Ever wanted to know what happens when someone knocks on your door and discovers you are not home? Most law abiding citizens who come to your door will just walk away when there is no response from homeowners and come back another time. There are others who will use that knowledge in more sinister ways. So what if you could talk with whomever is at your day from wherever you are. A Smart Ring and the Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell solves each of this problem for you (no time travel, holographic image technology or other equally difficult technology methods are required).
What does the Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell actually do?
This doorbell allows you to see, hear and speak to anyone from your smartphone, tablet or PC. You will get instant alerts when visitors press your doorbell or trigger the built-in motion sensors. It’s even got infrared night vision – now that’s impressive!
Ring keeps your home secure and your family safe by protecting you against intruders, burglars, package thieves and any other unwanted guests. Ring makes sure you never miss a visitor. “Because with Ring, you’re always home” as the company says.
The doorbell works with noise cancellation so if you are at a party, in the gym or any other noisy environment you don’t need to worry that the two way radio will give any indication that you are not actually at home.

Here is what the Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell looks like:
Let us clarify that the Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell is NOT a Smart Ring. The similarity in naming is just a coincidence HOWEVER your Smart Ring (such as the one offered by Ringly) can be set to alert you of anyone at your door via the RING app.
Ringly allows you to get the alerts you want from the apps that are most important to you. Ringly syncs with over 100 apps on iOS and Android, but only the apps installed on your phone will show up in the Ringly app. In this case you would install the RING app on your Ringly app to allow you to get alerts when someone is at your door.
Here is what the alert might look like if you have the Ringly Smart Ring:
Phone on silent because you are in a meeting? No worries. Just set your app to alert your Smart Ring when someone is at your door. It will alert you that someone is standing at your or is near your door. Out walking with a friend with you phone tucked away? No problem. Your Smart Ring can alert you then too. You will of course need to have your smart phone nearby to be able to take the call coming through from your door but your Smart Ring is a reliable, convenient and discrete way to be alerted in the first instance.
