Best video doorbells in 2021: Top smart doorbell cameras rated

The best video doorbells could help prevent people from stealing packages from your front stoop — or at least identify the porch pirate. That's because a doorbell camera records all the activity happening in front of your front door, and sends you an alert to your smartphone. Some smart doorbells can also let you know when a package has arrived, helpful in this delivery-heavy era. 

The best doorbell cameras are also good for those with mobility issues. For example, if you can't get to your front door easily or quickly, you can use your smartphone to tell your visitor to wait until you get to the front door. 

We've tested dozens of video doorbells to bring you what we think are the best.

Ring Video Doorbell Black Friday deals

It's still a ways away, but you can already find some Ring video doorbell Black Friday deals; we'll be updating the page regularly now through November. And be sure to check out our best Black Friday deals for discounts on everything from TVs to Airpods to mattresses and more.

What are the best video doorbells?

After testing all of the top models, we think that the best video doorbell is the Nest  Doorbell (battery). It has the highest video quality, can recognize individual faces and can even announce them, too. And despite its name, you can also hardwire it. But what we like most is that Nest is now offering a few features for free, such as rolling three hours of video and person, package, and vehicle detection. 

If you're looking for something less than $100, the Ring Video Doorbell (2nd gen) is your best bet. It has a 1080p camera, you can use this model either wired or on battery power alone, and you can create custom motion zones, and also see what's going on in your neighborhood. However, Blink announced the $49 Blink Video Doorbell, which has many of the same features (except for person detection); it's available for preorder, and will start shipping in late October.

For a deeper dive, be sure to check out our comparison of Ring vs. Nest video doorbells, as well as our Ring vs. Ring Pro vs Ring 3 page, which examines every Ring video doorbell in depth.

Just in time for Halloween, Ring is rolling out "spooky" quick replies as well as themed chimes for its video doorbells. Instead of a traditional chime, you can pick from bats, ghosts, howl, scream, spooky organ tones, creepy laugh, a screeching cat, and a creaky door. However, the chime tones go away on November 1.

Check out our picks for the best video doorbells.

The Nest Doorbell (battery) gets almost everything right. Its 3:4 vertical aspect ratio means you can see more of your front door; it can work either wired or on battery power alone, and it has a lot of great features, such as the ability to recognize familiar faces, packages, animals, and vehicles.

Even better is that the camera also offers some of those features for free, as well as three hours of rolling video storage — things that used to require a subscription. If you want longer storage, you can still sign up for Nest Aware, which starts at $6/month.

The best video doorbell value

Starting Storage Fee: $30/year for 60 days video

Reasons to buy

+Inexpensive+Customizable motion zones+Good-quality video+Works wired or battery powered

Reasons to avoid

-No pre-roll feature

If you're looking for the best video doorbell under $100, the Ring Video Doorbell (2nd generation) is your best option. It has a 1080p camera (up from 720p on the original), as well as improved night vision and better motion-tracking capabilities. It's still the best video doorbell for those on a budget.

Like the Ring Video Doorbell 3 and 4, we like that you can use this model either wired or on battery power alone, and you can create custom motion zones, and also see what's going on in your neighborhood. Plus, Ring offers very affordable video storage plans starting at $30 a year. Ring also added package detection for this model, bringing its feature set more in line with the competition.

3. Arlo Video Doorbell

Wired video doorbell with package detection


Video Resolution: 1536 x 1536

Field of View: 180 degrees (diagonal)

Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant

Size: 5.1 x 1.8 x 1 inches

Wired/Battery: Yes/No

Starting Storage Fee: $3/month (single camera)

Reasons to buy

+Great video/audio quality+Person, package, animal detection+Feature-packed app

Reasons to avoid

-Requires subscription for most features-Wired only

Arlo makes some of the best home security cameras, so it should be no surprise that the Arlo Video doorbell is one of the best video doorbells, too. It delivered high-quality video and audio both day and night, and features both person and package detection. Arlo's video doorbell also works with Alexa and Google Assistant, so can receive notifications on smart speakers, and livestream video from the doorbell to an Amazon Echo Show or Google Nest Hub smart display.

