Homeowners get phone alerts with streaming video if the doorbell rings or the device's heat sensors detect a person or a passing car. Ring's basic doorbell sells for $99, with recurring charges starting at $3 a month for users who want footage stored. Ring says it stores the recordings for two months. Many law enforcement agencies nationwide said the idea to partner with Ring came after the company promoted its product at law enforcement conferences. Some departments have chosen to simply use Ring's Neighbors app, which encourages residents to share videos of suspicious activity. Other agencies agreed to provide subsidies, matched by Ring, to offer hundreds of discounted cameras in hopes of tapping into footage of residential streets, yards and sidewalks. And some police chiefs raffle off the devices. Ring would not disclose the number of communities with such partnerships. Sharing video is always voluntary and privacy is protected, according to the company and police. "There is nothing required of homeowners who participate in the subsidies, and their identity and data remain private," spokeswoman Brigid Gorham said. She said customers can control who views their footage, and no personally identifiable information is shared with police without a user's consent.

The Nest Hello gets big points for including a snapshot from the camera with each notification, so you can get a glimpse of what's happening without having to open the app. The snapshots are extra handy when facial recognition is wrong — which didn't happen often, to be fair. First, the app asked me to identify my family and close friends multiple times from photos the Hello took. You can do this for anyone who comes to your door. I tagged my husband four times, for example, and my son six times. In the Nest app's Familiar Faces gallery, you can tap Select, choose all the instances of the same person, and tap Merge to combine them. After that, it worked pretty smoothly, but it did misidentify my husband one night as my son's best friend, a 6 year old African American boy who wears glasses. My husband is much taller, a lot older and Caucasian, and does not wear glasses. I also wish the Nest Hello used facial recognition a little better. There's no way to exclude certain individuals from triggering a notification when they're recognized, for example, and I don't need the app to tell me that it's me who just arrived home.
