Overview: The Ring Video Doorbell Pro instantly alerts you (on your
smartphone, tablet, or computer) when someone approaches your front door or
rings your doorbell, and lets you see and hear who it is before you answer. The
Video Doorbell Pro has a built-in camera that streams HD video via Wi-Fi, and
two-way audio to let you speak with your visitor. It features customizable
motion zones, and enhanced Wi-Fi. The Ring video doorbell
replaces your existing doorbell, and integrates into the existing 16-24 VAC
transformer wiring. Four interchangeable faceplates are included, so you'll find
one that fits your décor.
Camera: The Video Doorbell Pro has a wide-angle lens with a
160° field of view. The camera produces bright 1080p HD video in a Live View
that you can watch on your phone, tablet, or computer. When
motion is detected, a notification will be sent to your smart device or computer
through the Ring app, allowing you to view the live video stream. Built-in
infrared LEDs enable night vision after the sun goes down.
Motion Zones: Motion Zones allow you to define specific
areas that you want the Ring Doorbell Pro to monitor for movement. You can
determine the size and shape of the Motion Zone in the Ring app by "drawing" the
box on your screen. Other zones, where there is frequent activity that causes
false alerts, can be designated as non-active. Other Motion Settings include
scheduling and sensitivity. You can schedule brief interruption in coverage to
avoid triggering alerts caused by expected activity. A slider in the app menu
lets you fine tune the sensitivity from "People Only" motion to "All Activity.
Weather Resistant: The Video Doorbell Pro is resistant to
inclement weather and temperature extremes (-5°F to 120°F).
Installation: The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is designed to replace an
existing doorbell, and is compatible with most
mechanical or digital doorbell chimes with 16-24 volts AC transformers.
Installation hardware and wiring are included. Optional
Corner installation kits, sold separately, can help properly aim the camera
for best performance. Four interchangeable faceplates are included with the Video Doorbell Pro -- Satin Nickel,
Black, Cream, and Venetian Bronze -- so
you can customize the look.
Wi-Fi: The Ring Video Doorbell Pro operates on an 802.11 b/g/n
Wi-Fi connection on either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. It requires a minimum upload speed of 1
Mbps, however, 2 Mbps is recommended for best streaming performance.
Ring App: The free Ring - Almost Home app pulls together all
of your Ring devices, including Video Doorbells and Security Cameras. You can have multiple users on your Ring account, each with the ability to
view video from any of the video devices. The app
sends you an instant alert when someone triggers a motion sensor, or rings your
Ring Video Doorbell. You'll be able to see, hear, and speak to anyone on your
property using your smart device. In addition, the app lets you create a virtual
Neighborhood Watch and receive alerts from your neighbors. In the app, you can
zoom and pan for a better look, customize
the Motion Zones, times for receiving (or not receiving) alerts, and how often
to be notified for motion events. The Ring App is available for Apple iPhone,
iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 9.1 or later, and for Android devices running
version 4.4 and up. The app also works with Windows 10 and Mac OS.
Ring Protect: The Ring app includes a free 30-day trial of
Ring Video Recording, which lets you save, review, and share recordings from the
app. Ring Protect plans are currently* $3.00 per month / $30.00 per year for
basic coverage (per camera), or $10.00 per month / $100.00 per year for Protect
