What are the security features around someone stealing the device from your front door? Really my only worry with some of these bells.

Also some of the cheaper (read: Chinese) video bells can take up to a minute to ring your phone, does the chime on this ring as soon as the doorbell is pressed? Regardless of how long it takes the app to ring.

And does this record who rings the bell on file for later (in case you miss the door)?

Would be willing to jump on it at this price, seems quite decent.

Tempted but going to wait for the Nest Hello
You have to buy subscription to store/retrieve video on top of expensive initial outlay
Waiting on the ring pro to come down in price can’t justify the £200+ they sell a
We have a ring door bell and live on a very busy road. I am sure it has a guaranteed if it's stolen it is replaced free of charge( need a police report number).The bell is only as good as your internet connection. I have Been a few houses away and not got a connection but been abroad and spoken to the postman outside our house! The subscription costs about £3 per month which enables you to save the recordings and forward them on( email,What's app etc)
Good price.
Cheaper and comes with the Wifi extender included as well:

isn't that just the first generation one? I think the OP's offer is gen 2 which has higher resolution camera and removable battery

I think you are right although looking at the finer details there does not appear to be a perceivable difference in quality between the two. Only the removable battery which is more convenient.
Monthly subscriptions for a doorbell??? What is the world coming to?

Except the sub is not for the doorbell is it.

It is for the storage of the videos.
Can it be set-up to record to a NAS?

hi the ring door bells are brillant if for get one that is not faulty.the chime rings within 1 second of door bell ringing but as another person below has stated it really does depend on your wifi connection.the app is quite slow to load when the doorbell is pressed and can take upto 2 minutes to load. the app records everything and stores it for upto 6 months and then automatically deletes after that but you can download them or upload to facebook etc. as for the recording it is £25 per year.
there is a lifetime guaranttee for the device if it was ever to get stolen and you will need a police crime ref and report in the event of a claim.i think they cover the theft part because the person who steals it will be captured on camera. as for the app i connect via 4g on my phone when i am away so if anyone walks on my property it will alert me even below they ring the doorbell.

I would watch this review first as it may answer most of your questions

also I’m sure they replace it free of charge if it is stolen but I could be wrong though

huge difference in quality between the two, 720P and 1080P the picture quailty is massive, I've had both.
don't believe the picture quality shown on the adverts and the website, these images are 'doctored'

I had one from Amazon but sent it back, poor pixelated picture, I have a decent upload speed but it still wasn't good enough, the bell would work better with a buffer memory but this is not available.

Also the footage captured is a round fish eye effect, understandable with the lens but the images used for advertising and on their website don't look anything like this.

They only replace it once! Oh well that's useless. Also I have heard lots of problems with there being a delay in ringing the device so it's just more of a faf than it should be.

That's pretty good for a company to replace it once if stolen. Not many companies will do that but expect you buy another replacement out of your own pocket. I would put some panels up clearly pointing CCTV is in operation 24/7 on the property but even that's no guarantee if you lived in a area, it's worth considering getting a proper CCTV system & catch the little . You could move on but will most likely cost you far more to move elsewhere, right? You can always removed these when you move on since it's not complex & simple to remove. The issue with delay ringing can always be improved but most likely will eat more power at the expense of replacing batteries more often. These can do N standard speeds but does it really need AC standards WiFi on these? I'm sure they have optimise the best scenario on it's design features but don't expect it to go overboard outside the features what it do best unless you pay more for it. Don't forget it all 3 Ring Doorbells relies wholly on WiFi so make sure your own setup is up to scratch in the 1st place. If you don't want that, go for Ring Pro with more extra features that comes with it's own transformer to fix & power permanently. It won't be one size fits all as everyone lives in different types & layouts of homes. It's kinda trial & error with these but asking the Moon On A Stick is a bit too far. If you want the best of the best then maybe the Doorbird would be better but expect deep pockets.

I watched that video before I bought my Ring video doorbell and it put me off at first. I risked it and bought one anyway. So glad I did. From a security perspective it's great. Any movement approaching my house, or even going past my house, is recorded.

Just a few minutes ago my wife messaged me and asked me to check who knocked on our door (they didn't ring the bell) at approx 18:30 yesterday. I opened the app on the phone, quickly checked the time stamped recording and watched the video. It was a fundraiser.

Earlier on today, the app alerted me that my doorbell was ringing. I opened the app and watched the person live while talking to him. It was a UPS delivery. I asked him to leave the package at my back door. This meant he didn't have to go knocking on my neighbours' doors or return the package to the depot.

The video quoted above, which shows the Ring video doorbell in a bad light, is not a true reflection of the product. Perhaps that was an earlier firmware version (there have been several updates), or perhaps there was a poor internet connection. I thoroughly recommend the Ring video doorbell. Mine is the version 1. It costs £24.99 to record the videos, which are then accessible via mobile app or website.
Why is this cold?
