Ring.com in Your Neighborhood
At Ring, our mission is to reduce crime in neighborhoods. By making smart security devices that are easy to use, we help families around the world stop crime in its tracks.
We strive to improve our products everyday, so that all our Ring Neighbors can get superior home security and peace of mind at their fingertips. Today, we’re proud to announce a partnership that is sure to take your home security to the next level.
We’ve listened to all your requests, and we’re happy to announce that select Ring Video Doorbells and Security Cameras now work with Amazon Alexa!
If you have an Amazon Echo Show, you can now instantly access your Ring device by simply using your voice!
The Ring Skill connects Ring Video Doorbell 2, Video Doorbell Elite, Video Doorbell Pro and Floodlight Cam to your Echo Show. You can use Alexa to start a new video or join an existing one, but there is currently no support for two-way talk.
The original Ring Video Doorbell and Stick Up Cam are not fully supported at this time. We’re currently working on adding full support for all Ring devices, so stay tuned for updates!
Alexa also works with Shared Users, so anyone connected to your Ring can also use Alexa to view activity.
Using Alexa to access your Ring is simple. By saying “Alexa, show my front door,” you’ll instantly get a live video feed of activity at your home. To stop viewing the feed, simply say “Alexa, hide my front door.” Note that “front door” is used here as an example, and this should be replaced with whatever name you used to label your Ring device (e.g. “backyard,” “side door,” “garage,” etc.).
By working with Alexa, Ring is making home security even simpler and more convenient. Now, you not only have the power of home security at your fingertips, you can also have it at the sound of your voice.

Kids always seem to have the right way of looking at things. We can always depend on them to put everything in a new perspective.
Seven-year-old Wyatt Warner rode his mini-bike to a friend’s house in Utah. As he pulled up to his buddy’s porch, he saw an American flag waving in the wind. What happened next has taken the internet by storm, and it’s brought together Americans from all walks of life.
Let’s see what Wyatt does when he thinks no one’s looking:
Wyatt’s innocent recital of the Pledge of Allegiance quickly made its rounds on the internet. National news stations picked up the footage from his friend’s Ring Video Doorbell, and millions of people have now seen Wyatt’s patriotic pledge.
“I thought about all the people that died for our country,” Wyatt said. “I just wanted to support our Americans.”
Wyatt’s impromptu pledge reminds us all about what the flag stands for and what it really means to be an American.
Fresh off Memorial Day Weekend, Wyatt is a refreshing reminder that we’re all united under the flag. With a little inspiration from this young patriot, we can all work together to achieve a common goal: To be one nation indivisible.
Thanks, Wyatt, for showing us all what it means to be a patriot!
Last year’s Super Bowl Sunday was a record-setting day for Ring homes. As friends and family came together to celebrate the Big Game, Ring Notifications hit an all-time high, spiking by as much as 25% over a typical Sunday afternoon.
This year was no different. As millions of us gathered around the tube to watch one of the greatest football games ever, Ring homes were kept busy with countless doorbell dings and motion alerts. Let’s see how the data stacks up to your Super Bowl party.
Football fans got started early this Sunday. The graph above shows the number of doorbell dings during Super Bowl Sunday compared to a typical Sunday. As you can see, partygoers started showing up about three hours before game-time, most likely to snag the best seat available and to get a quick bite to eat before kickoff.
The biggest spike in traffic came about 30 minutes before the start of game, as Ring homes saw as much as a 45% increase in doorbell dings over a normal Sunday. This spike continued until early in the first quarter, when the last of the latecomers finally showed up.
This next graph shows us all of the motion alerts that took place during the Big Game. Whereas the previous graph let us see when the partygoers showed up, this graph will also show us when they left.
As expected, the biggest spike in traffic was during the Halftime Show. As Lady Gaga was performing for millions of football fans, many of us were leaving our parties to pick up some extra party favors or going out back to fire up the grill. When the third quarter started, traffic spiked again, as we were all trying to get back to our parties in hopes of watching the second half.
Unfortunately, the data is unable to show us how many unlucky fans left early and weren’t able to watch Tom Brady and the Patriots’ comeback. It does show, however, that as soon as James White scored the game-winning touchdown, people left their parties in droves, too much in a hurry (or maybe just disappointed) to enjoy the trophy ceremony.
Tom Brady and the Patriots weren’t the only ones breaking records on Sunday. We all broke a record! This past Sunday was the most traffic we’ve ever seen on Ring devices, and the 40% spike in doorbell dings was the highest so far.
It’s great to see that more and more people are trusting their home security to Ring, and we can’t wait to see how big the numbers are for next year’s Super Bowl parties.
As always, we’d love to see all of the festivities that your Ring captured during the Big Game, so be sure to share your favorite videos with firstname.lastname@example.org. If we end up using your video, we’ll give you a free year of Cloud Video Recording!
