Ring Battery Doorbell Pro, now more connected than ever [Analysis]

Ring is a firm specialized in domestic home security, that is, without giving up any of the capabilities that an alarm and security service offered by an external company can offer you, it allows you to configure and control all the devices yourself. parameters to create a safe environment in your home. There are many occasions in which We have analyzed Ring products intended for this purpose, and the one we bring you now was not going to be any less.

We analyze the new Ring Battery Doorbell Pro, a very versatile video doorbell, with a built-in battery and advanced security features.

Materials and design, brand of the house

As always with Ring products, the packaging is very compact, limiting the size of the packaging almost to that of the final product. The content is simple and typical for Ring:

  • Five-point screwdriver
  • MicroUSB charging cable
  • Envelope with anchors
  • Notice sticker
  • Lateral and diagonal adjustment chassis
  • Video doorbell

We have the brand's classic two-color design, silver for the lower area with the button panel, black for the sensor area and the camera. By removing the silver cover we access the configuration QR code and of course, the removable battery.

The device is slightly heavy, something that will not be a problem, since it adheres to the wall using screws. It wouldn't make any sense to anchor it with double-sided tape, as it could easily be stolen. As for the dimensions, almost 13 centimeters long, with a thickness that is not exaggerated.

In short, a brand-name product, with manufacturing that feels quality, but above all durable, since it is a product that can be exposed to the elements, as you well know.

Technical characteristics

Despite being a video doorbell, we already know that Ring products have the watchword of ensuring the safety of their users. In this sense, The Battery Video Doorbell Pro has a 3D radar motion detection system that inherits from the standard wired model, which allows you to add to the calculation of the recorded trajectory both distance, speed, angle and perception, thus detecting visitors more accurately and avoiding unnecessary motion alerts.

Thanks to this scanner we can also access a kind of overhead view that tracks motion events, tracking them from a simulated angle. It should also be noted that according to our tests, we have been able to verify that the Ring video doorbell performs especially well in adverse weather conditions, such as the constant rains and storms that have hit Madrid these weeks.

  • The 3D scanner is capable of managing content from 9 meters away.

On a technical level, the video doorbell sensor offers a 1536p HD+ resolution, The result is more than enough definition for everyday use. It also has a packet detection system, a functionality exclusive to the Ring Protect subscription and that will be helpful if you live in the United States of America or any country where leaving the package at your door does not mean placing candy at a school. Another feature limited to the Ring Protect subscription is the Advanced Pre-Roll, That is, it also captures the moments prior to an activity alert, so that we don't miss anything at all.

For standard recording we have a frame of 150º horizontally and 90º vertically, although we can obtain 150º both vertically and horizontally if we wish, a camera in Ultra Wide Angle is quite interesting, interesting and above all, it gives us more content.

Regarding autonomy, according to our calculations, we can lose around 6% of battery if we have 10 daily motion alerts, which would require a charge approximately every two weeks. All of this can improve (or worsen) depending on the level of sensitivity of the alerts and, above all, whether we place the video doorbell in a house or an apartment.

The Ring app is the great companion

The Ring app, free for both iOS and Android, It is the nerve center of control of our Battery Video Doorbell Pro. Through it, we will receive notifications in real time, we will be able to see the live video, as well as interact with whoever we deem relevant, taking into account that the camera has two-way audio, as well as many other functions.

Through this application, we will be able to synchronize the camera with the Amazon Alexa services and carry out the adjustments through our different devices, being one of its main functions the possibility of viewing live content through the Amazon Echo Show. However, its main attraction is Ring Protect Basic, the €3,99/month subscription (although the camera includes a 30-day free trial) that will capture all content from the last 180 days and store it on the server for us to share or download.

This is the main reason that it does not have a microSD card, and one of its high points, since we can subscribe or not depending on our needs, that is, you can pay the €3,99 when you go on vacation, and cancel it when you return if what you want is to consult it only sporadically . Of course, if you want to have more than one device, you must subscribe to the Plus version of the service, which, although it has more functions, costs €10, as we have previously told you in our analysis of the Ring Alarm Kit.

Editor's opinion

Once again we are faced with an excellent Ring product, focused above all on keeping us connected and safe. I recommend, however, purchasing it only if we value the Ring Protect subscription in any of its variants, although it is true that Spain, a country of flats and apartments, is not the ideal place for a product of these characteristics, the reality is that It will delight owners of chalets, townhouses and all types of single-family homes. The price is 229 €, It can be purchased on both Ring.com and Amazon, and is available now.
