  1. I like my ring however they falsely advertise showing that it opens instantaneously. it does not once the motion detector activates then it takes up to 15-45 seconds to activate the video to view. after its recorded it does not take that long to activate and open. the latest ad i saw today shows a person coming out of the bushies only to see the woman tell him stop and push the alarm, it doesn't work that fast or even close. . however it does work like it shows it's just that is so slow and not instantaneous like the ads show.

  2. Why show video of all the examples you talked about but not the night vision/floodlight video?? Is it because it’s night vision and flood lighting is that bad you only wanted to show the positives?

  3. The most you all got to remember is in order to this function well you need to pay a surprise subscription to the ring or and if not a course your vidio will NOT work , let me repeat that so you think was a typo your video will NOT work because you need to pay a small amount of subscribe and neither of the YouTube video will tell you

  4. You lost me at subscription…. you pay for a unit, why can you not simply connect it to your home network and record to your computer's hard drive. Useless cash grab.

  5. Concern is that when the kids play out in the summer months am I going yo get a notification everytime they enter the zone I have set up? Or can we auto set it between certain hours to enable the zone? Don't really fancy having to enable and disable everytime I leave the house?.. Surely there must be a work around for this?

  6. If the camera loses wifi, it does not even try to store and upload your video….poor design…..in this day and age of cheap memory, the camera should at least record the video locally and try to upload to the cloud when it can. Basic stuff RING…..

  7. Here's the real review: it will not accept 5ghz frequency and there is no buffering therefore the final video is NOT 1080 and never will be. Technically the camera is capable of that, but is slowed down by the 2.4ghz. You cannot see facial features or license plates and with no buffering the worst result is that there will be 1-3 second gaps in the video. Just hope the burglar doesn't show his face to the camera during one of the gaps. Every Ring Floodlight camera does it, especially if you have ANYTHING else on the wifi – the video guy here just didn't let his play long enough – and yes i used an extender and yes i have top of the line internet and wifi in my home. Also the lights on mine stayed on all the time and I could not get that to be any different. Then finally, the $3 a month was the final nail and i returned the product. Ring does a huge fail by not making these 5ghz like their doorbell models and all of the non-paid tech guys agree.

  8. Its almost impossible to reach ring on their 800 #, I think they make the lights with a very low wi fi receiving so u need to buy the extender, as i have 3 at different locations all within 30 feet of wi fi and needed extender for all, other than that a great security device

  9. I installed this and it only records and is active when the light switch is in the on posoition. When i turn my lights off the camera doesnt work. Wish i would have known tha before i would have just bougtht the camera and powered that sepearately.

  10. Without an annual fee, you can’t watch any videos, just watch live,… even the canary gives you 24 hours of free video without a monthly or annual fee. That’s crap

  11. Electricians charge thousands of dollars. They don't install or work for free. And, that two by four, electrical junction box, and orange extension cord didn't just magically appear when you received that camera drop kicked by a UPS driver onto your front porch, and even then, how many people want two by fours with exposed junction boxes, and extension cords tacked to the outsides of their homes? Ring has a doorbell installer they mention (actually a subcontractor), and they can attach your Ring doorbell camera, or flood light camera/s (you will need more than just one, unless your burglars are blind and can't see the exposed walls, fences, gates, and windows with no cameras) to a wall no higher than nine feet, and it won't work unless you pay an electrician to make it work and have it actually wired in permanently, so it cannot just be unplugged by anybody passing by, and not just have an electrical outlet exposed to the elements that also costs big bucks to have installed by a licensed (VERY important), and VERY expensive electrician.
