Rapid Ring is built for speed. As a companion to the Ring app, it’s the
fastest, simplest way to answer notifications and check on your home in real
time. Simply download and log in with your Ring account. Choose the devices
you wish to answer and Ring notifications will open automatic...
I posted an extensive review of the original Ring app, so I won’t go into a bunch of detail here and just cut to the chase. After having an endless amount of issues with the Ring app making my cameras useless, I hoped downloading this app would solve my issues. However, I’m continuing to experience almost the same problems. The camera will load more often than the Ring app but neither would load late last night when I received motion alerts. And for those who may think it’s a wireless issue, it happens whether or not my iPhone 11 Plus is on WiFi or LTE/5G and both cameras have “Great” signal. I’m continuing to lose hope in this company over something so ignorant as making their app work like it used to. I never used to have an issue like this when I bought the original Ring Doorbell. As I mentioned in my other review, why would time and finances be spent on making an entirely new app to try and fix the issues with the other Ring app? Why not invest in fixing the one you have? It’s beyond me. I guess I will continue to pray it actually connects to my $500 cameras (Doorbell Pro/Floodlight) if and when something happens and when it doesn’t, putting my family/home in jeopardy- that moment is when I will throw them in the trash and go with another company. I mean, I have a $30 “Wyze” in-home camera that connects EVERY time.
LIVE VIEW WORKS PERFECT!
I almost was about to ditch Ring all together. On the main Ring app, the one thing that had the most issues (which was one of the most important features) is live view. This app fixes it and makes live view literally almost instant for me. RING....PLEASE KEEP THIS SIMPLE APP STABLE AND FAST...NO EXPERIMENTAL CHANGES! Also, there is ONE MAJOR feature lots of users including me need. PLEASE send a notification when Ring devices go offline. Things happen and sometimes I don’t know about it. I’d love to know asap if I need to reset wifi/power upon a rare failure. It does happen time to time and I’ll only know being in the Ring app..... Not ideal.....
Much improves access
I was not happy with the updated App for Ring. When I went to the App Store I found the alternative Rapid Ring App. It’s great! Faster and direct to the Live View in a few simple taps. It also gives the option to link back to the original App if you want to access your history. I recommend that you download Rapid Ring if you want to speed up your Ring service. However, it seems STUPID that it is necessary to use two apps to increase the functionality of the Ring Door Bell. The original APP worked just fine before they began to tinker and upgrade.
No Doubt It Generates a Faster Picture!
However, often the picture is very pixelated & sometimes half of the field is blocked by Green Interference so nothing can be viewed. I’m not certain if it could be the combination of Apps that I have on my Cell. Or if others are experiencing anything similar. The Main Problem I have had & see others are having, is the long delay from the time a Ring Camera detects motion until it finally produces the video so you can see what is happening. Often my Ring Pro Doorbell has been so slow producing video that the person ringing the bell has given up & left! When only motion from deliveries of packages, is what was detected by the Ring Doorbell, the delivery man if back in his truck or Gone!!! This Must Be Fixed By Ring For Them To Ever Gain Ground On The Market For Security Cameras!... They Are Simply Toys To Amuse Or Frustrate Anyone Who Purchases One!... Hopefully the upper management of the company will take heed to the many complaints & rectify this condition! I have over a dozen of their cameras & at this point I wished I had gone a different direction with my security.
I never write reviews but..
I think people are misunderstanding what this app is all about. The actual Ring app is clunky and slow. I work from home in a quiet neighborhood and if I hear any unusual noise outside I get my phone to see what/who it is whether it’s via a phone notification or not. This app screams “get to the point” and after comparison with Ring’s it does exactly what it’s supposed to.. Get you to the live view as fast as possible. Love it so far. UPDATE: After a couple months using this app I switched to it as my default notification app over the Ring app. Game changer 🙌
I would say this is a great response to a growing complaint of the speed of access to live video on the main Ring App. Thanks for listening. As to now having two Apps, I don’t mind. 90% of the time a quick look is all I need. I can do everything else “at a later time”, when seeing what is happening right now is not that critical. Would it be nice for it to be all in one place? Yes. Is is better to now have a solution while the preferred one is being worked on (hopefully)? Definitely.
