Ring doorbells are some of the most used security devices out there today. We’ve reviewed them in the past and I know dozens of people in my neighborhood who use them. Now, Ring wants to bring this same security to those in multi-unit living complexes with the Ring Door View Cam.
The Ring Door View Cam is a wire-free video doorbell that transforms a traditional door viewer into a smart security device. It is easily installed in place of an existing peephole and does not require drilling or permanent modifications to your home or door.
Ring Door View Cam features motion detection, two-way talk, 1080p HD video, a removable, rechargeable battery, knock detection, privacy zones, and night vision, making it great for any home with a door viewer – especially apartments and rentals.
To use, simply install the Door View Cam in place of the existing door viewer on each side of the door, then pop in the rechargeable battery and removable cover. With that, you will have transformed your old door viewer into a smart security camera.
Designed by the same team who initially reinvented the traditional doorbell, Door View Cam enhances the features of a door viewer we all are familiar with to deliver affordable, effective home security.
Taking the learnings from Ring’s original Ring Video Doorbell, Ring built Door View Cam from the ground up while taking into account the fact that people interact with doors and doorbells at apartment buildings and rentals differently than they do at single-family homes.
The result is a one-of-a-kind security device that enables apartment dwellers to easily add desired security features to their homes in a way they were not able to before.Ring
