Stay connected from a distance
I have the previous version of this doorbell, and I used to love that it allowed me to answer my door from anywhere. But with the current need for social distancing, I now really appreciate that it lets me safely answer the door from home, too. I can see and chat with visitors while we both maintain our recommended six-foot personal bubble of space. I have mine set to alert me when motion is sensed, too, so I know when deliveries arrive or if the neighbor cat comes by to say hello.
Minor and major improvements
In addition to the subtle structural improvements like the redesigned easy-to-remove faceplate and stronger mounting screws, the Ring Video Doorbell 3 offers some upgrades under the hood as well. While the previous model connected to your router on the 2.4GHz band, this model has dual-band compatibility for a more reliable connection. This updated version also has improved motion detection including a "near motion" zone that is designed to reduce false alarms.
If your current doorbell operates at a voltage between 8 and 24 volts AC, you can connect Ring Video Doorbell 3 to the existing wiring. Hardwiring this way keeps Ring's battery charged and allows it to trigger your existing chime when someone rings the bell.
Not replacing an existing doorbell? No problem. The included battery is easily removable and only needs to be charged every 6 to 12 months, depending on usage. If you don't want to lose coverage while your depleted battery is recharging, pick up an extra battery. Without an existing doorbell, you'll also need to keep your phone handy for notifications, or purchase Ring Chime or Chime Pro for alerts while you're at home.
Package includes $25 Crutchfield gift card.
