    Whether you're just 2 streets away or circling the globe, you can rest easy knowing that you can monitor and respond to anyone who comes calling in your absence. It works with a smart speaker and is embedded with motion detection software. One distinguishing feature would be its capacity to capture people faces clearly, even at night.

  • Ring is the answer to every mothers desire to have a doorbell that doesn’t wake a baby Oct 21, 2017

    By Huynh Family iTunes
    I have many ring products that all tie together seamlessly into this app. The video doorbell, new spotlight cam, stick up cam, and the brand new security system. My family, pets and I feel safe away on trips and feel like we have a great prevention from break ins. With the low cost of the video storage for all of our video devices I am always aware of what goes on in or around my house at all times. I feel secure and never have any issues setting up, connecting or using their devices. They all integrate wonderfully and I could not be happier. I have recommended to many friends and family members to get just a ring video doorbell. As a new mom with dogs it was hard when anytime someone rang, packages, whatever, our dogs would wake our baby. Now with Chime, I set a tone that doesn’t illicit barking and am aware when anyone is at the door or rings the doorbell. The motion detection is amazing and really easy to customize to not get everyone hat walks by, or you can if that’s what you want. Absolutely love this company and their products. Every time they come up with something new I’m pleased with how well thought out it is and how well it integrates.
  • Motion zones: BIG STEP backwards!!! Mar 25, 2021

    By magnum6363
    First, I want to say that I have been a fan of Ring for 3 years. In fact, I have recommended Ring over other systems to friends and family many times. I have multiple AC powered only flood cams and doorbell cams around my property. I have AC only cams because of the detail and flexibility in the configuration of multiple motion zones on these devices. However, in a recent update, they removed the Active checkbox that allowed for the selection of one of multiple zones defined on a cam. As a result, you must delete your other 2 motion zones when you need one of them active. Then, when you want them back, you must redefine them! Why is this an issue? Let’s say you have cams looking down on a basketball court. When the team is practicing, you do not need to record all activity. Instead, you just want the area/zone around the court protected by your camera system. If someone enters the zone, you want notified. Otherwise, no alerts. As someone who designs interfaces and software as a profession, I can tell you that this was an unforgivable decision. You need to think long before ever removing a powerful feature that has been inherent for years. For this reason, my experience with the app is now a frustrating experience. I have since stopped recommending Ring. I am now looking for another solution.
  • Love and Hate Product Apr 7, 2018

    By Heiliner
    I love the concept of the product. The reviews about slow lag times are true. To make the cameras functional I have had to purchase two cameras per each location. For example I have a RingPro doorbell and a second camera facing 90 degrees off the other camera. One of the two cameras gets the intruder. I have the same set up for the driveway; two cameras at different locations. The cameras caught some fellow around 2 in the morning walking up into the driveway and trying the door handles of the locked cars. The RingPro extenders don’t have enough range. I have had to purchase a more powerful extender to get the speed and quality up on one of the cameras. The notification on the iPhone cannot be changed so the sound is like tinker bell. I have asked for a vibrate only notification but so far nothing. Bottom Line: don’t expect to purchase ONE camera and have everything work without problems. This product is still being developed. UPDATE: Ring keeps getting better...they have done away with the “tinkled bell” alert sound as the only alert sound and added voice alerts which are much better. Ring has also added a “snooze” function which will stop alerts up to 2 hours.
  • Good technology that needs work Jun 23, 2018

    By Chmsyd
    I must say it is awesome knowing what is going on at home when your away. I gave this product only two stars initially because I have had numerous problems with it ever since I got it. I have had problems with WiFi connection, batteries and poor video quality or delayed play back when someone is either at the door or in my driveway. I contacted Ring support more than I can count and every time I did the same trouble shooting that never fixes the problems, you would be better off getting something that actually works, I am taking it down and replacing it with something that works. I may consider using Ring again when all the problems are fixed, until then better luck next time Update: After speaking with Sam from Ring headquarters, she did everything she could to help me. Sam offered a full refund for the products and stayed in touch even after I received my refund. Because of Sam, I may consider using Ring Cameras in the future. Sam know how to treat a customer and she made sure I was satisfied. I am updating my review to 5 stars because of the service Sam provided me with. This is what I call customer service, Thanks Sam.
  • BAD UPDATE Oct 7, 2018

    By FloridaNeighbor
    I love the concept of the Ring device and instant notifications triggered by motion or a doorbell ring. Unfortunately, this falls short when timing is critical. To only see the back of someone because of the delay in activation defeats the purpose of the device. Now for the recent update. I updated the app, as prompted, to ensure the best results for my security device. BIG MISTAKE!! All of my recordings were deleted! When I tried view even the most recent motion activation, I was able to receive the notification, but I had a message stating my plan was expired attached to every single notification (Motion, Live View and Doorbell). I spent an hour on the phone with customer service as my plan was not expired. The rep couldn’t explain what happened. On a whim, I deleted the app and reinstalled it, and tadah, everything came back. Ring People: if you are reading this, please correct whatever went wrong!!! I didn’t even know that my videos were deleted or that newer stuff was not being recorded until I went into the videos to delete the ones I didn’t want. This is potentially dangerous when homeowners think they are protected by surveillance and that surveillance fails from a flaw in the app without even knowing it until it is too late. Hopefully everything doesn’t get screwy again as I only discovered the issue today.
  • New idea, use AWS for motion tagging Dec 12, 2018

