Video Doorbells (Nest, Ring etc.)
« on: June 06, 2018, 11:30:09 AM »
I use the Nest Hello, and there is an option to schedule the camera on/off, which is cool for Shabbos, it works automatically, then you can turn schedule on and off when you are away for Shabbos

Looking into these now, the reviews online are so varied it's almost worthless.

I don't have a wired bell so the nest is not even an option for me, can anyone give an honest opinion about the ring?

How long does the battery last? What do you with it for Shabbos? Do you pay for the cloud recording?

TIA





If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I would highly recommend the Nest Hello over the ring.
You cannot compare the quality and features.

Ring also has a schedule but the motion still shows up on the log.

If you donít already have a wired traditional doorbell then Nest is not an option, unless you want to spend $500+ having a low-voltage technician set it up.

Yup I originally bought Ring Pro but didn't work due to low voltage so I returned and got Ring 2 instead. Works great, but the motion issue more annoying than those who have the wired version and can just turn off the power source externally.

No. The camera turns off completely if you set the schedule.
