Has a formal release date for the Battery Version of the Eufy Video Doorbell been announced yet, and when will it be available for purchase?
Hint - I would LOVE to be a beta (or even PRE-Beta) tester for you .
I have just returned my RIng 2 - EXTREMELY disappointed with the performance of that device as far as Audio is concerned.
The biggest issue is that device simply will not work for 2-way communication with late-model Samsung phones (not viable for use at all!!) and generally, the audio at the bell, even from other phones (and Alexa Show) is barely audible without being right up against it.
Both of these issues are widely reported on the Ring Forums (unfortunately had not seen prior in User reviews, only after experiencing after purchase did I find these in search) - but Ring seems to be unwilling to acknowledge these problems. I am someone who rarely returns items and willing to wait for fixes to arrive - but that at least needs some acknowledge of a problem for a fix to be developed!
Sorry about the Rant - not really the medium for Ring bashing - just explaining my experience with the ‘other’ device.
As soon as I read the reviews on the Eufy - and that the battery version would be released “at the beginning of the year” I recognized I would be prepared to wait for it - more than willing to believe based on the Wired Eufy performance reports that the battery version will meet my requirements, even sight-unseen at this time.
(it’s not that I don’t possess the tehcnical capability to install the currently available wired one - it’s simply the mounting location of the existing bell-push is on a stucco wall too far away from the preferred location for a video bell, making hard-wiring prohibitive)
So I’m anxiously waiting for availability news …