    By Sircoffee
    Use the power of amazons AWS to tag possible motion that sets off my cameras. Simply place a blue or red box around the item triggering the camera detection. Take a still of the video with the item triggering my motion detector and send that image as a notification on my iPhone. That way I can chose to open the app and view the video or see that it was my wife pulling into the driveway. It takes too long for me to move from the notification to the video, even on high speed WiFi with my iPhone XS Max. By the time I view the live video, the item setting off my motion detector may no longer be in frame. Then, I have to wait for the motion history to load the video to your servers in order to view. I spend a minute refreshing the list, all the while the item setting off my motion detector has moved to a new location. I love the cameras and the system overall, but the time delay from notification to viewing my camera feed is too slow and cumbersome. This eventually causes me to pass on viewing some motions. If it happens to me, then I know it happens to others. One day my lack of motivation is going to cause harm and render your services null, the whole reason I’ve paid for cameras and video storage in the first place.
  • Floodlight Cam needs more control of lights Nov 4, 2017

    By MDK1705
    I own both a ring doorbell and a ring floodlight cam. Overall I am pleased with both. The cameras are excellent, day and night. The motion sensing is almost perfect (but occasionally does miss activity). Notifications are almost immediate (most of the time). I purchased the Floodlight cam to replace a motion sensing fixture that had a photocell for dusk to dawn operation year round at 50% intensity until it detected motion, then 100% intensity until no longer detecting motion. This was a great product that worked well. The ring floodlight cam was advertised to have a dusk to dawn feature but all I can find is to set specific on/off times, even though dusk and dawn change throughout the year. I have yet to find a way to program the lights to come on at dusk and off at dawn regardless of time of year. FAQ said that although dimmability was not available yet it would be offered in a later update. When I purchased the floodlight cam I was promised by the ring rep that it would be an available feature soon. I’m still waiting for the dimmer feature. I’ve tried to leave the lights on all night but my neighbors say it is too bright and shines in their windows. Please update the app with both the dawn to dusk feature and the dimmer feature as promised. Then I will be pleased to give 5 stars.

    There should be an option for notifications to show sensitive information on the lock screen, which override any system settings. I do not want to unlock my phone to view the pictures. I also request that shared users not have access to the Live View feature (on/off). The ring doorbells work great on live feed, but the ring security cams randomly give me an "activating" message when I attempt to live view.
  • Newest update Dec 22, 2019

    By Fallen_Anjel
    Either something happened with the new update or idk what. I’ve been using my two spotlight cams for 9 months now. The doorbell for 20 months. I have a Wasserstein solar panel hooked up to one spotlight cam. The battery stopped charging two weeks ago. That’s another story. I haven’t used these cameras in the cold yet. We had a few cold nights in the teens. I thought maybe it was the cold so I brought them all inside, charged batteries for over 12 hours. Even tho the website says operating temp is like 4°. But that’s the operating temp or the DEVICE. I’m wondering what the operating temp of the BATTERIES are. Installed everything again. Solar panel still not charging battery. (I’ll deal with Wasserstein later). In all three products the video is choppy and pixelating and slow. I cannot touch the screen to dismiss the onscreen controls. Nothing has changed in my WiFi settings. The router is in the same spot it’s been for four years. This seems to have started after the recent update. I have 4 stars because while they do what I mostly want there is a LOT of room for improvement. If I could install a real security system I would but I rent and can’t be drilling holes into the house or the walls or floors for wires. Please check into this.

    Too many times I get the never ending loading screen. I close the app reopen and I still get the never ending loading circle . There's been too many times I had to get up and go open the door and look because the live view has the never-ending load Circle. Except were the camera is too far to go look. In that case I just say well I hope no one was there, I couldn't see him. A lot of times it also says processing video but it takes too long . Is it the app , the phone signal what causes this?
  • Ring 2 not ready for prime time Aug 17, 2018

    By 581 Ford
    I have a Ring 2 that’s almost worthless. I am receiving alerts but they’re several seconds delayed. My settings are set to be as fast and sensitive as possible. Same problem many other of your other customers complain about. I wish you would at least have the option of turning off the 10 minute timer that shuts down live view. Should be the customers decision to drain the battery in live view. That’s why I bought an extra battery. Also, one of the times I tried calling you I was given the option of making an appointment for you to call me back but you never did. And Kaitlyn@Ring, don’t bother to paste your typical reply telling me to email you because you’re so concerned. I’ve read your response back to other customers so many times that I’ve memorized it. Customers should realize if you have to paste that same cookie cutter reply addressing everyone’s concern then Ring and your customers have a really big problem. I’m connected to my 2.4 GHz network and hitting roughly 8Mbps at -53 dBm power. Being an engineer I realize that the business unit and marketing/sales have more say than the technical staff at most companies. The technical people rarely want to release the product before it’s ready but the business side always makes that happen which is why your commercials on TV are so great but your product has a lot to be desired. And you Kaitlyn, I’m not sure which side of the house you’re on but I hope they’re paying you well.

