'Setup was a breeze'
Backed by a 4.3-star rating from more than 4,500 customer reviews, this Ring video doorbell has won over Amazon shoppers with its top-notch picture quality and "super easy" installation.
Shoppers have said that this video doorbell provides "peace of mind," with "no more guessing who's at the door."
Another reviewer raved that this doorbell has been "so awesome" for catching delivery people "toss packages at your door."
'Best option if you live in Canada'
In addition to the clear video and simple installation, people were impressed that this doorbell "works well despite frigid Canadian winter weather."
Although this video doorbell has received plenty of rave reviews, some shoppers weren't happy that once installed, it does "bypass the chime" in your home's original doorbell. However, other reviewers such as parents of infants and excitable pet owners considered the silent doorbell a "perfect solution" to avoid disruption.
If you are interested in having both the video app alerts and the door chime, you'll have to purchase the more expensive doorbell model or the Ring chime adapter kit. Luckily, it's also on sale for 30 per cent off right now when you buy the Ring bundle.
