The bell can now settle for messages or play recorded messages


One of the advantages of devices like the Ring Video Doorbell is that they come with a two-way intercom. This means that even when you are not at home, you can see who is at the door with the camera and talk to that person remotely over the intercom. This is useful, but it does assume you have time to use the feature.

So what happens when you're busy? In an announcement on the Ring blog, the company announced that it is now launching a new update for its smart doorbells. This update gives Ring users the ability to create pre-recorded messages that can be played if someone is at the door and you're not there to answer, or Alexa to remove a message from the person.

Ring has also introduced new motion alarms for its wired doorbell and wired cameras to trigger the motion sensor. It sounds an audible alarm to notify the person that they are being recorded to make it clear that this is the case where they are recorded for nefarious reasons such as theft of items from the user's porch, which can serve as evidence.

All of these features can be enabled or disabled if you wish. However, they are available in case you want to take advantage of them.
