American company Ring has inked a partnership with Nairobi-based tech company Mart Networks to introduce smart home security devices to the Kenyan market.
The deal signed on Thursday will see Mart Networks deliver home security products that are accessible and effective.
Ring, which is owned by Amazon Inc., provides reliable, easy-to-install do-it-yourself home security systems.
Devices such as Ring video doorbells enable homeowners to see, hear and speak to anyone at their front door, from their phone or tablet, even when there are no lights.
Ring devices provide an extra layer of security through a variety of features incorporated in the video doorbells and security cameras.
This means users will benefit from motion detection, two-way talk, night vision, and more; all controllable via the Ring app.
“At Ring, our mission is to make neighborhoods safer. We reimagined home security with products like Ring video doorbell, Ring alarm, floodlight cam, and stick-up cams,” said Ring Vice President, Emerging Markets Mohammad Hoda.
“We look forward to working together to bring our products to residents and continue to provide peace of mind to more customers around the world,” he added.
Ring alarm allows users to customize their setup to suit their home and receive real-time notifications in case any of their alarm sensors are triggered.
In addition, Ring has put features in place across all its devices to boost privacy, security and user control. The features vary based on the device and may be subject to a Ring Protect subscription.
Even rural Kenya colloquially known as mashinanani requires home security and most of these modern home security systems rely on internet which is not yet available in some parts of Kenya
Do they have a plan where Ring can be used to villages where they have no power? Also, once the camera capture an image of the thief, how will the thief be caught?

This does not mean anything in Kenya. Did you see Matiangi's security system? It was there but it did not stop the police and DCI from breaking and doing whatever they wanted!
Ring systems won't solve insecurity in Kenya. Kenyans are always a step ahead.
How many cases have been solved by CCTV?
