Ring is the Wi-Fi enabled doorbell that lets you answer the door even when you’re not home

In 2012, we saw the promise of a Wi-Fi connected home monitoring system in Doorbot. The promise fell short and left a few unhappy first generation adopters. However, the company rebranded and today the product is Ring.
