DoorBot Announces Company Rebranding and New, Enhanced Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell

Ring™ Video Doorbell Brings Unprecedented Convenience, Monitoring, and Security to the Home

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwired - September 29, 2014) - DoorBot, the company who first introduced the Wi-Fi enabled video doorbell that streams live video and audio of a home's front doorstep directly to a smartphone or tablet, today announces its latest device, the Ring™ Video Doorbell. This is the first product released under the company's new brand, Ring.

The Ring Video Doorbell was built from the ground up to provide consumers with unprecedented convenience, monitoring, and security for their homes. Ring provides convenience by notifying homeowners of any visitors while also allowing them to communicate with arriving guests through their mobile device. According to data from The Federal Bureau of Investigation-in The United States alone-over 1 million home burglaries occur during daytime hours when homes are unoccupied. Ring provides the appearance of being home, deterring potential burglars by empowering consumers to protect their home from anywhere.

"With our busy professional and personal lives, many people are forced to be away from their most valuable asset-their homes-more than ever," said James Siminoff, founder and inventor of the Ring Video Doorbell. "For the first time, the Ring Video Doorbell gives you the ability to be always home, regardless of where you are. Whether it is a wanted visitor, or someone less invited, with Ring you are Always Home."

The Ring Video Doorbell not only communicates with visitors through a smartphone or tablet, but also includes motion-triggered mobile notifications, an HD camera with night vision, and cloud recording which will capture all activity from the front of the home. Ring owners can view the captured footage through their mobile device via the free Ring app.

The Ring™ Video Doorbell is currently available for pre-order for $199 at
