Its OK, with Negatives
October 11, 2018
Works as advertised, but with negatives. When I get an alert on my phone that someone is ringing my doorbell, it takes far too long for the Ring app open, connect to the Ring doorbell through my home's wifi, and begin transmitting imagery. In most cases the person ringing my Ring has already left. Not sure if this is a correctable problem. I am very disappointed, as this was the primary reason I bought it.
I elected not to pay the $30/yr fee to record video of people at my front door. Its not much money, but the Ring is already expensive and recording was not part of my core interest in purchasing this in the first place. Competitors offer free (limited) recording, too.