Arlo's app has a ton of features, but some of them, such as motion sensitivity, are difficult to find. Also, the video doorbell has to be hard-wired. And, for most of the smarter features, including video storage, you need to sign up for a subscription.  But, if you have Arlo's security cameras, its video doorbell will make an excellent addition, as you can add up to five cameras for $10 a month.

4. Ring Video Doorbell 4

Color pre-roll lets you see visitors better


Video Resolution: 1080p

Field of View: 160 degrees

Works with: Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT

Size: 5.1 x 2.4 x 1.1 inches

Wired/Battery: Yes/Yes

Starting Storage Fee: $30/year for 60 days video

Reasons to buy

+Can be wired or battery-powered+Pre-roll much improved+Large ecosystem of compatible devices

Reasons to avoid

-No end-to-end encryption-Small vertical field of view-No package detection

The Ring Video Doorbell 4 can run on battery power or as a wired unit, making it easy to install just about anywhere. This 1080p doorbell camera offers good customization for motion alerts, although it's not as robust as the Ring Pro 2. Also, its field of view is more limited than the Ring Pro 2, the Arlo, and the Nest, and like other Ring doorbells, it lacks package detection. However, its new color Pre-roll feature does make it a lot easier to see visitors. 

If you have a lot of other Ring devices, this video doorbell will work well within the Ring and Amazon ecosystem. But, it's not compatible with Google Home or HomeKit.

5. Nest Hello

A more compact Nest video doorbell


Video Resolution: 1600 x 1200

Field of View: 160 degrees

Works with: Alexa, Google Assistant

Size: 4.6 x 1.7 x 1 inch

Wired/Battery: wired

Starting Storage Fee: $6/month, $60/year for 30 days video

Reasons to buy

+Great video quality+Flexible scheduling+Facial recognition

Reasons to avoid

-Uses a lot of bandwidth to upload video-Requires hardwired connection

The Nest Hello (now known as the Nest Doorbell (wired)  produced some the best-looking video we've yet seen, and its microphone and speaker were excellent, too. This is one smart video doorbell, too: The Nest Hello can also recognize people's faces, and announce them via a Google Assistant compatible device when they come to your door. (It also works with Alexa). 

While the Hello needs a hardwired connection, it continuously records video, so you'll never miss an event. You can also set up specific zones, so you'll only be notified when a person or object appears in that area of the frame. To get most of these features, you'll need to subscribe to the Nest Aware service (starting at $6/month or $60 year for 30 days of video), but they're worth it.

6. Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2

Sees more of your front porch


Video Resolution: 1536 x 1536

Field of View: 150 x 150 degrees

Works with: Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT

Size: 4 x 1.8 x 0.88 inches

Wired/Battery: No

Starting Storage Fee: $30/year for 60 days video

Reasons to buy

+Shows more of front porch than other Ring cameras+Great video quality+Slim design

Reasons to avoid

-Wired only

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is the first from the company that has a square aspect ratio, which means the video is as tall as it is wide. What that means is that it can show much more of your front stoop than other Ring doorbells — so you're more likely to see when a package has been dropped off. Better yet, Ring added package detection, so you know when something arrives. It also has customizable motion zones and a new "radar" feature that helps cut down on unwanted notifications. 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 delivered excellent video quality, was very responsive, and wasn't too hard to install. Just know that it's not battery-operated, and you'll also need to subscribe to a Ring Protect plan (starting at $3/month or $30/year) if you want to get the most out of the video doorbell.

7. Logitech Circle View Doorbell

Best video doorbell for HomeKit users


Video Resolution: 1200 x 1600

Field of View: 160 degrees/3:4 portrait view

Works with: Apple HomeKit

Size: 4.68 x 1.65 x 1.1 inches

Wired/Battery: Yes

Starting Storage Fee: $2.99 per month/10 days of video

Reasons to buy

+Good video quality+Slim+Secure cloud storage

Reasons to avoid

-Setup could be easier-Only works with HomeKit/iOS devices-Expensive

If you're an Apple HomeKit user, you don't have many choices when it comes to video doorbells. The Logitech Circle View is one of the few options, and fortunately, it's pretty good. We liked its 3:4 aspect ratio, which shows more of our front porch, as well as its sharp video quality both day and night. It also has very secure cloud storage and it can identify people by face if they're in your iCloud photos.

