Good deal for the pro version - very tempted at that price..been waiting for them to launch this model in the U.K.

I assume the cold votes are because people think this is the ~£120 gen 1 ring, but it's not. This one has 1080p vs 720 in the gen1, is smaller, and is designed for hard wiring rather than battery - all around better basically!

Have a bit of heat from me

I've had my 1st gen Ring for over a year now and still think it's a great bit of kit. Got mine hard wired too as it's just better that way. Unfortunately people don't bother to read about all of its features and benefits so vote cold.

Hot from me too.

Price point still for early adopters. Waiting for realism when competing products appear.:{

​100 quid of each device is likely funding the cheesy TV advert lol

Tend to agree competitors will drive price down, as for what it is the tech is nothing new - it's a wireless ip cam married to a button and an insurance policy! Sounds like a fun hack using a dash button though...

Are these more weather proof than the first 720 forst generation ones?

The first gen ones never really had issues with the weather as long as they were sealed in properly (i.e. apply sealant around the edges). The manual doesn't tell you to do it, but it's needed for the UK climate imo!

I ordered one of these in the end last night, arrived today. Looks an easy fit i'll get it done at the weekend...as I have a pre-existing hard wired bell I just need to swap the transformer out in the consumer unit, bypass the existing bell and attach the ring pro to the wall outside. Looks simple and no need to get a sparky in as long as you have a bit of common sense

I'm surprised with the cold voting, it was clearly a bargain for those who're after ring door bell. It's gone back to usual price now.

Surely this would stop the removal of the doorbell for charging purposes, maybe that's why it wasn't in the manual.

I haven't got the wired bell, do you think I would be able to do it all myself? Planning to do it this weekend.

It depends on whats in place at the moment. I've been able to do it myself as I have an existing mains-wired doorbell (just a normal one - not a ring). This means I can just replace the existing 8v transformer with the 24v one the ring requires and its fairly straightforward (cut power, remove consumer unit cover, remove existing transformer, insert new one, replace cover, turn on power).

If you don't have such a circuit already that you can replace then you really need to get an electrician in unless you are very confident with electrics as you'll either need to add a new circuit (which needs a part-p registration i.e. a certified electrician) or you need to take a feed from a lighting circuit or similar which is legal..but not as safe/ideal.

@Paul yes you are probably right - had not considered that!

Check this out, wanted the Ring system and found this on HUKD and must say it seems to do all the Ring one does for a fraction of the price. Bought one and its tried and tested here.
