Ring Video Doorbell review


Along with the door itself, the doorbell is one of the first items most visitors will interact with when entering your home. The Ring Video Doorbell can show you who's at the door, whether they've actually rung the doorbell or not. Here's how it stacks...

Enormous security potential ; Intuitive app ; Easy installation ; Inexpensive

Latency in time-to-answer ; Plastic-y case components

We think the Ring Video Doorbell is a great addition to any home, and at just $99, is a steal.

Ring Video Doorbell


The Ring Video Doorbell lets you use your smartphone to see who is at your door before you open it. It offers motion detection, push notifications, and video recording, but audio quality is inconsistent and battery life could be better.

Easy to install. HD video. Cloud recording. Motion detection notifications.

Pricey. No on-demand video. Audio could be better. Short battery life.

Conclusions With the Ring Video Doorbell, you can see who is at your door from the safety and comfort of your couch. It lets you accept or deny visitor calls, and uses motion detection to alert you of activity on your doorstep even when the bell hasn't...

Review: Ring Video Doorbell


The Ring is a novel idea: a person rings your doorbell, your smartphone buzzes, and with a tap, you can initiate a videochat with the...

Interact with visitors and delivery persons without opening the door---or even without being home. Painless installation and setup. New feature can detect motion on your property, up to 30 feet away. For a small fee, every trigger is recorded

Alerts sometimes take far too long to arrive on your smartphone---as long as 30 seconds. Motion detection requires some fine-tuning. No remote camera access (yet)

Ring Video Doorbell review: The gadget that makes crooks think you never leave home


Ring provides home security through a video peephole, letting you see who's at the door whether you're inside the house or 100 miles away.

Let's you view, and speak with, anyone who presses your doorbell. ; Wide-angle video with night vision. ; Motion-detection feature sends video alerts when anyone steps to your door.

Bad lag times between doorbell presses and smartphone alerts. ; Slow app performance. ; No video-on-demand (yet).

My connection problems notwithstanding, I still give Ring a cautious thumbs-up. Every user will enter the Ring experience with a different connectivity situation—different home Wi-Fi dynamics; different smartphone variables—so others might experience...

Ring Video Doorbell Review: See Who’s At Your Door From Your Phone


Most everyone has a doorbell on the front of their house, apartment or townhouse. It's kind of a staple of all dwellings. Even apartment buildings usually have a buzzer or intercom system to communicate with visitors. Now take that same doorbell and...

Overall Ring is a pretty nifty gadget that really didn’t disappoint. Admittedly there are a few streaming issues here and there but my AT&T network has always been flaky, I drop WiFi on my devices a lot. Ring worked every time it was activated and the...

Ring Video Doorbell Review: The Top Video Doorbell Under $100


Sometimes good enough is good enough. The Ring Video Doorbell's 720p camera works just fine for recognizing faces, the app has a strong array of features and its starting cloud storage plan is reasonably priced. It's also one of the few video doorbells...

Inexpensive ; Customizable motion zones ; Good-quality video ; Works wired or battery powered

Lower resolution than other video doorbells

Get the Ring Video Doorbell if you want an inexpensive but very capable video doorbell.

Ding Dong Deterrent: My review of the Ring video doorbell


Find yourself out of the house a lot? Be ever-present at your front door with the Ring video doorbell, an easy to install security focused twist on your home's boring old bell. Burglars beware.

Ring video doorbell review: Answer your door from anywhere


We get frequent visitors here at the TechnoBuffalo office—at least a few a day. That's not an issue in and of itself, but the problem is we can't actually see who's outside our door until we open it (sadly, there's no peephole). That makes for some...

To see the device in action, check out the video above. Home owners should take a hard look at what this device has to offer. Sure, you might find that a more robust security system is a better fit for your home, but you’ll be looking at monthly fees...

Ring Video Doorbell Review: Editors' Choice


The Ring Video Doorbell is an easy way to take the first step towards turning any house into a smart home. The $199 device is worth every penny and ultimately more useful than many of the other smart home products I've tried. Its ease of installation,...

The Ring Video Doorbell is built to survive common hazards. It has a pair of anti-theft screws on the bottom and the manufacturer promises to replace any stolen units. It’s also rated to withstand bad weather and I haven’t had any problems with our...

Ring Video Doorbell Review: You Can Finally Tell The Delivery Guy To Wait 30 More Seconds


The new design and branding are intended to be more appealing to traditional homeowners looking for something more appropriate for their existing decor, and less sci-fi – and there have been functional improvements to the product to boot

Answer your door from anywhere ; Comprehensive mounting kit included

Needs to be within Wi-Fi range ; Some occasional lag

Ring as it currently stands is immensely valuable to anyone who has to answer the door frequently, or who depends on regular package delivery for their jobs. It has actually saved me at least two trips to shipping depots 30 minutes away by car, thanks...