However, the setup process — which is done entirely in the Home app on your iPhone — could be easier. And, the cloud storage plan ($2.99/month for 10 days of video storage) isn't as generous as other companies. But, if you're on HomeKit, this is one of your best — and only — options.

Read our full Logitech Circle View Doorbell review.

8. Ring Video Doorbell Wired

The cheapest Ring video doorbell — with some compromises


Camera resolution: 1080p

Field of view: 155° horizontal

Audio: Two-Way Talk with Noise Cancellation

Night Vision: IR LEDs

Wi-Fi: 802.11 b/g/n @ 2.4GHz

Size: 3.9 x 1.8 x 0.8 inches

Starting storage fee: $3/month for 30 days video

Reasons to buy

+Inexpensive+Good video quality+Small

Reasons to avoid

-Does not work with existing door chimes-Requires purchase of Ring Chime if you want to hear a ring

The low price of the Ring Video Doorbell Wired — just $60 — is very tempting for those looking for a budget video doorbell from a reputable brand. However, there are a few caveats that will make the total cost a bit higher. That's because this video doorbell does not work with your existing doorbell chime, so you'll need to tack on an extra $20 or so to purchase a Ring Chime if you want to hear the familiar ding-dong in your home.

Otherwise, the Ring Video Doorbell Wired works well, produces a quality image, and has a slim profile. You'll need a Ring Protect subscription (starting at $3/month) if you want to save recordings, which also adds to the overall cost. But, this is a good video doorbell with a comparatively low entry fee.

9. Maximus Answer DualCam

This video doorbell can show you if packages arrived


Video Resolution: 1080p (top camera) 720p (bottom camera)

Field of View: 180 degrees (vertical)

Works with: n/a

Size: 4.5 x 1.8 x 1 inches

Wired/Battery: Yes/no

Starting Storage Fee: $4.99/month for 7 days video

Reasons to buy

+Dual cameras show more of visitors and packages on the doorstep+Installation is simple+Kuna app is easy to use

Reasons to avoid

-The volume of doorbell speaker is low-Doesn't work with other smart home systems

While many video doorbells claim to have a wide field of view, virtually none of them can see what's happening right at your doorstep—where the majority of your packages are dropped. The Maximus Answer DualCam solves this problem by packing two cameras: one that looks straight out, and one that looks directly down. That way, you can see if there's a package at your door—and if someone tries to steal it.

The dual-camera setup worked well, though this video doorbell has a few rough edges. Its speaker is pretty quiet, and there's a delay between the time you talk and a visitor hears you. Plus, the Maximus doesn't work with any other smart home system, such as Alexa or Google Assistant.

10. Eufy 2K Video Doorbell

An inexpensive video doorbell that delivers on the basics


Video Resolution: 2560 x 1920

Field of View: 150 degrees

Works with: Alexa, Google Home

Size: 4.8 x 1.7 x 0.9 inches

Wired/Battery: Yes/no

Starting Storage Fee: $3.99 a month or $29.99 a year for 30 days of video

Reasons to buy

+Easy-to-use app+Doorbell chime included+Built-in storage

Reasons to avoid

-Requires wired connection-Doesn't support multiple users

The Eufy 2K Video Doorbell records good-quality video over a 150-degree field of view. While you can sign up for cloud storage (which starts at $30/year for 30 days of storage), the Eufy 2K also has a microSD card slot, so you can save footage locally, too. 

However, the Eufy 2K Video Doorbell has a few drawbacks: It's a wired-only device, only supports one user (so you can't share it with family members), and has limited smart-home interoperability. But for around $150, it's not a bad deal.

How to choose the best video doorbell

Battery vs. Wired

Video doorbells come in one of two varieties: Wired or battery powered (Some, like the Ring Video Doorbell 4 and the Nest Doorbell (battery) can do both). If you're replacing a traditional doorbell, a wired video doorbell makes the most sense; you just have to make sure that there's enough power going to the doorbell. Typically, there will be an 16-24V transformer providing power, which should be enough for most video doorbells.

If you're planning to install a video doorbell where there is no existing wiring, buying a battery-powered model is far easier (and cheaper) than hiring an electrician. Just remember that a battery-powered video doorbell will have to be recharged occasionally. Some, such as the Ring Video Doorbell 4, have a replaceable battery, so there's no downtime while you're juicing it back up. Some companies also sell solar panels that can help keep the video doorbell's battery charged.

