Ring Upgrades Entry Level Video Doorbell

While the Ring Video Doorbell 2 was the original Ring successor, and since replaced by the Ring Video Doorbell 3 line, a refreshed entry-level model has just broken cover at $100. What’s new you ask?

Regarding main differences, the new Video Doorbell has 1080p HD video (vs 720p HD), an additional “near” motion zone that provides motion detection in areas only 5’-15’ in front of your home, and a revamped mounting setup that simplifies installation and removal for battery charging. The new Video Doorbell also has improved audio quality and crisper night vision.

Pre-orders start today, with delivery expected the first week of June.

  • It's a weird split really... I think most would have most needs met by this new one. The 3 gives you the dual band and easier battery removal for recharge, if doing that vs hardwire. If I were shopping today, I'd probably get this one - but I've hardwired at this home and the prior.

  • I don't have wiring to my doorbell, which is a point in favor of easier recharging of the 3, I guess.

    Also, whatever comment tool you're using isn't successfully notifying me of followup comments as requested! Could something be borked?
