I have a Ring doorbell and my SSI number is 83, which is totally rubbish.
I have the Ring WiFi extender, which to be honest, really makes no difference. So the result is a delay in me getting notified that someone is at the door and it’s then too late for anything !!
I do have reasonably fast WiFi around all my home, so that’s not the issue.
If I look at the Ring help section, it mentions walls, instructions other electrical items, which in my opinion is just a excuse they use because the Ring doorbells just aren’t up to scratch. Why does anyone develop a wireless doorbell and then say that obstructions such as walls will effect the coverage.
I have tried relocating the Ring WiFi extender all over the house and it makes no difference at all . Between the doorbell and my home router, there is one plasterboard wall, and then the outside wall which has plasterboard on the inside and one layer of bricks on the outside. If this is a problem, houses with solid brick walls must find this product useless.
When I bring the doorbell into the house to charge the battery which is in the same room as my router the SSI goes down to mid 40s.
Any SENSIBLE ideas or suggestions before I look at another more reliable brand. I’m not really interested in someone quoting what’s in the Ring help section because, yes, I do have walls and other electrical items in my house and using WiFi !!!
