£100 doorbell.

What a time to be alive!

A video that i made to answer people's question about delay from pressing the bell to it coming through to a device -

I've mentioned this before, but just in case people haven't seen it.

"if" you want to hard wire the ring doorbell, you can use a wired door chime transformer like the Byron 776 and wire it to a mains plug.

That way:

1). Your Ring doorbell will always be wired and you won't have to take it off to charge the battery.
2). The white light around the button will always be illuminated (this is only the case when it's mains wired)
3). The Byron 776 will chime indoors when the Ring doorbell is pressed.
4). You don't need a Ring Chime & it's cheaper.

You're all wrong as it's actually called the "DPD delivery game".

These are excellent provided you already have a mains doorbell so you can use the wires to connect it to the mains which will provide a constant charge,if your running it just off a battery expect to be charging a lot.
The battery went down 30% just during set up before I fitted it!
Fitted mine two days ago and it’s brilliant,really impressed!!
Already ordered a Ring stick up cam to cover my driveway at the side of the house

I’m really impressed too. Bagged one the other day for £74 via Amazon warehouse.
You definitely (IMO) need the optional Chime, as most peeps I suspect have their phones on vibrate at home in the evening while watching tv etc, so easy to miss a call/motion alert.
I got the Chime the next day, v pleased so far.

This is the only fault I’d pick with this....why on earth does it need to “ring” outside when pressed and seemingly you can’t mute that even when you have the chime?!
Mine is connected to the mains so I’ve got the chime muted anyway and my original doorbell “ding dongs” when the bell is pressed but it would be great if the unit itself outside didn’t “chime” when pressed.
You can turn it right down but can’t mute it all together which is annoying.....or maybe I’m over thinking it

If you have the motion sensors turned on it picks up movement and alerts you someone’s at the door before they ring the bell!
This is a screen shot from my motion sensor alert of an earlier delivery,it activated well before the chap got to do door....

I'm guessing this is the 1st version as it doesn't say 'Ring Doorbell 2' even on amazon...
Anyone know for certain? Thanks

Yes it’s defiantly the first version,the Ring 2 has vents on the side of the doorbell unit.

The ring 2 is currently £149 in Currys, or £169 for ring 2 with chime pro, which is what I picked up yesterday

It's excellent isn't it.
I really could have done with this 2 weeks ago when the third person this year came to the door. I saw them walk down the drive and heard my 2 quid doorbell but what the heck would I have done if I was in the next room!
I often wonder, what do people do without this? Especially those above who say they use in conjunction with another doorbell!

Holy craps, I just saw you need to buy a seperate item if you want a chime!

Na, running on battery is fine. Ring claim six months on a charge. I'd say more like three months. Still fine. Just remove, recharge and replace. Easy.

Before I had mine I would often have to make special trips to the sorting office or rearrange deliveries because I was out,where now if a delivery turns up out of the blue then I can ask them to put it somewhere where I know it will be safe,which is far safer than leaving a note on the door with instructions of where the local thief can find me parcel to.

That's just one example.How do you manage to see and talk to someone at your front door when you are out of the house ?

The the people who don't see the positives in these are people who don't often go out/don't have many people coming to their door,which is fair enough and this isn't a product for them.

Just read review of these, who'd have thought doorbells can do so much but simple compared to a security camera set up... wirelessdoorbellreview.com/pro…ro/

Bear in mind there is a 1.5Mbps broadband UPLOAD speed requirement. I'm on a non-fibre broadband connection and have upload speeds well under 1mbps so need to wait for my local cabinet to get FTTC before I buy one

Yes agreed mine disconnected the other day so just picked up my chime from maplin I reserved for £20.99

How come i made a video and posted it up to help other people out and yet people give it the thumbs down on YouTube.

I would genuinely like to hear from anyone who doesn't like it and to their reasons why,as I like to make the odd video to help others out and don't mind constructive criticism if i didn't do something right.

Personally I don'tsee what's not to like about trying to help other people out,very strange lol

Not really helping anyone it's what 15 seconds long and shows pretty much the same time to come up on your tablet using 4g and wifi.

People often raise the question on how long does it take from pressing the button until a phone/other device reacts on wifi or on 4G,as some people say that there is a massive delay (like 15 seconds or more) to the point the person who rings the bell has gone by the time the receiving device goes off.

This short video shows that isn't the case and I felt that it didn't need to be 15 minutes long when 15 seconds shows what you need to know.

How would you have done it ?

I'd also argue that it must help some people as it's flagged as the top comment.

How do you turn the Chime on the actual doorbell down or is that on version 2 only?
That's the thing I don't like it's loud and attracts attention to it.

A good price but it is around 3 years old now. Having said that ring.com still regularly update the firmware one these. Iv had mine for well over 2 years now and has saved having items redelivered if no signiture is required.

I am a amazon prime member and our delivery driver always seem to come as I'm getting back from school run.

Most times I can say il be there in a minute or leave it safe place.

It's fine mate,I asked for any criticism and that's what I got.

Heat added, though I’d be happier if they got rid of the fee for recording video. That’s the only reason I’ve not bought one uet
