Jamie Siminoff, the CEO and inventor of the Ring Video Doorbell, discusses the convenience and security aspects of his company’s products that go from your front door to your back porch and beyond. Ring let’s you answer the door remotely, and even talk with whoever is there, whether you are home or not. Their Stick Up Cam lets you see other locations outside your house, and their wireless Chime means you don’t even have to have your phone on you when the doorbell rings. Jamie talks what led him to create this market, and how the information generated goes beyond your home to help secure your neighborhood.
