The New Ring Video Doorbell Wired: Small on Size, Big on Features

By Ring on January 27, 2021

At Ring, we think that feature-rich smart home security should come in all shapes and sizes and be available at a great value, so that you have options to find the right device for your home. That’s why we’re excited to introduce Ring Video Doorbell Wired, our smallest model yet that packs a big punch. At just $59.99, our latest doorbell includes all of the essential features plus nonstop power and reliable performance.

“Since day one, Ring’s focus has been to invent security solutions that solve real customer problems,” says Jamie Siminoff, Founder and Chief Inventor of Ring. “With Ring Video Doorbell Wired, we packed the features that matter into a small, compact design, giving customers more choice when it comes to selecting the Ring Video Doorbell that best fits their needs.”

A Wired Video Doorbell That Doesn’t Compromise on Features

Ring Video Doorbell Wired cuts the size, but does not sacrifice functionality: This doorbell is packed with features like 1080p HD video with Night Vision, Live View and Two-Way Talk with noise cancellation. So you can check in on your home anytime, from anywhere — see and speak to visitors in real-time using the Ring App or Alexa-enabled devices, whether it’s asking a delivery person to leave a package safely out of sight, or warning an intruder that the police are on the way.


Plus, Ring Video Doorbell Wired lets you personalize your video doorbell experience for your needs and your space. Advanced Motion Detection powers features like Customizable Motion Zones, which allow you to set specific areas where you want to receive alerts, as well as Privacy Zones that eliminate areas you don’t want to monitor at all — so you’ll get only the notifications that matter most to you.

Easy Installation and Control

Ring Video Doorbell Wired is easy to install. It takes just a few steps, and once you connect the device to your existing doorbell wiring you’ll have nonstop reliable power. It even comes with a toolkit that has everything you need to put it up in minutes.

Set up is also a cinch on the Ring App, where you have complete control over your Ring Video Doorbell Wired experience: Set your notification preferences, customize your motion and privacy zones, and more.

Even More Advanced Features with Ring Protect

Subscribe to an optional Ring Protect Plan, and you can review, share and save videos on your Ring App for up to 1801 days.

With Ring Protect, Ring Video Doorbell Wired is even more powerful and helpful, giving you access to extra features:

  • Advanced Pre-Roll, which gives you up to six seconds of high-definition video from before motion is detected for additional context on what triggered the Ring alert;
  • People Only Mode, which sets your Ring Video Doorbell Wired to only alert you when it detects motion caused by people;
  • Rich Notifications, which sends you a still image from your doorbell camera as a preview in the pop-up notification, so you can see at a glance what triggered the alert, without even opening the Ring App;
  • Snapshot Capture, which automatically takes snapshots at intervals during the day so you can review what’s happened in front of your doorbell, even in between events.

Like Ring Video Doorbell Wired, Ring Protect is a great value starting at just $3.99/month or $39.99/year per device.

Affordable, Reliable Whole-Home Security

“Ring Video Doorbell Wired is a great option for both customers looking to enhance their existing security system, and also for those looking to get started with Ring,” says Siminoff.

Ring Video Doorbell Wired can be linked to your other Ring devices — such as Ring Alarm, Ring Security Cameras and Ring Smart Lighting — to create an integrated whole-home security system to help protect your entire home and property. For example, Ring Video Doorbell Wired can start recording when a Ring Security Camera senses motion or when Ring Alarm is triggered.

This new addition to our product lineup is just the latest in our commitment to inventing the best home security technology to help make neighborhoods safer — at a great value.

Ring Video Doorbell Wired is available now for pre-order on and and will begin shipping on February 24.
