According to the FBI, the U.S. had more than 1.7 million burglaries accounting for over $3.9 billion worth of stolen items — or $2,251 per offense — in 2014. And burglars are always getting creative with new tactics for entry. There are numerous news stories about burglars targeting homes by knocking or ringing the doorbell, and if it doesn’t seem like anyone’s home, using the opportunity to break in or mark the home to come back to. If you do answer the door, they’ll make up a story about why they’re there or say they accidentally came to the wrong house. So what if you aren’t home? You might have an alarm system to let you know once a burglary is in progress, but with Ring Video Doorbell system, you can go one step further in preventing the burglary in the first place.
The Ring Video Doorbell uses your home’s Wi-Fi connection to connect to the free app on your smartphone or tablet to let you know when someone rings the bell. When the bell is rung, you’ll get a mobile alert that will connect you to an HD video feed of the entryway so you can communicate with the person at your door. They don’t even have to know that you aren’t home; they’ll be able to talk with you and clearly hear you through two speakers on the doorbell, but don’t have a video feed to you.
We know that not everyone who enters your property will use the doorbell though, so the Ring Video Doorbell system comes equipped with customizable motion detection. Similarly to how you’re alerted if someone rings the bell, you can be alerted when someone enters a certain area of your property and view it through the video feed. You can also purchase an additional battery-operated stick-up camera to place wherever is convenient for you, which you can also access through a mobile device.
Obviously, the system is all about security and convenience for you, the homeowner. So if you want to watch video footage later, you can do that, because the video will upload to a cloud system that you can access anytime. The system’s is also made to fit in with the aesthetics of your home and comes in a variety of looks, including satin nickel, antique brass, polished brass and Venetian bronze. Ring also has a lifetime guarantee and will replace the doorbell for free if it gets stolen.
The system will give you a peace of mind, knowing that you are aware of every person (or thing!) who enters your property, whether it be the postal carrier, neighbor’s dog, or a would-be burglar.
