About the Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Generation)

An affordable way to keep an eye on your home

The kids next door lose their basketball in our yard a lot. When they ring our Ring Video Doorbell, I'm able to answer from wherever I am to tell them I'll toss it over the fence as soon as I can. The two-way talk feature lets me remain physically distant, but still able to have a nice, neighborly chat. I can even keep an eye on things on the rare occasions these days when I'm not at home, too.

New features

The previous version of this budget-friendly model offered a 720p view of the front door, while this one delivers a crisper 1080p view — at the same affordable price point. Ring has also improved the audio quality, night vision, and motion options in this second-generation model.

Ring Video Doorbell lets you see guests

Hardwired or battery-powered — your choice

If your current doorbell operates at a voltage between 8 and 24 volts AC, you can connect this second-generation Ring Video Doorbell to the existing wiring. Hardwiring this way keeps Ring's battery charged and allows it to trigger your existing chime when someone rings the bell.

No doorbell at all? No problem. The battery can be charged with the included micro USB cable, and the mounting setup has been revamped to make it easier to remove for charging. Without an existing doorbell, you'll also need to keep your phone handy for notifications, or purchase Ring Chime or Chime Pro for alerts while you're at home.

Optional cloud storage

The camera streams live footage to the app 24/7, but if you want to save or send video clips, you'll need a Ring Protect plan. Ring Protect is a subscription-based cloud storage service. The basic package ($3/month or $30/year) covers a single camera and allows you to save and share your Ring videos from that camera. You get a free, 30-day trial subscription when you activate your Ring device.

Installing multiple Ring devices? The Ring Protect Plus plan ($10/month or $100/year) includes cloud storage for unlimited Ring devices at a single location.

Part of your ring of security

The Ring Video Doorbell is just one piece of your home protection puzzle. Fill in the gaps with these other Ring devices:
