CASE STUDY: An affordable retro-fit video entry solution in Central London
Product: Ring Video Doorbell Elite X
A new SMC customer wanted a simple, modern solution for their home in Belgravia, without needing any new infrastructure.
The house was refurbished on a lightning-fast turnaround, and the 20-year-old Crestron system was removed in favour of a more-easily understandable Sonos, Apple-TV based installation, which they were familiar with from homes overseas.
Often travelling, or working late, the owner kept missing Amazon and other deliveries and requested an easy-to-use answer to avoid this frustration.
SMC recommended a Ring X Line video doorbell, which would work on the existing wiring, and allowed the homeowner, and their housekeeper, to communicate easily with any visitors and delivery companies.
An X Line Elite doorbell was seIected, which enabled an interior-designer friendly, completely flush installation, with a high-quality brass faceplate, to match the surrounding door furniture.
The images are relayed to the client’s smartphone, the new Sony Android TVs (using the Alexa app) and to an Amazon Echo Show in the housekeeper’s apartment.
One benefit of the X Line product is that the product subscription is included, meaning no ongoing costs – the device, lifetime Ring Protect subscription, and extended 4-year limited warranty are all included in the one-off price.
