Gadget of the Month: Ring Video Doorbell


The world is becoming increasingly dangerous. We’ve all heard stories of robberies and home invasions, and while it’s extremely unlikely this will happen to you, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

That’s why we’re profiling the Ring Video Doorbell. I purchased the Ring because my wife works alone from home and is often hesitant to answer the door. With the video doorbell she can answer the door, see who’s there, and speak to the visitor from her mobile phone without indicating whether she’s in the house, and decide whether or not she feels comfortable opening the door.

The Ring is also a convenience device. If you are going on vacation but are worried about the security of your home the Ring can handle that too. It has a built in motion detector that will wake the camera and alert you whenever the motion sensors are activated. So if someone is on your property, the camera will pick it up and alert you right away.

All the footage is saved in the cloud. If you experience a break-in or you want to see what happened while you were away you can do that too.

The Ring is $199 and can be installed within minutes without additional tools or professional help. So if you’re concerned about the security of your home or would like a convenient, safe way to answer the door you can purchase the Ring at, or
