I would like to see Ring add facial recognition to its camera software for the purpose of improving neighborhood security and safety, and to aid law enforcement.
As an opt-in service, customers should be able to subscribe to the new Ring Neighbors Public Safety “Facial Recognition and Alerting Service”. As an extension to a customer’s ability to post videos to Ring Neighborhood and share videos with law enforcement, facial recogniction software should then be used to help protect subscribers in the event their cameras identify a person matching the description of a suspicious individual posted by themself or other Ring Neighbors subscribers. When a match is found, Ring should alert the homeowner and alert law enforcement.
This will provide near-realtime identification of suspects across neighborhoods around the U.S. and the world to help keep communities safe, all through automation that exists today.
