Since Amazon acquired Ring back in March 2018 for $1 billion, the retailer has concentrated on pushing the range of smart products on its own platform. That means it hasn’t had much of a presence in front of installers, but that’s now set to change, with OneAV picking up distribution for Ring’s range of products in the UK.
Ring’s most famous product is undoubtedly its smart doorbell, which is offered in a variety of styles. That includes a battery-operated unit, a professionally installed model, and an Elite model which uses power over ethernet. That’s not all the company has going for it, however, as the firm also offers a variety of security cameras and related accessories.
In addition to offering the products themselves, OneAV will also be providing dealers with third-party integration drivers for linking the doorbells up with Control4 and URC; both of which were made available from Blackwire Designs, a specialist USA driver company.
James Trumper, director of OneAV, commented on the partnership, “Ring is already an incredibly popular product with our home technology professional customer-base. We’re so happy to be collaborating with Ring to further promote the brand to the CI channel providing the trade account purchase benefits OneAV offers – such as credit accounts, trade discounts and easy-ordering. OneAV are furthering our home security product range and we can’t think of a better way of making an entrance than with Ring.”
