Pretty much every element of your household can be enhanced with home automation these days – from a camera-equipped smart refrigerator that lets you peek inside via your smartphone to help create a shopping list while you’re out of the house, to smart lighting systems that illuminate your space in a myriad of dazzling, fully customizable options. You can even control your entire smart home network with a voice-driven smart assistant such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

The Ring Video Doorbell is not only a pretty nifty device (especially if you’re like us and you can’t get enough gadgets), but it also makes us feel more safe and secure at home or when we’re away from our home. But like any other piece of equipment or technology that you add to your home, the Ring Video Doorbell can be tricky to install, and if it was done incorrectly then it won’t work—meaning that you won’t be able to properly use it for security (and let’s face it, to see if any neighborhood feral cats come to your door).
