Ring Intercom now offers guest keys for more convenience
The smart intercom Ring Intercom now has a new function called “Guest with automatic release”, thanks to which trusted visitors can gain access to the building with a virtual guest key.
Ring Intercom with guest key function
At IFA 2022, Ring had officially unveiled the Ring Intercom smart intercom system. It is also suitable for rental apartments and can be easily connected to existing intercoms to add smart features.
Now there’s a new feature thanks to which you can automatically grant guests and visitors access to your apartment or home. “Guest with automatic release” is the name of the function that does exactly what the name implies.
Regular and trusted people can open the front door via the Ring app on their smartphone as soon as they have such a guest key. However, unlike the Shared Users feature, automatically verified guests will not have access to other Ring Intercom features and will not be able to adjust settings or view event history.
“User control and security were paramount in the development of Auto Verify. Our customers decide when and for how long regular and trusted guests are automatically granted access to the building – 24/7, on specific days, or only at specific times,” reveals Jamie Siminoff, founder and chief inventor of Ring.
Each time the guest key is used, you’ll also get a real-time notification on your smartphone. In addition, the event is recorded in Ring Intercom’s event log in the Ring app. Individual privacy and security settings can also be set and settings customized in the app.
Automatic release for Amazon deliveries
The new guest key function is based on the release function for Amazon deliveries. This optional feature from Ring Intercom allows verified suppliers to leave Amazon packages at a secure, pre-determined location in the building during a specified time window, even when no one is home.
Ring Intercom has been available for purchase in Germany since September 28, 2022 for 129.99 euros via Ring.com and Amazon.de. The device can also be purchased as a bundle with a Ring charging station and a quick-release-battery-pack for the introductory price of 99.99 euros (instead of the regular 169.99 euros) can be ordered
