Should I buy Ring 1 or Ring 2?

I’m going to buy my elderly parents a Ring video doorbell and was trying to determine the difference between the Ring 1 and the Ring 2 for the $100 markup. It looks like they both can be perpetually powered with a solar pack or hard wiring. Why would I buy a Ring 2 instead of a Ring 1 aside from the higher resolution video? Can anyone offer some suggestions?

Hi @JCD ! That is great to hear – I’m sure your parents will enjoy it. How will they primarily be using the device? Mind telling me where the are located (West, East Coast, etc.). I’d love to help point you in the right direction.
