Feeling safe and secure in our homes is essential to our peace of mind, unfortunately in our day and age, that feeling of security is slipping away. Break-ins, package thefts, vandalism, loitering, etc. are all too common and difficult to deter.
Amazon recently purchased a company who is trying to solve this problem and provide you with the peace of mind you so deserve. ring is security company that makes video doorbells, cameras, security systems, and related accessories, all of which can be controlled and monitored through any device with the ring app.
Ring – Security Anywhere You Need It
Yes, VIDEO DOORBELLS.
Their Video Doorbell allows you to see and communicate with whoever is as your door. With the motion sensor, you are immediately alerted when there is activity in front of the doorbell, allowing you to see who (or sometimes what) is lurking at your front door, even when you’re not home!
On its site, ring has a series of customer stories that demonstrate the different ways having such a security system can help protect you as well as have some fun friends and family.

- Two-way audio
- Wide-angle HD video
- Wi-Fi Compatible
- Mobile Access
- Lifetime Purchase Protection
- Rechargeable battery or connect to existing wiring for power source
- Lifetime purchase protection (they’ll send you anew one if it gets stolen!)
- It works with Alexa (“Hey Alexa! Show me who’s at the door?”)
- According to several reviews, Great Customer Service (Always a plus in my book)
