What is Ring Intercom?
Ring Intercom upgrades existing audio intercom handsets to offer increased peace of mind and convenience for apartment dwellers. With do-it-yourself installation alongside your existing intercom, Ring Intercom lets you speak to visitors from anywhere via Two-Way Talk and provide access to your apartment building from anywhere.
With Ring Intercom, you can provide verified building access directly from the Ring app. The Shared User feature lets you provide others with access to your Ring device, giving significant others or housemates the ability to buzz themselves into the building using the Ring app on their own smartphone. Auto-Verify for Amazon Deliveries lets you provide verified delivery drivers with automated, time-bound building access when they have a parcel specifically for the building.** You can manage and remove trusted Shared Users or activate Auto-Verify for Amazon Deliveries at any time.
Download the Ring app and follow the instructions to retrofit Ring Intercom alongside your existing, compatible audio intercom, and benefit from Ring features that matter, like Two-Way Talk and real-time alerts* straight to your smartphone or tablet when someone buzzes at your building's entrance.
