Overview: The Ring Video Doorbell 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 has a built-in camera that streams HD video via Wi-Fi, and
two-way audio to let you speak with your visitor. The Ring video doorbell
replaces your existing doorbell, and can be powered by the built-in
rechargeable battery, or hardwired to your existing doorbell wiring (8-24 VAC).
The Ring Video Doorbell is also available with a
Camera: The Video Doorbell has a wide-angle lens with a
180° field of view. The camera produces bright 720p HD video in a Live View
that you can watch on your phone, tablet, or computer. Adjustable motion sensors
let you customize the size and sensitivity of the motion detection zones. 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.
Weather Resistant: The Video Doorbell is resistant to
inclement weather and temperature extremes (-5°F to 120°F).
Installation: The Ring Video Doorbell is designed to replace an
existing doorbell, and is compatible with most AC-powered door chimes operating
between 8 and 24 volts. Even
if you don't have an existing doorbell, you can install the Video Doorbell and
power it for 6-12 months per charge with the built-in rechargeable
Corner installation kits,
sold separately, are available to help properly aim
the camera for best performance. If your existing doorbell has a diode, the
included diode should be used with your Ring Video Doorbell (if hardwiring).
Wi-Fi: The Ring Video Doorbell operates on an 802.11 b/g/n
Wi-Fi connection on the 2.4 GHz band. It requires a minimum upload speed of 500
kbps, however, 1 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. 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, flash the lights, activate the siren, 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
