The Ring Video Doorbell now supports Windows 10 with new app

The Ring Video Doorbell has become a popular way to keep homes safer by adding a connected camera to the standard doorbell. Now the company has launched an official Ring Video Doorbell app for Windows 10 PC users so they can see what's going on outside their house.

The Ring Video Doorbell itself costs $199. Here's a quick description:

" It features an HD camera with night vision, providing a clear view from your front door, day and night. The Ring Doorbell installs easily in minutes, with no professional help or additional tools required. A built-in rechargeable battery lets you install the doorbell anywhere, or connect it to existing doorbell wiring. Motion-triggered alerts sent via the free Ring app notify you of arriving guests and deliveries.

The Ring Video Doorbell app for Windows 10 allows users to monitor several different doorbell cameras via Wi-Fi. Motion sensors trigger the cameras to record, and videos from the camera can be saved to a cloud server for access at any time. Users can even chat with anyone at the door via the built-in microphone and speakers.

This is just the first version of the app, and the description indicates a version optimized for Windows 10 Mobile will be released in the future.

Thanks to Guy for the tip!

  • Hopefully more companies will decide to support Windows 10 like this.
  • Looks like uwp is paying off as long as they follow through with mobile.
  • This is where running legacy apps on mobile would pay off...
  • Yes, this is pretty great. It would be ridiculous on my apartment door inside a secure building, but...maybe? :) Posted from this here device.
  • Haha didn't expect that
  • Nice!
  • Someone asked me about this app for WP so that's good news.
  • It's still not out on mobile.
  • Not yet, no, but the last line of the artcle indicates a Mobile vrsion will be coming.
  • Yes, it is. I have it on my phone. It's in the Windows 10 Mobile store. Not available for Win 8 mobile.
  • @Mark Morales:
    Does it call you and tell you you're going to be dead a week from now?
  • Phil is testing this on Android Central. If you're curious, he just posted an article today on the setup.
  • I was never worried about Win 10 support, everyone will support it. It's the Mobile part of it that bothers me.
  • I think the install base of Windows is finally being leveraged correctly to pull developers in. It's a shame this didn't start with 8, but I guess it is better late than never.
  • No offense, but that owner with the screenshot has over $1000 in door bells... Wow. #firstworldsolutions
  • $660 actually. The Rings are $200 a piece and the chimes are $30.
  • I posted this yesterday on the WW live chat. They didn't know it was already out.
  • Use holograms to show visitor on Hololens...
  • That would be amanzing!
  • Nice
  • Good they advertise enough on windows weekly
