I am so happy I bought this doorbell! I chose not to run the wiring from my existing doorbell, due to the area where my current doorbell sits is too narrow for the Ring. extremely easy to install, and connecting to the app is simple as well. I like the ability to set the motion alerts, the area of motion detection, and the ability to view all motion events, even if I have motion alerts turned off. This really is a great deterrent for home break-ins. I live in an area that has a high number of daytime home break-ins, and typically the thieves will ring the doorbell to see if anyone answers. With this, not only can I answer, but I can record and speak with the person at the door. They are recorded as they walk up my driveway, so even if they cover the camera once they get to the door, I already have them on video. I feel like this will really help in identifying robbers, or any sketchy person that I feel needs to be reported to the police; just because they don't break-in to my house doesn't mean they haven't broken in to other houses, and by me giving the police my video, it may help in catching the burglar.
I just bought this system and I love it. It was simple to setup. I just took the main box(they call it opu) and plugged it in to my home router. Then put the cameras and sensors around my Home. I download the app. Which was a little hard to find because it is called Home8. The system was up in minutes. I can see live cameras at all time of what's going on in my home. Who's there and what their doing. I receive alerts when a sensor is setoff as well as a recorded video of what set it off. Totally recommend!
I like the system. The camera picture is clear and it serves the purpose that I bought it for, which was to keep an eye on my son's sitter. One issue is the sound for 2 way talk, it is very low. Another was with the setup. I had to plug each camera into the router to program them so I was not able to set them up using the wireless option. Other than those issues, I think it was a great purchase.
