We’ve mentioned the Ring Smart Doorbell before in previous lists. We like that it integrates with your smartphone with the free Ring app and you can get instant alerts whenever anyone presses your doorbell or triggers a motion sensor. But what are the differences between the Ring 2 vs Ring Pro? Let’s look at the differences so you can decide which tech is best for your needs.

Ring 2 vs Ring Pro: Which Smart Doorbell Is Right For You?

Ring 2 Smart Doorbell

The Ring Video Doorbell 2 (recommended retail price, £179) you can answer the door from anywhere. Get an instant alert to your smart device when anyone presses the doorbell or triggers the built-in motion sensor. With two-way voice interaction you can see, hear and speak to your visitor by using the Ring app on your smart device, while noise cancellation technology improves the quality of the audio signal. The Video Doorbell 2 emits an audible alert outside the home. It can be wired to trigger your existing doorbell, or linked over Wi-Fi to the Ring Chime or Ring Chime Pro (sold separately) to sound an alert within the home.

Features:

– Video camera has a 160-degree field of view and records in crystal clear 1080p Full HD resolution
– Weather-resistant, operating between -20° and +48° C, to work rain or shine
– Infrared night vision ensures operability day and night
– In-built motion sensors are customisable

An iOS (version 8.1 or newer), Android (version 4.1 or newer), or Windows 10 device with the Ring app installed

Ring Pro Smart Doorbell

The Ring Pro Smart Doorbell (recommended retail price, £229) includes all the bells and whistles of the Ring 2, plus some! The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is Ring‘s most advanced doorbell and includes an additional Ring Chime which can be plugged in anywhere around the home to receive an audible alert whenever anyone presses the doorbell.

– Ultra slim design with four interchangeable faceplates
– Video camera has a 160-degree field of view and records in crystal clear 1080p Full HD resolution
– Video on demand with Live View
– Weather-resistant, operating between -21° and +48° C, to work rain or shine

– Motion zones are customisable to focus on specific areas
– Powered by connection to your existing doorbell wiring

The primary differences between the technology are that the Ring Pro comes with an additional Ring Chime that you can plug in anywhere around your home, installation logistics, and the style of the doorbell (size and interchangeable faceplates come with the Pro). Additionally, the Ring Pro has enhanced motion sensor detection compared to the Ring 2 and it comes with customisable alert zones.