Ring is superior to the other brands
I have been using Ring products since the being, when they were called DoorBot. I saw Jamie on Shark Tank and was so impressed, I ordered one immediately. Anytime I have had an issue they have responded immediately and I have been more than satisfied with their customer service. I would highly recommend Ring for your video security needs. Sincerely, E. Field
Not Ready for Release
One of the most obvious features is missing: the ability to Live View from the Haptic Touch menu via the app icon. The original Ring app has this, and its way more appropriate for this version. Especially if the whole point is speed. As it stands, to access Live View with this app, one needs to first open the app and then pick a camera. Two steps is actually LESS rapid than the original app, which has a Haptic Touch shortcut! Also, the Ring-specific sounds are all missing. If you use Rapid Ring instead of Ring, all of your motion and ring notifications will become the standard iOS ding sound. No more “Motion at your front door.” That kills the app for me.
Great Companion app for RING
This app helps to pull up cams much quicker than the normal app by doing away with some of the features afforded in the RING app. You lose the ability to zoom in on video and some other features, but it does a great job of answer rings or motion alerts. I would give it a 5 star rating if the ability to reorder the list was added. As it is now the cams that I would use the most are at the bottom of the list and no way to move them to the top. It is nonetheless a welcome addition to the RING System.
Not a great solution
So, I downloaded the app because yeah, the main app can be a little slow to open when I get a notification. Well, this one is usually faster to open, but the quality of the video is somehow way worse. Most of the time I’d have to go to the main app to even tell who was at my door. This app was supposed to make things faster, and it just wasn’t. Plus, when I try to go to the most recent alert it opens rapid ring app... but it’s only for live view/current alert. Again, making everything take longer. Uninstalled because it’s was making me more frustrated than anything. Oh, well.
I just downloaded this app, set it up, including allowing notifications. Then I walked in front of camera to test and got.... Nothing! 2 ring apps and no notifications on either. Walked around and even waved my hand in front of it. Nothing. Finally got far back away and walked towards it and finally got a notification. Clicked on it and.... nothing! Wouldn’t load, but gave a message about not having access to private WiFi??? I’m at home.... I spent a lot of money on these cameras. I’m paying for a subscription for cloud. Have 2 apps on my phone that don’t work. I’m starting to feel like I’ve been scammed. Very disappointed.
Exactly what I wanted
So far my experience with this app has bee great. On top of wing able to access the live feed a little bit faster, you can keep it active for much longer. It does eventually fail connection but sometimes I can go 30-60 minutes before it disconnecting. My only wish is the go live button was bigger. Especially for the iPad version, the icon is just quite small. Hopefully that can be made bigger.
It’s good. It’s fast. But . . .
When I activate voice in the live view I can hear my myself. Everything I say comes back through the audio on my end. In other words it has no automatic voice cancellation. No doubt this makes the system much faster, but it also means that you can’t hear what the person at your door is saying if they respond to what you’re saying while your own voice is still coming back to you.
Wow I was not Expecting this
I thought when it was live view the app would open up with all the cameras all ready on live view at the same time like the first ring app but live view Without having to press a button for each one. Them the worst part is to receive notification From the app you have to select yes. But is all the same Notification tone. I don’t know the different between each camera is unbelievable. You have to select you don’t want Notification and let the old app keep sending you the notifications. It doesn’t even let you select the order you want the camera on the app. Give me the impression they wrote the app in a week and threw it out there. I have axis camera inside the house and I have a app ipCam You can see all 10 cameras at the same time live view in secs the app opens up and if I walk in side the house I can see myself with no lag. This app needs a lot of work 0star.
This app works great for a week then won’t load when I have a notification of movement on my Ring cameras. Nothing fixes it, except to delete the app and reinstall it. This is a huge hassle when you are trying to see what’s going on at your house!! At this time I have downloaded the app because of these “jamming” problems, 4 times. I would probably be better off not to use this Rapid Ring app at all and stuck with the slow load of the basic Ring app. However, when it does work, it’s great! I don’t know why they can’t get the bugs out. Very frustrating.
