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.
