What is Ring Chime Pro (2nd Generation)?

Like the original Chime Pro, the second generation Chime Pro extends wifi coverage throughout your house specifically for Ring doorbells and cameras. Simply plug it into a wall socket, connect it through the Ring app, and you'll be able to extend your wifi signal and get real-time Ring device notifications anywhere in your home, even if you're not near your phone.
What's the difference between this Chime Pro and the previous generation Chime Pro?

What's the difference between the Chime Pro (2nd Generation) and the Chime (2nd Generation)?

A Chime Pro is a great solution if you want to expand and improve coverage only to your Ring devices.
