We recently reviewed the Ring Video Doorbell (read our review here).
Today (June 19, 2017), Ring, the leader in outdoor home security, today announced the 2nd generation of its Ring Video Doorbell, the most popular video doorbell on the market. The new device features 1080p HD video recording, a removable, rechargeable battery, improved night vision, interchangeable faceplates and a familiar, sleek design. Like its predecessor, the second generation doorbell also features two-way audio and motion detection and can connect to existing wired doorbells. With the new Ring Video Doorbell 2, Ring has yet again innovated and expanded its ‘Ring of Security’ to offer affordable security solutions for every home and further reduce neighborhood crime.
According to Jamie Siminoff, founder and chief inventor of Ring.
“Over 1 million users, who we call ‘Ring Neighbors’, trust our innovative and industry-first security products to reduce neighborhood crime in a meaningful way,”
“With Ring, homeowners have stopped burglars and package thieves, kept an eye on their property when they’re not home, and communicated with family members and visitors at their doorstep. Continuously inventing is core to the execution of our mission ‘to reduce crime in neighborhoods’ and today’s launch of the second generation Ring Video Doorbell is evidence of that.”
The effectiveness of Ring’s security devices is getting noticed. As one Florida police officer said:
“Law enforcement is relying more and more on video evidence to help increase our rate of closure on theft and burglary offenses. The Ring Video Doorbell is a simple but effective tool in this endeavor, providing us with hard evidence and the homeowner with solid peace of mind.”
The Ring Video Doorbell 2 ($199) is available today in the more than 15,000 U.S. retail locations Ring devices are sold in, including Best Buy and Home Depot, as well as at ring.com.
