I own a Ring doorbell that has a built-in video camera that (1.) allows me to see who is at my door and/or on the walkway leading to the door as well as (2.) recording all visitors’ actions in the cloud where the videos can be later reviewed by me and I can even forward the videos to by law enforcement officers, if necessary. I also have a Ring camera in the garage where it keeps an eye on my sports car and other possessions, as well as monitoring access to the second entrance into my home.
I purchased the Ring doorbell a few months ago because I thought it would improve my home’s security by helping to identify would-be burglars as well as “porch pirates” who steal FedEx or UPS or Amazon packages from the front door. Now it looks like my belief was wrong. In fact, the Ring devices are spy devices that save video records of ME, my family members, and my visitors and make the videos available to Ring, a division of Amazon. Instead of improving home security, Ring REDUCED my security.
