RING Video Doorbell 2 & Chime Pro Wi-Fi Extender & Indoor Door Chime Bundle
Was looking for this bundle as did not want the pro hard wired version.
Can't seem this cheaper anywhere and the chime is the Extender version so even better range!

Which is better the 2 or pro? Or does it just depend on whether you want it hard wired or not?
What’s the likely hood they will throw in the Echo spot like the previous deal on Black Friday? Missed out on it!
Good deal, have some heat. Still only 2.4ghz for the extender though

Pretty sure quality is better on the pro but has to be hardwired. However the qualiry of the 2 is ace as well.
im sure they are the same mate with the only difference being the 2 is battery operated and the pro being hard wired

The 2 is f.ugly... The pro is the neatest looking out of all them.
If you live in the suburbs buy the pro.
If not the 2 will do.
The motion detection on the pro is considerably better and you’ll get far less motion false alerts.
I wonder if anyone can advise...

I want something like this, but it really needs to be on my driveway gate rather than directly outside the door (due to disabled dog going mental every time someone knocks on door - we want to try to minimise this so he does not injure himself!)

I am guessing that the range (15-20 meters from router in house to front gate) is going to mean these won't work? My phone will just about still connect to my Wifi at this range (signal is pretty weak tho), but given the reviews of people having connection issues when it is mere feet away, should I just forget this?

I guess the Pro is just hardwired for power, so this won't help the wifi range issue?

Can anyone recommend anything else that might work please?

Only difference is actually the look of the device. A lot more slender looking. Both are the same resolution and the same features.
Only note is.....
Pro is hard wire only.
Where the ring 2, you can either have hard wire or battery. With the battery you will need to charge it every 6 weeks or so. (this is my usage on a residential close)

So if you want the battery, no wires. Must be the ring 2.

If you never want to recharge the battery, it's either systems. Just the look is different. That's what your paying the difference for. Each to their own.

Sounds like you will need the ring 1 or ring 2 battery version. You can place this on the gate. In terms of it working. You need to see if a device can read your WiFi from your gate.

So, use your mobile (not going to be ideal, but worth checking). Take your mobile to your gate and check to see how strong the WiFi signal is to the gate. If you have a strong signal, then the doorbell should be fine.

If it's weak or there isn't any. You will need to use mains (power) and some WiFi extender. So devices that far from your home will read the signal.

The doorbell uses your WiFi to send the signal saying notification (movement) or someone activating your door bell. Once the WiFi signal picks it up, then sends to your Chime (door bell ringer) and your mobile/ alexa etc.

But if your gate is on a busy street, you will be getting notifications potentially all day. This would drain the battery quite quickly. You could switch this off and just have the door bell alarms.

Ok cool - cheers for the tips. So, I would need an outdoor wifi extender then by the sounds of it, as my mobile wifi signal is poor there. And yes, you are right that I would probably need to disable motion detection, but this would be fine...just door bell alarms is fine. Thanks.
Miss the deal that come with echo spot

Hey Jess

The difference is minimal the ring pro has a slimmer design and is hard wired and after watching a few review videos the qaulity is the same as the ring 2 which uses battery Abit more convenient if you don't want to pay for an install!
The shocking reviews put me off....can imagine it would be difficult to return to Currys as well, so might be better for me to get it off Amazon, in case it ends up simply not working, like it seems to for some people...

Yes just imagine the doorbell needs to connect to your house WiFi. When your mobile is on WiFi, the further you walk away from your house, the signal strength gets weaker before it disconnects. So a WiFi extender near the front of your house 'should' be sufficient. As long as you don't have a 50 metre plus front drive.
Anyone got one of these? Thinking about purchasing. Tia
