Unreliable product, even worse customer service

I bought the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and overall I am not impressed. When the device works, it works great but unfortunately it is fairly unreliable, to the point where I missed packages since not all notifications would be delivered. I spoke with customer service multiple times and it was suggested that it was due to my poor wifi connection, which they sent me a Chime Pro to help fix the problem. Unfortunately the Chime Pro made the connection even worse than before with no extender. When I contacted customer service again, they told me that the issue was misdiagnosed and in fact it is due to my internet connection. I was told to upgrade my internet connection and then contact them when it is fixed. Apparently my 60mbps down / 15mbps up connection is not fast enough for the Ring Video Doorbell yet I can stream YouTube 1080p outside of my house to no issue. Their customer service team told me to contact them once I upgrade my internet LOL. The device was a waste of money and I would look at solutions from August and Nest over Ring. Their customer service team is even worse so don't expect much help when you run into problems with the device. For now, this device is finding a home in my junk drawer.

I would not recommend Ring 2

I've had this device for two weeks, and its performance has dropped consistently in that time. To begin with, the device's motion detection sensor works only if there's an event 3-5 feet away. I've tried to adjust the detection zone settings with no luck. Second, the connection to the wifi has deteriorated progressively. It went from a "good" connection to "fair" to "poor" to no connection over the space of two weeks. I have made no adjustments or changes to my network or wifi settings. When I run the wifi diagnostic tool, I now see the doorbell showing up twice as two separate IPs. And the iOS app is very slow to respond. Perhaps the only thing that still works consistently is the doorbell function. If it weren't for that (and the fact that I've already drilled six holes into the bricks of the front of my house) I would return this doorbell.

Just what I was looking for! Happy so far!

Installation was a breeze! Excellent video quality, but a bit 'laggy' in live view on the app - the recordings are good though. Voice quality is just ok. Works flawlessly with our existing doorbell, and the three "Ring Chime" add-on devices I purchased and installed upstairs, downstairs and in the garage. Very glad that it has SmartThings integration - I probably would have looked elsewhere if it didn't. Through SmartThings I have it set up to automatically turn on our porch lights at night when someone rings the doorbell or when it senses motion. Because of my mounting location, the included wedge kit came in VERY handy - I needed to use BOTH pieces to get a nice centered picture . My only VERY MINOR complaint would be that I wish it had more of a metal body - feels a bit on the 'plasticy' side, but still looks nice. That said, I would still recommend the "Ring Video Doorbell 2" to a friend in a heartbeat! Now I just need to see how it performs through one of our cold Canadian winters!

Good!

My only issue was connecting to my WiFi. Signal doesn't seem to like going through brick. I installed a couple access points to boost the signal and everything is good now.

Fantastic

Not sure why the previous guy just gives up if it's not working. There can be so many issues, including poor connectivity, which is the obvious s. Just call their support and get it sorted out duh Anyways, there's no need to go on. If you know about this product then just know it's great. I have it integrated with all my smart home devises. Integration into SmartThings was a breeze and IFTTT options are pretty good. I've done enough research to know this product is proven and so far so good!

Good.

First one was a dud: connected to network but no live view; Bestbuy instore replacement was fast and easy. Second one works great: smooth live view, more details and connects faster than the first gen video bell.
