Is Ring Doorbell turning out to be the worst buy of my life

I am starting to regret the day I ever heard of “RING” products, and Ring Support.

Spent a small fortune on Cameras and doorbells for both mine and my daughters house.

Currently have the Doorbell 3 that is driving me totally nuts. All setup correctly and I get notifications, the problem is too many notifications.

My daughter just walked out the door, Ring notified me that someone was at my door, I look at my phone and on the ring app, its showing I have 17 Notifications.

Go into the app and there is actually only 1 notification, on the doorbell camera.

I have uninstalled the application, rebooted the phone then installed again, and the problem persists.

I am not happy to call support as their stock answer seems to be uninstall then install again.

I have cleared all notifications,

The Camera has been reset
Application reset
Using Samsung S21 Ultra - All updates are current.
Nothing quirky in my setup, in fact its more less as it is installed.
I have acknowledge all the “New Feature” notifications, so its not them.

No matter what I do, 1 physical notification will generate loads of notifications on the phone.

The Ring product just seems to be totally unreliable and I am losing faith in it. As its all “months” old, I am inclined to send it all back for a refund on the basis that its not “fit for purpose”.

I don’t have any other apps that will generate numerous notification counts like the Ring App does, just totally mad.

How many out there are suffering the same fate?

I do not have this issue but I do have the notifications way after someone has come to the door or if they run up there is NO notification or video at all. I also agree that the application is very unstable and regret my purchase of this system. No updates to firmware of software for some time now.
