Temporarily out of stock, but you can still purchase at this price - they usually come back into stock quite regularly. Cheapest it's been on Amazon.

I have a Ring Doorbell 1 (720) and a Ring Doorbell 2 (1080)

I am also disabled and it's a lifesaver for me.............

First do a wireless speedtest on a 2.4ghz network outside your home with all windows and doors closed at the point where the bell will be installed.

If you get an UPLOAD speed of 3 meg or more then proceed to buy one (they state 1 meg - but in real world it needs more)

Both the 1 and 2 work on re-chargeable batteries - the advantage of the 2 over the 1 is that you can pop the battery out and put a "spare" one in whilst the 1 needs you to remove the whole unit from the wall to bring in and recharge it - you only have to do this every few months so not a huge hassle.

Video Quality on the 2 is better - but not by much.

You get 1 month free cloud access/recordings - and then it's £3 a month - BUT this also includes lifetime protection - if it's stolen - send Ring a crime ref number and they send you a brand new unit.

Any questions - fire away.

Be aware that the Ring Wifi devices potentially have security flaws (although they have since been fixed with firmware updates)

And also something of a poor history of security generally

£73 using the Amazon warehouse deal



What is that all about?

qwales5 m ago

What is that all about?

Go to new and used offers and select a used option sold by Amazon for £91(used - very good ) . They are currently running a promotion of 20% off on warehouse deals which takes the price to £72

If I was a thief and saw one of those these, I’d think there’s someone who’s not at home a lot of the time as I guess that’s the reason the majority would buy this for?

I think the second version of this is supposed to be a lot better. It looks like its twice the price of a warehouse one tho. Good find.

If you can see it it can see you and when you approach record to the cloud... People with these are likely to have other devices that alert if someone comes home at an odd hour, maybe some cameras. They are likely tech savy steal my phone it can be tracked. Enter and I can set the hover on you. etc.

or someone who lives alone and doesn't want to answer the door to an unknown person? burglars tend to take an unanswered door as a sign of nobody being home, so gone are the days of just ignoring it... you may find a nasty person standing at your back door minutes later, at least with these you can put enough doubt in the burglars minds to move on to another house! also the cctv quality on these are amazing... better than most shops have! I encounter burglary victims daily and these devices are brilliant for assisting with police investigations as the motion sense means they unwittingly capture incidents!... although I appreciate you have to pay a yearly extra for the 'recording' service! just another perspective.

It's also to avoid opening doors to door sellers and church people coming with leaflets. Also handy when you are upstairs doing something and postman comes and he wait only 10 seconds before pissing off. On top of that you can see if you missed parcel or where it was left for you (which neighbour). It's well worth price paid.

yes exactly - have you been to my house ? ;-)
but to be fair also many many houses are empty during the day, working age families with both in a couple at work etc , hence I dont think a Ring doorbell gives too much away.

Thanks OP good find but I am now £65 lighter than I expected to be (Warehouse deal)

These require a monthly cloud subscription for full functionality.

Sorry people that own them. Is there a way to make a chime come out of speakers connected to chromecast audios, an Echo dot or Google home? Also can you use ifttt to make your Hue or yeelights flash if someone approaches front door or rings bell?

Has anyone had the Ring doorbell and the 2 version and advise if the 2 is worth the extra?

Also, does the warehouse deal happen automatically or do you need some code?

Look under the used section. Add one to basket which is from the Amazon Warehouse seller. Discount applied at checkout. Looks like they're all about £94 so £75 after discount.

Are these worth £75 (warehouse deals) I want a new doorbell and the video function could be handy.

Being disabled I have looked long and hard at various solutions for the problem of not being able to get to the door in a reasonable time, and all of them are BADLY flawed. I can see unwanted callers with a webcam and a usb extension cable or an IP camera and tell them to sling their hook from behind a closed door although I have given up on that too. At least that means you can prove what they were up to - but do tell me how it stops the postman/delivery leaving? It happens all the time to me - eg. I had a delivery man the other day who knocked, and walked straight off within 2 or 3 seconds. From demos and reviews it is clear this won't stop that either, mainly as they take FAR too long to connect. If it was a normal situation I could run down and shout after them but as I can't, they would still be off and round the corner before I could respond (fortunately that day someone else was home!).

Hard wired solutions look far better (and are much cheaper), but awkward to install (especially with my front door frame) and even give the option of a door release; but even if you don't want or need the remote/distant functionality of the Ring device, they have major drawbacks too, which is precisely why I haven't bothered - up to now it is just a toy not a working solution to real problems :-(

You can speak to them and ask them to wait a minute until you will get to door or ask them to leave parcel with exact neighbour. That's what we do
Delay is usually caused by poorly Wi-Fi signal near front door. Just get a repeater for 10-15 quid and plug somewhere near Ring doorbell

I have got great wi-fi, on both bands, but repeaters again mean more junk hanging out of the wall!
The reviews I have read talk of upwards of 10 seconds for it to even connect! :-(

Lots of different factors to take into account. The only way you'll know for sure is if you get one and try it. If it doesn't suit your needs, send it back.

Mine is hard wired and with a good wi-fi signal, my delay is usually a few seconds.

Another one with Subscription. Cold

So does the one from warehouse include Ring's lifetime theft replacement warranty?

You can't really stop humans being humans. I'm not disabled and I've been in and they've literally rang the bell dropped the parcel and gone, so they weren't going to wait for someone to answer, they assume it's the daytime no one in do a runner. This really is useful if some one comes to the door and waits and you can speak to them using your phone, if the person decides to ring and go then you can't do much about it.

Also if some one steals it then I imagine it can't be used as it has to be activated against an account so I'm led to believe, meaning they can't just take it from your account and put it on there's.

It’s a good deal but out of stock and customer services were less than helpful when I called they said that I could pre order but couldn’t say if would be delivered before Xmas as no stock visibility on the system. It’s end of life and they have done it to me before allowed me to pre order and then just before Xmas cancel saying no more stock.
Argos are matching their price and seem to have stock as I could reserve so will get there

I have owned one for a couple of years. I have seen people walking down my footpath, see the bell and turn around and leave. Had a guy on Friday who knocked instead of ringing the bell. As it records based on movement I still got a nice record of him. The device is far from perfect - connecting to my phone can be slow sometimes so I do sometimes use the peep hole for speed, but for me its a really good thing to have especially at this price. I would recommend getting a chime as well though so that will add an extra £25.

Well my point is, there's no point stealing it I would think if I'm right. Then again there's more idiots than non idiots so it will happen.

This is great price but for me, it was seriously flawed. Had it swapped twice and eventually got a refund from RING direct (bizarrely... even though we purchased through Amazon) as they couldn’t solve the problems.

Ended up spending money on wi-fi extenders that RING recommended. Nothing fixed it. The doorbell just fell off the wi-fi within an hour or so and stopped working.

Can take too long after pressing the button for the alert to show up on your phone.

Also... if you’re in a noisy area, the person at the door can’t hear you over the built in speaker.

Sure we just had a bad experience but maybe worth bearing in mind.

Is the pro better at £199?

I love mine. We use TP Link Plugs and a TP Link Wifi Extender and have no issues whatsoever.
