We are looking at installing a doorbell camera on our house. We were originally going to go buy a Ring, but I have read online that Ring sometimes has issues with Xfinity wifi. We currently have ADT as our monitoring company. They do have a doorbell camera solution. Anyone else ever looked into these two? Any feedback on either doorbell camera?

    I just had an estimate for an 8 camera system for our property. Price was about 1200 and included re installing my existing alarm with a siren I don’t want monitoring we can get 1080 p night and day pictures for that. Our property backs up to a cliff with a water facility that you can’t see at base Anyone coming in can’t come from that direction.

    I’ve had xfinity and the ring going for over a year now with no problems so far. My gateway is maybe 25-30 feet away without any additional walls in the way.

    I have ring and xfinity and zero issues at all. I run the wifi through the Google Home Wifi. Not a single issue.

    Ring works pretty well if you have a good wifi signal. A nice feature is that the device can connect directly into an existing doorbell power supply, so it'll never need to be charged. If you don't have an existing doorbell, they make battery-powered devices that you'll need to recharge every couple weeks.....in that case, recommend getting a second battery so you always have one fully charged.

    I've got a Ring... it works well and install was a breeze... just used my existing doorbell power supply... I don't have the strongest WiFi connection, but it still works flawlessly

    I just got a Ring Pro. I stalled forever trying to decide which ecosystem to go with, Ring/Alexa/Amazon, Nest/Google, Arlo, etc.
    I'm not fully sold on the Ring system but so far the doorbell is working well connected to my 5ghz on xfiniti internet (own my modem/router).

    I have a Ring Pro Doorbell, 2 Spotlight Cams, and 2 Stick up cams, along with the full Ring Security System. I have never had an issue with Ring, and at $100 a year its as cheap as it gets for monitored service!

    I use Ring products. $100 a year for unlimited storage and security monitoring. You can't beat that price.

    Ring stick up cams, flood light cams, security system and doorbell cam.
