Ring’s smart cameras have a stylish design and are perfect for business owners, parents, pet owners, families and students. Watch over your office, house, kids, nanny, pets, gate, boundary walls and more when home or away. Popular features include Live View and two-way talk, motion-activated recording, night vision, a 1080p HD camera and a siren.
“At Ring, we are continuously pushing the boundaries on bringing the most innovative devices and features to our customers,” said Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and chief inventor. “With our growing lineup of both indoor and outdoor cams, varying in size and functionality, our customers have choices when determining how best to secure their homes.”

The new Ring Video Doorbell 3 has improved motion detection and enhanced dual-band wifi alongside the features Ring users know and love, including a 1080p HD camera, two-way talk and Live View. The Ring Video Doorbell 3 builds upon the great features of the Ring Video Doorbell 2 to now include a new, adjustable motion zone, called near zone, which can detect motion within 1.5 to 4.5m of the front door, as well as enhanced dual-band 2.4 Ghz/5Ghz wifi for improved connectivity.
With Alexa compatibility, users can simply say, “Alexa, show me the front door,” to see their Ring Video Doorbell 3’s Live View, or say, “Alexa, answer the front door,” to begin speaking with whoever is at their door. In addition, with Linked Devices, available across all Ring products, users can link their doorbell to compatible Ring Cams to create an integrated, security system.
Privacy, security, and control are foundational to Ring. Ring Video Doorbell 3 includes Privacy Zones, which allow users to exclude areas of the camera field of view from video recording. Similar to all of Ring’s Doorbells and Cams, Ring Video Doorbell 3 features toggles that allow users to turn off video or audio recording for an extra layer of privacy, at any time.
Ring Africa products are now officially available in South Africa through the following retailers – Takealot, Builders Warehouse, iStore, Incredible Connection and Leroy Merlin.
