Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 vs Doorbell Pro vs Doorbell 3 Plus Compared – Ring’s new wired smart doorbell is their best yet
The smart video doorbell market has been getting increasingly competitive in the past year. Ring may dominate the market, but we have seen impressive launches from Arlo and Eufy that are just as good if not better than some of the Ring products (depending on your requirements).
Ring has not been resting on their laurels, though. Over the past year, they have refreshed the majority of their product lineup. In particular, the two new Doorbell 3 models offered features their competitors lacked, such as 5Ghz WiFi and pre-roll footage.
More recently, they launched the new Ring Wired Doorbell, their smallest and cheapest doorbell yet, undercutting the competing brands.
Today, they launch the refreshed Pro model with the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2. This claims to be the most advanced wired video doorbell yet and looks to be a fantastic option if you have access to wiring for your doorbell.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 Features
Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2’s new advanced features give homeowners more control and context about what is happening at their front door, making it the perfect device for those looking to upgrade their current doorbell, as well as those looking for a premium wired home security device. Key features include:
3D Motion Detection uses radar to better detect objects and homeowners can customise which areas of their property they want to monitor by selecting distance thresholds. The radar sensor determines when an object crosses the distance threshold by measuring its specific distance from the camera. The camera is activated once that threshold is crossed, and sends homeowners a motion alert.
Bird’s Eye View provides an aerial map view of the homeowner’s property, showing where a motion event starts to give you historical context to the nature of the event. Unique to Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, 3D Motion Detection is the newest way for homeowners to get more control of the motion alerts they receive.
1536p HD video with Colour Night Vision
Two-way audio with noise cancellation and an array microphone to limit sound distortion
It also comes with a free 30-day trial of Ring Protect so you can explore additional features such as Advanced Pre-Roll, People Only Mode, and Rich Notifications
Colour Night Vision
Colour night vision , in my opinion, is one of the best advancements in surveillance in recent years (AI object detection is amazing too). It has been used on a growing number of cameras following the introduction of Sony Starvis sensors. Reolink introduced it on some of their Argus cameras, and Hikvision has pioneered low light and colour night recording with their DarkSense technology.
I think Ring will be the first company to integrate this technology on a doorbell, and the performance difference should be huge.
