Why did Ring decide to create the Control Centre?

Given the importance of security, privacy and transparency, we decided to create a more centralised place in the Ring app where users can see and control important security and privacy settings. 

This provides users with an easier, more direct way to select the levels of security and privacy that are important to them. We feel it’s critical to be transparent with our customers and help them be in control of their privacy and security settings.
