Amazon buys Ring to get into the home security business


Amazon already owns your doorstep. Now it wants to secure the inside of your home.

The company is buying Ring, maker of security cameras and internet-connected doorbells. It pairs nicely with Amazon Key, a smart doorlock and security camera service that allows Amazon delivery people to drop packages inside of people’s homes.

Amazon Key works in tandem with a security camera that records every in-home delivery. Ring offers similar services, recording live videos of customers’ doorsteps and homes, then sending the videos to their smartphones.
