My next question may sound silly - I hope so - but I’m kind of new at this Ring thing.
Last week I purchased a Ring Doorbell Pro 2. Installing it I noticed it wouldn’t work on my 5GHz WiFi network. After searching for a while I found the solution: Ring works on 5GHz channels above 100. So said, so done. It works.
Proud of this accomplishment I purchased a Spotlight Cam Wired for my backyard. What I didn’t notice at the purchase was that this cam only works on 2.4 GHz. It doesn’t pair with my 5GHz network. How can I make the Spotlight Cam work on my network?
I do have a dual band router 2.4/5GHz, but I don’t like the idea of downgrading my WiFi network to 2.4GHz to make everything work. I call it downgrading because of the heavy competition of networks on 2.4 GHz: all the channels are heavily occupied with other networks. 5Ghz is fairly free of competition.
Is the Chime Pro 2 - I was thinking of purchasing a chime, anyway - a solution? I’ve seen several messages and articles stating it’s a dual band device which also extends the WiFi-signal. Am I naive to think that I can create a network with two WiFi frequencies?
Anyone with a wise advise?
