Ring is apparently gearing up to release the second-generation version of its high-end Pro video doorbell. The Ring Wi-Fi Video Doorbell Pro 2 has just leaked in a listing at Best Buy Canada, as spotted by ZatzNotFunny.
It appears to be a direct successor to the high-end Ring Video Doorbell Pro at the same CA$325, but also the first Ring to stream video resolution at higher than 1080p, with a 1536p “expanded Head to Toe view” that “allows you to clearly see who is at your door.” That means Amazon’s catching up to the field-of-view and resolution that Arlo’s Video Doorbell introduced in late 2019.
You’ll also notice it comes with Alexa greetings something Ring brought to the original Video Doorbell Pro just the other day. Note that unlike most other Ring doorbells, the Pro models typically don’t have swappable batteries as an option; you have to wire them up to a powerful doorbell transformer, which you may or may not already have in your home. In January, Ring also added a $60 wired model, its least expensive yet.
The Best Buy page suggests it might be available March 31st.
