A couple of weeks ago I was in Seattle visiting my friends from college. I had never been to Seattle before, so they proudly showed me their house. It was a very nice house. But my fascination was reserved not with the rooftop or the (many, many) bedrooms but with this doorbell that they had.
It is a video doorbell: As such, no matter where they are, they can see who is at their doorstep simply by checking the app on their phone. They can see immediately when a package arrives or if an uninvited visitor attempts any funny business on their property. (You can also save the footage of every time someone moves on your doorstep to watch again later). In fact, if someone comes to their door and they aren’t home, they can actually communicate with them right then and there from their remote location. (My first thought: Perfect for telling the UPS guy not to just leave packages on the doorstep for porch pirates).
My second thought? This makes for an incredible Father’s Day gift. There are few things better than the gift of security, which is exactly what the Ring Video Doorbell offers. Perhaps someone over at Ring or Amazon thinks this is an ideal Father’s Day gift as well, because these doorbells are currently available for a discount.
My friends who have this doorbell have no complaints. When I visited them again during the nighttime, they showed me footage of my entrance even in the dark. That’s how good 1080p HD video and infrared LEDs are.
The only complaints about the Ring Video Doorbell Pro seem to be from people who had the original version and felt that the newer features (like a Live View that lets you check in on your doorstep at anytime) were not worth investing in a completely new set-up for $250. They are probably right. But right now the Ring Video Doorbell Pro is on sale, and if you don’t have the original model, then this is absolutely the one you want.