Doorbell placement

Your choice of doorbells will also depend on whether you're replacing an existing doorbell or installing a doorbell where there isn't one already. In general, though, you want the doorbell to be about 4 feet off the ground, so it's high enough to see everything well, but not too high so that its button is hard to push for shorter individuals.

Field of View

Do you want a narrow view of just the person at the door, or do you want to see everything around your entryway? Some video doorbells will offer a wide, landscape view, while others have a portrait orientation; the latter is especially useful for seeing packages dropped off close to your door. 

Video Resolution

The higher the resolution, the sharper the image, which will make it easier to identify people at your door. Most video doorbells now have at least a resolution of 1080p.

Package, person, and animal detection

It's good to know more than just that there's something at your door; better video doorbells can tell you if a person is approaching, if there's an animal, or if a package has been left at your doorstep.

Night Mode

The video doorbells we tested take different approaches to capturing video at night. The August Doorbell cam uses motion-activated LEDs to light the area in front of the camera, so it can capture colors a little better. Ring's doorbells use infrared night vision to see in the dark, but the result is monochrome video.


Aesthetics may be a concern. After all, you're bolting this thing to the front of your house! The Ring Pro looks the most like a traditional doorbell, and Ring even includes four faceplates, so you can choose which matches your house's trim or paint one exactly the shade you like.

Video doorbells vs. security cameras

Video doorbells don't necessarily make the best home security cameras. While the apps let you choose to receive motion alerts as well as doorbell alerts, motion-triggered events often resulted in video of a person or car just exiting the frame.

A dedicated home security camera may be a better choice if you're looking for actual security, because you can position such a camera in more places. And when you get a motion alert, you can back up the video and see what happened before the alert came in.

How we test video doorbells

To test video doorbells, we self-install the devices on houses and tested in real-world conditions with friends and family ringing the bells day and night. 

We evaluated ease of setup, the design and features of the app, and how well the app and doorbell kept us notified; some video doorbells can send you a large number of false motion alerts, which you don't want.  

Of course, we also look at video and audio quality, both during the day and during the night, as well as how quick the cameras were to recognize motion and start recording. 

We also factor in interoperability and compatibility with other smart home devices and security systems, as well as how much you'll pay for cloud storage to save the video.

Best video doorbell: Nest vs. Ring vs. Arlo and all the rest


Which video doorbell deserves to be mounted next to your front door? Our reviews lay it all out.

Your front door is the gateway to your home, so it needs to be well protected. Whether you’re watching for trouble-makers, monitoring for parcel deliveries, waiting for friends to visit, or hiding from that weird neighbor who keeps asking to borrow your lawn mower, these dual-purpose video surveillance systems will help you keep an eye out.

If your house has existing low-voltage doorbell wiring, take advantage of it for uninterrupted service. If it doesn’t, we can recommend a battery-powered solution that’s more flexible when it comes to location. And if you’re renting and can’t mount anything to the wall—or you’d just prefer not to—we can recommend a couple of alternatives.

Most video doorbells come with motion detection, night vision, and smartphone alert features, so be sure to read our full reviews for details on how they performed. Many also require a monthly subscription to store video in the cloud, so factor a few years of service into the price before you make a decision.

And if you’re also thinking of adding outdoor security cameras to your arsenal, or integrating a video doorbell into a comprehensive smart home system, explore your compatibility options so you don’t find yourself juggling two or three different apps. 

Updated September 20, 2021 to add a link to our Avantek DB-21 wireless doorbell review. It’s not a video doorbell and it doesn’t integrated into a smart home, so we won’t be including it in the list at the bottom of this page, but we thought readers might be interested because of its very low price—about $27 on Amazon—and its supremely easy setup and installation.

Best wired video doorbell

This isn’t the least-expensive video doorbell on the market, but it is the absolute best, offering unique features you won’t find on competing products. It delivers very high resolution (1664 x 1664 pixels), posesses a 180 x 180-degree field of view that shows visitors from head to toe, and it flashes a light and sounds a tone when visitors approach, helping them locate the doorbell button while putting potential porch pirates on notice that they’re being monitored. You’ll want to sign up for the ostensibly optional cloud-storage plan ($4.99 per month) to get maximum benefit (you’ll get only a live stream from the camera without it), but its selling price includes professional installation, even if your home doesn’t have the low-voltage wiring it requires for power.

