What is a video doorbell?

Ring's range of video doorbells integrate a camera and doorbell. When someone presses the doorbell or motion is detected outside your door it triggers a short recording that can be viewed on your phone. Through the phone app you can remotely answer the door, which is ideal if you want to tell the postman to try next door, but it also has security benefits.

All Ring Doorbell kit is protected by a two-year parts guarantee and a lifetime theft protection - if someone runs off with your doorbell Ring will replace it free of charge, and the video of them doing so will be safely stored in the cloud.
