Ring, since its founding in 2013, is a company on a mission to make families feel safe and allow them to watch over their most prized possessions. Cycling has become a hugely popular hobby in South Africa, and more consumers purchase bikes for their weekend rides. The company’s smart cameras allow car and bike enthusiasts to watch their vehicles and garages even when they are not at home.
A popular device used for this function is the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery. Positioned outside your garage, it provides you with a bright light for entering and leaving your garage. This device also has an HD camera, night vision, a remote-activated 110-decibel alarm, and adjustable motion sensors. You receive an instant alert on your phone if the sensors are activated. The product allows you to see, hear and speak to anyone on your property via the Ring app on your phone, tablet, or PC. What about when loadshedding happens? The good news is that it’s battery-operated.
Another worthwhile addition is the newly launched Ring Alarm. This can be a stand-alone product for anyone looking to add an alarm system to their home, or you can add it to your existing ring of security. Add the compact Ring Alarm sensors to your garage, doors, and windows. The Ring Alarm keypad allows users to sound the alarm and use the “mode” buttons to set the alarm to either ‘disarmed,’ ‘home,’ or ‘away’ mode.
Mohammad Meraj Hoda, Vice President of Business Development, said: “We know how much South Africans enjoy their cycling and cars, and we are pleased to be able to offer them a solution to ensure their valuable possessions are kept safe.”