Best battery-powered video doorbell

Google pulls into the lead in the video doorbell market with its powerful and versatile Nest Doorbell (battery). Despite its name, this video doorbell can operate on either battery power or your home’s existing low-voltage wiring that powers your current doorbell. This smart home device was supremely easy to install and configure, it delivered crisp and clear video recordings, and it was consistently accurate with its alerts and notifications. If you’re firmly in the Alexa camp of smart speakers and displays, however, you’ll want to stick with Ring or another competitor, as this one works much better with Google Home products.

Best budget-priced video doorbell 

Ring wins this category by building an inexpensive-but-strong video doorbell that can be integrated with the company’s increasingly diverse smart home ecosystem. Yes, it’s a single-band Wi-Fi device; and yes, it can’t ring your existing chime despite being wired to it. But it delivers pretty good 1080p video in daylight and very good black-and-white night vision when it gets dark. And it does it for just $60.

Best video doorbell for Apple HomeKit fans 

We’re becoming increasingly impressed with Apple’s HomeKit smart home initiative, especially the privacy to delivers with security cameras. Logitech capitalized on HomeKit’s best features to deliver the Circle View Doorbell, which is now our top pick in video doorbells for Apple users using HomeKit as the foundation for their smart home. 

Best video doorbell alternative

Here’s a great alternative to the video doorbell. The Brinno SHC1000 sits behind your door and provides a peephole-level view of your porch and whatever lies beyond. It replaces your current peephole, so a bit of DIY is required, but it will record and log visitors to a microSD card. Video quality isn’t up to that of a doorbell cam, but if you can’t mount any of those, it’s a solid alternative.

Another video doorbell alternative

Renters don’t always have the ability to change or install a doorbell. If that’s the case, consider the Remo+ DoorCam 2 has a nifty design sits over the top of your door, so you can keep watch without drilling holes or going inside a wall. It doesn’t have a doorbell function, but it will alert you to anyone on your porch. Two-way audio allows you to chat with people on the other side of the door without opening it.

Ring remobell vs

The RemoBell S is a decent doorbell camera for the price. But if you’re willing to spend a bit more, we recommend going with something like the Nest Hello or the Eufy Video Doorbell instead. RemoBell S’s features are good on a budget, but they can’t stack up against the (more expensive) competition.

RemoBell S features: The RemoBell S gives you standard features like HD recording, night vision, and two-way audio. But you won’t see more advanced features like person detection or smart alerts.

RemoBell S installation: RemoBell S installation was a little tricky, mostly because you have to attach your doorbell wiring directly to the camera body instead of the baseplate. We still had ours up and running in about an hour.

RemoBell S pricing: The RemoBell S itself is pretty cheap at only $99. If you opt for a cloud storage subscription plan, you’ll pay $3 per month (or $30 per year).

RemoBell S home automation: The RemoBell S works with IFTTT, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant. Its Alexa integration is better than its Google Assistant features.

Remobell S Extra

Difference #1: Field of View – When it comes to the field of view, RemoBell S does pull ahead with its 180 degrees both horizontally and vertically vs. 160 degrees horizontal, 100 degrees vertical of Ring Pro.

Difference 2: Motion Detection – Both RemoBell S and Ring Pro offer the motion detection feature, but there are still some differences.

With Ring Pro, you can easily create motion zones for the doorbell to capture every single motion only within those chosen areas. Which can be a nuisance otherwise, especially if you have outdoor pets, or live in a busy neighborhood.

While RemoBell S does boast an adjustable motion detector, there have been several complaints about the sensitivity of it, meaning that it captures even the slightest motion, causing some users to disable the feature.

Yet if you reside in a more peaceful area, the RemoBell S should suit you fine.

Difference #3: Video Resolution – Both RemoBell S and Ring Pro offer HD video quality. However, there is a slight difference in resolution as Ring Pro offers 1080p, while RemoBell S offers 1536 x 1536.

