First off, let us wax poetic about the Ring. It lets you watch over your home in 1080HD video, and see, hear and speak to visitors from anywhere, thanks to its built-in microphone and speakers. Ring is also a top-notch motion sensor; the Ring 3 has enhanced motion detection technology. It lets you know when someone rings your door, and you can monitor who’s coming and going. Always a handy feature for parents.
It’s worth noting here, in the interest of full transparency, that there have been security concerns dogging Ring. Whether or not that worries you is, of course, your call.
