Ring has launched its new Ring Door View Cam. A wire-free video doorbell that transforms an existing, traditional peephole into a smart security device, Ring Door View Cam is easily installed in place of the existing, compatible 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 perfect for any home with an existing, compatible peephole – especially flats and rentals. To install, simply remove the existing peephole, install the Door View Cam in its place on each side of the door, pop in the rechargeable battery and the removable cover, and you will have transformed your old peephole into a smart security camera.

Designed by the same team who initially reinvented the traditional doorbell, Door View Cam enhances the features of a peephole 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 in a block of flats and rentals differently than they do at detached and semi-detached housing. The result is a one-of-a-kind security device that enables flat dwellers to easily add desired security features to their homes in a way they were not able to before.

Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and Chief Inventor, said: “As we continue on our mission of reducing crime in neighbourhoods, we want everyone with a front door to have the ability to protect their property and prevent crime from taking place. We’ve heard from countless customers over the years who want to secure their front door with a Ring Doorbell but are not able to install one of our existing doorbells. With the addition of Door View Cam, we are unlocking peace of mind for every customer.”
