From £2.50 per month, depending on how many devices you have.

More info en-uk.ring.com/pag…ans

Use mine all the time, great for keeping an eye on things and used it quite a bit when out and about, i.e when we have a delivery.
Amazon have the same deal or for an extra £10 you can get the chime as well. Chime usually costs £30 on its own. Item is due to be delivered in a few weeks if you are able to wait to save some cash.
If you want a faster response time and better picture quality have a look at the Eufy door bell, reviews are miles better with no subscription, obviously down to personal preference..
Iscott29 can’t find on amazon at all have you a link ?
also get this with chime direct from ring for £99 much better deal
for a house with loads of Alexas, and a few mobiles, dont think I need a chime as door rings just goes straight to those devices

I don't have any lag with mine at all on sky broadband or through mobile on 4g. Admittedly on the 4g takes a second to connect but nothing that's caused me an issue.
Anyone aware of any deals on the doorbell 3? I'm after that one for the improved motion detection however missed out on the Costco deal with chime

The Ring 3 has no better motion detection than the Ring V1. The Ring Pro is the only one which allows you to draw your own motion zones.

That said Ring doorbells seem to have implemented person detection across the range which greatly improves things.

I have just had a thought. When I ordered this amazon has split the door bell and chime into 2 separate orders, the chime shows as £24.33 and the doorbell as £74.67. If you dont need the chime you could simply return the item thus getting the doorbell for £74.67!
Just purchased on Amazon £99 quid bargain 🏼

Are you sure? I was only going based off this link: androidcentral.com/rin…l-2


In link above it said for the doorbell 3 "better motion detection, and improved compatibility with faster, modern Wi-Fi networks", under pros it states Adjustable motion zones, I dont believe the 2 has that..

The Gen 2 definetely has adjustable motion zones, installed one two weeks ago and can adjust the zones in the app.

Adjustable motion zones and being able to customise your own motion zones is two totally different things. The Ring V1 through to the Ring 3 Plus all have very similar motion detection settings and setup. The Ring Pro and the Ring floodlight cameras (essentially only the hard wired devices) have the best motion detection. I assume proper customisable motion zones requires too much battery.

Below are images of the motion settings for the Ring 3 and then the Ring pro. As you can see there is a massive difference in being able to draw your own motion zones and it cuts down massively with false notifications.

It still sounds like 3 is improved, e.g:
yoursmarthomeguide.com/sma…lus
Motion DetectionThere are two differences with the motion detection capabilities of the Ring 3 and 3 Plus compared to the Ring 2. First is that the zones of the Ring 3, although preset, can be adjusted. This means the user can manually move them around to suit their front doors view and ignore unnecessary alerts. The Ring 2 has preset areas that can simply be turned on or off, without andy adjustment.

The Ring 3 versions also near motion detection which works in the closest area to the doorbell. This is between 5 and 15 feet, in addition to the 15 to 30 feet zone. The older Ring 2 is limited to the 15 to 30 feet zone.


if that is accurate I think 3 would be the one for me

It may be marginally better but depending on how far your front door is from the street, foot flow past your house and your neighbours boundary you could still get a fair amount of false notifications.

Hmm thats not ideal, wanted to use it for security and only be alerted when someone is on my driveway, needs to be battery powered too..
I wouldn't recommend this. My ring does not pick up masked people yet it picks up moving cars.

Unfortunately all battery powered video doorbells need to conserve battery which means they have to compromise a bit on some features and they’re not quite as good as their hard wired counterparts.

Its very confusing, Gen 2 also lists having near zone motion feature which I thought was a benefit of doorbell 3?!, my driveway is 5 metres and near zone range is 3.5 to 4.5 metres so think that would work.

Looks like 3 has Person detection, thats the only improved feature on motion detection I can see.

Gen 2 has the person dection also to try conserve battery life by only setting motion off when it dectets a person, this feature can be disabled also.
