1. Wi-Fi Extension:
With Ring Chime, if you have your Wi-Fi router away from your doorbell, your doorbell will face a significant drop in speed and thus its performance will be extended. There is no option to solve this problem except for spending and setting up a new access point between your router and the doorbell.
However, the updated Ring Chime Pro acts as a Wi-Fi extender as well. Thus, it will act as an access point for your Ring doorbell. Therefore, your doorbell will get better connectivity even if it is placed distant from your router. You won’t even have to install an extra access point in between the two. However, Ring Chime Pro will act as a network extender only for Ring devices. Thus, it won’t actually serve as an access point.
Keeping this additional feature in consideration, Chime Pro ranks above Ring Chime in comparison.
2. Alert Amplification:
If you face problem in hearing your doorbell alert at an upper floor or in a distant room, Ring Chime Pro is again at your rescue. Chime Pro amplifies the sound of the alert signals reducing the chances of your missing any door-call or an alert signal.Ring Chime has no such feature and this is yet again a point that makes Ring Chime Pro rank above Ring Chime.
