What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Wi-Fi reliant: Only connects to your phone through Wi-Fi
  • Lacks artificial intelligence:Does not integrate with Google Assistant, IFTTT, or Stringify
  • Discontinued: The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is no longer being offered by Ring. Rather, it was replaced by the Ring Video Doorbell 3 and 4.

Bottom Line

We love options, which is why we're so pleased with the Ring Video Doorbell 2, the company's second iteration of the doorbell camera. It can either be hardwired to an existing doorbell setup or battery-operated, making it a great option for any kind of home.
