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