RemoBell S

In the Free plan, you have the 3-day Rolling Cloud Storage, instant alerts, two-way talk, live-view, video management and more. While with the Standard plan you have access to a whopping 30-day Rolling Cloud Storage, plus everything else that’s already included in the free plan. All that would cost you around 3USD per month or 30 USD a year.

Ring Pro

While with Ring Pro, you also have the Free plan, which has two-way audio, theft protection, instant notifications, access to live feed, plus a 1-year warranty.

Yet if you decide to upgrade to Protect Basic or Protect Plus, you’ll receive an even larger video storage history, of up to 60 days! The Protect Plus plan also includes the Ring Alarm coverage, which adds an extra layer of protection for your home.

In terms of cost, the Basic plan comes at 3USD per month, or 30 USD annually, while Protect Plus comes to 10 USD per month, or 100 USD annually.

Difference #5: Design – In terms of size, Ring Pro is slightly bulkier with its dimensions of 4.50” x 1.85” x .80”, while RemoBell S offers a softer, more rounded design, of 1.8” x 0.84” x 5.1”.

Ring Pro also provides more color options to choose from, as it comes with 4 interchangeable colored faceplates. You can choose between Satin Nickel, Pearl, Venetian, and a simple Black, to suit your style.

While RemoBell S only comes in a dark grey tone.

Difference #6: Web App – Now you can easily access your Ring Pro via the web app. This comes in especially handy if your smartphone isn’t working, and you can simply access all your info from your computer.

When your doorbell is pressed, you’ll hear a nice, loud chime, that will also play through the app. Immediately after hearing the chime, you’ll be able to view the video stream and see who or what is on your front porch.

Whether you answer or decline, RemoBell will record a one-minute video and upload it to the cloud for safekeeping. Additionally, a one-minute clip is captured is the doorbell senses motion. When it’s done, it will send a notification to your smartphone.

RemoBell gives you the first 30 days of cloud storage for free, however, after that you’ll have to pay a monthly fee. The fee does include unlimited storage, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you have enough space for your recordings.

Unfortunately, like other video doorbells, RemoBell does not offer an on-demand video option. Additionally, it lacks integration with other smart home systems and devices. The RemoBell is a standalone device that doesn’t even support IFTTT.

The RemoBell mobile application opens to its Recent Activity screen so you can see a list of events like answered, missed, and declined rings. Every event shows the time and date of the video recording, along with a small thumbnail image. Users can click on the thumbnail to play, share, delete, or download the video.

If you click on the three-bar icon in the top left corner of the application, you can view the settings menu. Here you can edit and view your account information, manage your push notifications, check the battery life of your RemoBell, and modify video and sensitivity settings.

Performance and Installation

One nice thing about the RemoBell is that it is very easy to install. You’ll have this video doorbell up and going in no time. Once you install the batteries, download the app onto your smartphone and create your RemoBell account.

Follow the guide within the app to connect to the SSID on the device. You’ll then connect your home wifi network to your RemoBell and enter your wifi password. If everything is done correctly, you should be all set within a matter of minutes. Mount your video doorbell in a place that makes sense near your front door and you’re done!

You’ll get a high-quality video feed with your RemoBell. It’s rich colors and sharp video means you’ll have no trouble seeing who is at the door whether it’s day or night. There is a bit of a lag when you answer a right, which makes carrying on a conversation a bit of a challenge. Additionally, there is room for improvement with the audio quality on the RemoBell.

Even though there are areas where RemoBell can do a better job, the device sends a push notification when the bell is pressed or it detects motion. Each time these events occurred, the device was sure to record a video clip and send it to your smartphone.

RemoBell Wrap-Up

The RemoBell is the perfect smart video doorbell for someone who doesn’t want to mess with a lot of wiring or spend much time on setup. This device provides quality 720p video and always sends an alert when movement is sensed.

However, there are room for improvements with this device as well. The audio quality is poor and real-time video lags. RemoBell does not offer integration with other smart home systems or devices, including IFTT.


The Ring video doorbell is one of the most recognized brands on the market. With all the features the device offers, it’s no wonder why. This device offers 1080p quality video, Amazon Alexa voice support, motion zones customization, and IFTTT integration. It goes without saying this is a top of the line video doorbell.

