Another Doorbell

Recommended Posts

Hi.  No, not hello, this doorbell is called Hi.




I'm not sure why anyone would back this when Ring Pro is delivering but I'm just reporting the news!  I watched the video and kept thinking about the profile and taking a hammer to it to knock it off! I'm not a thief, honest.

I guess one way to look at this is competition tends to drive down cost to the consumer.  However, I agree that the shape / design is horrible.


They need to rethink their pricing.  $249 is the backing price (offering a $150 discount)?  Ring Pro sells for $249 today.


It is getting easier every day to purchase a cheap microcontroller with integrated WiFi and GMS radios to develop IoT devices.  Combine this with a camera and the rest is software features.  Does that mean I could build my own?  Maybe, but I don't have the expertise of integrating it with cloud solutions to connect the camera to a Smartphone app.  It does mean that this space could become more crowded if RING is able to demonstrate their is a market.


For me...I will hold on to my money and pass on this one.

I am surprised they have any funding for the reasons you have already mentioned. I will stick with my Vivint doorbell camera.
