Hold out for the Nest Hello which from what I've read, is being reviewed very well in the states.
Tempted but I'm personally holding off purchasing at the moment in order to see where their new owners (amazon!) take this. I expect it to become even cheaper and much better integrated into Alexa. Time will tell...

This one is wired, more compact and in my opinion - looks better.

The wired or pro versions are the only ones to get in my opinion

As the non wired versions only trickle charge the battery so whenever it's used even slightly it uses a certain percentage of the battery and if using for live CCTV which it can do, because the other versions work off the battery, they will discharge in hours. It charges at a rate around 5% per day. However when used slightly it could consume around 5% per day just on basic rings so keeping the equilibrium. Which is why the battery can quickly be removed and charged via the usb port.

If only using very slightly and rarely for video during the day the normal version should be fine.
If you want to use it to it's potential , get the pro. Who doesn't want CCTV for free? I wanted to use a spare tablet for that reason but I have the regular version and the idea got dumped, still using my old CCTV which needs upgrading. I couldn't give it back because this crucial bit of information was missing from any documentation and when I did finally learn of this this , it was too late to return and get the pro.

How easy are these to fit if your existing doorbell is not wired in?

Just get a 24V mains transformer and plug it in and run the wires to the door. The majority of reports of poor usage are due to underpowered doorbells.

The other important part is to have a very good WiFi signal and upload speed where the doorbell is.

Very tempted by this but also want to know what Amazon does, also a bit put off by the £2.50 subscription for what is a little bit of file storage etc
This bell has been amazing for us. Recommend to anyone. Just ensure you have someone competent to install.
Had the original ring Doorbell since 2015 then upgraded to this Dec 2017 had little to no issues. Most issues were resolved by the app being updated.

One of the best purchases iv made in terms of smart gadgets. I have Alexa in kitchen we hardly use, hue bulbs novelty kinda worn off, tp link smart plugs that just stay on.

Atleast with this Doorbell it gets used daily. If I had pre-wired ethernet I would have looked at getting the elite version which I think is PoE

Agree .... there should be a option to use any iCloud provider (Google drive, Apple iCloud, One Drive etc.)

So if you’ve got a plug socket quite near the front door, it’s basically a plug and play job?

You do realise that most cloud providers run on AWS? Ring was probably already hosted on AWS before Amazon purchased it.

They have no interest in your footage it's just another step in the home security market. R&D can now be ramped up and integration with existing and newer products will be on the horizon to compete with Nest, Arlo, Blink etc

They can all be wired, the battery gives you additional option, not taking away. I have the ring standard and wired
When we moved into our new build property we requested a wired doorbell so we could have this fitted (for power)

Its absolutely fantastic and works as a security camera also, so when I’m away working, my partner can look on the camera when the door rings. I can even look at the camera while in Holland

Please note though, you do however have to fit the transformer which boosts the voltage going to the doorbel, the power going to a normal doorbel is not enough.

We have used the mic and camera a good few times with deliveries, you also receive a notification pretty much immediatly regardless of where you are,and you can speak to the person at the door.

There is a subscription based option which allows you to keep recordings which is only £3 a month, but this is not a requirement

Great piece of kit!

I bought the Ring 2 doorbell and it's one of the best kit I have bought. So easy to set up. I screwed it onto my uPVC door, which was no problem.

The Ring 2 also came with the wedging kit which helps angle the camera. There was slight problem with the video recordings initially. Contacted Ring customer service through their chat and forced through an update and it has been no problem since.

I also bought the chime and contrary to reviews I heard there has been no lag in chime and notification to my mobile. The app loads up quick and speaking to the person at door is really useful and seamless.
Been thinking about getting some form of CCTV for a while and this is very good at this price point. Thanks for the post
Are you able to record to local storage with this (or with the Nest Hello)? Either officially or through a third-party hack.

I don't want to rely on a cloud service staying live for the next 5 years.

No you can't record to local storage, cloud sub is £30 for the year. Prices for Nest Hello are more.
When these are working correctly they are great, but be warned you must have at least 2mbs upload speed, so basically high speed broadband, standard broadband is not good enough, I can only get standard broadband in my area and this would not allow my ring to work.
Do a speed check first.

Good price. It’s just the extra subscription charges that still put me off.
Would this go over your existing door bell fit over?
Is there anyway I can add this to my hikvision NVR for viewing on the app with my other hikvision cameras ? Thanks !
Sure this is £97+VAT in Costco if you have access.

You'd have to remove the existing doorbell/pushbutton unit and put this in its place.

Probably not, can't see anyway you would be able to 'catch' the stream that the hikvision app would be able to use.

I paid 240 for this just over two weeks ago for use at our new home. I didn't have a mains powered door bell so followed a video on YouTube to use a 24v 1.5a AC adapter from which you can run regular doorbell wire to the Ring doorbell. I've got the adapter sitting plugged in under the stairs, very straightforward.
I've got an arlo q plus coming from Amazon warehouse today as it has free cloud storage. Luckily snapped up when priced lower than the non plus and 20% of warehouse worked on it.

This is the only ring model I'd consider acceptable visually outside my house, and I'd tried the one Costco sell previously and it went back the minute I opened the box and saw how huge it was!

I have a full function hikvision NVR but like the idea of redundancy; my ideal would have been a high quality door peephole camera but I don't like the messy look on the inside that'll come with it. I've got a doorbell but rather know someone is there before they get to it.

I was holding out for the Amazon cloud cam which also has free storage but not sure when or if that's on its way here.

definitely good price, there seems to be some integration with alexa. looks better than the ring2. I have a wired bell installed would be straight forward to replace it with this one? some advice would be highly appreciated. thanks

Wouldn't surprise me if the subs become part of prime at some point
Had this for over 1 year - it's been one of the best purchases I've made. Motion alerts tell me when anyone is in the driveway and the cloud storage is great. No problems at all so far.

Also, being able to tell the delivery man where to leave the package has saved so many trips to the local depots!
