Ring.Com was founded in 2012 by current CEO and owner James Siminoff in Santa Monica, California. After talking with his wife about a “video doorbell”, Sminioff and three engineer friends spent a year working on his project.
The company operates a camera and security company with a unique twist: video that can be sent to a smartphone and microphones that allow two way conversations. Originally called DoorBot, the name was later changed to Ring when other products were added to the lineup. Ring has become one of the most popular home security options in just 5 years, raising more than $61.2 million in crowd funding.
In February 2022, Consumer Reports noted that the Ring system could easily be hacked.
Ring.Com employs approximately 50 persons and has headquarters in Santa Monica, California.