    Do yourself a favor and go with Google Nest. Live view NEVER works, and don't even bother trying to answer a doorbell ring. It'll just sit there and load and then tell you it can't connect. EVERY new update adds some little bell and whistle to the app but all of it is trash when you can't even see who's walking up to the damn door!!! I'm basically paying for a yearly service that I can't even use. When I 1st installed it, it worked great, but now it's just a really expensive piece of junk.
  • Gift from hell May 13, 2020

    By upsettyspaghetti1101
    We got a ring for Christmas last year and were so excited to set it up! It had always sounded like a nice idea to be able to check who was at the door and I park on the street in front of our house so I could keep an eye on that as well. I think the only time motion is detected is when I walk walk out the front door myself or if a car drives by. I’ve had deliveries arrive and people knock on the door and there’s no motion detected and no recording in sight. Luckily the doorbell function seems to work (unless the battery is dead which is every other week) and I’ll never know who is at the door because of all the connectivity issues and super long waiting times to load the feed (even after upgrading the internet several times). Our neighborhood has had several instances of car parts stolen and even a break in at our neighbors and of course every time the battery has either been dead, no connection during the time it occurred to record, or simply no motion detected. Don’t even get me started on the online community! I shared a video I did catch of a strange man taking pictures of my neighbors house (two days before the break in) and was repeatedly called stupid and a terrible person for not calling the police despite the first sentence of the post stating the police had already been called and this was a warning to others that saw him in the neighborhood. Save yourself the time, money, and frustration and keep it simple with a button and a battery.

    When the stick up cam 2nd cam and the app actually work in unison with each other which is a fully functional camera from both sides, then I will give it more than 1 star. The system says that the camera is ready and functional, the app is stating it is not. This has been happening since your last update. I've installed an uninstalled the app several times and it still the same outcome. I see more bugs were added than fixed apparently.
  • Major Glitch in This App Jun 11, 2020

    By professorofenglish
    There is a major flaw in the Ring app for iPhones. Whenever I’m alerted of motion or the presence of a person in front of my Ring camera, the recorded video of the incident is visible but never available/clickable. I can see this most recent recording on the history page, but it won’t open, yet all of the other recordings can be opened and played. I then have to close out the app that I had just opened and access the recording after that. This is a waste of time that could be dangerous if someone were trespassing on my property and looking to break in. I even made sure to download the update for the app, yet this problem still persists consistently. What is the point of having a security camera if I have to twiddle my thumbs and jump through hoops to watch the video that alerted me of the presence of unexpected motion? Being alerted at 3 a.m. of motion and then having to open and close the app a couple of times before knowing what triggered the alert is nerve-wracking. This needs to be fixed ASAP. We spent a lot of money on three Ring cameras, which are only as good as the software that comes with them. I want to add that it takes forever to connect with the live view for one of my cameras, which makes that camera virtually worthless. I always have to walk to that side of the house and look out the window after receiving an alert about motion that was detected there.

    The app is ok. A few quirks, but most thing are pretty easy regarding the app. Devices are another matter. Cameras and doorbell work similarly and are the best part of the product line. Too bad the lighting and alarms are more like loosely integrated products from another company than like truly part of a family of products. Lights need a bridge which is a single point of failure that fails often. They have a problem with the bridge connecting to wifi consistently. I haven't tried the alarm.

    App is slow at best. By the time I get my notification, the event had already happened. And please turn off the stupid notifications for "new features" for your app. Slapping our face to "notify" us is fine but to FORCE us to use the garage delivery is silly! It's great you show the option but take it away once we read about it, just like the other ads! Why do I have to sign up for it to make the stupid notification to go away! Very close to removing all my 3 Ring cameras!
  • Can’t chime and stops working randomly Jul 19, 2019

    By Km jailjljh
    We’ve had our Ring Pro for over two years and have intermittently had an issue where it would stop working right after someone rang the doorbell and wouldn’t work again until it was unplugged and plugged back in. This issue has been prevalent since a few months after we purchased. Any time I called customer service they would just have me run a reset and say it was working again and that there was nothing else they could do for me. Well finally a customer service person was unexpectedly helpful and had me do all sorts of tests to check how much power it was getting and come to find out it gets enough power, but there’s some sort of ‘fluke’ issue some of the doorbells have that prevent them from being able to operate all the time when the in-house chime is also activated. And wouldn’t it happen to be that we finally figured the cause of this problem out a few months after the warranty period expired. They were gracious enough to offer a discount on purchasing a new one, but if I didn’t want to buy another possibly faulty doorbell I would need to deactivate my internal chime, and just keep checking my app to see when it stops working so I can go home and perform another reset. I just got done with another reset because I realized today that my doorbell hasn’t worked for over a week. I would definitely not recommend this doorbell to anyone, and I will be searching for a replacement as soon as I finish posting this review.

