    By but great product!

    • Expandable with Chime (Pro)
    • Apple Watch notifications
    • Connecting to old doorbell cables
    • Also works on battery
    • Night vision works well
    • Needs excellent WiFi signal
    • App not yet optimized for iPhone X
    • Ring customer service is (was?) English

    I've had the Ring Doorbell 2 on my door for about two months now. What an invention!

    Do you expect a package but not at home? Pick up the bell and pass on a message to the delivery person.
    On an upper floor and still have a quick look who is at the door before you walk down?
    The Ring is waiting for you!

    After some problems with the installation (it was not entirely clear to me how to connect the bell to the old bell, and which transformers/chimes are compatible with this) and reliability of the ringing on the phone, I contacted Ring customer service called. It turned out that the firmware was not up to date; if you have problems with the signal or reliability, check whether the Ring is completely updated and otherwise call customer service, they can watch remotely and can help very well. I don't know if it's still the case, but the customer service is English.

    After the firmware update, everything is fixed and the app on iPhone always gives a notification within 2 seconds.

    By default, you can't review the saved images, but with Ring Protect, the images are stored directly in the cloud; this costs €3 per camera. If you compare this with competitors, this is actually a good amount.

    With the Chime you can also make a sound at another location in the house (for example, upstairs). The Chime Pro does the same but also extends the signal for the doorbell.

    All in all, very satisfied with the Doorbell 2; The image quality is good if you have a good signal. Just works well!

    • easy to install
    • good picture
    • notifications on the Apple Watch
    • old doorbell can be connected to it
    • bell transformer charges battery
    • fairly large

    Thought about it for a long time, but after a colleague showed his Ring the switch was turned, the reason was that the old bell could not be heard in the room and handy to be able to see who is at the door even if we are not at home.

    The installation is simple, just follow the clear steps in the app. When everything is set up, let the Ring quietly perform all updates, make sure that the WiFi connection is good. We have the Google Wifi, this ensures that the wifi connection is very good, and you notice that with the speed that I have a live feed.

    A chime is handy, it can be plugged into any socket, so that you can also hear the bell in the garden, for example. Play with the settings, especially with the motion detection. The melody of the bell cannot be adjusted, but it can be adjusted in volume. The melody in the app against it can be adjusted again.

    The Motion zones can be completely adjusted, this can be done during the installation or after the installation. The frequency of detecting and giving a notification can also be adjusted, with the added bonus of a schedule when motion can and may be detected.

    The Cloud storage service is convenient and inexpensive, just 3 euros per month, after a one-month free trial.

    Super picture
    • Easy to install
    • Very bright and clear image
    • I can now answer everyone who rings the doorbell

    I've had the Ring video doorbell for a few weeks now. We are very happy with the wireless video doorbell. Easy to install, good quality and clear images, we can answer anyone who rings the doorbell, even if we are not at home. We feel a lot safer with the motion detector. Recommended!

    Misleading promos
    • Completeness, mounting options
    • Doorbell 2 has no zoning as mentioned in the promo videos. This is very misleading.

    Product returned because zoning is not possible. This is only on the more expensive pro version.

    Very satisfied after some experiments
    • Charges via the bell transformer
    • adjustable detection zones
    • Old mechanical bell just keeps working
    • Live view via GSM starts up quickly
    • bit big
    • only two color housing
    • Live view after a WiFi network switch takes a bit long

    For proper operation in the back of the garden, I bought a second Linksys N300 WiFi access point and connected it to a UTP cable that was already in the back room behind an ethernet switch. After setting up the same WiFi SSID for my KPN Experia box v9, I now have perfect coverage from front to back with live view or when someone rings the doorbell. A nice "ding-dong" immediately blares from the iPhone in my pocket or the Apple Watch vibrates and shows a message "someone is at the front door". The iPhone automatically switches from one access point to another, but after a switch it takes a while for the live view to work. If you stay on the same network, it works like a charm.
    If the WiFi connection with the iPhone is weak, the RING 2 will protest earlier with the connection setup. There are then two solutions: 1) Turn on your WiFi and use the GSM network; this works really well but costs MBs from your bundle. 2) Install a second access point (this is not a repeater) as mentioned above. Be careful with a WiFi repeater, if it is too far away from the source you will have the same problem. You can easily test the "packet loss" with the iPhone/Android program Network Analyzer (I have the pro version). There should be no packet errors. You can consider setting 5.8 GHz in the access point, but it gets less far but has fewer disruptors. With mine I got bad back in the yard, so stayed on 2.4 GHz.
    Fortunately, my RING2 is 1 meter from the KPN router, so it sends the packets error-free in any case. The connection with the receiver must therefore also be good.
    The Ckoud storage service is also handy and only costs 3 euros per month after a free trial of one month. With the "motion detection" on you can later see that the newspaper deliverer already delivers the newspaper at 6:15 AM.
    Furthermore, the installation is simple. I have an old brass bell, you just connect the wires from the doorbell to the RING 2. When someone calls, the wire is short-circuited so that the old bell continues to work and a message is sent to the iPhone which then rings simultaneously. The RING app runs on two iPhones and switches neatly to both with a custom ringtone.
    Just enough current flows through the wires of the old push button to charge the battery and the current is so low that the bell just doesn't ring. Charge the battery via USB the first time and then don't worry about it anymore.
    In short, very satisfied.

    Ring fine, service coolblue bad
    • Ring itself is a nice doorbell
    • 2nd chance product not working
    • Bad service from coolblue
    • Problem not solved
    • Previous buyer is still logged in

    Bought second chance Ring doorbell 2, would have been completely tested. So installed, but when registering it turned out that this doorbell had already been in use, but not deregistered by this previous buyer. As a result, we cannot use the doorbell. Coolblue called, but they offer no solution. The login of the previous buyer cannot be removed and only by returning it (while everything is already hanging..) or paying extra (the doorbell was new €139 last week, now €189, we would have to pay half of it). Very annoying that this is happening.

    Camera for dummies.
    • Easy installation
    • Cloud subscription

    Top product. Easy to install and mount on the wall.
    If you want to save your images, you have to sign up for a subscription of 30 dollars per year.
    We thought that the “chime” had to buy extra but this was not necessary and easy to install on our own bell.
