How to choose a Ring Doorbell on Prime Day
So, you’ve decided you need a Ring Doorbell. Now you just have to choose which one is right for you. Let’s say you’re browsing between Ring Doorbell 2nd generation and Ring Doorbell 3 or Ring Doorbell Pro and Ring Doorbell 3; what’s best?
Let’s start with the 2nd-gen, which we could call the entry-level Ring Doorbell. Ring really stepped up their tech for this model. It has a 1080-pixel camera with a 155-degree field of view, plus two-way audio options, motion sensors, and night vision features. They added an additional motion zone, improved the night vision, and added noise cancellation to make your conversations clearer. All this for a standard price of around $100 is a great offer, but that will be discounted for Prime Day. If your needs are modest, but you want to take advantage of Ring Doorbell tech, this could be for you.
The next step up, the Ring Doorbell 3, usually costs about twice as much. The main advantages? This Ring Doorbell has compatibility with the 5GHz band for dual-band routers. It’s also got a sturdier design, if this is something you want to have for a long time, or you’re worried about it getting damaged. The battery is more easily removed as well, which is great news for charging. There’s also a “Plus” version of this Ring Doorbell that has “Pre-Roll” technology; this shows you footage from 4 seconds before the motion sensor kicks on, so it’s a little extra peace of mind.
From there we look to the Pro. This is a Ring Doorbell that’s wired directly into your existing doorbell system. Read: No battery. While this cuts down on the places you can put the Ring Doorbell, if you’re the kind of person who stresses about the battery running out, or having to recharge it, this might be the Ring Doorbell for you. There’s some massive convenience adds to this version as well. Its coordination with Alexa means you can view your Ring Doorbell footage right from an Amazon Echo Show. The design is slimmer and more subtle, as well as some color options for the faceplate: Satin nickel, pearl white, Venetian, and satin black. In terms of features, this is much the same doorbell as the Ring Doorbell 3. The major sway factor here should be the lack of battery. Obviously, if your home doesn’t already have doorbell wiring, this is not the Ring Doorbell for you.
Finally, we come to the Elite. In terms of features, this Ring Doorbell is not much different than the Pro. The real difference is in the design. It’s super slim and elegant. In terms of functionality, the main difference from the Pro is that it cannot utilize the existing doorbell wiring. It gets is juice from the Power over Ethernet protocol via an Ethernet cable. This can be a dealbreaker for certain shoppers, in terms of connectivity, but the reliability factor is unmatched. This is your most dependable Ring Doorbell; you just need to decide if it’s worth the price (usually twice as much as the Pro).
