Still well overpriced !

I have the original v1. Next door got broken into in the summer and the guy was staring straight at my doorbell for around 30 seconds wondering if it's a camera :). I gave the footage to the police and he got 3 years last week. colnbrook.info/man…ry/. I imported mine from America due to it not being available in the UK when I bought it. Cost me around £220 plus duty at the time, but I'd say it's paid for itself.

No you don't HAVE to buy the doorbell,and this deal is £152.09,not £180.

Why are you asking if you leave it outside the front door ? It wouldn't be much good on the inside of your property would it.

Strange why so many people are worried about a doorbell being taken,yet people are more than happy enough to leave their car worth thousands of pounds parked OUTSIDE of their garage,and how many cars get stolen each day ? bet it's far more than doorbells do,and a car you have to pay extra to keep it insured,where this doorbell is covered at no extra cost.

I have one of these - you DON'T need an electrician at all - battery operated - mine lasts approx. 6 months on battery power before it needs re-charging - spare batteries are £20 so you can have one charged ready to go - you DO need a good wifi upload speed at your front door and may need a wifi extender or access point nearer the doorbell if your router is far away.

But otherwise - it's all good.

You can see and talk to anybody at front door from anywhere in the word and pretend your home - it also detects "motion" at your front door even if bell is not rung.l

Recommended.

Takes around 15 mins to install and connect ;-)

Amazing bits of kit. With or without cloud service.

Still well overpriced !

Very tempted...

Have version 1, very handy piece of kit.

I was looking at this previously, didn't the others also offer the chime?

Don't forget the hidden costs of the app service and an electrician if you don't have power supply to bell

Best other deal I've seen is the doorbell plus chime at Argos for £189.99 - it was briefly at £169.99 there, which I think was caught by another contributor. Most other places seem to price at £179.99 without the chime

The camera is outside? Somebody can take it, no?

Yes, but you would have a recording of them stealing it.

Hi Dave

Not sure I agree mate. I got mine recently from Argos with the Doorbell 2 and chime and I have had nothing but grief.

1st. Connecting to WiFi, yep you need a strong signal so had to buy a repeater but even then with a strong signal still drops out even splitting the channels.

2. Battery low after 2 weeks but I put that down to a lot of testing but I doubt I'll get 2 months out of one charge.
3. Doorbell rings go to swipe on app and I can't answer and this is using a Moto Z top of the range phone.
4. If you need to change anything on the settings you have to be by the bell and take the cover off which has a specific screwdriver and screw, lose it and guess what, you're screwed.
5. Their support is rubbish

I wish I had returned the rubbish back to Argos and I'm going to see if I can but I really need it to work as I do a lot of ordering on line and handy for instructions to delivery guys.

There's a smart one on John Lewis with 2yr guarantee

Only if you pay the extra for cloud recording. Otherwise the footage doesn't store.

Hi bot
Thanks for your comment

I have the Ring Pro and cannot praise highly enough. It’s hardwired hence no battery issues. The motion zones are fantastic, never had any false alerts. My WiFi isn’t that great also, I get about 25MBPS. No lag whatsoever between someone pressing bell and alert on iPhone, in fact I know before they even press as motion kicks in!

Don’t believe any of the negative reviews, I think they apply to the battery versions, or areas with very poor home broadband, that’s hardly Rings fault.

Do you get both bell things in the picture?

No idea what the push button thing even is. It has no camera with it so I don't see its use?!
Ring 1 user here, very happy and tempted by this for a second wouldn't even use it as a doorbell purely motion detector it's that good

I've googled and nowhere shows the 2 units unless it's the extra faceplate you get. It's cheaper I think if you shop around.

Create your own with a raspberry pi 👌

No worries - I had exactly the same question!

Excluded from promotion discount codes. Shame as I would have bitten with an extra 15% off !

And you get a lifetime free replacement if someone stole it.

I think you're spot on, it must be the faceplate.

Can u not record to a computer or nas?

I hate all these subscription based services now, they all add up!

Why would anybody want to take a doorbell that would be no good to them ?

If anybody was to take it then you would report it stolen and then the doorbell would be blocked from being used when the thief goes to register it online,which you have to do to make it work,also the doorbell sets your precise location of where it's registered/being used to so they would be giving away their location.

Also if anybody was daft enough to take something that would be no good to them,then Ring replace it for FREE as long as the crime has been reported to the police.

For those of you on the fence (or with an existing Nest setup), don’t forget the Nest Hello ships in late January.

You get two faceplates, a silver and black.

In fairness to thieves tho the thief probably doesn't know all that. You are totally correct though, no doubt
Edited by: "josh971" 5th Nov

Also if you have cloud service, it will record the thieves taking it and maybe a face or two if available.

To be fair it is primarily a motion sensor and CCTV foremost,then an intercom, then a doorbell.. the CCTV, motion sensor and intercom and doorbell are of course outside. It also has doorbell functionality as well and combinations between the four functions.

For example. I use the windows ring software on my cheap windows tablet for live 1080p CCTV functionality, as well as an intercom system. Also motion sensor tells me when I get post. And when the parcel delivery comes and they love to play ring and run. I can quickly tell them I am coming to the door.

It is unfair to say this is expensive. If you were to add all these things up they would still cost a decent amount. This also has a subscription cloud service so motion activity and doorbell are recorded that costs £20 ish a year.
I think it's fair enough. For an all in one solution it's decent.

The ring will work with an existing digital type doorbell as well , it does ring on mobile phones as standard if you wish. I have it setup on both my wife and I mobiles and we can see and talk to whoever is at the door even when we are out.

I have had one of this since earlier in the year, charged it first time , great did exactly what it said on the tin, went to recharge and nothing, since had seven of these (replacements) and all the same issue, also Ring has taken an extra 2 payments from my bank account claiming they hadnt received the items i had sent back.... make your own mind up but mine is going in the bin
