The Ring Video Doorbell lets you answer the door from anywhere with your smartphone. Connects to your Wi-Fi network and works with iOS and Android. Essentially, Ring lets you monitor every corner of your property. With a HD Video Doorbell at your door and Stick Up Cams around the house, you can create a Ring of Security around your entire home.

Startup Story: If not for my wife, the Ring Video Doorbell would not exist. Inventors come up with a lot of bad ideas and she has heard them all. One night I shared my idea for reinventing the doorbell. She loved it! Not just for the obvious convenience but for the security of now being able to safely answer the door from anywhere. She said “This is like caller ID for the front door”
