We bought a couple rings (2 doorbells and 2 cameras) for christmas and they didnt work well, so we bought a couple new samsung phones and it didnt work right on that. We installed rapid ring and it made it worse. We bought an hd 8 fire tablet thinking the ring app might work better on an amazon product and we cant get the skill added on to alexa and the app is still super buggy and slow.
I’ve heard so many good things about ring and we really need the monitoring…what do I need to buy to get this system to work as promised? Our internet connection has tested fine everytime I call customer care.
The gal at amazon suggested I buy a echo show to try in case it works but she wasn’t sure if they do or not…does anyone know if this is what I need to make it work a bit? We have reasonable expectations…if we could get it to work for 50-75% of the time we would be content.
What is the best thing to use for viewing/communicating with the ring app and cameras? What other devices should I stay away from?
Or am I being unreasonable and this is just how it works? My main issue is that it takes a couple minutes to load live view when it will and it misses about half the motion events (it’s on the most sensitive setting). Do ring doorbells only work occassionally?
