Ring Video Doorbell Proves Its Worth…

Ring Video Doorbell Proves Its Worth…


I came across this interesting article about the Ring video doorbell just last week in my home town of Phoenix. I’ve said this to everyone I know and I’ll say it again. Getting a smart video doorbell is well worth the cost. 

Here’s some text of the article:

The man says he got an alert from his “Ring” camera on Tuesday morning that a package had arrived at his front door. About 90 minutes later he got another alert that showed a woman grabbing the package and then taking off in an SUV. He says he rushed home and spotted the alleged thieves’ car parked nearby.

“We just pulled up to them, came out of the car and said we have video of them stealing our package and asked for it back,” he said. “They handed it to us right away. He’s hoping others will learn from his experience and consider investing in outdoor security cameras.

I’ve have personally installed nearly a dozen smart doorbells, mostly the Ring brand. They have 2 models, the Ring video doorbell and the Ring Pro. Both have pros and cons.

Here’s the breakdown:

Ring Video Doorbell:

  • Battery or wired connection (great if you don’t have wiring at your front door)
  • 720p video resolution
  • Motion detection is available in pre-designated zones
  • Cannot initiate live view unless a ring or motion is detected
  • Comes in one of 4 color varieties
  • Currently sells for about $200 USD (as of publication date)

Ring Pro:

  • Wired only, no battery option (and you must have a somewhat powerful transformer to power it)
  • 1080p video resolution
  • Motion detection is available in custom set zones
  • Can initiate a live view upon demand
  • Comes with 4 switchable face plates
  • Currently sells for about $250 USD (as of publication date)

Both advertise that they can be installed by the consumer. And they can, but I’ve done enough of these to tell you that it is not for the faint of heart. And those who need the Ring, like those with disabilities or mobility issues, will not be able to do it. If you are not a handy-man / tech guru like me, I suggest you hire someone to do it right.

And that’s where I come in. Hire Bodine Tech to install your August, Skybell or Ring video doorbell for you. We charge a competitive $50 for the doorbell install. If you need a new transformer (I’ve seen in required more than you’d think) or a new chime, we have competitive prices. We will even source and purchase the accessories for you.

With our install comes app/account setup and customer instruction. We don’t leave until the product works and you know how to work it.

  3. Enjoy the convenience and security of having a smart video doorbell

Done! 🙂


Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Controller for your Smart Home…

Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Controller for your Smart Home

Yes, Bodine Tech can install the Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Controller for you. This is by far the easiest and most simple way to add smart control of your existing garage door controller.

It works with virtually all old openers. Installation is unobtrusive. And this can control up to 3 doors (additional sensors are required, though).

As much as I like this product, there are 2 cons to the system.

  1. The door sensors require batteries which will need to be changed every 12-24 months.
  2. Occasionally (albeit rarely), the sensor will report the door as open when it is in fact closed. A false error can send you into a frenzy unnecessarily.

Over all, I’m pleased with the product. If you are interested in this or possibly another garage door solutions, please contact Bodine Tech today!

Google Wifi for Your Smart Home…

 Google Wifi for Your Smart Home

Google Wifi is the latest offering from Google to simplify your home wi-fi. Unlike many other wi-fi routers, this one is designed for homes with multiple devices connected all the time, a.k.a. Smart Homes!

Bodine Tech can help procure, set up and/or configure Google Wifi for you. This isn’t the only router I recommend, but it is one of them, partially due to it’s simplicity to use and it’s great “mesh” approach with means simple coverage with little effort.

Here’s a list of my Pros and Cons:


  • Easy Setup
  • Handles many devices
  • Whole-home coverage
  • Simple maintenance via app


  • Limited setup options and features
  • Limited LAN connections for hard wired devices
  • Can only be controlled via Android or iOS apps
  • Requires active internet to manage network
