Video doorbells from Ring

Issue 1 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Ring has a number of video doorbells available in South Africa. These devices run off batteries or power, and enable users to answer their doors from anywhere in the world through an internet connection.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro.

The Video Doorbell Pro is a hardwired device that comes standard with 1080p HD video with a 160-degree field of view as well as two-way audio to allow you to see and speak to the person at your door. It uses Amazon’s cloud service to store video for future reference. The Pro is also equipped with customisable motion sensors that will alert the user if someone is in the vicinity of the door, even if they don’t press the buzzer. For visitors after dark, the Pro also sports infrared vision.

While video is stored in the cloud, users can also watch a live view of their entrances. Ring provides apps for iOS and Android mobile devices as well as Apple and Windows 10 systems. It also comes with four interchangeable faceplates to ensure the doorbell fits in with your décor.

A less costly model, the Video Doorbell 2, is also available, which can be hardwired or run off the included battery. An extra rechargeable battery pack is included to ensure power is not an issue. It also alerts users via their mobile devices when someone is at the door, offering video and two-way audio. Adjustable motion detection zones are available to ensure users cover the areas they choose.
