We've installed, and used, a variety of smart home products recently, but none as new to the market as the Ring Alarm Wireless Home Security Kit. This is a brand new offering from Ring, the makers of the widely used Ring Doorbell! If you like the Ring Doorbell, you will be excited to learn about this new DIY friendly security system.
The last set in the install is to set up the Ring Alarm Kit keypad. This can be mounted on a wall or set on a surface. It has a very ingenious stand for doing this. Set up the alarm code in the app. The keypad is battery operated or can be plugged in. Take a little time to understand how to arm and disarm the system via the keypad.
Wow, this exceeded any expectation we had for a DIY friendly home security system!
The install was simple and the app was easy to follow-- making pairing the devices seamless.
The possibility for system expansion are affordable and varied (new products coming soon). From our experience, Ring seems committed to maintaining its software and app and innovating for the future. They appear to be a company that is in the smart home business for the long haul and not some "one-hit" wonder!
This whole-home security system is truly DIY friendly. It's good for renters or short-term homeowners, as nothing is permanent making it is something you can remove and take with you!
