Hmm, it's cheaper but not a massive bargain. Was £125 on prime day.


Oh those time machines are hard to get hold of nowadays though.....

If you can get wire over there, go with Ring Pro - looks better due to a slimmer design.
Maybe a dumb comment...but what features does it have to stop someone with a screwdriver stealing this from your front door? :/

Not much although it does have some protection in its removal. Also the person removing it would be vidoeod carrying out said offence - Ring would disable it permanently and give you a new one. Not much incentive for a thief.

You're right, for all those who have a very specific emergency and require a doorbell right now, this is a good deal, for the other 99.9% of us, it might be worth waiting.
i dont have a wired doorbell and bought the doorbell pro on prime day. is it better to get that hard wired in or am i better off getting one of these?
Unless you need it urgently I would wait for Black Friday, these will go much cheaper then

You can have this one both wired or with a battery, it does both.

hmm...i will return the pro version and get this then...probably over paying around 20 - 30 pounds but no time machine!
very poor item, got mine for £129 and refunded last week, had it for 3 weeks and it drop the wifi almost daily we even missed delivery and we where at home as it did not even ring due to no wifi. I have fibre optic broadband and IP Hikvision camera installed outdoor for over a year and had never ever dropped wifi. bought the ring chime pro and installed as close as possible to the front door and it has not made any difference. My advise if you can hold one for the Nest Hello to drop in price or Hive who are working on a similar doorbell is better than spending any money on the ring doorbell. read reviews this is not a one off experience
Whats the difference between this and the Ring RVD2 Video Doorbell 2 with Chime Pro on Amazon for £159?

I'd say the Amazon deal is better as the Doorbell is the same but it includes a Chime Pro which is Chime but with a built in Wi-Fi extender.
I got this when it was on offer at John Lewis a while ago now - absolutely love it...brilliant first line of defence and I can view who’s at my door even when laying by the pool on holiday - like I am right now writing this!!!

Our chime is plugged in directly next to the front door (inside obviously) and adjacent to where the WiFi router sits anyway, so no drop out issues for us..

I’ve had to charge the battery in it just twice in the last year or so, so quite good battery life too....I do find however that mine goes off with cars driving past more often when the suns shining right on the camera - but that’s just something I need to adjust I the settings...

All in all, VERY happy with mine!:D
Happy with mine too. I've got the original Ring which I've had for over three years now. Mine is hardwired to a Byron 776 bell with a built in transformer which means it's always powered and the ring light on the doorbell is on which is great at night.

Never had any dropouts whatsoever.
WARNING - I've been using this for past 2-3 months and agree with the above comment about poor performance. The lag on answering the door bell is extremely slow, as slow that in most cases person outside gives up. In some case the bell rings minutes after the bell button has been pressed which gets a little spooky. And then if you try opening the video intercom on your phone app, its horribly slow or fails to load. All these problems are due to poor WIFI signal since between the bell is on the outer side of the concrete wall.

I use business grade meraki access points and have 30+ happily connected WiFi devices. WiFi connectivity and signal strength outside the home is absolutely fine including cameras mounted on the outside side of concrete walls. The couple of problems I noticed with these bells a) Only support 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network and b) they are very poorly designed for the WiFi reception. I measured the signal strength where my bell is mounted by front door (outer side of concrete wall) is RSSI - 30-40 and the ring bell would only connect on RSSI - 60-70. The nearest access point is literally 4-5 meters away.

I opened a TAC case with ring who basically suggested many things (try using a chime pro, move access point closer, move the bell closer etc) however in the end agreed that bell is poor in signal reception and couldn't do anything. The only way I see an improvement in signal strength and as such performance is by installing an outdoor access point and keep the bell on the internal side of concrete wall. Even when the bell is sitting right next to wireless AP, I think the app can be improved to be a little more snappy to open video and intercom given that you've someone waiting on the other side of door.

I am now looking to return the bell + chimes and replace with another brand.

ps : The chimes aren't cheap especially if you need a few in your house.

Very have the Ring 2 and Chime Pro for the same price

very.co.uk/rin…prd
Had it since it was 125. If you can wait if not then not bad price.

Added a mains plug to power it for Live view, mains adaptor to back of the doorbell £15 from Amazon. And signal is 65 to 75 so not that great when it does go down to 60 I get instant notification. I tried what I could and it's not good especially as it's only 2.4ghz and restrained to channels 1 to 11. And if you have auto channel and it goes to 12 then you loose connection.

I set up manual ips and hate the restraint on the doorbell and my Virgin Hub, can't even change DNS. So will get like Asus or Netgear X4s.

When it does work I love it. Keep eye on my car. Most cases i love when someone comes to the door and rings the bell. Nice telling Johova witnesses no thanks over the intercom while I chill on the sofa.

Ring made me lazy.

Same price at Amazon but includes Chime Pro instead of standard Chime
