2 products



    When it comes to design, there's not much setting apart the Video Doorbell 4 from the Video Doorbell 3. Both devices share virtually identical dimensions, measuring 5.1 inches in width, 2.4 inches in height, and 1.1 inches in thickness. This consistent design follows Ring's typical approach for battery-powered video doorbells.

    Both video doorbells come with a rechargeable battery pack, a USB cable, installation hardware, corner wedge kits for adjusting the doorbell's position to avoid obstructions, and a satin nickel faceplate. Once you activate the doorbell, they'll send you an email offering an extra faceplate free of charge. Additional color options like green, orange, and purple are also available.

    In terms of durability in various conditions, both doorbells can handle temperatures from minus 5 degrees to 120 degrees and can withstand exposure to rain and other forms of precipitation.

    Two-Way Audio

    If you wish to interact with someone at your door, both the Ring Video Doorbell 4 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 provide two-way audio function for real-time communication. The audio quality is comparable. For moments when you're occupied, the Quick Replies feature can manage conversations with visitors on your behalf. This feature offers preset responses that kindly ask them to leave a message. It's important to note that using this feature doesn't require a subscription. However, the ability to access and review recorded Quick Replies interactions in the Event History is exclusive to Ring Protect subscribers.

    Smart Home Integrations

    Both devices are compatible with Amazon Alexa and are among the most popular smart doorbells. This integration enables you to receive announcements on your Echo devices whenever someone presses the doorbell. With a Protect subscription, you can also enjoy voice announcements through Alexa and even have Alexa show you the live video feed on your Echo Show, Fire TV, or Fire Tablet when the doorbell detects a person.

    The two video doorbells also work with Google Home, although there are some minor limitations in terms of complete integration between these devices. Nevertheless, Google Assistant can still be used to control certain features of your Ring doorbell cameras.

    Within the Ring ecosystem, both devices can be paired with the Ring Chime, a wireless doorbell chime that plugs into a standard wall outlet. It provides audible alerts throughout your home when someone presses the doorbell or when motion is detected.

    Power Source

    The Ring Video Doorbell 4 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 are both powered by a detachable and rechargeable Quick-Release Battery Pack. This eliminates the need for complex wiring during installation. The process is straightforward: insert the battery, link to the Ring App, follow the app's setup instructions, mount the device with the supplied screws, and attach the faceplate securely.

    If you prefer not to rely solely on the battery, both products offer the option of being hardwired into your current doorbell system. This requires a power source within the specifications of 8-24 VAC, with a maximum of 40VA, and a frequency of 50 or 60Hz.

    Battery Life & Charging Options

    Both the Ring Video Doorbell 4 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 are equipped with a rechargeable battery that offers a convenient power solution. The battery life typically lasts between 6 to 12 months, but can vary depending on usage, settings, and environmental factors. Regular usage and the frequency of motion events can affect how often the battery needs recharging.

    When it comes to charging options, you can remove the battery from the doorbell and recharge it using the provided micro-USB cable. This means you don't need to remove the entire doorbell from its mount for charging. It's a simple and user-friendly process that ensures your doorbell remains operational without lengthy downtime.

    Cloud Storage

    Both the Ring Video Doorbell 4 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 provide the option for cloud storage, enabling you to store video footage of events. With a subscription to the Ring Protect Plan, you can access and review recorded videos for up to 180 days. This extended storage period allows you to keep track of past events and enhances the overall functionality of the doorbells by offering an extensive video history that can be valuable for security, convenience, and peace of mind.

    Main Differences

    Video Quality

    When it comes to video quality, both Ring Video Doorbells record and show footage in full 1080p HD with a 160-degree horizontal and 84-degree vertical view. However, the Video Doorbell 4 takes the lead in image quality compared to its older counterpart. The camera's Pre-Roll feature, which was first introduced with the Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, contributes to this enhancement.

    Motion Detection

    The Pre-Roll feature also provides the Ring Video Doorbell 4 with a more comprehensive motion detection. This allows the Ring Doorbell to record motion activity four seconds before the actual motion event is triggered. These crucial seconds of activity are then added to the recorded event clip. If you're a Ring Protect subscriber, you'll get a video of the entire event to better see what's happening at your front door.

    When Pre-Roll is accessible, it appears as a small image within the Live View screen. If you tap on the Pre-Roll picture-in-picture, it will expand to full screen, with the Live View displayed as a smaller image within it.

    Both of these video doorbells come with motion detection, meaning you can receive alerts when the doorbell is pressed or when motion is detected. You have the option to customize the motion zones, deciding which areas the camera watches, which can help prevent false motion alerts or unneeded notifications.

    With a subscription to the Ring Protect Plan, you can also receive Person Alerts and Package Alerts, as the video doorbells can tell the difference between the two. Furthermore, Rich Notifications show you a snapshot of the motion event directly on your phone's lock screen.

    Night Vision

    Both the Ring Video Doorbell 4 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 are equipped with infrared night vision capabilities. This means that even in low-light conditions or at night, these doorbells can capture clear video footage of your front door and its surroundings. The night vision feature uses infrared technology to illuminate the area, allowing the cameras to record and display images in black and white. This enables you to have visibility and monitor your doorstep even when it's dark outside, enhancing the overall security and functionality of the doorbells.

    However, the Pre-Roll feature on the Ring Video Doorbell 4 enables it to capture more detail with its night vision.