    Timeline is, really, an "answer" for a question nobody asked. History does the same thing; to make settings changes you now need to hit MORE buttons to access the controls than before. Also, Modes does not allow control of Motion for Lights, meaning that you need to manually take control instead of setting up a pattern (in "Disabled" or "Home")
  • Write down your serial numbers! Apr 27, 2021

    By Stewbabyq
    Ring does not keep your serial numbers in the app nor in your account. If your device is stolen and the police want the serial number, it is not easy to get. After searching all over the app and your account and you cannot find it you decide to search for a phone number to call Ring. When you finally get a human on the phone and you explain that your device was stolen and the detective needs the serial number and the human tries to tell you where to find the serial number in your stolen device, you about lose it. She finally got it for me. Then I asked about the report that I filed with Ring to try to get a replacement device, she found it supposedly. I never got ANY response from Ring after I sent it in. None. After I got off the phone with the rep I got a customer service survey AND the same email that I had gotten before on how to file the report about a stolen device. Why did I get this? Do I have to fill it out again? Just write down your serial numbers. With all of that said, I have to say that the app has gotten VERY SLOW. I used to love my Ring cameras over my Arlo ones. This has changed. The Arlo app is so much better and faster and you can easily flip through videos without closing one and opening the next or trying to keep a timeline from resetting to the end. Get it together Ring. I have 9 of your cameras and I will probably switch back to Arlo if you continue to slide.

My family, pets and I feel safe away on trips and feel like we have a great prevention from break ins. With the low cost of the video storage for all of our video devices I am always aware of what goes on in or around my house at all times. I feel secure and never have any issues setting up, connecting or using their devices. They all integrate wonderfully and I could not be happier. I have recommended to many friends and family members to get just a ring video doorbell. As a new mom with dogs it was hard when anytime someone rang, packages, whatever, our dogs would wake our baby. Now with Chime, I set a tone that doesn’t illicit barking and am aware when anyone is at the door or rings the doorbell. The motion detection is amazing and really easy to customize to not get everyone hat walks by, or you can if that’s what you want. Absolutely love this company and their products. Every time they come up with something new I’m pleased with how well thought out it is and how well it integrates.
  • Love and Hate Product Apr 7, 2018

    By Heiliner
    I love the concept of the product. The reviews about slow lag times are true. To make the cameras functional I have had to purchase two cameras per each location. For example I have a RingPro doorbell and a second camera facing 90 degrees off the other camera. One of the two cameras gets the intruder. I have the same set up for the driveway; two cameras at different locations. The cameras caught some fellow around 2 in the morning walking up into the driveway and trying the door handles of the locked cars. The RingPro extenders don’t have enough range. I have had to purchase a more powerful extender to get the speed and quality up on one of the cameras. The notification on the iPhone cannot be changed so the sound is like tinker bell. I have asked for a vibrate only notification but so far nothing. Bottom Line: don’t expect to purchase ONE camera and have everything work without problems. This product is still being developed. UPDATE: Ring keeps getting better...they have done away with the “tinkled bell” alert sound as the only alert sound and added voice alerts which are much better. Ring has also added a “snooze” function which will stop alerts up to 2 hours.
  • Good technology that needs work Jun 23, 2018

    By Chmsyd
    I must say it is awesome knowing what is going on at home when your away. I gave this product only two stars initially because I have had numerous problems with it ever since I got it. I have had problems with WiFi connection, batteries and poor video quality or delayed play back when someone is either at the door or in my driveway. I contacted Ring support more than I can count and every time I did the same trouble shooting that never fixes the problems, you would be better off getting something that actually works, I am taking it down and replacing it with something that works. I may consider using Ring again when all the problems are fixed, until then better luck next time Update: After speaking with Sam from Ring headquarters, she did everything she could to help me. Sam offered a full refund for the products and stayed in touch even after I received my refund. Because of Sam, I may consider using Ring Cameras in the future. Sam know how to treat a customer and she made sure I was satisfied. I am updating my review to 5 stars because of the service Sam provided me with. This is what I call customer service, Thanks Sam.
  • Ring missing basic features Aug 17, 2019

