Upgrading to Ring Video Doorbell 2

I am super happy with the Ring Video Doorbell. It has proven both practical and efficient when I receive guests or packages or simply want to see what is going on outside. I have even spotted deers passing by in the night.

As they announced the Ring Video Doorbell 2 there were two things that mainly caught my eye.

  1. Full 1080p Video
  2. Quick Release battery.

The version 1 only had 720p and you had to unscrew and remove the entire doorbell to recharge it as the battery was integrated.

Some negative aspects:

The version 2 comes with a mounting bracket so you can use the existing holes, you still have to remove the version 1 plate.

Ring version 1 adapter

The fit with the adapter bracket is not perfect, it is actually really bad since it leaves a large gap at the top of the unit for water to enter. This is because my wood wall is not entirely straight and the version 2 unit has screw holes not on the top to force it onto the plate.

The finish on the version 1 is really good. Looks nice and feels nice. Premium material. The finish on the version 2 is really cheap and made of plastic. Center in the image below you see the version 1 in venetian bronze.

The silver plate looks way to cheap so I have to go with the dark one.

Here is the end result:

Prosjekt Parkeringsplass – Henter graveren

Med min Ring.com video doorbell så får jeg en bevegelsesbeskjed. Når jeg klikker inn så ser jeg at Fredrik Sandbo er i ferd med å hente gravemaskinen.

Arbeid utført så langt.

The Smartest Doorbell

I was listening to a podcast and they did a good ad from Ring.com. I just had to go online and look at it. And what do you know it was all that cool.

TIP: you can not have it charging when you set it up. then it will not work

 

It is a standalone one-way video two-way audio doorbell that lets you answer any ring or motion outside with voice. It also records the motion and rings for you to look at later.

Look at these videos:



 

The doorbell comes in a nice box with all the tools you need.

By mistake I got a US adapter on the CHIME unit

 

You do not have to plug it in to power as the built in battery will last a long time and you can charge it with a standard USB cable.

You do not need to buy extra chimes as one chime unit comes in the box, but here make sure that you specify an international package. I did not know that the orginal box came with a chime unit so I ordered that aswell.
