Ring discusses the smart home, choosing IoT standards, and its mission to reduce crime

IoT News caught up with Ring at IFA Berlin to discuss the smart home, how it chooses what standards to use, and its mission to reduce crime. A vast number of Ring customers likely picked up a video doorbell primarily for uses such as avoiding missed packages. The ability to be almost anywhere in the world and be able to speak to a delivery driver at your door still feels futuristic even several years later. While a large number of people consider video doorbells a convenience, Ring wants to make clear it’s very much focused on making people's homes as secure as possible. Ring's ability to act like a ‘peephole’ to see who’s at the door without having to open it is great for avoiding door-to-door salesman, but it's even more welcome to help ensure your household and its members are kept safe. In an interview during IFA Berlin, Ring European Product Director Dave Ward said: "Our mission is about reducing crime and making neighbourhoods safer."
