Technology is always emerging and as it does, there have been some pretty neat advancements in the home that we certainly didn’t have ten or twenty years ago. One of these modern advancements is something that we like to refer to as the mobile peephole. Remember those days when someone knocked on your door and you would peer through that tiny glass hole in the door to see who was there before opening your door? Well, those days are long gone. Most doors these days don’t even have peepholes built into them because so many of the modern and contemporary style doors have glass built into their design, which allows you to make out the person on the other side without having to utilize the peephole. Others simply enjoy their privacy and no longer feel the need for peepholes with the way that technology allows us to be always one step ahead. Who’s knocking on your door? Oh, well your smart phone just let you know it’s the Amazon guy. Friends text or call when they come over, and it’s rare that you have someone knocking on your door when you don’t already expect it.
But what about those times when you really don’t expect it, or you’re not at home to see who is knocking or hanging out on your front porch when you’re away? Well, thanks to modern technology, we have even have a solution to this now, and we’d like to share it with you.
Ring, ring, ring!
Yes, you guessed it – the solution to all your home security needs is called Ring. It is a door bell and camera all at once. Connected to your smart phone technology, every times someone rings your doorbell, you will be alerted. The signal will transfer to your smart phone and you will be able to see exactly who is standing at your front porch, no matter how far away you are. The signal transmits in real time so that you can see the action as it happens and take any appropriate action accordingly. You can even purchase a chime as an extension of the doorbell so that it sounds around the house, even when you don’t have your phone in your pocket. The Ring device also features motion detection so that it is certain to capture any movement around your home. Whether it’s a cat or an unwanted visitor, the Ring Video Doorbell picks up the motion through its camera and sends the video capture straight to your phone so that you can play it back instantly.
The Ring Video Doorbell is the ultimate solution to home security and it’s a pretty nifty little gadget to have around. The program works through applications available through both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. There is also a computer download available for any Windows 10 computer or tablet, giving you an array of different options through which you can use the security device.
