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.
