The Ring doorbell makes a wonderful addition to my home after the subscription trail ran out it just sits there informing me with wonderful chimes that someone might have already stolen mail or packages from my doorstep. Fell much safer now knowing my home is under chime waring (alerts) after someone may have already broken in. Sure I’d pay for the “REQUIRED” subscription with all my other bills increasing and salary standing still. But since I run short at EOM on income I’m just happy with an expensive wind chime doorbell waring me after the fact. Enjoy watching it sit there doing absolutely nothing. It’s about as useless as expensive coffin\casket with Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth connections. It might be a nice device to have if you have extra money around doing nothing. If you like wind chimes it makes a perfect gift.
