Ring Video Doorbell with HD Video Black Friday Deals 2021
Today I will be doing an unboxing and setup of the ring video doorbell now this is the original version of the ring video doorbell it is not the ring to wear the ring Pro or the ring elite this is just their basic version the ring too has 1080p this only has 720p but it’s was significantly cheaper at the time that I purchased this so other than that it pretty much does the same thing what it’s going to do is it’s going to detect motion when the camera sees somebody
it’s going to send you a notification of that motion and then you’ll also get a nun notification when somebody presses the doorbell this will allow you to hook up directly to your existing doorbell wiring it doesn’t require any additional wiring so that’s really a nice feature it also would allow you to run on a battery just on the internal battery that’s in it which I don’t recommend cuz that’s just kind of a pain I mean if you have no other option I guess that would work but just hooking up to your regular doorbell is really all you need to do so let’s go ahead and open this and see what we got so here is what’s inside the package we have pretty much everything you’re gonna need except a drill then you can give you a drill bit here to drill holes to mount the mount to the wall they give you a level so put a level here I can get it out of there a little level let me ensure your Amanat level II with a screwdriver handle with this little screwdriver can be handy in the future even as all the mounting hardware screws all that and then hears the doorbell itself so it’s a decent size I mean it’s not incredibly large but at the same time it’s not as tiny as a standard doorbell of course as you can see the cameras right here I’m guessing this is maybe an area where there’s a motion sensor or something I don’t even know for sure or not maybe it’s just trim and this is the doorbell button what’s nice about this is it allows two-way communication as soon as somebody rings your doorbell you it’ll notify you in the app and you’ll be able to communicate with them whether you’re home or whether you’re a thousand miles away so here’s just the basic instructions we’re gonna go through here’s the mom this is the mounting plate at months to the wall and here’s an additional excuse me say here’s an additional USB cable to charge it standalone if you need to take it off to charge it so let’s get out to the door and get this installed okay so before we go outside to physically install this doorbell we’re going to run the installation on the app to get it communicating first so you have to download the ring app that’s the officially supported out I’m gonna tap on that and I had already created an account that’s gonna make you create an account which I had already done that so now the next step is to just click setup device so once I click on that it’s gonna ask me which device am i setting up in this case I’m setting up a ring video doorbell and then they want you to press and release the orange button on the back of the ring doorbell so I got the doorbell here I’m gonna press the orange button turn it around and the little circle starts flashing and there starts swirling I guess which I did so I’m gonna then click the continue button let’s see what happens means it’s connecting to the phone and the ring app is now talking to your ring doorbell which network and use this network and you know your password could continue basically you’re basically telling it what network to connect this ring doorbell to which was my home network now says the ring doorbell is now connected to my network and the next screen comes up it says congratulations setup is complete now the ring is flashing on the doorbell it could continue on the app if you would like the grant friends or family access to it shared users will have access to events captured by your doorbell I don’t want to do that so I’m just gonna click continue and ready to install now they’re gonna it could actually show you a video on how to install it which we’re going to skip and that’s it so it’s currently installed so what we’re gonna do next is go and install this out in the front at the front door okay now before we head out we have the app setup and what we’re gonna do I peel the stickers that we’re off of here there were some warning stickers peel the stickers off and we’re gonna install this little level on here and that is just for the mounting of this plate to make sure we get this plate mine’s right once this is mounted we can must take the level off before you install the doorbell another thing is you must be sure that you are connecting the doorbell this ring doorbell to a source of eight to twenty four volts AC if it’s anything other than that it will not function properly and you will probably damage it so in that most normal rate regular doorbells are in that range so but it is something to be aware of and one other thing is if you have special kind of doorbell already that has like a melodic sound rather than just a rape plain old ding you are gonna need to install this diode across the the the connections and it explains that here in the instructions so but I don’t have one like that so I will not be using the diode so I’m just gonna simply be connecting the red and white wires okay so here is my existing