    By Hayxfg76
    Giving only 3 stars for missing features that I have been asking through emails, Twitter, Facebook and phone calls for almost two years! One basic one is ability to turn off or at lest snooze recordings. Currently it is a nightmare with tons of videos both ring doorbell pro and floodlight camera is producing. I taking about my activities like cleaning the front porch, daily watering my plants, or just hanging out on my own porch - I don’t want to be recorded, I don’t need additional 100 videos for that hour. The same with my backyard floodlight camera. Cutting grass, any yard work, any activity my own produces 100s of videos to manage and sort through. Ring doesn’t have time to add feature to add ability to better control recordings but do have time to add linked devices!! I tried it and guess what now both of my cameras produce twice of junk videos instead of 200 videos now I’m getting 400. Ridiculous, seriously I’m thinking about switching to different product, I hope ring support is reading this review!!!!
  • New idea, use AWS for motion tagging Dec 12, 2018

    By Sircoffee
    Use the power of amazons AWS to tag possible motion that sets off my cameras. Simply place a blue or red box around the item triggering the camera detection. Take a still of the video with the item triggering my motion detector and send that image as a notification on my iPhone. That way I can chose to open the app and view the video or see that it was my wife pulling into the driveway. It takes too long for me to move from the notification to the video, even on high speed WiFi with my iPhone XS Max. By the time I view the live video, the item setting off my motion detector may no longer be in frame. Then, I have to wait for the motion history to load the video to your servers in order to view. I spend a minute refreshing the list, all the while the item setting off my motion detector has moved to a new location. I love the cameras and the system overall, but the time delay from notification to viewing my camera feed is too slow and cumbersome. This eventually causes me to pass on viewing some motions. If it happens to me, then I know it happens to others. One day my lack of motivation is going to cause harm and render your services null, the whole reason I’ve paid for cameras and video storage in the first place.

    There should be an option for notifications to show sensitive information on the lock screen, which override any system settings. I do not want to unlock my phone to view the pictures. I also request that shared users not have access to the Live View feature (on/off). The ring doorbells work great on live feed, but the ring security cams randomly give me an "activating" message when I attempt to live view.
  • Newest update Dec 22, 2019

    By Fallen_Anjel
    Either something happened with the new update or idk what. I’ve been using my two spotlight cams for 9 months now. The doorbell for 20 months. I have a Wasserstein solar panel hooked up to one spotlight cam. The battery stopped charging two weeks ago. That’s another story. I haven’t used these cameras in the cold yet. We had a few cold nights in the teens. I thought maybe it was the cold so I brought them all inside, charged batteries for over 12 hours. Even tho the website says operating temp is like 4°. But that’s the operating temp or the DEVICE. I’m wondering what the operating temp of the BATTERIES are. Installed everything again. Solar panel still not charging battery. (I’ll deal with Wasserstein later). In all three products the video is choppy and pixelating and slow. I cannot touch the screen to dismiss the onscreen controls. Nothing has changed in my WiFi settings. The router is in the same spot it’s been for four years. This seems to have started after the recent update. I have 4 stars because while they do what I mostly want there is a LOT of room for improvement. If I could install a real security system I would but I rent and can’t be drilling holes into the house or the walls or floors for wires. Please check into this.
  • Motion zones: BIG STEP backwards!!! Mar 25, 2021

    By magnum6363
    First, I want to say that I have been a fan of Ring for 3 years. In fact, I have recommended Ring over other systems to friends and family many times. I have multiple AC powered only flood cams and doorbell cams around my property. I have AC only cams because of the detail and flexibility in the configuration of multiple motion zones on these devices. However, in a recent update, they removed the Active checkbox that allowed for the selection of one of multiple zones defined on a cam. As a result, you must delete your other 2 motion zones when you need one of them active. Then, when you want them back, you must redefine them! Why is this an issue? Let’s say you have cams looking down on a basketball court. When the team is practicing, you do not need to record all activity. Instead, you just want the area/zone around the court protected by your camera system. If someone enters the zone, you want notified. Otherwise, no alerts. As someone who designs interfaces and software as a profession, I can tell you that this was an unforgivable decision. You need to think long before ever removing a powerful feature that has been inherent for years. For this reason, my experience with the app is now a frustrating experience. I have since stopped recommending Ring. I am now looking for another solution.
  • BAD UPDATE Oct 7, 2018

    By FloridaNeighbor
    I love the concept of the Ring device and instant notifications triggered by motion or a doorbell ring. Unfortunately, this falls short when timing is critical. To only see the back of someone because of the delay in activation defeats the purpose of the device. Now for the recent update. I updated the app, as prompted, to ensure the best results for my security device. BIG MISTAKE!! All of my recordings were deleted! When I tried view even the most recent motion activation, I was able to receive the notification, but I had a message stating my plan was expired attached to every single notification (Motion, Live View and Doorbell). I spent an hour on the phone with customer service as my plan was not expired. The rep couldn’t explain what happened. On a whim, I deleted the app and reinstalled it, and tadah, everything came back. Ring People: if you are reading this, please correct whatever went wrong!!! I didn’t even know that my videos were deleted or that newer stuff was not being recorded until I went into the videos to delete the ones I didn’t want. This is potentially dangerous when homeowners think they are protected by surveillance and that surveillance fails from a flaw in the app without even knowing it until it is too late. Hopefully everything doesn’t get screwy again as I only discovered the issue today.
  • Floodlight Cam needs more control of lights Nov 4, 2017

