Found 9th Sep 2017
Seen these a lot recently on hukd and just had a notification that the price had dropped.

Flash sale with 90 units left at time of posting.

I'm tempted but can't decide wether to just go for something like ring.

Cheapest I have seen any chinese ones

It's pretty simple. When a caller rings the bell with a decent wifi doorbell, it doesn't matter where you are as long as your smartphone is connected to the Internet it will call you on your phone, then you can actually talk with the person at the door. So if they're delivering something you can give them instructions where to put the parcel etc. You can't do that with your solution of using a dome camera.
I've had a Ring for about a year now and its brilliant. The bit that makes the ring great is the software and online storage that holds all the history. I doubt that a copy doorbell would have half-decent software to support it.

You can get a amazon warehouse Ring doorbell for £112.09 - worth every bit!

Looks like the Ring smart doorbell. Good copy though.

Does the bell work on a battery or does it have to be plugged into mains
Sub qty 10 reviews at PlayStore for the app plus the one comment sadly suggests it's trousers play.google.com/sto…ong
Ordered one, guess I'll find out!
I'd like to buy something like this for my elderly Mum. For an old bird she's quite tech savvy and has a tablet and iPhone so this or something similar would be ideal for her.

I wonder if I could also monitor the people ringing her doorbell via the App on my phone.

On the assumption the developers would not offer a facility to monitor 5 doorbells within one app: "Connect to 5 devices at the same time"

Yes I read that but do all 5 devices have to be on the same wifi network? I would be in my own house or on mobile data.

P2P connectivity suggests any access to source network, local or remote.
I've always thought that if you ring that doorbell and no one comes to the door, a crook would automatically assume nobody is actually at home.

Get a ring doorbell, I have them on several properties and they great quality.
I went with the newer version for a tenner more. Has a faster response time, better camera, and pir sensor so it records at movement near your door as opposed to someone having to actually press the button.
Does this also require a monthly subscription like the 'Ring' version?

"Ring" is the one that people always mention, and I'm sure it's very good, but surely - in 2017 - there's a cheaper version that's just as good, if not better. Judging by the reviews, this one isn't it, but there must be a good alternative out there?

Would you still get the ring guarantee with these second hand bells? I understand if you buy from ring, they will replace your doorbell for free if it's ever stolen
Needs to be battery powered.

But you get two way audio on cameras? And you have to pay subscription to view an alert if you miss it?
Ring doorbell and a smart lock is where I aim to be sometime after Xmas....Benefits of Ring can't really be replicated by any competitor at this moment, Couple that with the smart lock and the possibilities are endless - Let delivery man into porch and then remotely lock door when he has gone. 1 time use codes to unlock the door. See who is at the door and speak to them wherever you are, If unwanted visitor then it gives you a chance to inform them that they have been recorded and ask them to leave ect ect.. Reason I would not use anything other than the ring is the fact that it is the most responsive and for everything to work you really need it to all happen "live".

Yes you can have the ring app on your phone and see who is at her door, it's very handy for this especially around rogue traders and canvassers

A friend of mine bought one cheap from a Vipon deal to test it. I forget the name, it was Chinese and it worked really well. I'll have to ask him which model/brand.

I have the chime with my standard ring. All in all works well, Without it you are reliant on your phone or tablet in my opiniin
Whats stopping someone from stealing the unit as I would imagine its very easy to remove and design easy detachable and no cloud storage to review the video.
Everthing needs to be smart & have a wifi connection nowadays.

Won't be long till the whole ip address thing has to be revised as more than 254 devices want to connect to your router!
Has anyone used this before? Any good?

You can do more than 254 now on ipv4, it's just a matter of configuration, nothing in v4 stops this. However, your *router* might have issues, but the v4 spec itself, no problems. Millions of addresses on your private network if you want them.2
Edited by: "bilbob" 10th Sep 2017
This wasn't the reason IPv6 was developed. You don't want all home devices having their own IP address and your ISP won't give u them (of course unless your willing to pay). There are plenty of RFC1918 IPv4 addresses for your home devices.
I've got a ring and it's brilliant. Responsive . I use the phone app with the storage option £25 a year . Worth every penny. One of the best gadgets I own

I guess not. RRP £299.99 when the RING one is £169....they're having a laugh !!!
