Using Ring 2 - seems great. Will be investigating the camera/ motion only options for another property. What I find useful is that you get a video to all your devices of motion at the door irrespective of whether or not the doorbell is pushed but you only need to delete the history from one device and it deletes from all. It works for us because we are quite a distance from the road and so the motion set up prevents too much non relevant activity from being picked up. I am seeing just how lazy my wife is and how many bags she comes back with after shopping.
Yes. If you really want to play at being a spy, put one indoors  ;D

I also track her during the day via the debit card usage.

And, as a bonus, footage from ours was used as part of a criminal conviction.

Without it, the 50-0 never would have identified and arrested the person who went through our cars one night - probably the same person who went through the neighbours cars two years later after he got out, but hey.. I don't know if the second person was caught, but the neighbours had footage of him on their Ring floodlight camera.

I have installed these twice now in two homes and they are brilliant.

Always work, with only the bell push itself requiring a battery once a year at most. :y

My M-I-L's new house has a Lloytron one which has umpteen different (very irritating) tunes in it.

Even better, she has no idea how to change the tune, so we set it to a new one of our choice whenever we visit. ;D

Definitiely don't get one of them. ::)

Mrs TB's folks uses the wireless ones, they never seem to last long, irrespective if he buys from local DIY superstores or from the likes of Amazon.

Mrs TB's bro has a Ring, but I know it wouldn't work for us, as we've never got the phones with us, plus even if I did, the annoyance factor would cause something to get broken.

Also, when I see a Ring, I think its a rich techno geek.  Well worth breaking into if they don't actually answer the door.

So you can buy a button that screws on the door, that calls your phone to let you know someone is there? Or that connects to a wifi thingy to do the same job? Really???


What's wrong with a heavy knocker on the door?

I've got two of these, as I was pi55ed off with the batteries failing and not realising it, and on these the bell-push doesn't need a battery. The action of pressing it generates a wireless signal to the plugged in chime unit(s), with about 50 chimes to choose from, which are loud enough for even someone with Shack-ear to hear. I bought the first about 18 months ago for the back door, and was so impressed, bought the second one for the front. :y

Does that knocker record video? Can you hear it when you're in the garage down the bottom of the garden? Can you speak to delivery people when you're at work and ask them to leave the parcel somewhere? Bloody clever knocker, that.

Also, when I see a Ring, I think its a rich techno geek.  Well worth breaking into if they don't actually answer the door.

Given the scrotes around here don't seem to know what one is, I don't think that's a real problem either.

They can look a little uninviting, though:

Couple of red LEDs for the eyes and that'd be perfect to keep the JWs away. :y

If someone in a balaclava knocks on your door don't worry, it'll only be me.  ::)