    By MDK1705
    I own both a ring doorbell and a ring floodlight cam. Overall I am pleased with both. The cameras are excellent, day and night. The motion sensing is almost perfect (but occasionally does miss activity). Notifications are almost immediate (most of the time). I purchased the Floodlight cam to replace a motion sensing fixture that had a photocell for dusk to dawn operation year round at 50% intensity until it detected motion, then 100% intensity until no longer detecting motion. This was a great product that worked well. The ring floodlight cam was advertised to have a dusk to dawn feature but all I can find is to set specific on/off times, even though dusk and dawn change throughout the year. I have yet to find a way to program the lights to come on at dusk and off at dawn regardless of time of year. FAQ said that although dimmability was not available yet it would be offered in a later update. When I purchased the floodlight cam I was promised by the ring rep that it would be an available feature soon. I’m still waiting for the dimmer feature. I’ve tried to leave the lights on all night but my neighbors say it is too bright and shines in their windows. Please update the app with both the dawn to dusk feature and the dimmer feature as promised. Then I will be pleased to give 5 stars.

    Too many times I get the never ending loading screen. I close the app reopen and I still get the never ending loading circle . There's been too many times I had to get up and go open the door and look because the live view has the never-ending load Circle. Except were the camera is too far to go look. In that case I just say well I hope no one was there, I couldn't see him. A lot of times it also says processing video but it takes too long . Is it the app , the phone signal what causes this?
  • Jan 8, 2022

    By David Cald
    At least once a day it will not record movement because of some type of glitch. The time line in that spot will be black or when you go to look at the motion it will just sit and load but never go anywhere. Either way the video gets corrupted and is unviewable. If you ask Ring about it they will just blame your internet connection.... And why won't you guys allow a VPN?
  • Ring 2 not ready for prime time Aug 17, 2018

    By 581 Ford
    I have a Ring 2 that’s almost worthless. I am receiving alerts but they’re several seconds delayed. My settings are set to be as fast and sensitive as possible. Same problem many other of your other customers complain about. I wish you would at least have the option of turning off the 10 minute timer that shuts down live view. Should be the customers decision to drain the battery in live view. That’s why I bought an extra battery. Also, one of the times I tried calling you I was given the option of making an appointment for you to call me back but you never did. And Kaitlyn@Ring, don’t bother to paste your typical reply telling me to email you because you’re so concerned. I’ve read your response back to other customers so many times that I’ve memorized it. Customers should realize if you have to paste that same cookie cutter reply addressing everyone’s concern then Ring and your customers have a really big problem. I’m connected to my 2.4 GHz network and hitting roughly 8Mbps at -53 dBm power. Being an engineer I realize that the business unit and marketing/sales have more say than the technical staff at most companies. The technical people rarely want to release the product before it’s ready but the business side always makes that happen which is why your commercials on TV are so great but your product has a lot to be desired. And you Kaitlyn, I’m not sure which side of the house you’re on but I hope they’re paying you well.
  • Major Glitch in This App Jun 11, 2020

    By professorofenglish
    There is a major flaw in the Ring app for iPhones. Whenever I’m alerted of motion or the presence of a person in front of my Ring camera, the recorded video of the incident is visible but never available/clickable. I can see this most recent recording on the history page, but it won’t open, yet all of the other recordings can be opened and played. I then have to close out the app that I had just opened and access the recording after that. This is a waste of time that could be dangerous if someone were trespassing on my property and looking to break in. I even made sure to download the update for the app, yet this problem still persists consistently. What is the point of having a security camera if I have to twiddle my thumbs and jump through hoops to watch the video that alerted me of the presence of unexpected motion? Being alerted at 3 a.m. of motion and then having to open and close the app a couple of times before knowing what triggered the alert is nerve-wracking. This needs to be fixed ASAP. We spent a lot of money on three Ring cameras, which are only as good as the software that comes with them. I want to add that it takes forever to connect with the live view for one of my cameras, which makes that camera virtually worthless. I always have to walk to that side of the house and look out the window after receiving an alert about motion that was detected there.

    The app is ok. A few quirks, but most thing are pretty easy regarding the app. Devices are another matter. Cameras and doorbell work similarly and are the best part of the product line. Too bad the lighting and alarms are more like loosely integrated products from another company than like truly part of a family of products. Lights need a bridge which is a single point of failure that fails often. They have a problem with the bridge connecting to wifi consistently. I haven't tried the alarm.

