It Would Be Dumb Not To Buy This Awesome Smart Doorbell

One of the coolest house upgrades I’ve seen in a very long time is the Ring Video Doorbell. It’s an Internet-enabled doorbell that allows users to see and speak with visitors at their door through smartphones and tablets from anywhere, whether you’re on the couch or halfway around the world.

As the Editor of DailyTekk I’ve seen a lot of “connected” doorbell concepts. This is the first one that makes me truly excited about the idea. Here’s what James Siminoff, CEO and Chief Inventor, says sets Ring apart from the competition:

The Ring Video Doorbell is the only battery-operated, Wi-Fi-enabled, HD video doorbell on the market today. Ring’s built-in 180° motion sensors immediately detect activity and trigger instant mobile alerts, giving homeowners the ability to know what’s happening on their property and answer the door, even when they are not home. The cloud recording feature enables users to capture video footage of visitors and even potential intruders. The Ring Video Doorbell makes daily life more comfortable as users never have to interrupt time with family and friends to talk to salespeople, never need to worry about missing a delivery, and can feel better about leaving their house unattended. Now, with the new Ring Chime, a Wi-Fi speaker that sounds within the home when the Ring Doorbell is pressed, we are able to provide a comprehensive, wireless solution for all homeowners; especially the more than 30% of U.S. homeowners that don’t have working doorbells.

If you need a few more reasons to like Ring, here they are:

  • Ring customers frequently send in videos of strangers at their door and note they’re surprised at how many visits they get on a daily basis…
  • Recordings of packages being stolen off their doorstep
  • Recordings of strangers lurking at their door for extended periods of time…
  • Recordings of potential “knock-knock” burglars who like to make sure nobody’s home before breaking in…

What’s nice about these types of recordings is that the footage can be shared with community members and/or law enforcement officials to help identify suspects and start larger conversations around best safety practices.

James says he is surprised at how often users open the app to interact with it—view recordings or download footage—even when nobody is at the doorbell.


Basically, the Ring Video Doorbell is all about making you feel like you’re home even when you’re not—and projecting that feeling to the outside world.
