Introducing the Neighbors App: The New Neighborhood Watch

By Nick on May 8, 2018

Everything we do at Ring has a singular focus. Our lineup of Video Doorbells and Security Cameras help protect the outside of your home, but our mission has always been the same: To reduce crime in neighborhoods.

Today, we’re taking the next step in our commitment to safer neighborhoods with the launch of the Neighbors App, your newest tool in the fight against local crime. The Neighborhoods feature in the Ring App was so successful, we decided to create its own platform!

The Neighbors App gives you real-time crime and safety alerts from your neighbors, the Ring News team and local law enforcement, so we can work together to stop burglaries, prevent package theft and make our communities safer for all. And if you spot something suspicious in your area, you can anonymously post a text, photo or video to keep your community on the lookout.

Safer Neighborhoods Mean Safer Homes


Criminals don’t target homes. They target neighborhoods. And your neighborhood is your first line of defense. By keeping you connected to neighbors and local law enforcement, the Neighbors App empowers your community to take a stand against crime.

Neighborhood Security at Your Fingertips

The Neighbors App lets you create a custom neighborhood around your home. When anyone in your neighborhood shares a crime or safety alert, you’ll get a notification on your phone or tablet, so you’ll always be up-to-date on the latest local issues.

You can share the alert with your family and friends, provide tips, and work with police to take the crooks off the streets.

Reduce Crime in Your Neighborhood

In addition to alerts from your neighbors, the Ring News Team will keep you updated with all the latest news in your area, so you’ll be the first to know if there’s a fire near your home, street closures in your neighborhood or any other issues in your community. You’ll also get updates from local law enforcement to let you know of any arrests or criminal activity in the area.

With community news and police updates on your phone and tablet, you can stay ahead of local crime and help put criminals behind bars.
