The smart home field will only advance further. The Jetsons level may not be achieved anytime soon, but we will be doing it … someday. For now, we’ll settle for simple gadgets and little assistants. The Ring Video Doorbell has proven to be really useful. You already have several challenges, but a recent update will probably make it better. More than just a smart doorbell, the device can now “talk” to whoever is at the door. A talking doorbell? It looks like it is.
Ring Video Doorbell users will get smart answers. This feature will include Quick responses, motion warnings, Y Greetings Alexa. Make Alexa greet your visitors. Alexa can ask who’s at the door first or collect more information for you. It’s really like having your own personal host, only it’s a voice assistant who won’t be able to open a door or remove your guest’s jacket.
Alexa can also ask if there is a delivery and if you need a signature. Basically you don’t have to go to the door as Alexa can do the big tasks for you. You can also ask the person behind the door to leave a video message. You need a Ring Protect subscription for your Ring Video Doorbell Pro.
Ring Video Doorbell Smart Answers
You can access the Ring app directly on your phone. Set up your Alexa greetings and enable the feature. Go to the ‘Smart Answers’ menu. You can choose from six preset quick responses or you can leave a personal message.
Another important feature is the movement warnings. It tells your guests and visitors that they are being captured on video. When the camera detects movement, it will issue an alert. This is very useful as thieves and snoopers can be discouraged from making all your plans.
The function is available with Ring Spotlight Cam Wired, Indoor Cam and Floodlight Cam. Note that this particular feature does not work with the recently released Ring Video Doorbell wired version.
