It was 39.99 for the year after the increase. Our first year was 10 dollars cheaper.

Hi,
Your going to have to pay a monthly or yearly subscription in order to
use many of the desireable features.

It will technically work with no subscription, but many of the
features you may want are only available if you have a subscription.
For instace, being able to browse certain past date clips, or using
the A Lady greeting feature.

There are some other video door bells that may not require a
subscription as well but the price for the subscription is normal.

Also if you go on to Youtube and search for
Ring doorbell
Nest Hello doorbell
Wemo doorbell
you will find tons of in depth reviews that are excellent to watch
except they don't of course cover the accessibility or lack there of
in terms of the apps.

Also many providers including Ring and Nest/Google will give you a 30
day trial of the subscription when you first connect the device to the
cloud.

Best,
Mika

Re: Need reccomendationon door bell intercome

Hi,
I just orderd and got a Ring doorbell, and hoping to get it installed
in the next few days.

I was also considering:

Google Nest Hello:
Don't like the idea migrating all to the Google Home app, and I've had
some glitches trying to save clips from a Google Nest Hub Max but it
might be because I'm in a beta.

Apple Home Kit Doorbell:
There are also home kit door bells from Belkin Wemo and Logitek.
However, you can only view the footage and clips from Apple devices.

I am hoping with the Ring since it has a web view say for instance I
could call Aira and have them view the historical clips with me.

I'm really excited to start playing around with the ring!

Best,
Mika

Re: Looking for a best quality headset-microphone combination for laptop

Marie Nelson
 

I can't attest to this being the very best quality, however I use the Logitech H800 almost exclusively. It is on the ear, comfortable, lightweight and has good sound. The microphone noise cancelling is quite good and it is a dream for Zoom calls. In addition, it won't break the bank on cost and it has been very reliable.
It connects via a USB dongle and since it is not BT, there is no lag time that I have ever noticed. I like it so much, I purchased a second so I could have a backup in reserve.

Hi,

Does anyone know of a best quality over-the-ear headset with microphone that can be used for making recordings, not just for speech recognition? I don't want my voice to sound tini. About how much would it cost?

Thanks for any input,

Recording interrupted

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I'm using an iPhone XR with IOS 15 plus. I was making a recording with the Hokusai app when it was interrupted by another app taking over. Is there a way to prevent this, or would it help if I upgrade the iPhone and IOS 16 plus? If so, how?

Thanks for any input,

Hi all,



Here's hoping that this is not too far off topic. And, so
far, Gene hasn't killed any one yet. Uhh. As far as I
know.



For years now, I have not been able to use Free Directory
Assistance for phone numbers in my home town of Nacogdoches,
Texas. If you are wondering how to pronounce Nacogdoches,
most screen readers get it right when it is spelled like
this: Nacogdoechus.



I am calling 800.373.3411 which works reasonablely well with
a well known city like Dallas or Houston. But, for years
now, it doesn't recognize my home town. This is quite a
bummer since I need to be able to find numbers here in
Nacogdoches.



I have tried spelling Nacogdoches. I have tried using just
the zip code. No joy.



Any one have any ideas?



Damn, I miss the good old days when you got a really polite
lady who was happy to do a little digging around foryou.

Re: sleepy time

When describing a problem, it is important to provide details.  You would get much better and faster help in many cases.  Now that we know that the screen being locked is the problem, people can address that.

The message I sent may give you the information you need.
