The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2  - the rumored successor to Ring's top-of-the-range Video Doorbell Pro - has been made available to pre-order today, February 24. The video doorbell will go on sale on March 31 in the US and the UK, and on April 1 in Australia, priced at $249.99 / £219 / AU$399.99.

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 not only records in a higher resolution than the existing Ring Video Doorbell Pro, it also offers a ‘head-to-toe’ view so you can see the full length of anyone on the doorstep, just like the Arlo Video Doorbell. 

It brings new features such as 3D Motion and Bird’s Eye View that use a radar to give a better understanding of what triggered a motion alert. The colorized night vision feature found on the original Ring Video Doorbell Pro that uses ambient light in the camera’s field of view to apply a simulated color to the image and provide more detailed footage, can also be found on the new Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2. 

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? A higher resolution version of Ring's top-of-the-range wired video doorbell
  • How much will it cost?  $249.99 / £219 / AU$399.99 
  • When will it be out?  It goes on sale on March 31 in the US and UK, and April 1 in Australia 

 Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 price 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 will set you back $249.99 / £219 / AU$399.99, which is the same price the Ring Video Doorbell Pro was when it launched. 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro has often been discounted during special events such as Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday, so it's possible (though not guaranteed) the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 may be reduced at some point.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 release date 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro will go on sale on March 31 in the US and the UK, and on April 1 in Australia. It is available to pre-order now.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 design 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 looks very similar to the current model, with an interchangeable faceplate that covers the four edges of the doorbell rather than just the bottom half as on the other Ring Video Doorbells. 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro comes with four different colored faceplates in the box; silver, grey, black and cream. However, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 will come with  one silver faceplate in the box. Once you've set up the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, Ring will email a code for a second free faceplate. There are 16 colors to choose from including green, red and purple. 

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is a similar size to the Ring Video Doorbell Pro, measuring just 1.9in (4.9cm) wide compared to the Video Doorbell 3 Plus which is 2.4in (6.2cm) wide. 

Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 features

As expected following an accidental leak by Best Buy Canada, the main upgrade on the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is to the resolution; the Video Doorbell Pro currently records FullHD (1080p) video, but the specs for the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 boost this to 1536p. 

The camera also has a 150-degree square field of view that ensures you can see the full length of anyone on the doorstep, just like the Arlo Video Doorbell.

The mains powered doorbell also has a new 3D Motion feature that allows you to set a specific threshold and only starts recording when a radar senses that a person or object has passed the threshold, to reduce unwanted activity alerts. The same radar is also used in the ‘Bird’s Eye View’ feature that lets you see the exact path the object or person took on an aerial map, to give you a better understanding of what triggered the activity alert.

Ring has also improved the microphones and speaker with noise cancellation to make conversing with anyone on your doorstep much clearer.

Alexa Greetings

Ring has confirmed the Alexa Greetings feature, which was recently unveiled for the first iteration of the Ring Video Doorbell Pro and sees Amazon's voice assistant answer the door and take a message if you can't get to the door yourself, is available for the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, as well, but only in the US. 

This feature is one of three 'Smart Responses’ being rolled out to Ring Video Doorbells in the US, although there's no word on when these features will be made available to Ring Video Doorbells in other regions.
