Back in 2012, Jamie Siminoff and a few recent college grads invented the Video Doorbell in a garage in Southern California. Over the past six years, the Ring Team has grown to become a leader in neighborhood and home security with a singular mission: To reduce crime in neighborhoods.

Today, we’re proud to make an announcement that promises to accelerate Ring’s mission while offering smarter security and greater value to all our Neighbors.

Ring is now part of the Amazon family!

This partnership will provide Ring with resources that will allow us to continue to grow as a brand and develop even more innovative, affordable and effective solutions, making smart home security more accessible to Neighbors around the globe.

“Our mission to reduce crime in neighborhoods has been at the core of everything we do at Ring,” said Jamie. “Together with Amazon, we will accelerate our mission dramatically by connecting more Neighbors globally and making our security devices and systems more affordable and accessible.”

While this partnership is truly the start of something special, Ring will continue to be committed to providing the best experience and most effective devices for all our Neighbors. Even as Ring and Amazon continue to grow together, our number-one priority will never change: To reduce crime in neighborhoods.

You can expect a lot of updates in the near future, including the introduction of the all-new Ring Alarm and the next-generation Stick Up Cam. In the meantime, here are some answers to a few questions you may have.
