How did you first hear about Ring?
A friend of mine shared some odd looking animal in front of the house. Then I remember I had watched the Doorbot pitch at Shark Tank.
How long have you been a Ring neighbor?
Since Black Friday 2018 when I got a great deal on Ring Spotlight Cam Batteries and Ring Alarm and realizing the I would pay less for the equipment and Ring Protect Plus than my current alarm renewal.
How many Ring devices do you have?
2 Spotlight Cam Battery, Ring Doorbell Pro and Ring Alarm (with First-Alert smoke/COs).
Which Ring device is your favorite and why?
Ring Alarm. I feel it’s as good or even better than all the traditional systems.
On a scale of 1-10, how “smart” is your home?
8. I would love all devices to be interconnected with HomeKit, Google, or Alexa, and need a few more dimmers/switches.
What type of smart phone and router do you use with your Ring devices?
- I have a router running open source code, as well as a mix of WiFi access points from different brands. I believe in best of breed. I am a WiFi engiNERD…
Have you had any positive, and/or funny Ring stories? If so, what happened?
We always sign up for courtesy Police checks when we go on vacation. I thought they would simply do a drive-by check. Was shocked when I saw the police officer come to the front door and rear doors and check to make sure they were locked. He even placed a package that had just arrived somewhere that would not be seen from the street.
What is your favorite feature about your Ring device?
Telling Alexa “I’m leaving” which arms the system.
And for a fun question: What is your favorite dessert?
