If you get a lot of packages delivered and want to keep an eye on them, buy the Ring Doorbell 2. If you’re frequently upstairs and don’t hear your current doorbell or prefer to know who’s at the door before answering it, buy the Ring Doorbell 2. If you want to just check in on your front door from the office just to see what’s up, or to see if leaves are collecting on your yard, then buy the Ring Doorbell 2.
It works well and I found it to be super convenient; it’s a gadget I didn’t really think I needed until I installed one.
On the other hand, it’s kind of strange having a camera on the front of my house. I’ve visited folks with older versions of the Ring and didn’t really like the idea that they could see me — harmless as I am — when I rang the doorbell. I felt bad when I had sushi dropped off, knowing that the delivery person knew he was being watched and recorded.
That’s the new age we live in. As we build smart homes that can give us an extra set of eyes when we aren’t there, we’ll need to get used to cameras being everywhere, even on our doorbells.
