Ring: Quick-Replies now available in Germany
Ring, the popular home security company, has launched a new feature called Quick-Replies, which is now available in Germany. This feature allows users to respond to visitors at their door without having to open it or face-to-face interaction.
How does Quick-Replies work?
Quick-Replies uses pre-selected messages that users can choose from to respond to visitors. When someone rings the doorbell, users receive a notification on their phone through the Ring app. They can then select a quick-reply message such as “I’m not home right now, but can I help you?” or “Please leave the package outside, thank you!” These messages are automatically sent as a response to the visitor, without the need for any manual input.
The feature is especially useful for those who may not want to engage in a conversation with a stranger at their door or for those who are unable to physically get to the door. It provides a convenient and safe way to communicate with visitors without compromising security.
Setting up Quick-Replies
To use Quick-Replies, users need to have the Ring app installed on their smartphone and own a compatible Ring doorbell. The feature can be enabled within the app settings, where users can customize the quick-reply messages according to their preferences.
Users can also choose to add additional personalized quick-reply messages, giving them more flexibility in their communication. This allows for a more personalized and seamless experience when interacting with visitors.
Benefits of Quick-Replies
Quick-Replies offers several advantages, including:
- Convenience: Users can quickly respond to visitors without having to physically go to the door or engage in a conversation.
- Safety: Quick-Replies provide a safe way to communicate with unknown visitors, ensuring personal and home security.
- Customization: Users can customize the quick-reply messages to suit their preferences and communication style.
- Time-saving: By using pre-selected messages, users save time by avoiding the need to come up with a response on the spot.
Ring’s Quick-Replies feature is a valuable addition to the series of innovative features offered by the home security company. It provides users in Germany with a convenient and safe way to interact with visitors at their door, without the need for face-to-face communication. Whether someone is not home or simply prefers not to engage with strangers, Quick-Replies offer a hassle-free solution for answering the door.
