I love....Love ??...If you already use Google Now on your phone, then this will make your life a whole lot cooler because it will already know enough about you to tell you how long it will take you to get to work (taking traffic in mind too) and be able to give you a rundown on your day and the news you are interested in....(Nothing against the Echo line- it's an excellent collection of products that are near to my heart, and i'm still keeping mine (for now), but Google has the potential and A.I. power to really outdo the competition, including the Echo.) If you're trying to decide between the two, or are even just curious about the product in general- don't hesitate, grab this one!...Got it during the Black Friday sale.

5 stars!...It's ok...Great doorbell for tech family...Pros: -Easy install -Powered by existing wiring -Fit existing location cleanly -Matches existing door hardware color/design -Motion sensitivity easily adjusted to prevent false alarms -Excellent quality video and audio Cons: -You have to ring bell to save updates/changes to motion configuration (no remote changing) -Sometimes delayed on motion - you see the UPS man walking away but not approaching or leaving package....Wish I would have got the better camera model but this was 120 on Black Friday so I pulled a cheap....

good job...Love it!...Great doorbell for tech family...My sister has one and recommended the Ring to us - it's a wonderful security tool - it alarms us on my iPhone and iPad when someone comes to my front and back door and if I am away I can still see who comes to my house and talk to them through my iPhone - it's very reassuring...I bought it because it was a really good deal on Black Friday, honestly thought it was going to be a waste of money.

Great App....Good buy....Even though you are paying a bit more for this smoke/ carbon monoxide alarm device, I realize that it's a investment for the protection of your family and your property....I hope they will never be tested for real, but I like knowing that they will contact the fire department if needed and that we set them up with our home automation system to contact us if any alarms go off.

I like it...5 Stars...Awesome product for family...Alright I have to admit this is a great product I started off with the Ring doorbell and upgraded to the Ring pro (big hassle my fault) turns our my current doorbell voltage wasn't enough to run my Ring pro :p I ended up doing the electrical work and adding a new transformer.

Good buy...Nice app...Great remote for the family....It took a day to setup everything and so far so good no complaints about that however I've only been using it for a few days... My setup is in my man cave and the WiFi is inside the house... The hub is pretty picky on where it should be placed but once I found a happy medium all is well....I bought this on a lark near Black Friday because there was a good sale.

Worth it!...Love it!...The entire tile family of products are fantastic....If there was a slight battery drain sitting in my drawer I can understand that but when I first got this product I showed it off to everyone I knew by demoing it for people, and I've a young child who loves playing with daddy's keys so every morning instead of wasting my time looking I would just use the app.

Nice tone...Great bell...I would definitely recommend to family and friends....Very happy since they came out with this WiFi RING bell as it extends the reach of the entry door Chime, thus allowing you to have one on your patio, master bedroom or wherever you wish....I got the Ring on a black Friday deal and loved it but needed something to announce that someone had pushed the door bell outside if my cell wasn't close by.
Ring Chime: With this indoor speaker, you can connect to your Ring Smart Video Doorbell using your home wireless network to receive audible alerts when you have a visitor.
Great !...Love it...I love that I can change the temperature remotely, how it regulates the temp in my home and that I can put it on eco mode if I so desire but they REALLY need to modify the filter notification module since changing your filter is extremely important in maintaining the life of your air conditioner especially if you have pets like I do....Another great feature is the App on my Apple Smart phone, I can manually control the units from anywhere, anytime... As an example, we were away all day and I awoke the Nest thermostats from their away mode about 30 minutes before I arrived back home, our house was at a great temperature when we arrived without having to wait for it to warm up after we got back....This was a great Black Friday purchase.

Good Buy...Lover it...The ability to heat and cool is extremely well liked also, so during those odd times of the year when one day you have heat on in the morning and air on in the afternoon, you can use that setting so you don't have to keep running back and forth to the thermostat....I upgraded even though there is not much different because it has newer hardware and it should better integrate with the seven 2nd generation Nest Protects I am going to install this weekend because it also has the same low power blue tooth transmitter in it that the 2nd generation protects have....Recently purchased this during a Black Friday deal and I'm happy I did.

Great buy...I love it...Its also great that it can track up to 4 different people, because its one of those things where everyone wants to turn their noses up at in the store as a frivolous fitness device, but once its in your home everyone wants to step on it....I've been eyeing this scale for about 2 years or more, so glad I got it, not sure I want to believe the BFI but I don't know what type of algorithm its using to calculate that either, best part is I don't have to remember to input my weight into my FitBit profile or on my phone.

LED Bulb...Awesome !...For example, I use these in a bedroom or the kitchen where movies and media are not the focus and color effects are not really practical or necessary (let's be honest, they are never really necessary but it's way cool)....Light is just a basic hue light oim glad it was only 14 upim probabbky gonna take it back tomorrow it's good fro what it's it's nice and bright and can dim but that's about it it's not a white ambiance light and it'd da sure not a color ambiance light so it's really got not use in my aresenal cause I already have a house full of lights like this one already

Love it....Worth it...I have several floor lamps that don't have three-way or dimmer switches, so without having them retrofitted, they were able to turn on or off, with no adjusting the light level....I love these lights and have scattered them around our house, but primarily I wanted them for our front and side outdoor lights so they can be controlled when we are out of town.
