What reviewers say:

"Living in an apartment building and having packages stolen is frustrating. After I installed this, I do not have to worry too much about my packages because it hooks up to my Echo Show. I can see who is at the door and keep a much better eye on my deliveries and packages," said one of 146,000+ five-star fans. "The best thing is I can talk to people outside without having to open the door. Visitors can even record messages for you through the Ring Protect subscription. It's a good investment for safety and protection if you are a single woman living alone."

According to one customer, "I was a bit worried about the motion detection on my doorbell because my other Wi-Fi cameras have trigger alerts for every slight movement in view, which leads to a lot of frustrating alerts and false alarms. The Ring smart motion detection is spot-on when detecting human or partial human movement, and accurately ignores unwanted movements like swaying trees or passing cars. I also found this doorbell to be easy to set up and install, and the Alexa skill is effortless. Great doorbell!"

"This unit was a snap to set up," another confirmed. "I can see what’s up when I’m not home on my smart phone."

"This is a great front doorbell/chime with the app. It’s very helpful to see who’s at the door. The only downside is you have to remove the whole camera to charge the battery, leaving you with no camera for a few hours unless you wire it to power. Other models have a removable battery that you can remove and charge. If you have a second battery to replace it with while charging, all the better," one shopper commented.

Keep an eye on all your visitors — and your deliveries.
