I’ve just been sent one of those Ring™ doorbells to try out.
Not heard about it yet?
Basically it’s a ‘smart’ doorbell with an in-built wide angled HD video camera, which is activated by a motion detector. When triggered by a caller a video is sent to your smartphone and what’s more you can then speak to them, which is rather handy if you’re not at home and expecting a delivery!
Clearly there are some very useful home security advantages with this piece of kit too, because you’ll be able to speak to someone at the door without even having to physically open it and you know I always say that should acknowledge a call at the door!
I haven’t had the opportunity to install mine just yet, but this weekend looks promising, so watch out for my assessment coming soon on these pages.
