I would like to get either the Doorbell or the Doorbell Pro. I don’t really care about the cost difference but I see a lot of negative reviews of the newer Doorbell Pro so I am wondering if I should get the older Wyze Doorbell. What are the major deciding factors? I would like it to record video with motion detection but I want to avoid a ton of false positives from cars driving by, etc.
Welcome to the user community forum @emkman!
I have a VDB v1, not facing the road, and I still get false positives after dialing in my settings. There are issues with both and both require a subscription to get Smart AI detection.
VDB v1 is wire powered, no chime required but available. Pro is wire powered or battery powered, chime required as bridge.
I would HIGHLY suggest doing a forum search for Video Doorbell and spending time reading posts. You will be enlightened by what you find.
I have the DoorBell Pro model and I absolutely love it. I have not had one problem with it since I got it from the pre-order. Resolution is fantastic, records what I need it to and whatever else you expect from a doorbell. A lot of the detection will be the AI detecting things and sensitivities can be adjusted, my doorbell faces the road and it has never picked up a false positive.
