Interesting selection of views, however I am a little surprised at the "caveat emptor" opinion given today's consumer rights driven environment.
Not to belabor this issue, but .....
I work in IT, so I suspect I may be more tech savvy than the average person.I bought this online after long research into reviews and specifications.
When the product website states "Ring products are easy to set up, and include all the tools needed for installation" I think the average person would assume this is a product made for DIY, not for professional assessment and installation. Indeed it was very easy to set up, with very simple step by step instructions.
Neither the product technical details section nor the FAQ's mention anything about minimum internet connection standards. The only way I found out about the "recommended 2MB upload" is via Google, it was noted in a response to a Ring support request.
I was looking forward to "a versatile wire-free HD security camera that lets you see, hear and speak to anyone on your property from your phone, tablet and PC" and "crisp video around the clock". Suffice to say this has certainly not been my experience.
With NBN reportedly rolled out to 58% of Australian households @ May 18, there is potentially 42% of Australians for which this product is quite possibility not fit for purpose for!
