This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The photo should show ring 2, chime and 2 batteries —> please note!

Ring Door Bell 2 and chime and spare battery.

Ring 2 at momment is £179 at Amazon and most places. Has been cheaper on Black Friday but this deal is as good.

Great quality and images. The ring 2 has easy change battery compare to ring 1 and higher resolution.

The chime works seamlessly so no fiddling with old door bells boxes and cables.

when you consider on Black Friday you are talking about £140 for the doorbell and chime if you are lucky and this has a spare battery then good value.

voucher code five4u gets you a fiver off the £156.25 inc post. Plus 4% cash back I think from Quidco.

You can screw it to your door or use sticky plastic pad stuff like I did... and if it gets stolen they’ll get you a new one.

Ring will sting you for long term subscription for keeping Videos but as a door bell it’s fine.

I’ve just gone through the process of weighing up the different video doorbell options. I decided that I wanted a wired rather than battery powered unit as I didn’t want the hassle of changing batteries nor the inherent lag of a battery unit having to wake from its battery saving state. In my opinion the most important part of a video doorbell setup is the lag from button press to phone notification and then to app launch. There’s no way an Amazon delivery driver is going to hang around for more than a few seconds.

The two main options for mains powered doorbells are Ring Pro & Nest Hello. Cloud storage is £2.50 & £4 per month respectively. You will need this if you want your doorbell to act like CCTV and record what’s going on outside your house.

U.K. doorbells in this county generally operate at 8V. These devices are both made for the American market and therefore require 16-24 Volts. That means a new transformer. You may need an electrician to install. I bought a mains plug in transformer made by Ring (works with Nest Hello too) which works perfectly.

I decided with the Nest Hello. Mainly because it records non-stop to the cloud (5 days available on the £4 package). Ring only records to the cloud when it spots movement. However, they are both reviewed very well in comparison tests (check YouTube).

I also particularly like the fact that the sensor in the camera is able record video at night time without flicking to black & white infrared night mode. The ambient street lighting gives me a full colour picture on my driveway.

The notifications work well limiting a large part of fake movement that my other cameras generate. It does a good job of identifying people over animals / trees blowing in the wind.

Another benefit of the Nest is that it can be linked to a Google Home Hub (like an Echo show). This enables the video feed to auto launch when the bell is pressed (about 1 sec after).

The Ring Pro works with an Echo Show instead (both owned by Amazon) but there is no auto launch. You can view the door but you lose valuable seconds asking Alexa to ‘show front door’ after the bell sounds.

Delays for me are as follows.

Button push to phone notification = 4 secs
Button push to home hub video = 1 secs
Movement detected to notification = 10secs

One last point is those who have taken the Ring route make sure you download the new phone app called Rapid Ring. It’s a companion app designed to tackle the notification delays that Ring has been experiencing with their main app.

Sorry for the long post but I struggled to find enough details about the differences in video doorbells when I first looked. I hope this helps someone.

Why would you do this? GDPR only applies to organisations!


Please ignore @Reiko9 he trolls all the Ring and Nest threads with this nonsense constantly.

Conversing with him just makes him double down so it’s best not to engage with him. If we ignore him hopefully he’ll just go away.

Whats wrong with battery power ?, I've got v1 and the battery lasts at least 5 months before it needs charging although i do often sit and think what i could have done with those 60 seconds i've just wasted .

Very good deal , shame it takes away the option of 3 easy pay instalments when you use the voucher code .

I don’t understand, wouldn’t it work out cheaper to buy the ring 2 and chime from appliance online for £118 inc delivery and buy the battery separate for £20 from elsewhere.

You can hardwire these too if you want.
What is QVC like for returns? The website seems to suggest a no-fuss 30 day returns - with just the cost of postage to cover?
I am tempted by this - but cautious in case it all does not work as expected...
I know if I order from amazon and it does not work out, they will refund no hassle...
QVC refund with no issue. It really is no quibble.

2 reasons..

1. if you wait then you might miss someone important at the door.
2. I don’t want wiring.
Don't forget to put up CCTV warning signs and probably a good idea to give your neighbors a GDPR contact email address too.
regular security holes being exposed and some scary stories of people having ring products hacked.. would suggest go in eyes open here

Out of interest, whats the delay time on these and is it dependant on different factors? I have a blink and by the time i’ve got to the door, theyve gone!

I have them already and there is a lag - We have slow broadband but not that slow. Also the door bell has to be pressed pretty hard.

My suggestion is you set the motion sensor so that will give you early warning.

Blink cameras (well the Blink XT) will only notify you once the motion capture has been completed. So if you have your recording time set to 20 seconds it’ll only notify after that time has elapsed.

The Blink XT2 has a beta version of the software that will notify you straight away if motion is detected.

My parents Ring 2 lasted about 1.5 months and there are email alerts when its low.

They preferred the battery over hard wiring due to the simplified setup and their hallway’s layout, just purchased a spare to allow for a relatively quick swap.

The normal Ring doorbells can ring an internal chime too.

I'd say the bright red lights on the cameras is obvious enough..
Mine, the battery lasts about a month, but unfortunately its not in a great stop for the WiFi (which apparently uses more battery), Ring did send me an extra battery for free when i asked about the discharge rate it.
Also to acess video footage no-live you have to sub, (lowest is £30 a year) after the first 30 days.

£25 a year. It's only £30 if you pay monthly.

Ah I thought it was £3 a month, with a discount to £30 when i checked it last time. Not sure why i thought that now. Maybe i was sloppy and read it in Euros.

It's been £2.49 / £24.99 since it's inception so perhaps you did.
I originally got a similar deal from QVC last year for ring 2 and chime pro and battery about £166. I snapped the plastic cover and qvc didn’t want to know had to phone ring for a free replacement cover. After a few months i got fed up with signal dropping as it can only operate on 2.4ghz. Ring offered me the pro which was £30 difference which offered better signal with 5ghz freq. personally i prefer the pro over the RDB2
Heated, Ordered lets see ...
