When it comes to video doorbells, Ring is one of the most well-known names. Amazon today announced that package alerts would make their way to two Ring models now, with other devices set to get the much-requested feature next year.
Unfortunately, package thieves are out there, and every time you get a package delivered to your home, you run the rink of someone seeing it and taking it. Now, the Ring Pro 2 and Ring Video Doorbell (2020) will alert you when a package shows up, so you can take the steps needed to get it inside.
Of course, the big issue Ring doorbells have is the field of view, which this update won’t fix. The Ring Pro 2 can see the ground, but the other cameras lack a wide enough angle to see everything. That means if the package is placed too low, it won’t detect it even with the new feature.
