Ring Doorbell Delay

The Ring video doorbells can capture video footage. This particular footage can be sent to the Law Enforcement agencies through an app named ‘Neighbors’, with this app, the video footage can be shared on social media as well. The Advocacy group from Civil Rights criticized the partnership with the police.

Sometimes the functions of live video recording, the chime, and all other notifications, are delayed for some reason. The reasons behind these unwilling occurrences are still unknown. But it happens basically for some technical issues.

How To Fix The Problems?:

If someone is receiving delayed notifications on the ring doorbell, there are specific ways to fix it:

Changing It On IP Address: 

An IP address or internet protocol address consists a series of numbers. Its function is to identify any device on a network. It performs communication between computers, through the internet, or on other networks. The information sent between devices and networks, and IP addresses can identify them. They include location information and make the devices available for communication. The following steps are needed to follow:

When the ring bell senses any type of motion by pressing the bell, it rings. Then it sends this data to the cloud. Cloud is the place where all the data is stored. Cloud then sends the information to the phone.

Cloud uses the IP address to identify the ring device and the person to whom this particular notification is sent. We will get to know all these while communicating with it. Having a static IP address can make this verification process more efficient. 

One has to log in to their router by using DHCP settings. DHCP is a management agreement of the network. Its function is to allow an IP address to any device on a network. So that they can use their IP address for communication. Then one has to specify that particular IP address for the ring doorbell. By using this process one can get their notification faster.

 By Switching Off The Battery Up-Gradation: 

If the last method does not work properly then this method can be applied. One can remove the Ring App from the list of the

other apps. In this way, they can put this particular app to sleep. In this manner the battery can be saved and the app can work at its own pace. It does not have to compete with other apps to provide notifications. The following things are needed to follow-

Firstly, one has to go to the Settings of their phone.

After finding the battery, one needs to select an option named ‘battery optimization’.

Then by selecting the app named “Ring App”, one can activate the ‘Don’t optimize’ option. 

If someone activates the battery optimization option, then the Ring App cannot function properly. In many cases, one cannot receive a single notification because of the slow functioning of this app.

By Resolving Wi-Fi Issues: 

If the Wi-Fi connection is getting slower near the doorbell, in comparison to the whole house then one can solve the issues by following these steps:

The external obstacles must be omitted that are creating as much as possible. The middle track, between the video doorbell and the router, must be kept clear. If the router is out of date, then one needs to use a new one. It must possess an amplifier registered within. One can also use Wi-Fi extensions, such as “Ring Chime Pro” to develop the signal quality for ring products. Even after applying this method, if the bell is not working properly then the service provider of the internet must be called. They can resolve the issue by providing any up-gradation of the current plan.

By Restarting The Doorbell:

Sometimes by applying the restart option many issues can be resolved. For this, one has to open the Ring App. There from the Menu option they can find the Restart button. 

By Resetting The Phone:

To reset the phone one has to press the orange button for 20 seconds and release the button. After releasing it, with the blinking of the light in the front, one can understand the phenomenon of restarting the doorbell. Then one has to wait for a few seconds for the completion of this process.

By Calling Customer care: 

This is the last option if all of the above mentioned processes failed. Then one has to contact the customer care service.

Conclusion :

Now we have learnt “Ring Doorbell Delay”, It is disturbing to get late notifications from the Ring doorbell. Sometimes it can lead to missing any prior engagement. If someone arrives at the door and is not notified on time, then it can create a lot of problems both for the visitor and for those who are waiting inside. If this type of problem occurs repeatedly, then the company must think of manufacturing a better product.
