Would you do it all again or get something else?

Is anyone else disillusioned with Ring?

I was very excited when I got my Ring doorbell, but over the six months I've had it I feel like I've discovered two things. First, hardly anyone actually rings a doorbell anymore. No problem. Ring detects them and I know they're there anyway. But Second, it takes so long for Ring video to become active and show up on my phone that it's effectively useless as a security video. I typically get video of people walking away from my door if I get it at all, though I get lots of video of trucks driving by on the street. I love the idea of the product, and I think it would fantastic if it could somehow connect and process video in 2-3 seconds instead of the 20-30 it currently takes.

Now before Ring fans get mad at me, I'm here to be guided. Tell me why I'm wrong. Show me the way. Make me love Ring again. I really do want to!

I can go to the door faster than Ring can show me the camera

When I get a notification that someone is at the door, ring seems to take forever to get the camera up. I often will just go to the door, from the basement, and it will still not be showing.

We have ultra high speed internet, the wifi however is at wifi speed.

Frustrating. Not sure what I can do about it. Just a rant. [ Video Doorbell ]

Dogs know ring notification

So my dogs have always freaked out over someone knocking on the front door as many tend to do. With ring I used to get a few seconds heads up.....Especially since I changed the notification to the voice "motion activated at front door" rather than chimes.

My dogs seemed to have have adapted now. When my phone starts with "motion" they go full sprint to the door and start up. Lol. Anyone else with dogs that learn these patterns?

Ring Stickup Cams left by old homeowner, can these be transferred?

Bought a house and there are several ring outdoor cameras with solar panels. The old homeowner lives overseas (this was never their primary residence) and now we've taken it over. They do not respond to messages, including a message asking if they want them back, is there a way to transfer them to a new account without the old owner removing them from their account or should I just buy the new outdoor cams? Thanks!

EDIT: Spoke with Ring support, they will attempt to reach the former property owner, and should we not be successful they will determine the next steps. They did not confirm they would move them at this point.

Installed Ring Pro, But Mechanical Chime Not Working...Solutions?

Hello,

I just installed a Ring Pro yesterday and my mechanical chime is not working. My doorbell is not mentioned in the compatible or non compatible doorbells, so I'm unsure of what is going on. I have tried to refresh the app and choose the mechanical chime, but that didn't work. I have also connected the 2 wires on the back of the doorbell together and the chime did sound for a brief moment, so I believe that this means that my doorbell mechanical chime is the issue. Would a transformer fix this? Or should I just purchase the Ring Chime?

Thank you!

Anyone using the Ring Alarm in the UK?

I really like the system, the integration with my other Ring devices, Alexa integration, IFTTT etc. IFTTT is a feature that the Yale Sync Smart Home alarm system lacks, makes the Ring offering more appealing for HA integration and so forth.

However... One of the major deterrents is an externally mounted, visible, siren that traditionally is mounted on the front of the house with a nice flashy LED. Ring does not offer this, which is disappointing. The Yale Sync system, does offer the mounted siren.

Has anyone managed to get the Ring alarm system working with some other externally mountable siren? This is the final piece in the puzzle for me to purchase the Ring alarm!

The Ring App has started to notify Facebook when you open it.

Previously this was only happening when the camera was activated, now it happens whenever you open the app.

This is a log from my PiHole DNS ad blocker. I isolated the phone during this period. I DO NOT have Facebook installed on my phone, and no other apps we’re running at the time. The email connected to the Ring account is unique and only used by the Ring account and nowhere else. This is a 100% repeatable condition.

Where does Ring store wifi credentials - on Ring servers or locally?

Where does Ring store wifi credentials? I ask because I recently changed my Wifi SSID and password. I changed the connection on my [Doorbell Pro] (during which it asked for the new SSID and the new password). I then successfully changed the connection on my Ring [Spotlight Cam], but this time Ring did NOT require a password to connect. This indicates to me that the password is being stored by Ring.

Are wifi credentials stored locally on the App, or are they stored on Ring’s servers?

Does the Ring Alarm System require a subscription for the mobile app?

