Don't you have to power the ring pro?

My Ring 2 doesn't suffer fogging but it does suffer fake notifications and short battery life. The zone facility doesn't work as it should and still monitors and notifies on other areas excluded in certain cases, I confirmed this with Ring support.

Indeed there are - Ring are owned by Amazon and an Amazon employee has recently exposed concerns, not least because the doorbell and camera apps are sending data all over the place.

It's more the fact the app has all sorts of third party tracking stuff and is sharing data without explicit permission to do so.

Somebody may come and paint your front door, at the end, with all the HD now, I would like a nice view of your door. A bit of an obsession here. First hackers were watching you via your PC camera. Later the Russians and Chinese were keeping an eye on you via Alexa and Google. Now Amazon watches your porch. I don't even want to think what the Americans do. In the mean time, with all this big brother, terrorists are released from jail and hours later they carry attacks. I suggest we put curtains on the airplanes, as they can see my garden. Even my cat feels watched when she's using my garden for certain needs. Christ, have no privacy when I'm picking my nose...

I don't allow anything to "dial home" without permission I firewall all of these types on devices on their own network that has no access to rest of my home.

An easy way to monitor and control this if you don't want to go that far is to use Pihole or AdGuard Home.
Get some net curtains
Good deal. Might be possible to order the bundle, wait for the doorbell to arrive and then cancel the Echo if you don't want it. On the order email it has split the cost, £95 for the doorbell and £24 for the echo. Not sure as I intend to keep both but thought I'd mention it.
Worth checking the screwfix website as they have the same bundle at the same price, but choice of colours on the echo dot and they're in stock. I've just ordered from them.

"The rest of the world"? That's simply not true, you make it sound like it's literally an open device that anyone can see, which is utter rubbish.
The very slim likelihood that someone is able to watch world be limited to a minute amount of people.

Personally I never use my front door and the camera can not see any landmarks other than grass and a path that could be anywhere!
