“At Ring, we are continuously pushing the boundaries to bring the most innovative devices and features to our customers,” said Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and Chief Inventor. “While features similar to Pre-Roll have been available on our wired devices, we believe it is important to also offer this feature to users with a battery-powered Video Doorbell, so that no one ever misses a moment at their doorstep. With Ring Video Doorbell 3 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, we’re excited to continue bringing customers even more home security options, while keeping user privacy and control front and center.”

Next Generation Video Doorbells

Ring Video Doorbell 3 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus build upon the great features of the Ring Video Doorbell 2 to now also include a new, adjustable motion zone, called near zone, that can detect motion within five to 15 feet of the front door, as well as enhanced dual-band 2.4Ghz/5Ghz wifi for improved connectivity. Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, Ring’s premium, battery-powered Video Doorbell, is Ring’s first battery device to offer Pre-Roll. With Alexa compatibility, users can simply say, “Alexa, show me the front door,” to see their Ring Video Doorbell 3’s Live View, or say, “Alexa, answer the front door,” to begin speaking with whoever is at their door. And with Linked Devices, available across all Ring products, users can link their doorbell to compatible Ring Cams or Smart Lighting to create an integrated, whole-home security system.

Hear Alerts Loud and Clear

The newly designed Ring Chime and Chime Pro provide customers with audible notifications throughout their homes; and Chime Pro includes a built-in nightlight, as well as a wifi extender to improve and expand wifi connectivity across users’ Ring Doorbells and Cams. Both new Chime devices are compatible with all Ring Doorbells and Cams and provide real-time audio notifications when a Ring device detects motion, or when someone rings the doorbell, ensuring users never miss a moment.

Home Security You Can Control

Privacy, security, and control are foundational to Ring. Ring Video Doorbell 3 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus include Privacy Zones, which allow users to exclude areas of the camera field of view from video recording. Similar to all of Ring’s Doorbells and Cams, both the new doorbells feature toggles that allow users to turn off video or audio recording for an extra layer of privacy, at any time.

Pricing and Availability

Ring Video Doorbell 3 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus are available now for pre-order on and for $199.99 and $229.99, respectively. Ring Video Doorbell 3 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus will be available for purchase on April 8, 2020 in the U.S.

The all-new Ring Chime is available for pre-order today on and for $29.99; the new Chime Pro is also available for pre-order today at and for $49.99. Both Chimes will be available for purchase on April 8, 2020 in the U.S.
