t mind the $30 per year cloud storage fee as I’d much rather not have to house the hours of video data this thing records each day in being at the front door. Installation wasn’t difficult once we determined we had the right configs. Things you should know:
Exceeded this nerd’s expectations
As an engineer, I go nuts over techie toys like this but am not easily pleased by marketing hooplah and fancy packaging alone. So far, I’m pleased to report that the Ring doorbell’s performance has exceeded my expectations of what a Smart doorbell should be. I’m satisfied with the lag (~1 to 4 secs in my testing) from pressing the doorbell to getting a phone notification message. Daytime/nighttime (has 2 IR emitters) video quality is better than expected. 720p resolution is very good. Viewing angle is very good. 2 way audio quality and volume is reasonable for most outdoor applications (making this in App adjustable would be great feature though!). It’s faults are already well known: motion sensing feature not currently enabled, no ability to remotely activate the viewer in the current App, no settings to turn off the in-unit fake doorbell sound, no setting to temporarily disable interior doorbell sound (unlike Skybell). I do have a high speed internet connection and strong Wifi coverage to support the HD quality video feed. Your results might differ if you don’t have these by your front door location.