    App is slow at best. By the time I get my notification, the event had already happened. And please turn off the stupid notifications for "new features" for your app. Slapping our face to "notify" us is fine but to FORCE us to use the garage delivery is silly! It's great you show the option but take it away once we read about it, just like the other ads! Why do I have to sign up for it to make the stupid notification to go away! Very close to removing all my 3 Ring cameras!

    Timeline is, really, an "answer" for a question nobody asked. History does the same thing; to make settings changes you now need to hit MORE buttons to access the controls than before. Also, Modes does not allow control of Motion for Lights, meaning that you need to manually take control instead of setting up a pattern (in "Disabled" or "Home")

    The device in my front door is not reliable at all, most of the times it will not notify me some one at the front door or bell ring, won't update to current video while the backyard works well, this has been going on for months and I have called in a couple of times so there has to be standing tickets on these calls. Considering changing to something else soon if this situation is not fixed.

    Door sensors work fine, but the app is horrible. I can't ever log in, and the two factor authentication refuses to send a verification code to my listed email. I have tried using a previously authenticated device, per their Help page. I am now using Wyze cams (which are cheap and work great), and I am searching for a new solution for a security app and door sensors. I don't have time to call customer support every time I want to use the app. Annoying.
  • Good, but not as good as we thought Oct 22, 2017

    By JuanB001300
    We like that we get the chimes straight to our phones and we can talk to people through the chimes. Motion is great. Live view only worked once for us and it was bad quality and kind of annoying that we can talk and see people clearly when the ring communicates to the phone but not when the phone communicates to the ring. Night vision is very over exposed. Faces are not recognizable. Sometimes motion activation is very late. Not all the time but that takes things down a notch on the trust factor. Battery also died after a week after charging. Thought it would be at least a couple months before we had to recharge. Might have to find a better option as we don’t have a doorbell wire so we have to rely on battery power. We’ll use it for a while before we make our decision but as of right now we’re just kind of happy with what we got. Btw the chat bot for troubleshooting is very slow. Found articles online faster than it gave me answers. Waited 5 min for it to reply. Actually had to send a message to wake it up. Update: trying to setup “spotlight cam battery” but because of the live view issue above. Don’t know what it is but motion is working but live view can’t? Is there anyone from ring that can help? Assistance is lacking, main feature of device doesn’t work. Rating drop and almost ready to send back.

    Do yourself a favor and go with Google Nest. Live view NEVER works, and don't even bother trying to answer a doorbell ring. It'll just sit there and load and then tell you it can't connect. EVERY new update adds some little bell and whistle to the app but all of it is trash when you can't even see who's walking up to the damn door!!! I'm basically paying for a yearly service that I can't even use. When I 1st installed it, it worked great, but now it's just a really expensive piece of junk.
  • Gift from hell May 13, 2020

    By upsettyspaghetti1101
    We got a ring for Christmas last year and were so excited to set it up! It had always sounded like a nice idea to be able to check who was at the door and I park on the street in front of our house so I could keep an eye on that as well. I think the only time motion is detected is when I walk walk out the front door myself or if a car drives by. I’ve had deliveries arrive and people knock on the door and there’s no motion detected and no recording in sight. Luckily the doorbell function seems to work (unless the battery is dead which is every other week) and I’ll never know who is at the door because of all the connectivity issues and super long waiting times to load the feed (even after upgrading the internet several times). Our neighborhood has had several instances of car parts stolen and even a break in at our neighbors and of course every time the battery has either been dead, no connection during the time it occurred to record, or simply no motion detected. Don’t even get me started on the online community! I shared a video I did catch of a strange man taking pictures of my neighbors house (two days before the break in) and was repeatedly called stupid and a terrible person for not calling the police despite the first sentence of the post stating the police had already been called and this was a warning to others that saw him in the neighborhood. Save yourself the time, money, and frustration and keep it simple with a button and a battery.

    When the stick up cam 2nd cam and the app actually work in unison with each other which is a fully functional camera from both sides, then I will give it more than 1 star. The system says that the camera is ready and functional, the app is stating it is not. This has been happening since your last update. I've installed an uninstalled the app several times and it still the same outcome. I see more bugs were added than fixed apparently.
  • Can’t chime and stops working randomly Jul 19, 2019

    By Km jailjljh
    We’ve had our Ring Pro for over two years and have intermittently had an issue where it would stop working right after someone rang the doorbell and wouldn’t work again until it was unplugged and plugged back in. This issue has been prevalent since a few months after we purchased. Any time I called customer service they would just have me run a reset and say it was working again and that there was nothing else they could do for me. Well finally a customer service person was unexpectedly helpful and had me do all sorts of tests to check how much power it was getting and come to find out it gets enough power, but there’s some sort of ‘fluke’ issue some of the doorbells have that prevent them from being able to operate all the time when the in-house chime is also activated. And wouldn’t it happen to be that we finally figured the cause of this problem out a few months after the warranty period expired. They were gracious enough to offer a discount on purchasing a new one, but if I didn’t want to buy another possibly faulty doorbell I would need to deactivate my internal chime, and just keep checking my app to see when it stops working so I can go home and perform another reset. I just got done with another reset because I realized today that my doorbell hasn’t worked for over a week. I would definitely not recommend this doorbell to anyone, and I will be searching for a replacement as soon as I finish posting this review.
  • Write down your serial numbers! Apr 27, 2021

