​Ring Video Doorbell 2 review: A fun IoT device to boost your security | ZDNet

The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is an Internet of Things (IoT) device that allows you to see who is at the door — whether you’re at home or not — and talk to them via your smartphone, tablet or PC. The idea is that you can keep an eye on legitimate visitors and anyone else who might be visiting your front door.

The device can stream live video to your smartphone when someone rings the bell, or when it detects motion nearby. It can also record video for you to view later, or give you a live stream if you just want to see what’s happening outside your home. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 costs £179 (inc. VAT, or $199 in the US).

The doorbell is quite bulky, measuring 12.83cm by 6.35cm by 2.74cm (5.1 x 2.5 x 1.1 inches).
