With better streaming access and video quality, this is an excellent on the go tool as well.

Features & Technology


The Ring Video Doorbell Pro has a slim profile measuring 4.5 inches by 1.8 inches by 0.8 inches. It looks much more like a traditional doorbell than the previous model. Users also can select from one of four faceplates to help the Ring to match the home’s other colors and tones.

Video Quality

The Pro comes with 1080 HD video. This is a significant improvement over previous models and provides picture-quality images. It also offers infrared night vision. This version also offers live view, which means users can sign into the software on their phone or other device and get a live view of what is happening outside their door.

Motion Sensors

A nice feature that is not found in the previous version of the Ring Doorbell is the customizable motion sensors. Custom motion zones allow users more flexibility for covering the space outside their door. You set up the space you wish to monitor. It comes with 160-degree field of view.

Two-Way Audio

This version comes with two-way audio. This allows users to communicate with those at their doorbell whether or not the press the bell. It also features noise cancellation for improved sound quality.


The Ring pro uses an app to connect users with their doorbell. It is available for Android as well as iOS. The app is easy to use. You can use it on your mobile phone but also on a desktop device.

Ease of Use

The Ring Pro most certainly makes operating a doorbell camera easy to do. Though it does need to be hardwired into place, once in place it is easy to use and controlled completely through the app. Most people will not need professional installation services since existing wiring is generally all that is necessary.  The app is straightforward and simplistic to use. It also allows users to easily navigate between various Ring-related devices.

Customer Service

The Ring Pro comes with a 1-year warranty on the parts and theft protection.

The company’s website has a lot of information and resources on it. Users can tap into customer service on the site for any of Ring’s devices. Additionally, the system comes with easy-to-use instructions. If there is a need for more help, live chat online or over the phone can help get it set up quickly. 24/7 support is available. Ring also offers a premium support service for an additional charge called Ring Assist Plus.


The Ring Video Doorbell Pro costs $249 to purchase. Financing options may be available. There is a 30-day money back guarantee and free shipping on the service available. Overall, the Ring Pro costs a bit more but provides more flexibility, making it worth it.


It is possible to purchase additional equipment for the system. This includes the following:

For many property owners, this is an easy way to have more protection in place at your home no matter what type of risks exist.

    Installed and worked perfect for several weeks. Now it will not do anything. White circle continuously. WiFi router is fine. Cell phone connects to the same network. Called for support, problem still not solved. A few days pass return date. Will Ring replace it?

      Check the Voltage of your transformer. Not the VA number, the V number.
      Must be between 16 and 24 V
      I have read that they may work initially and then stop working.

    Mine has done the same thing. I did a chat with Ring support. They had me bypass my house doorbell. I’m not sure why since it worked just fine before it went offline. They said it may not be getting enough power??
    Anyway, I did what they asked. The ring will not go into set up mode. It’s just a solid white circle all the time. I’m going to try again tomorrow after it has time hours to “charge”(it’s hardwired into the house). The original issue was that it went offline and would not broadcast a network signal for my wifi to pick up. I’m wondering if “R2D2” is the network and if it is, then its asking for a password. Where do I find that?
