Ring says the doorbell’s dynamic image processing and high-efficiency compression deliver “vibrant color and sharpness, whether you’re watching Wired View or video from the night before.” To that last point, there’s a new tool called Low-Light Vision that provides “clear color” videos even in the dark.
