Ring is a popular security choice, and for good reason. You’ll get affordable security solutions, monitoring, DIY setup, and contract-free services. Plus, you’re bound to get a few smart features with any Ring device.
However, some homeowners need a wifi range extender to make the most of their equipment features. The Ring Chime Pro is designed to solve that problem by extending your home’s wifi to have a stronger connection for your smart home and security equipment. But does it check all the boxes for Ring customers?
About the Ring Chime Pro
The Ring Chime Pro is more than a range extender. It sends instant notifications from your Ring doorbell or camera. You can adjust the volume and choose between several in-home classic and seasonal doorbell alert tones. We like that it’s easy to install by plugging into your wall outlet, and it comes with a built-in night light. And at $50, it costs less than most other home security equipment. Here are a few pros and cons to consider:
- Built-in wifi range extender, built-in nightlight, and indoor chime
- Easy to set-up
- 1-year warranty
- Doesn’t work with power outages
- Only works with Ring cameras and doorbells
- Separate range extender required for other Ring security equipment
Does the Ring Chime Pro work with all Ring devices?
No, that’s one of the shortcomings of the Chime Pro: It only works with Ring doorbells and cameras. If you’re looking for a wifi range extender to cover your Ring security system, you’ll want to look into Ring’s Alarm Range Extender. But the Chime Pro is perfect if you only need to extend the range for your Ring cameras.
What’s the difference between the Ring Chime and Ring Chime Pro?
The big difference between the two is that the Ring Chime will only let you hear doorbell chimes from inside the home. The Ring Chime Pro does that and more, with an indoor chime, wifi range extender, and built-in nightlight. Both chimes still let you snooze alerts, choose from multiple chime tones, and are easy to install.
The Chime costs $30, while the Pro is $50. So, if you have strong wifi and no connection issues, the Ring Chime may be a good choice for less money.
Our take on the Ring Chime Pro
The Ring Chime Pro is the perfect smart camera addition to anyone who has spotty wifi or who’s looking for more out of their in-home doorbell alert system. It’s not a must-have unless you have Ring surveillance and wifi problems. But if you do, the Ring Chime Pro is a great addition that gives you more than other wifi extenders on the market. You can add multiple throughout the house to give you the best wifi connection for your Ring cameras, a night light, and chimes that you can’t miss if someone’s at your door.
