Information from Ring website regards subscription.

All Ring devices will operate without an additional fee or subscription. However, we offer optional Ring Video Recording Plans that cost a monthly or yearly subscription fee. Without Ring Video Recording, you will still receive alerts when visitors press your Doorbell or trigger the motion sensors in your device, and you’ll still get live streaming video and two-way audio, so you can see, hear and speak to guests in real-time, as the event is happening. However, if you don’t have Ring Video Recording and you miss an alert or a live event, you will not be able to review the video. Ring Video Recording will save all of your recordings to your Ring account for up to 60 days, and with Ring Video Recording, you can also review the videos, download them to local storage, and share them via social media, text and email.

Dont forget you need a subscription to store videos en-uk.ring.com/pag…ans or are there any hacks/hacked apps about that can bypass this?

The code also works on the ring pro with chime - 200 to 160. I went for over the two as it's smaller and better looking (in my opinion) although more expensive.

I have the same issue!
You won't be getting out of bed at all because you won't know they are there. By the time the app notifies you about their presence they will be long gone. Its a great idea but very hit and miss if it works. It was awful for me. Just be aware.

Have a look at
this....

I love my Ring Pro.
I have no issues with it, just ensure that you have a decent WiFi signal to the area it will be located.

Tip: if you are on Virgin media and have the hub 3.0 you may need to change the WiFi channel, depending on what it is set to. I think it has to be between 1 and 10!
Took me ages to figure out why it would not find it over the WiFi.

Almost every time there's a Ring offer somebody posts that video. That is V1; this is V2. Different product, and this offer includes a chime.

Yeah that may well be the case but I had the ring 2 and it was still a waste of time. I ended up missing parcels even though I was in due to the delay off the chime. A standard doorbell would have prevented this. All I could do was watch back the video clips of frustrated couriers, who left the parcels with neighbours or left a slip anyway. As I said, it's hit and miss, my experience was poor, others have had a good experience.

Shame. Mine works flawlessly. Maybe having a WiFi extender helps.
Be aware, there are a lot of functions unavailable in the UK with the ring items. More functions in USA so don't be fooled by USA youtube tutorials (like I was). Just bought floodlight cam and tried to link with Echo and firestick, all doable in the US but not UK. Also very hit and miss on detection and notification. I would imagine doorbell to have similar issues
Hi what’s the difference between this one and the Ring Video Doorbell. Also if we want to connect CCTV any tips on what cameras to buy? Thanks
The major issue of the big delay between someone pressing the button and the notification coming through to your phone still exists with this (version 2) so can't be overstated, and isn't at all anything to do with weak wifi signal. I got rid of mine recently because it. The motion detection is handy in theory but 30 seconds of recording time isn't very useful in practice.

It's the same problem that occurs with laptop and phone and is down to settings. My emails come through seconds apart on my laptop and my phone, not always the same time difference buy sometimes up to 4 seconds.

I don't think we're talking about the same thing. It's not down to settings, it's the delay between the Ring doorbell sending the signal to Ring's server (wherever in the world that's located - not your wifi router) and then in turn being sent to your phone via the app. This delay on average for me was about 45 seconds, making it pretty useless because no delivery driver is hanging around that long.

as already mentioned this review is years old.

I’ve had the Ring version 1 for over three years and it's been brilliant. I don’t have any of the delays people talk about whatsoever. Took this video just now to show you. The two iPads are WiFi connected and the iPhone is connected to Three via 4G. The iPads get the alert first and the 4G iPhone a split second later.

That is exactly the hub I’m using. The only thing I have done is hard wired the Ring doorbell to the Byron 776 transformer with chime. The door bell rings like a normal “ding dong” one and it’s always powered so I never have to remove it to charge

Interesting, mine was powered by the battery, didn't want to drill holes and didn't have a socket close by.

It must be on individual cases as mine works without a problem.
It notifies my phone a split second after the Ring Chime goes off. When I click on the notification it takes about 5 seconds to connect to the video feed.
You can also reduce this time be enabling it to automatically connect to the video feed without having to click. This will speed up the whole process.

Just trying to give a balanced opinion. Just for reference, mine is the Pro version.

As in drill through the wall to put a power cable through. I drilled the wall to put the screws for the brackets in.

I installed it 2 days ago. You get 2 plates. One silver and one like a dark Moka type colour. It's not black, but looks better than silver.

I returned mine as I could not connect it to wi fi during the setup process. I have a VM hub3.0. I configured it to have a quest account on 2.4 g & Ch 9, but it would not connect. Spent 90 minutes with Ring support, but still unable to sort it. Tried on another different make mobile but still same problem. I had also tried ch1, 6 ,11 . If I had time, I would have tried a separate router with the hub to see if that worked.

Its unfortunate it did not work for you. Hopefully the information I have given will save someone else the same headache.
