The RING Doorbell - more Benefits

By

The Smart Doorbell - RING has many values!   I like it as I work from home, and when someone cannot read -- NO Solicitors and rings anyway, I can see who is at the door, and don't have to stop working.     One time it gave me a notification that there was suspicious activity close to my front door, and the camera showed the activity.   (Trash day we have many scavengers that like to see what is on the curb before the trash guys arrive.)

 

This past week, one night after dinner my phone went off - giving me a notification.   I did not hear the actual doorbell, so went to the door.  No one was there.    Went back to my phone, and there was an alert from a near-by neighborhood stating a homeowner was alerting other homeowners that there was a thief rifling through mailboxes in the area.  Good information to have!

 

I have a locked cluster mailbox in my neighborhood, but thought this was another great feature that I had no idea existed.

 

Also, had a closing last month where the homeowner had not only had a RING doorbell but the NEST thermostat, and the homeowner needs to cancel and/or remove their email to the new homeowner can have access.   This notice is now on my checklist for closing!

Hi Joan-We love our Ring doorbell!  Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents you'll appreciate this. At Christmas I got a UPS alert that said a package was delivered. But there was no package. I looked at video from my Ring and no one had come to deliver a package or swipe one. After calling UPS, my driver called and said he thinks his holiday assistant may have dropped it off at my neighbors. 

I called my neighbor and yes, the temporary UPS person had misdelivered it.

Elizabeth, it is really good for deliveries especially when you are not home.  I call my neighbors and ask them to take the package to their home.

Nina Hollander when I was looking for a home, that was something I wanted, a main floor office, but like it upstairs.  Just cannot see the front door easy!

Debe Maxwell, CRS I feel the same way, and usually is a neighbor that can either hide a package, or take it home with them until I get home.   I love mine too!

Kathy Streib that is a very good reason to have the RING doorbell, just one good reason, and there are many.
