Last summer when we spent an amazing two weeks in Turkey and Rome, we knew exactly who was coming and going thanks to our smart video doorbell. Built-in motion sensors detected activity on our property and triggered instant mobile alerts sent to my phone while we were stopped at seaside towns on the Turkey’s southern coast and relaxing in our Roman apartment. With the ability to stream live audio and a 180 degree video feed from our front door, we always knew what was happening outside our home even if we were on the other side of the world.
After awhile the neighborhood kids remembered that we were away and stopped ringing for playdates but getting instant motion alerts helped us know whether we should give a heads’ up to our house sitters to check for a package delivery or throw away literature from the endless stream of landscaping companies who are constantly trying to deforest our yard of its beautiful old trees.
Since it’s common for burglars to knock or ring the doorbell to make sure nobody’s home before breaking in, Ring’s security products can give potential intruders the impression you’re home, even when they’re not. With Father’s Day and summer right around the corner, there’s no better gift for dad than the gift of home security thanks to a Ring Doorbell System.
Ring™ Video Doorbell ($199) provides peace of mind whether you’re traveling, working in the yard, or enjoying an afternoon at the pool. Instant notifications, smart motion detection, live audio and video feed, and access to recorded wide HD video through cloud recording enables homeowners to see and speak with visitors from anywhere in the world using the free iOS or Android apps or through the Windows 10 desktop app, giving the impression that you’re always home.
- Built-in motion sensors trigger instant mobile alerts when they detect movement, giving users the ability to know what’s happening on their property at all times.
- 180-degree field of view and up to 30 feet in range.
- 720p HD wide-angle lens captures every activity detected by the motion sensors.
- Motion detection zones to make sure they only receive important notifications.
- Free cloud storage for 30 days, after which it’s just $3 per month ($30 per year) for 6 months of video and audio recordings.
- Powered by either its 5,200mAh internal rechargeable battery or through existing doorbell wiring.
With so many features and the ability to get Ring up and running quickly, there’s no better device for convenience, monitoring, and security. Not only can you give intruders the impression that you’re home but dads will appreciate being able to see kids coming home from the office. Plus the fact that it comes in one very sleek package will appeal to every dad out there!
