u/_Jedidicktricks · 13 pointsr/LetsNotMeet Ring Doorbell, i pay a couple bucks a month to have all videos saved.

u/Miett · 9 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

We recently got this doorbell / camera combo for under $200, and it can run on batteries and set up temporarily in a rental rather than being wired in like others.

It's wireless, so you can "answer" the door and talk to visitors via your cell phone if you're not home. You can also set it up to ping you when there's even movement outside your door, and you can startle people who didn't ring the bell, but are snooping around outside your door by talking to them too. The potential MIL fun to be had is endless.

Ah thanks. This product?

It's not even discrete. I mean, it looks obvious there's a lens. I'm shocked this person didn't even realize there's a camera staring her in the face.

u/sveach · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Do you have any interest in going a different route, such as an electronic camera doorbell? My parents have one, and it shows up on your phone when the doorbell rings. Something like this:

You could keep your big hulking wood door, which would be my preference! Yes, someone could break your glass patio door. That doesn't mean you should abandon all other areas of security. :)

u/anon_e_mous9669 · 3 pointsr/raisedbynarcissists

The one I've heard good things about is [Ring] ( which isn't the cheapest option, but seems pretty simple and easy to set up with your home wifi.

Stay on alert, you never know what they're going to decide is the correct response to not getting Nsupply. . .

A few suggestions:

u/thezlog · 2 pointsr/Portland

Well, you wouldn't mount a easily-stolen Nest cam lower down, but you can do an anti-vandal dome camera just above your door, or even something like this:

There are a few versions of the those doorbell cameras, I'm not sure if all the bugs have been worked out yet. The key is placement above all else. If you can't see their face it's like adding insult to injury.

u/iammartyr · 2 pointsr/daddit

Here and here.

Use it wired or wirelessly. I use it wirelessly and it just needs charged every 3-5 months depending on the outside temp.

u/curepure · 2 pointsr/funny

Plot twist, she wants [this ring](Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell in Satin Nickel

u/Hope2BeAwesome · 2 pointsr/LetsNotMeet

The Ring Doorbell is a video system that lets you see and communicate with people at your door (even if you're not home). It is activated by motion censor, so you would know even if he comes around while you are out of the house.

P.S. Has anything new happened in the weeks since you originally posted this?

u/ragingcomputer · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

By the time you buy a mimolite ($77.99 USD) and a relay ($12.47 USD), you're almost at the price ($90.46 USD) of an entry level ring doorbell ($99.99 USD). Add in wire and wire nuts or a terminal strip you'd be better off buying a ring.

I think i read the cheapo ring can't disable the mechanical chime, so you'd have to disconnect the existing chime and put a resistor in it's place, then rely on the push notifications from the ring.


If you want to get janky, jam some cardboard between the rod and the the plate that rings, and stick a door sensor to the doorbell and use smartthings to notify you in some sort of way when the sensor closes. If it doesn't pick up the magnetic field you may need to get a reed switch. Similar to this


TL;DR- nothing is cheap and everything sucks

u/Evanspy · 2 pointsr/smarthome

TL;DR Wink Hub 2, Cheap Z-Wave Lock, Ring. Alexa with screen for added functionality. Check links below.

I recommend a wink hub 2 and a cheap $150 z-wave doorlock with a ring. As a bonus, if you don't already have one you can get a Alexa show (what I have) or spot to view the video feed from the doorbell and lock the door (unlocking functionality is not available so people cant tell through the door). Links Below.

Here's stuff I use:

u/noonitis · 2 pointsr/ringdoorbell

If you google "ring doorbell fps" you'll find majority of different smart home blogs talking about 30fps. And then you have this press release mentioning it and the Ring's Amazon listing.

Though it looks like it's just the original Ring is 30fps, whereas the Ring 2 and Pro are 15. My bad.

I'm just wondering then why people with the original Ring on this thread are still reporting 15fps? So confusing. Sorry, just trying to figure things out before buying one.

u/GotMyOrangeCrush · 2 pointsr/homedefense

Am a Hikvsion fan, personally.

u/Madcotto · 1 pointr/ringdoorbell

as the topic, they go out of their way to remove all bad comments and then flood any complaints with glowing responses like yours (funny that) The units are badly designed and badly coded and their support is just copy paste responses as they Know they cannot fix the issues that people have.

Edit: as you mention Amazon quick look and oh

So I guess what are you saying is all these people are idiots? and even if that's the case it's a bloody doorbell it should by design be idiot proof you don't need a PhD to install a doorbell.

u/BernoulliMagic · 1 pointr/homeautomation

Would have been a deal at 25% off perhaps. The video quality just doesn't seem to be quite on par with the Ring video doorbell. Is the Skybell not able to record yet?

At the same price I feel much happier with the Ring:

u/ShitBBThrowaway · 1 pointr/homedefense

Would you recommend this one ?

u/daniel_ross · 1 pointr/homedefense


If you want a primer on current security camera technology, my guide to IP cameras may help. As you will find though, I am not one who recommends storing everything on the cloud.

For a doorbell, if you want a ready to use device, consider the Ring Doorbell. If you are happy to go the DIY home automation route, you can use a standard bell linked to a home automation gateway device which can then pretty much trigger any event/action you need. Eg. Play a sound through your home theatre or SONOS, take a picture from the security camera and email to your phone, send a push notification to your phone, automatically play a recorded greeting etc. An example of a gateway device is the Vera Plus.

In fact this is going to be my next project!
