Ring Launches Ring Protect™, A Home Security System Built to Further Reduce Neighborhood Crime

Ring Protect provides homeowners with powerful security at an affordable price and enhances the ‘Ring of Security’ the company’s products and services create around homes and neighborhoods.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ring, the leader in neighborhood security, today introduced Ring Protect, an affordable and comprehensive DIY home security system. Built to further reduce neighborhood crime, the new customizable security system enhances the effectiveness of Ring's powerful, easy-to-use Doorbells and Cams. Together, these products create a stronger-than-ever Ring of Security that protects homes both inside and out.

Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: "At Ring, everything we make is designed to establish and enhance a Ring of Security around homes and neighborhoods. Ring Protect provides an incredibly effective level of security when compared to traditional, expensive systems, yet comes at a fraction of the cost since it was developed in-house. Offering an effective, inexpensive solution means more homeowners can afford and use Ring Protect, which in turn leads to safer neighborhoods."