Features and Design

Ring’s video doorbell checks in at 4.5” high by 1.8” wide by 0.8” deep. This slim device looks more like a standard doorbell than may other video doorbells on the market. The Ring comes with four faceplates, which you can change out at your discretion. You can choose between white, nickel, black, or bronze.

The device also includes mounting screws and anchors, a screwdriver, a wiring kit, extension wires if needed, and an illustrated walkthrough guide.

You’ll get a 160-degree field of vision with your Ring video doorbell, along with 1080p quality video stream. Its three infrafred LEDs means you’ll be able to see up to 30 feet at night. The device also includes a built-in microphone, speaker, motion sensor, and chime.

Ring’s video doorbell supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connections, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not it will work with your router. It does, however, require a two-wire power source, but you already have one connected to your traditional doorbell.

The face of the doorbell includes the button and the camera. Both are surrounded by a blue LED glow that lights up when pressing the button. If you need to get to the setup button on the right side of the device, you can do so by removing the faceplate from the device.

You’ll hear a chime when you press the doorbell button, just like you do with the RemoBell. When this happens, the camera starts recording and a notification is immediately sent to your smartphone. Unfortunately, to view, download, and share your videos, you have to pay a monthly fee.

You can download the Ring mobile application through both the iOS and Android marketplaces. When you launch the app, it defaults to My Devices, so you can see all the Ring devices you have installed in your home. It also offers a Neighborhood setting, which lets you view your neighbor’s videos if they choose to post them.

On the bottom half of the application screen, you’ll see a list of all your historical events. These include live view requests, rings, and motion triggers. You can select any of the events to watch the video clip associated with it. You can also save it, share it, or delete it. If you tap on the Live View button, you can watch a live stream in landscape mode.

Under the Live View option are several buttons which correspond to specific features. Event Histroy will take you to your events list. Linked Chimes allows you to view your doorbell and device ring chime. Device Health lets you see your system status, voltage settings, and wifi strength. Motion Settings is a menu which lets you change motion sensitivity and zones so you can control when you receive alerts and notifications.

The application also includes a Motion Snooze option, letting you disable motion notifications for a set period of time. A Shared Users button lets you add people you want to have the ability to receive alerts and view videos. Lastly, you can select Ring+ so you can connect to other smart home systems or devices like Wink, WeMo, Kevo, and others.

Performance and Installation

Installation of the Ring video doorbell is simple and straightforward thanks to the instructions included in the box. There are also videos available in the mobile app that will walk you through the setup. Of course, if you’re at all uncomfortable with dealing with wiring, contact a professional and have them do it for you.

Follow the instructions to remove the old doorbell and connect your new Ring video doorbell. Pick the housing you want and screw it into your house using the mounting screws. Download the app and set up your Ring account if you don’t already have one. Select and name your device, then press down the button to validate that everything is working as it should.

When that’s done, you’ll be asked to enter your wifi information so the device can connect to your network. It only takes about half a minute for the doorbell to find and connect to your network. Once everything is connected and mounted, you’re all set!

You’ll get a sharp 1080p video with the Ring video doorbell. Both daytime and nighttime video viewing are rich in color with a clear picture. Viewing in the dark provides great vision out to around three yards. The two-way audio isn’t distorted and is plenty loud enough, which is a challenge for some video doorbells.

The Ring’s motion detection works as expected, as does the alert functionality on the device. You’ll receive a notification any time the sensor is tripped or the doorbell is pressed and a video is recorded. Additionally, since the doorbell works with IFTTT, you can integrate creative tasks with other smart home devices.

Ring Wrap-Up

Ring’s video doorbell gives you nearly everything you might want to have in a smart doorbell. Setup and easy and straightforward, it has a sleek design, and offers multiple faceplates. The doorbell gives you a high-quality 1080p quality feed no matter whether you’re viewing during the night or daytime. If you are looking for a great option in the video doorbell area, the Ring is one of the best options available.

Final Thoughts

Both the RemoBell and Ring video doorbells are quality options if you want a smart doorbell. The ability to watch your front porch and know exactly what is going on can be very helpful, especially if you get a lot of packages or visitors. Additionally, you’ll receive an alert that lets you know any time the motion sensor trips and video is captured.

It offers plenty of features and integrates with other smart devices and systems. If you want the latest and greatest, you’re much better off selecting a Ring smart doorbell.
