This video doorbell lets homeowners check on the front door from their phones
Ring is the name of the home security device company that's switched up the traditional doorbell.
Inventor and Ring founder Jamie Siminoff is leading the market for video doorbells, explains Technobyte presenter Aki Anastasiou.
The innovative device puts the power of home security in the hands of homeowners.
The doorbell is linked to an app and integrates the cellphone camera so that residents can watch over their homes on video.
Homeowners see, hear and speak to visitors from anywhere, even if they are not home.
With instant mobile alerts and two-way talk, you can answer the door from your smartphone, tablet and PC.
