Recently, we published a review of one of the hottest new techie gadgets for you home, the Wemo switch. Incase you missed the article, Wemo is an easily adaptable plug that works from your internet service to allow you to remotely control certain appliances and lighting in your home from your smartphone or tablet. Today, we continue a look at another modern marvel in smart home technology, the Ring Video Doorbell.


Without investing a wad of cash on video cameras that have to be monitored and reviewed from dedicated computers, you can now see activity outside your front door, whether you're in the kitchen, or at the office, vacation, or grocery shopping. The Ring Video Doorbell is a newer technology that incorporates a 1,280-by-720-pixel camera with a 180-degree field of view and a motion sensor. A great concept, The Ring Video Doorbell has connectivity to your mobile device to allow you to completely control the device, and get notifications of someone at your door, or motion within the range of the motion sensor with a phone call. When the Ring Doorbell button is pressed, your smartphone will ring and notify you that someone is at the door. Tapping the notification opens a live feed on your mobile device that lets you see who is there and gives you the option of accepting or denying the call. If you accept the call you can use the microphone icon to initiate a two-way conversation with the caller. No more missing the UPS man, or wondering what kind of animal is eating your flowers! The Ring Video Doorbell is available on Amazon, and many big box retailers.
