Following a pilot program with the Los Angeles Police Department in the US, within six months it was proven that Ring’s Video Doorbell which provides a live view of any doorway and includes adjustable motion sensors and night vision, was able to reduce crime in a Los Angeles neighborhood by over 55%. The goal is to bring the same convenience and security to the UAE neighborhoods.
