The Ring Video Doorbell connects to your home’s Wi-Fi network and streams live audio and video to your smartphone, tablet and Windows 10 device.

The device lets you monitor what happens at your front door from wherever you are, be it around the corner or around the world.

The doorbell’s built-in motion sensors detect movement up to 30 feet and HD video recording stores all recorded footage to the cloud which can be accessed via the Ring app. The Ring Doorbell is quick and easy to set up as it mounts and syncs in minutes and has a built in battery and can also be powered through your existing doorbell wires.

The company’s new Windows 10 app features:

  • Activate Night vision infrared LEDs
  • Quick and easy installation and setup
  • HD Camera support
  • Dual power capabilities
  • Advanced motion detecting sensors
  • Cloud recording
  • Ability to pair with an unlimited number of devices

The company is also working on a Windows Phone app and further improvements to the Windows 10 app, including deleting and sharing functionality.

Screenshot: “This guy was actually creeping up on my porch, and attempting to steal something or do a home invasion.”

-Lane (Rockdale County, GA)

Screenshot: "I'm disabled, and live in a trailer park. The Ring is not just a security device for me, it's an enabling device. It's been the best thing I've added to my home in a long time.

I went on vacation in Tennessee on the day my monthly medications were delivered. I got the UPS Driver who rang my doorbell to take it to a trusted neighbor. This has been a game changer for me. I also feel better knowing that I can grab my iPad by my bed and answer my door when I am not feeling well."

-Allen (Louisville, KY)

Screenshot: "I tell everyone about the sense of security we have. Even with the elaborate security system we already have, I point out that having this is the needed extra step. 

Not only does it allow me to answer my door without being home, but people need to realize how valuable this is. For example, suppose someone were attempting to break into my house. With just my alarm system, the alarm is triggered AFTER someone breaks in. However, it's practically a given that a burglar is going to FIRST go to the door to see if someone is home. Ring allows me to have that added security by being able to answer the door from anywhere, and the person casing the house has no idea that you are not home when you respond using the app."
