RING Video Doorbell .. one caution to be aware of

The Ring video doorbell is a great invention, great idea, and one which provides a lot of people the ability to dissuade potential thieves, protect their property and stop trespassers but one thing that is often missed in their advertising and by buyers who purchase their Video Doorbell in order to protect their property.

The thing that is overlooked is that, specifically, with the Video Doorbell the video has to be uploaded to the cloud.  In other words the purchaser has to make an additional purchase/commitment to buy cloud memory space for the video to be uploaded to.  There are other video doorbells, by other vendors that store to a memory card or storage in the home but Video Doorbell, the best known, is one that requires an additional subscription for it to work as it is advertised.   So buyer be aware that additional reoccurring cost will have to be paid in order for the doorbell to work as intended or advertised and those rates are found here:  https://shop.ring.com/pages/protect-plans

All Ring devices will operate without an additional fee or subscription. However, we offer optional Ring Video Recording Plans that cost a monthly or yearly subscription fee. Without Ring Video Recording, you will still receive alerts when visitors press your Doorbell or trigger the motion sensors in your device, and you’ll still get live streaming video and two-way audio, so you can see, hear and speak to guests in real-time, as the event is happening. However, if you don’t have Ring Video Recording and you miss an alert or a live event, you will not be able to review the video.

That was my understanding as well.  IF the user wanted to have the ability to record video for a hard copy of an event then they would be required to take one of the subscription plans otherwise the event could be seen in real time but not recorded and thus lost.   I just don't think a lot of people understand that and believe that it might have some kind of recording ability within such as an SD card.  I wonder why they didn't choose that option?
