It looks as though Amazon is feeling a bit of pressure when it comes to popular lineup of Video Doorbells produced by its Ring subsidiary. The Ring Video Doorbell, which was last updated in 2020, is priced at $99.99. While that may be cheap for a device from Ring, there are competitors out there that are far cheaper. To get to an even lower price point, Ring today announced the Video Doorbell Wired. This is an all-new device with a slimmer profile, while retaining most of the features of its more expensive siblings. The biggest omission, however, is that this model doesn't have a battery. The lack of a battery accounts for most of the cost savings that you'll find with the Video... Read more...

Or you can rely on the removable battery pack for power, which will last between 6 months to 12 months per charge depending on the number of alerts you receive per day. It can be easily removed and recharged via an included microUSB cable. With regards to specifications,... Read more...
Ring has been in the news a lot lately over lapses in security with its camera products. After thousands of accounts got hacked, Ring took the brunt of the backlash, but explained that user credentials were most likely obtained 1) from unrelated account hijacks and 2) because customers were using the same login credentials across multiple online accounts. Ring made changes to its security regimen and ensured that new customers enabled two-factor authentication to further lockdown accounts. But now, Ring is under fire again with respect to its Android app. According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the Android version of Ring's app is filled with third-party trackers...

Amazon announced today that it has completed its purchase of video doorbell and security camera maker Ring.

"The entire Ring team is excited to continue working hard to create products and services that bring real benefits to people’s lives and build safer communities for all our neighbors.” "We will continue to...
