News Blink vs. Ring: Video doorbells compared

Feb 14, 2024
While it's larger, the Blink Doorbell does have a major advantage over the Ring Video Doorbell: it comes equipped with an onboard battery in addition to a traditional wiring installation option.
The Blink Doorbell requires batteries even if you already have the traditional wiring. It's unclear whether having the doorbell wired has any benefit other than the ability to use a chime. Even Amazon forums contradict themselves.

I'm considering purchasing an adapter that fits into the AA battery compartment that replaces the batteries and changing out my transformer. I would rather not have to buy special batteries every 2 years for my devices.