    By Stewbabyq
    Ring does not keep your serial numbers in the app nor in your account. If your device is stolen and the police want the serial number, it is not easy to get. After searching all over the app and your account and you cannot find it you decide to search for a phone number to call Ring. When you finally get a human on the phone and you explain that your device was stolen and the detective needs the serial number and the human tries to tell you where to find the serial number in your stolen device, you about lose it. She finally got it for me. Then I asked about the report that I filed with Ring to try to get a replacement device, she found it supposedly. I never got ANY response from Ring after I sent it in. None. After I got off the phone with the rep I got a customer service survey AND the same email that I had gotten before on how to file the report about a stolen device. Why did I get this? Do I have to fill it out again? Just write down your serial numbers. With all of that said, I have to say that the app has gotten VERY SLOW. I used to love my Ring cameras over my Arlo ones. This has changed. The Arlo app is so much better and faster and you can easily flip through videos without closing one and opening the next or trying to keep a timeline from resetting to the end. Get it together Ring. I have 9 of your cameras and I will probably switch back to Arlo if you continue to slide.

    Absolute garbage app that always crashes. Constantly pushed you to buy products without an easy way to shut off the ads. Poor layout of different sensors, hard to see their status without going through multiple menus. Would recommend people use a different service until Ring can get it's act together. Update: I moved and haven't set up in a new location yet. The app won't let me temporarily disable the location or shut off notifications so I had to disable it through my phone.
  • Connection error cannot load your locations. It’s been like this for a month. Ring can’t fix Oct 18, 2018

    By Mark evens 601
    Ring technical support has done nothing but make excuses for the past month. They refuse to refund my money for the monthly service they can’t supply. Refused to refund for the doorbells I purchased .they are not usable on their app Any longer . It reads the locations will not load. Bottom line they blocked me out of my account. But they continue to claim that it’s a bug in their system. I have spoken with several of their customer service reps. Each one has a different story and different line of BS. Appears they read off a 3 x 5 cards and have no clue what they’re really doing. Although based in the United States I still feel service is no better than what I get if you were calling overseas. My last two phone calls requesting supervisors were left on hold for over two hours. No one ever came on. Eventually I hung up . Very bad customer service. My first ring was original before they change their name. My current one is less than eight months old . The old one and new ones are still in service. We cannot access the system through any of the phones we own ,computers or iPads. With the lack of knowledge customer support has about their product in their inability to fix the problems. I would think very hard before purchasing any of their equipment. Also as a follow-up I am still waiting for return call for the last five days. Never came!!
  • Updated review......Doesn’t always record. Apr 10, 2018

    By LaciDRoy
    Update! Ring sent me a new ring doorbell as well as a chime extender. Very nice of them. However, now when my videos record, it’s just a black screen 2 out of 3 recordings. The videos that do actually record, some of them are basically just a frozen screen shot but no video. So I’m paying to keep these videos, that do me absolutely no good. I’ve been troubleshooting with an Ashlei O. But can’t figure it out. I’ve done everything she asked. I’ve sent her 6 emails since her email telling me what to try. She just won’t respond to me. It’s now been a week since I’ve heard from any one that can possibly help me. Not sure if they sent me a refurbished ring which is why it’s having issues. My internet connection is great. My router is in a good place. I have no idea. But a few of my clients that have come to my home this last week have asked about my ring doorbell. I’ll continue to tell them to stay far away until someone actually calls or emails me to figure out the broken replacement ring doorbell that they sent me. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if I have a defective ring doorbell. It will only occasionally alert me when someone comes to my front door. I had a group of kids, on my porch, leaving a derogatory comment spelled out in rocks, and it didn’t record them at all. I would’ve loved to see who that was. But it’ll record a car driving by on the street in front of me. Not really worth the money.

    After the latest update my live and recorded videos freeze and unfreeze and are delayed when viewing. I used to use the cameras to keep an eye on my kids, but there's too much of a delay, I don't trust it anymore. And the cameras will pick up a mosquito, but not my car entering and leaving my driveway, which is right on front of the camera!

    Ring has become totally useless for us! We have had installed since 2019 and were very pleased with it. Notifications just stopped on our phones in the last 6 weeks and we thought we had done something. Now I see everyone complaining about a recent update and I see it wasn't us clicking off something. What is the use of having a product that doesnt notify you when someone is at your door. I would not recommend Ring and we are looking for something else. Just fix it!
