One of our favorite gift ideas is the Ring Doorbell fromHammacher Schlemmer . The Ring Doorbell is a video doorbell that is so easy to install, so you can start using it right away. It's the gift of security and is a great idea for anyone to have. The Ring Doorbell is wireless, and connects to your existing doorbell. It runs on your wifi at home and also on an app that you download to your smartphone, tablet, and/or computer.
The Ring Doorbell from Hammacher Schlemmer, features two-way talk, a motion detection camera, and recording capabilities. The kit comes with everything you need for the installation...(minus a power drill that we needed to use as well).
First, disconnect your old doorbell, and replace it with your new Ring Doorbell back plate. Charge the doorbell with the included USB chord. Place the Ring unit on the back plate you installed, and screw it in to lock it in place. Download the APP, and you're good to go!
You can choose your settings with how far you want the motion detection to go. At first, we were getting a notification every time a car drove by, but change your settings and it can just alert you when theres someone in your yard. As soon as it senses movement, it will stat recording and notify you of movement in your yard. You could be across the country and still see whats going on back home.
You will hear all that's going on outside, and you can even talk through the app and doorbell to your visitors. Ring makes it so simple to keep your home nice and secure. Ring also has a replacement guarantee. If your doorbell gets stolen, the'll replace it for free.
