What We Like
- Wide field-of-view: With a 160-degree field-of-view, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro has almost zero blind spots on either side of the lens.
- Relatively easy set up for a wired doorbell: Ring has spent years making its video doorbells more accessible, including making them easier to install. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro, although a wired doorbell, only took us about five minutes to install.
- Dual-band: Video doorbells take up a lot of bandwidth when streaming and recording, but the Video Doorbell Pro is dual-band, meaning it can connect to 5 GHz Wi-Fi. Since 5GHz is typically less crowded, not to mention faster, the Video Doorbell Pro won’t put a burden on your Wi-Fi network.
What We Don't Like
- Lack of artificial intelligence: The Ring Video Doorbell Pro can’t tell people and other moving objects apart, which would have been a great feature for a video doorbell.
- Boxy design: Although slimmer than the Ring Video Doorbell models, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro still sports a boxy design that is not as aesthetically pleasing as other doorbell brands.
- No local storage: Ring video doorbells don’t have local storage, so they won’t record unless you sign up for a Ring Protect subscription. The most basic subscription costs $3 per month.
