Why go PRO?
The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is a smaller and smarter member of Ring’s popular video doorbell family. It’s $more expensive than Ring’s second-generation battery-powered device, but this additional investment could considerably cut down on the number of false alerts you receive and leave you a much more satisfied owner.
On the Ring Video Doorbell Pro, detection is based on actual analysis of the video signal. This can be problematic initially, because its sensor notices everything, including trees moving in the wind. But that’s where detection zones come in. Users can draw up to three areas on the screen and limit alerts to just what happens inside those boxes.
Ring’s first two video doorbells will run on either battery power or low-voltage wiring, such as you might have with an existing conventional doorbell. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro must have a wired connection. That’s because the detection system is processing video all the times—a battery would soon be dead.
Bolt Smart Homes can wire and fit your pro doorbell.
By removing the battery, Ring has been able to make the Ring Video Doorbell Pro a bit slimmer and smaller than its first and second generation models, an impressive reduction in volume of more than half.
The Ring Video Doorbell Pro improves on the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and is well worth considering if your house faces an area that’s likely to have lots of traffic, people walking by, or trees swaying in the wind. The extra costs could make you a much happier owner, even if you need to bring power to that location.
