Law enforcement agencies have begun to partner with Amazon’s Ring video doorbell. The partnership allows for these agencies to request video footage from the doorbells through an app in an effort to solve crimes in the area.
From a business perspective these partnerships make a lot of sense for Amazon. As law enforcement agencies look for options to reduce crime, partnerships such as these offer a cost-effective solution for obtaining more information.
On the other hand, questions of privacy naturally come to mind in cases like this. Will the knowledge that Ring has partnered with local police cause consumers to look elsewhere for their security needs? Hear what Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern had to say in this excerpt from Business Casual.