doorbell and I’m just gonna use a screwdriver to remove the existing one sorry if I’m blocking the view a little bit so here it’s my existing doorbell and I don’t know what the green wire is for but it wasn’t used before and it won’t be used again so I’ll just have to undisclosed screws and then connect my mounting the mounting portion of the the new video doorbell and mount that to the wall one additional thing as I mentioned earlier before hooking it up I want to validate that I’m between the eight and 24 volts AC that is required so I sent my multimeter to AC volts I measure it and it’s showing 18 volts so I’ll be okay hooking this up I would suggest that you do the same even though most doorbells are gonna be within that range just to be on the safe side so now that the mounting plate is installed I’m gonna go ahead and clip on the doorbell and basically just go on here and it kind of slides down a little bit and then your little screwdriver around screw it in from the bottom just to hold it onto the bracket and if you are not connecting up to existing doorbell wiring this is what you would have to undo every six months or so to take it in and charge the battery so you just have to undo those two screws on the bottom take it off bring it in the house and charge it then come and clip it back on so I guess it’s not that big a deal but if you have the wiring there in place there’s really no reason not to use it okay now that it’s installed let’s go ahead and give it a try so I’m gonna go ahead and the doors open a little bit so we can hear the doorbell inside the house I’m gonna go ahead and push the button I heard the thing inside its dinging out here my phone just give me a notification saying somebody’s at my front door so everything seems to be operational so let’s go back inside and I will show you more about the different settings in there okay we can quickly go through a few of the different settings on the doorbell so back in the app you come into the app you click on front door it shows you the battery status it’s charging or what level it’s at if you not connected to a power source if you have ring alerts and or motion alerts set up so you can have just motion alerts if you want just ring alerts or both you can also see your event history device health and other types of settings let’s first turn on motion alerts because that’s interesting to me so motion alerts are enabled and let’s go to motion settings this is where we can set up motion zones so basically if you don’t want to get false alarms do this in a area that you’re not looking at you can deselect certain areas so I’m just gonna leave it like this looking straight ahead and this will go zone down here and just see how that works out for me there’s also most in schedule where you can schedule when to disable the motion alerts if you don’t want to know at a certain time of day and smart alerts let’s see what smart alerts talks about ah yeah basically you can it sets up the sensitivity of how frequently it gives you know where if it detects motion the text two instances of motion in a short period of time it will not notify you both times or multiple times so that’ll be something that would be interesting to adjust also possibly now let’s go here what’s the light in the live view settings enable live view we can access that any
time I think we’re gonna just leave that off right now this will drain the battery more quickly if you’re on battery power I am NOT so let’s actually just turn that on and I think I’m going to turn that on because I’m not using a battery so I’m connected to power so just have a set on a faster connection okay and what else the vice hell what the status poor mean so I’m not too sure about that and sound good I’m thinking it’s because the battery is not charged all the way and it thinks I should be which it will be after it’s been hooked up for a little while shared users that’s where you can let others see your video which I’m not interested in length chimes is if you haven’t a time extension like say in the basement or in a different part of your house so you can hear in the bedroom or something so you can hear such a physical chime rather than just just hearing the existing doorbell that you have plus the notification on your phone so that’s what that would be for so yeah let’s it told me that I need to go out and push the the doorbell button one so I’m going to do that and come back and see what that live view setting does so I discovered what live view was and it’s just that it’s live view so if you at any given time you want to just see what is going on in your camera you can click on the live view in the app and I’ll show you a live view of what’s going on at your front door and you just click on the red hang up button and it hangs it up so that’s pretty much it for this video doorbell I think it’s maybe a pretty neat thing to have pretty handy especially if you’re downstairs or if you’re somewhere and you just don’t you know you know you’re not able to get up easily and quickly to go see who’s at the door so I mean pretty handy it’s gonna be nice to know who’s coming to your door when you’re not home it’s gonna be nice to know what if the package is delivered or the packages stolen that was delivered I mean it’s gonna be nice to have this record of this anyway.
