Ring Pro is easily the most reliable. But Ring 1 is solid if you don’t have wires. Ring 1: 🤍amzn.to/3477B7G Ring 3 Plus: 🤍amzn.to/34bC5pn Ring Pro: 🤍amzn.to/34bBTq9 Blog Post: 🤍powermoves.blog/comparisons/ring/ Summary: Ring released three video doorbells in 2020. There are four options to choose from: Ring 1, Ring 3, Ring 3 Plus, and Ring Pro. If you have doorbell wires (from a regular doorbell), Ring Pro is still the clear choice, but it’ll set you back $250.Ring 1, Ring 3, and Ring 3 Plus operate with rechargeable batteries, but the motion recording isn’t always reliable. RING PRO Ring Pro accurately records anybody who comes to your door (five seconds before arriving at the door). It’s the most reliable video doorbell because it always records when it should. Unfortunately, Ring Pro requires constant power by using your previous doorbell’s wires. It has the slimmest design. RING 3 Ring 3 has a removable battery. It’s compatible with any type of house. Ring 3 occasionally forgets to record motion (with the default settings). To improve the motion recording reliability, crank the “Motion Sensitivity” and “Frequency” settings to high. Unfortunately, the battery needs a charge every two weeks with these settings. RING 3 PLUS Ring 3 Plus is the same device as Ring 3 with one expectation: Pre-Roll. Pre-Roll is a four-second black and white clip taken before the real motion clip starts. Having these extra seconds make Ring 3 Plus a no-brainer over Ring 3. RING 1 Ring 1 has about the same motion reliability and video quality as Ring 3. Surprisingly, it has a better build-quality because the cover is made with aluminum rather than plastic. Only downside: it’s battery operated, but the battery isn’t removable. The entire doorbell has to come off the door to recharge it. Ring 1 is a great value play if you can deal with the inconvenient recharging and the so-so reliability (same as Ring 3).

thanks for the comparisons.
we got a solar panel so I think ring 1 work best for our budget and needs
I live in Denver. Will it work good with snow?
Very useful video. Many thanks for the concise explanations.
Outstanding video. Just the way an instructional video should be made. Thanks.
Great video, concise and informative.
After 3 frustrating months, i finally gave up on my Ring 1. When it works it is fantastic. Trouble is, for me, it was problematic. Many calls to ring customer service-- which is excellent-- but even with all the advice and adjustments it still didnt work as advertised. No notifications, long, many minutes delay notifications, constant need to reboot and reset all devices just to get it to work for a few hours. Totally undependable. Not what i want in a security device. The problems can be related to your phone and wireless set up. Ring doesn't address that. So i got an Eufy. It works very well and is reliable. Same phone, same wireless, same location. Not saying Ring isn't a good product, just be aware that if you have constant issues it may be the wrong device for you.
I purchased the Ring 1 doorbell over 3 years ago. I hard wired the device. Testing, my doorbell chime immediatly worked and it appeared to work just fine. I travel a lot and while traveling to Asia or Europe or Arizona I can view anyone fron the Ring camera. I'm impressed with this and highly recommend to anyone.
Even doorbells have a subscription now. Infuriating.
Great reviews. I got the Ring 1(2020) 3 months ago and the subscription.. When it works, it works great. But in 3 months i have had numerous calls to customer service, which is very good and responsive, about all kinds of issues: no alerts, no chime, excessive alerts. For me the Ring isn't a set up once and forget it. It takes many adjustments regularly to keep it working right. Somewhat frustrating. Maybe the Ring Pro should have been my choice.
ordered a ring 1 before i watched this an glad i did now
Excellent review--clear, concise, thorough, and practical. The extensive testing, documentation, and video comparisons were very helpful. This comprehensive review informed my purchase, and I'll be pleased to use your link. Regards.
I just wanted to know how to pay for a 3.00 dollars a month subscription.

Hi, I've been considering getting a ring, but now I find there are different brands and options...which is the best? I was.also looking at Blink, any good?
