Ring Video Doorbell is the flagship product of Ring LLC. It consists of a smart doorbell that has a high-definition camera, a motion sensor, and a microphone and speaker for two-way audio communication. Ring Video Doorbell integrates with the Neighbors app. It lets users see real-time video from the camera, receive notifications when the doorbell is rung, and communicate with visitors at the door through the integrated speaker and microphone. Ring Video Doorbell can work as a surveillance camera. It automatically triggers recordings when rung or when the motion sensors are activated.
A second-generation model, called the Ring Doorbell 2 was released in 2017. This one has updated hardware and a 1080p camera. It also has enhanced low-light performance and does not rely only on Wi-Fi in comparison to the original model. Ring Doorbell Pro interoperates with Amazon Alexa for playing prerecorded greetings to visitors and lets visitors leave a message. An accessory named ‘Ring Chime’ is plugged into the power outlet for playing the doorbell’s chime.
