  • Won't show videos & no help

    It alerts when someone puts up a video, and my wife can see it on her iPhone, but it just goes on perma-load (black screen with a swirl) until you wear down and give up... which has been the same experience I have had with customer service. Vague advice that anyone knows, but I did it - delete, reload, I even did a factory phone reset recently. Didn't work before it, doesn't work after it. That is what it is, but when customer service is little more than a litany of "We're working on it for you" messages followed by "We haven't heard from you so please let us know if you are still having problems or we will close your case in 2 days" emails, you soon realize they are just wearing you down until YOU give up and go away. It's bad enough the doorbell can't pick up a router through the wall 2 feet away fast enough to answer the bell or see movement, but to have to forward the neighbors messages to email so I can copy the link and open it in Safari... well, what is there in that runaround to give a 2nd star? I'm giving serious thought to going to a mew system before I have to pay yet another year's maintenance fee.

    Really not sure how to rate this app as I have downloaded it, 3 times now , I touch home nothing happens, has me in a 3rd world country, needless to say I have removed it again, this time I plan to leave it off my phone, if I can get it to work on my iPad then I will leave it there, if not it goes away as well, I also don’t understand why there are two apps for this , as one say ads and the other nothing, downloaded the ad free app and both apps downloaded at the same time, I am guessing that this is probably the issue. As of today July 20, 2018, I have been on hold with customer support for over 45 minutes, I can say I got my app up and running finally which is good. I just had one simple question why is one camera showing true colors and the other showing everything in red, I am tired of being on hold and could not find the answer via FAQ, so that lead me to call CS, which seems to be a mistake. I can say I having the Ring System on my Home though it would be nice to have answers to my questions.
  • Safety concern

    So I posted a legitimate safety concern and was emailed back to let me know it was deleted. I guess I didn’t have a video that makes for a good selling point for their products. Here’s what I posted or very close to it....the gentle tone/alert noise that your phone makes when the doorbell detects motion...I would like the doorbell to make that same tone in a gentle way to announce that motion has been detected and a video is in progress. Very simple right??? But the idea was deleted. I want others to realize this so maybe it can be added. This feature would tell the thief what was going on and here’s why....when I get a motion detected alert it takes so long for ‘ring’ to come up on my phone that the bad guy is already gone with my package...but guess what I got???? A great video to post on the app...what good is this except for a good selling point for ring. Bottom line...my package has been taken while I was waiting for the app to open where I could see ...by that time all I see is the back of a vehicle more than a block away and riding in to the sunset with my package....but I got a great Video you can use to impress your next customer into buying your products.
  • Just Wasted My Time! Problem Resolved!

    I thought that the premise of this app was good. And I wanted to try it but unfortunately it simply does not work. Despite my typing in my correct address the app still couldn’t locate my neighborhood. Even though I’m near a mid sized city. The app actually placed my location in an entirely different state!! With no possible way to change it to the correct location! I tried deleting and reinstalling the app. I viewed the help files. I even went to the Ring support pages on their website to try and find out how to get the app to use my correct address. At least the correct state! All to no avail. I deleted the app and I won’t recommend it to anyone. Perhaps it will work for people who currently own a Ring device, I don’t. But according to the description you don’t need to own a Ring device to use the app. I was interested in buying a Ring device at some point, after this experience, not so much. Updated Monday May 14: I wanted to amend my initial review, after the developer kindly posted a response, I did contact them by email. They responded very quickly to my email and were very helpful. My issue with the app has now been resolved and it shows my correct location. Anyone else having the above issue would do well to contact the developer as I did and they will work with you until the issue is resolved. Thank you.
  • very good but some users dont understand benefits

    Like it very much. First used to report car taking photos of homes in area. neighbor took photo of cars tag number. driver got mad about that. claimed he was taking photos for insurance I was applying for which was totally false. reported to police who said he may have been casing houses for burglary. Several neighbors complained about my posting, saying photos are perfectly legal! Several other postings about finding lost dogs, trying to find owners. All dogs got returned to owners because of posting on neighbors app but several Ring neighbors posted reocurring complaints, saying app is "not for lost dogs!" Need to advise users that ring/neighbors app can be used for more than just crime related issues.
  • Great for nosy suspicious, racist neighbors

    I have the neighborhood app hooked to my ring camera app. And while this critique is not really about the app’s intended function, it’s the apps creators responsibility for how the app gets used. This app is full of innocent people knocking on front doors, kids riding bikes in neighbors yards, and people walking down the street being accused of casing houses, and just being suspicious in general. These people being titled ‘suspicious’ are almost always black. Their pictures are forever captured in your app with negative labels attached to them for nothing! This app breeds fear into a neighborhood because it’s a constant list of everything bad that’s happened in a ridiculously wide default area. It’s full of people showing you everything bad that happened to them and everything bad that could have happened to them. I urge Ring to filter these postings more responsibly and to not let people use it as a hate forum, or really just plain fear forum.
  • Great app but could be better

    My town is kind of quiet so I don’t get many alerts but I did expand my area to 9 miles so I get more. There’s a few things I would like to suggest. One is to allow the user to customize the coverage area. Also to allow us to change our location to see videos and alerts in other areas. I noticed I can only make an area 9 sq miles and I can’t move my location. My parents are in other towns and I cannot check Alerts in their town. I often cannot submit comments on videos. Idk if it’s because you block certain keywords (and I’m not posting anything bad or vulgar). Simple comments don’t post when I press “comment”. It’s annoying. I end up trying something different then it works. There’s no rhyme or reason as to what comments are accepted or not. The biggest problem I’m finding right now is I may not be getting credits for people downloading the app using my link. I’ve had $10 for 3 weeks now and this can’t be right. I have no way to know if people are actually downloading the app or not. If you’re going to have an affiliate program, having a way for us to know if someone downloads the link would help. That’s all I can think of right now. ☺️

    Is essentially the NextDoor app without all the noise. Its insane what's going on in your neighborhood without you knowing. Didn't realize the extent of it and always thought I lived in a relatively safe neighborhood. I also love that this is an app for everyone regardless of what camera system you own (or if you don't even have one at all). I dont have one currently but will be getting a set up soon so I can contribute to exposing these criminals lurking on our properties. Been sharing the app with family and friends because for every person who downloads the app through your share link, you get $10 in Ring credits! Should be able to get a video doorbell for free soon--thanks Ring!
  • The best place to find out about neighborhood crimes first

    I love this app because I get alerted when there’s criminal activity in my area. I am amazed at some of the stuff people are posting— I had no idea these things were happening right outside my door. I feel so much safer being on this app because I’m now aware of what to be on the lookout for. Plus neighbors are much more friendly on here than other platforms. There’s no politics, no bullying, no BS. Just the factual info my family and I need to remain vigilant. The best part is I’ve been able to get other people in my neighborhood on here because they don’t even have to own ring cameras to use it because it’s open to everyone.
  • Bad Referral program

    What I love: Feeling safe in my soon to be new neighborhood! The goal of the app. What I dislike: I’ve sent my copied linked out to 40 friends. All of which signed up. Many of them sent me screenshots. A couple of them got the $10 added to their account - and I didn’t back. Other didn’t get the $10 and then downloading didn’t give me the $10. It seems to work better if people are on WiFi. I even tested this out on my mother phone- she never got the $10 and I never got $10 for her downloading it. I tested on 3 of my apartment neighbors device and nothing. Customer service confirmed that their isn’t a limitation. I don’t understand it. Make me feel like this company is disloyal & that I should buy my complete security system with Nest. Out of the 40 referrals downloaded received 15. That’s pretty sad numbers. Is it all a promotion trick??
