Hi Alexa ... Ring my doorbell!!

I was thinking about getting this until I realised that very few people actually ring my doorbell?!

Why would a doorbell need alexa support anyway????

Price hasn't updated but also on main site. Add to basket.

Read the reviews, it used to be the best of a bad bunch, now it’s just not that great for a lot of people, the US home automation groups really love to hate on the first generation Ring stuff, laggy Wi-fi being a major complaint that gets mentioned often. It could be simply poor set-up/signal, but generally speaking they’re technically proficient/skilled.

I have this, you dont need alexa support for it.

Have run one for about a year. It's excellent so long as you have decent wifi to OUTSIDE the front door

Higher resolution and the battery can be removed for charging

I know this comes with a battery. However, can this model also be wired into mains?

Yes. Battery just makes it more flexible in terms of install (it can be fully wireless).

Hardwired means you don't need to keep removing the doorbell to charge the battery. The Byron 776 wired door chime has a built in transformer and chime so will ring indoors too when the button is pressed.

Had mine for over two years and it's great, most of the issues are down to user error and poor wi-fi connections.

How much is the subscription? Do you need to pay that to see someone or is it just for saved videos of motion activity?

I hadn't even thought of that drawback, and just thinking about it, only about 20% of callers ring mine! Half of them tap lightly on the glass which I OFTEN don't hear

It's £3 a month or £30 a year. I think the first month is free. Without the subscription you won't be able to playback recordings from the cloud but everything else will work fine.

You do know this is NOTHING like a standard doorbell - we all have those already and my problem is it doesn't let me answer the door quickly enough as I am disabled, and the caller has left long before I get there

Not that obvious of you go onto various groups...

Most people don't realise that they are drilling into a very thick wall with wifi on the wrong side of it.

Yes I know exactly what it is I've had one for over two years now. You can hard wire it to the Byron bell/transformer so you don't have to take the doorbell of to charge it.

It's $3/$30 I'm not a lover of the subscription model but for the cost/convenience it provides its not too bad.

You do realise it notifies you if someone is outside (you can set the zone to cover your whole driveway basically if wanted) so it doesn't matter if they do the bell or walk up and knock or go to your window Ring will notify you.

Yes, that's' the problem I found using a camera and movement sensor that I don't want - every vehicle that turns round in the cul de sac, every neighbour coming home and every pizza leaflet delivery had me up and down like a yo-yo! only about 10% were actually linked with me - not to emntion cats and Foxes!

Looks good, also has night vision - however the bronze one is £135

Lol had to laugh at this because as much as I love Ring and I really do.. this is definitely the downside of it but I am lazy and just check on my phone 🙈

It works with motion as well and you can configure the motion zones, but the downside of that is sun in the summer can be a real pain or if you live very near a road.
Since using this many more people are ringing the bell than used to before

30 years ago, I would have been first on the list to buy one of these, a great boys toy - love them! BUT now I NEED something that would actually work quickly and effectively, the appeal isn't there because it's just a toy and I can view it in that light only. Shame :-(

Not sure where eBay pull their stock from but here is the link for the Argos site
argos.co.uk/pro…868

looks to be available everywhere in Argos
Amazon CS couldn’t tell me a stock date as I’d prefer someone to deliver So wondering if this is a last stock deal and once it’s gone there is no more as newer versions out now

The is settings to sort that " The motion sensor view is divided into 6 quadrants across its view. You can turn off those quadrants you don’t want to receive notifications from such as the one that is covering the street. You can also reduce the sensitivity from 30 ft down to 5 ft before you are notified.

You can also decide how often you want to be notified from light, standard and frequent to help you manage the amount of notifications."

Interesting site that...

"Notifications can be delayed up to 30 seconds at times"
"To recharge the battery you need to take the Ring down to plug it in to the USB cable"
"Need to pay $3 a month to store video to the cloud there is no functionality to store video locally direct from 1 May. There is no discount for having more than one doorbell"
"No internal house chime when using battery for power"
"It does not work with Windows, Blackberry or your PC"


It's not even a toy!

I have the ring 2. Have had it for 2 weeks and have contacted customer services about 6 times. Its a nice piece of kit it is buggy and they are pushing this subscription service whilst compromsing the quality of the app (according to long term users on reddit anyway).

As a standalone security kit its not great. I would get other security cameras installed because as you mentioned its subscription only to record, it only records 30 second clips even if there is continuous motion, among other minor niggles.

It does however work with Windows. There is an app in the store for it. It works as well as the phone apps.

It is however very useful as an intercom with a camera to see who is at the door, and useful for parcel deliveries, speaking to the driver to drop parcel off elsewhere if you're not home etc .

6 quadrants... 6... quadrants...

I've got the Ring Pro... In a house that is fully smart/automated, the Ring Pro and Nest are the two least exciting "toys".

I'm on 80/20 FTTC with 3 Ubiquiti Pro AP's providing my Wifi, with the IoT stuff running on their own VLAN. The Ring is approx 3m from an AP, so wifi is definitely not an issue, yet when it comes to using it/answering the door, the connection back to the Ring is always poor at best.

I have one... I think it’s awesome!! .

Interesting as I've got a similar setup - also running UAP-AC Pros. Currently just 2 VLANs - one for guests, one for everything else.

Have you found that most of your smart home devices support VLANs then? I assumed a lot of them wouldn't as they have cheap embedded network interfaces.

Can you live feed and does it motion record on a memory card?

I have a similar setup - I assume he just created a separate SSID for IoT items and that then gets tagged into the chosen VLAN and he has a router able to split it out and keep it separate.

if anyone is looking for a newer model or other ring cam products, you can try 3ukring50 which gives substantial money off.

Im just trying to think of the things that rely on network and it’s mainly Hue, Ring and Nest. None have had VLAN probs. They’re mainly port based VLANs as opposed to tags. Ive got an L3 Switch (some Zyxel thingymajig) and Draytek 2860ac. Everything else I use is Zwave I think.

I have everything (where possible - not RING!) looped back to openHAB.

It’s a massively over complicated home-user environment, but I’m a techie.

I guess my point is. Even with best intentions and the optimal configuration, I was quite disappointed with the Ring. To the point where I’m actually embarrassed to answer it when it rings!

My experience and everything else aside, I don’t think the Ring has been this cheap before, so based on that it’s actually a bargain. Which is what this site is about.
