I can understand concern over a camera inside the house being hacked, but a Ring doorbell just shows video of people at the front door.
I got it mostly because I have a lot of solicitors who don't respect my "no soliciting" sign. It's usually people who want to discuss religion or politics. With the Ring device I can tell them to go away from my laptop or smartphone.
It also provides added security. When I answer the device it gives the impression that I'm home, while I'm really downtown at a resort hotel for a day or two. I even answered my Ring device from Mexico one time while visiting my dental clinic.
Most probably there are such cameras, but when it comes to security, the last thing we should count on is the camera. I mean, the robbers may be masked, and in this case, the cameras are useless. This is why I decided to hire a security service company. About three years ago, my house was robbed and since then, I started collaborating with a security service company and during this time, my house was kept safe. If you want, you can check the site of the company I hired by clicking on ccsecurityservices.co.uk.
