Great price - thanks
Surprised the offer is on for so long too.
I guess they might pull the offer once the HUKD'ers get on to it.
Don’t buy them. Posties don’t like em
Only downside to these is they are the size of a brick

How's your house when the wind really blows?
Anyone have any real life experience of owning one as opposed to they know of someone......
Be interested to hear an owners experience of how good/bad they are?

Thought about the Arlo Doorbell as own the Arlo Pro 2, but also interested in these ring doorbells.... cant decide as don't know anyone who owns either.

Why?


Probably because they are on camera when they knock once/if at all and then walk off when doing a delivery.
They're ok, nothing more than that really. The picture quality is ok, but until people get close they can be a bit blocky. Ive had the V1 and V2 and both struggle a bit with wifi if you have too many thick walls in the way. The app is quite good, I find alerts always happen when in at home, but can be slow to appear when I'm out and about on 3g/4g

Yup I have one, TBH its more of a gimmick for me than a useful addition, sure you can view the video on a TV etc. but we found the alerts annoying.
This may not be others experience but we found that most people recognised what it was straight away and hid their face or simply faced away from the cam...
On a positive though its very easy to install and setup, video quality is excellent day and night though a little laggy sometimes.

Are they worth this sort of cash? I would say no, not yet.
phunkee01/10/2019 12:22

Why?


Security wise they are pointless. Walking past and you hear someone say “yeah just leave my parcel at the back door”
easy target for theft really.

Also they generally don’t have time to stand and try talk to a doorbell speaker

But not bonkers to spend that on CCTV...not just a doorbell is it.
I disturbed burglars trying to get in the back door last Wednesday night. They were after my OH’s car keys. They’ve stolen 5 ‘high spec Germans’ to quote the police - in the area in the last 5 days. They said these are fabulous and a worthy investment so I will be checking this out. Thanks op x
Your looking at the wrong product if your thinking of this as a CCTV solution, you can get much much better than this for the cash.

What would you recommend? Serious question, I'm not really interested in a posh doorbell, but I am interested in a camera system.

Sorry I dont have an answer, I'm in the same boat as you. I need 2 cams and dont even know where to start looking..
I’ve just bought the eufy cam e 2 camera kit and it’s pretty good. Yes lots of alerts but you can dial down the sensitivity. No cloud storage/access fee as stores locally on SD card. Got mine for £279. Totally wireless and easy to set up

Search Hikvision cameras and a NVR

Do not waste money on a wireless cam setup.

The same relay attacks the thieves are using to steal cars will also use Jammers

It's part of their kit.

They will jam all types of WiFi/Network signals including wireless alarms and cameras as they rely on WiFi

Better off with a wired kit

Can pick it all up for around £130

You just need to plan where your cameras will go and how you will wire home to the DVR

They are simple to install and use

Thanks for the pointer, I'll look into it tomorrow, wired is definitely my first choice.
