"The Biggest Name in Doorbell Cameras"
The Ring Doorbell Camera security system was recently acquired by Amazon. They currently offer doorbell cameras and exterior security lighting cameras. And according to their website product page, Ring will soon be adding indoor security and environmental protection products to their lineup as well. This is great news based on how popular their current products have become.
The Ring Doorbell camera system is Wi-Fi connected and they offer the option to install it as a battery-powered system, or to hardwire it. Either way, their mobile app and video will walk you through the 5- to 15-minute (depending on the equipment you choose) installation process. You can also use their app to control your Ring device.
Unfortunately, Ring doesn't currently, nor does it appear to be adding any type of home automation features, but it is compatible with many third-party smart home services. Although Ring doesn't offer professional monitoring services, they do offer live streaming when hardwired to your existing doorbells power supply. Ring Live View does not work when using the internal battery. Since most users prefer to use the Ring internal battery, paying for one of the Ring video recording packages is the ideal option.
