There is a lot of lag when you’re trying to configure the device. It seems to take forever for setting changes to take effect. In the app you can’t preview all the chime sounds either, and if the phone falls asleep while you’re waiting for the Chime to update, when you unlock the phone you get a garbled screen with overlapping options.
The Chime isn’t super loud and there’s considerable delay between button press on my hardwired Ring Doorbell Pro; enough delay that the Chime Pro rings right AFTER my phone dings at me.
The device itself is very wide, and covers parts of the neighboring outlets when installed in a 2-gang box. The plug on the back can’t be rotated or un-clipped and re-clipped so if your outlets are installed per NEC recommendations with the ground plug on top, you will end up with an upside-down chime. This is mainly an issue because the bottom of the unit isn’t as well assembled as the top, and now I have a super bright, non-dimmable, upward-facing night light. I also didn’t see a way for the night light to only come on at night, so I just disabled it entirely.
As a range-extender i guess it’s functionally fine. I don’t really need a range extended though, I have a really good and fast WiFi network set up in our home for IOT devices. I probably could have bought the older Chime model but I thought there would be some enhancements given that they were calling this one a “Pro.”