Hi there, hopefully this is the right place to ask this! I was originally bouncing back and forth between purchasing the Ring Alarm kit or the Simplisafe alarm kit. However, I have seen better reviews for the Ring and I found out that the Simplisafe alarm system requires a monthly subscription even to just use the app with it and to get alerts on your phone. I have been trying to determine if the Ring kit also does this, however I can't seem to get a clear answer because it seems as though their subscription plan only adds 24/7 professional monitoring and doesn't mention the use of the app.

So, basically I just would like to know if I am able to control the system and get notification alerts on my phone without having to pay for a subscription?

Thanks for any help!

Ring refused to provide any information to allow Ring to work through a corporate firewall

Just an FYI and observation.

Enough people of importance at the facility where I work now have Ring devices that our security team was instructed to try and make the app work from behind our firewall.

Ring support refused to provide them anything.. They apparently depend on security by obscurity. Our team could try to figure it all out via packet sniffing and such, but are not willing to devote the time and resources to do this. Time is money after all and they have more important things to do.

Thanks Ring!

Edit 2/12: Just to clarify, I went to the network guys and asked about the interaction with Ring... went approximately like this:

Q: "Hey we have users in our company who would like to use your app inside our firewall. Could you please provide the operational requirements for your app to function in this situation? "

A: "We do not share such information for security reasons."

Ring 2 Fried My Analog Doorbell Chime

I checked voltage at the transformer and it is labeled as a 16v unit putting out 19.6v. The plastic housing that holds the strikers in place inside the chime melted and dropped the strikers out; the chime unit is fried. If you connect power to the chime it buzzes like its being half engaged; assuming it did this for a few hours until it got hot and cooked the housing.
Is this an issue with the doorbell unit? It is brand new, 17 days old. The Ring unit functions fine and is still running on battery power. Do I need to install a resistor when I install a new analog chime?

Problems with multiple household members on same Ring, 2FA, and access to features

When I first set up the Ring motion light, I set up an account in my name. However, my partner paid for the entire system and should have full access. No problem, let me just give her permission for sharing....

Well, when we set up sharing, it is like she doesn't get full access to the entire account...

OK, so I just gave her my login and password, and that has been fine until this 2 factor authentication started. Now, it emails my account to give her a verification code. I tried to turn it off, but it says it is already off.

How do I turn it off, or give her full access? I suggested that we create a new household email address, and just use that, but I cannot even find a way to change the primary email address! Help!

The main downside to Ring: no glass break sensor

I've used Ring for a couple of months and it's been great. However, the lack of glass break sensor is a huge flaw.

Alexa Guard could be a suitable replacement, but there's no way to turn it on when Ring is in Home mode. So a burglar could break into our basement, steal everything, and I wouldn't know because I'm sleeping two floors up.

Am I missing something that can help plug this gap? It's disappointing that they've prioritized Smart LED bulbs instead of this critical security flaw.

Ring alarm motion sensors are awful (in ambient daylight)

Hi all,

I purchased the ring alarm system about two months ago, and have been having some major issues with the motion sensor being over sensitive to daylight.

The motion sensor is in my main entrance, and falsely triggers practically every sunny day, and always between the hours of 12:00-14:00. There is a window in my (south facing) door, and I'm unable to put anything up infront of it, it won't be possible to block this room completely off from daylight.

I have moved this sensor to multiple areas in the room (there's now holes in the wall everywhere from the bracket being moved haha), and unfortunately it still triggers. The sensor is currently facing a none-reflective standard internal wall, about 2 metres away, and it seems that the sunlight shining onto the wall (and maybe a cloud passing by) is enough to set the sensor off.

I previously had a cheap alarm system from eBay, and had a motion sensor in the same room, which never had an issue in the 10 years that I had it.

Ring alarm - no more cellular backup

I have four ring alarm systems at different locations. In the app, can go to each location devices, choose base station, top right shows battery and then right below it I see cellular strength.

Well today I lost internet at one location and my alarm was offline the entire time. Internet outage ended a couple hours later and when I login to check cellular backup strength, that entire icon of signal bars is gone.

