The humble doorbell has been upgraded to a sophisticated home security system.

It’s useful to have so much of the stuff we need delivered to the front door but it can be inconvenient waiting in for it – or struggling to the door if you have impaired mobility. There’s also the question of security and how you can be sure about who’s at the door before you open it.

The Ring Video Doorbell solves many of these issues, enabling you to see, hear and speak to anyone at the door from a smartphone, tablet or computer. This enables you to properly identify people before opening up or perhaps asking them to wait a moment if you need that bit more time to get to the door.

Answering the door

You’ll get instant alerts the moment visitors press your doorbell or trigger the built-in motion sensors – and since you can now answer your door from anywhere, if you happen to be out and about, you could also ask for your delivery to be left in the porch or with a trusted neighbour. This is all made possible by connecting the doorbell with the free Ring app.

Motion sensors also switch on the HD camera which gives a 180° view (even in the dark with infrared night vision) – and the two-way talk feature includes noise cancellation for clearer audio reception.

Installation is simple. The Ring Video Doorbell has a built-in rechargeable battery or can be connected to existing doorbell wiring for a constant charge.
