Recently I bought a Ring 10 piece security system, Ring Doorbell 2 and a Ring Indoor cam. While I like the system for the most part, I have a couple main concerns:
- Security issues. I have read about the various issues associated with Ring and we have experienced a couple of oddities since I installed it. First we had a guy come to our door one night (same day I installed it) claiming he was there to pick up his daughter. He quickly claimed he had the wrong number. Looking back at the video we noticed he had some small item (not his phone) that he pulled out of his pocket after ringing the Ring. I did see him pull into the driveway down the street afterwards.
Second my wife recently lost all her text history on her phone. Just completely disappeared. Needless to say she is freaking out thinking someone hacked somehow through the Ring.
- The lack of glass shatter sensor. We have a couple echo dots but disconnected them over a year ago due to their uselessness and privacy issues.
So I am wondering if we should return and get something else. Budget is around $450. I was also looking at Simplisafe when I was researching. Thanks!