The other 3 locations still have it. App is up to date, firmware as well. I've restarted the base station via the app, same thing. Any ideas?

And yes I have active professional monitoring and it's enabled

Ring pro blinking blue light top only

So I just installed mine and worked fine Sunday. But this yesterday noticed it had just a blinking blue Light on top. Tried to reset it before work. Disconnected power, tried holding the side bottom to get it to reset or go to connect mode and nothing. It seems it lost connection and it won’t find Wi-Fi or go in connection mode anymore. Any idea what is going on or how to solve this. Going to call support after work I guess

Ring outdoor motion sensor - works with Ring Alarm?

I have a Ring Alarm including some white motion sensors. I noticed on Ring website that they now sell a black motion sensor that’s outdoor rated. But it looks like it’s only designed to work with Ring smart lights and not Alarm? Is that correct? Not sure why one sensor can’t be used for both Alarm and Lights.

[UK] Wiring Ring Doorbell Pro To A Classic Digital/Mechanical Internal Doorbell Chime (Not Ring Chime)

Ring states that Ring Video Doorbell Pro can be wired to traditional internal chimes for offline use.

I've never had a doorbell of any kind in my current house, so Ring Video Doorbell Pro is my first one. Currently I have it wired directly to the 24v transformer and using the supplied Ring Chime that plugs into an electrical socket. It's all fine until internet goes down, so a wired chime is still essential.

The issue is that all chimes seem to be 8-12v, while Ring Pro needs at least 16v.... so the choice so far is to either underpower the Ring Pro, or fry a classic wired chime. I've looked here https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/209028546-Ring-Video-Doorbell-Pro-Chime-Kit-Compatibility... and while I haven't checked out all of them yet, a lot of the "Compatible" chimes seem to be 12v as well... so how are they compatible then? Are Ring saying that all these ch

Ring+lutron?

Hello, I have a wired ring floodlight+bridge. Controlled with the ring app. But I want to install a couple lutron light switches in kitchen, dining room, living room and hallway + the lutron smart bridge. But then to control those lutron switches wirelessly, I would need to use the lutron app. Is there a way to control both from 1 app?

Ring Doorbell failed to capture 2 different incidents in which someone removed it from my porch.

In the last 72 hours:

Incident 1: Walked outside at night, found my doorbell on my porch. No video was recorded of the person removing it.

Incident 2: between 8:05am and 8:39am. Camera when dark, it was on my porch again.

Called Ring each time. They weren't able to see video. They mailed me a new replacement for each.

Does anyone else go through this? There was no material defect and the protect plan was UTD. They can't understand what caused the issue.

Ring flood cams keep picking cats (outdoor stray cats) when motion set to humans only. And it's getting really annoying!

Is there a fix for this? I'm at a point where I don't even look at my notifications cause it usually a cat that triggered the alert, unit it's not.... This is turning into one of those "cry wolf" situations.

Ring Pro Lost Power

Installed a used Ring Pro last night that my buddy gave me when he moved. It was working 100% when he uninstalled it.

I hooked up the power pack per instructions, mine had the pack with the two clips to wire in. Basically everything went fine, camera connected and worked, voltage read good.

However, it would take forever to connect live. I’m talking 30 seconds plus on my home network.

This morning voltage alerted as poor, and now the unit has what seems to be no power and won’t enter connection mode. It’s odd because everything was fine and working, and now everything seems dead.

I’ll put my meter on the transformer tonight and check it out to make sure it’s still good. It’s a brand new house I just closed on. I know online support is worthless if the unit won’t even power on. Had no idea this thing could be this much of a pain.

Does Ring ever intend to fix their software?

For as long as I can remember their app has always been hit or miss. Sometimes you can connect to the live feed and sometimes (most of the time) you can't. And if it does, chances are the person is gone before you can check to see who it is. I don't know what protocol they use, but I get way better results with my HTTP cameras.

If I'm paying for the core functionality of the device, shouldn't it work 100% of the time?
