LAS VEGAS, NV - Ring, creator of the Ring™ Video Doorbell, and GainSpan, an innovator in wireless connectivity solutions for the rapidly emerging Internet of Things ("IoT"), today announced from the 2015 International CES that GainSpan will equip the Ring Video Doorbell with its GS2011MIE module, making it the world’s first Wi-Fi-enabled, battery-operated, HD video doorbell.
GainSpan's GS2000 based modules provide a quick, easy and cost-effective way for Ring to add Wi-Fi connectivity to its video doorbell. GainSpan also enables the Ring Video Doorbell to maintain its impressive battery life of up to 14 months thanks to the module's low power consumption and fast wake-up performance from idle state. In addition, the Ring Video Doorbell application code can run on the GS2000 thanks to its highly integrated, extensive networking stack and the large memory.
James Siminoff, inventor and CEO of Ring, said: "We are pleased to partner with GainSpan to equip the Ring Video Doorbell, the world’s first battery-operated, HD video doorbell, with low latency, power efficient and reliable Wi-Fi. The GainSpan module is a vital component in making our device the best performing and most efficient doorbell on the market today."
Greg Winner, CEO of GainSpan, added: "We appreciate the continued trust of Ring in selecting us for the first and second generation of their video doorbell. Ring is an entrepreneurial company, with innovative product ideas, and is an ideal candidate to truly benefit from the features and capabilities offered by our GS2000 based modules."
With a strong focus on home security, monitoring and convenience, the Ring Video Doorbell streams live HD video and two-way audio of a home's doorstep straight to the user's smartphone or tablet over a Wi-Fi network. The Ring Video Doorbell offers many unique features, including: cloud storage, easy installation, 720p HD wide-angle video capture, night-vision video recording, and powerful motion detection.
Gainspan’s GS2000 family includes the GS2011M and the GS2100M, which offer multi Mbps throughput (over SPI or SDIO interface). The modules are based on the company’s GS2000, a dual mode Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and (802.15.4) SoC and are perfect for applications such as HD video, security cameras, remote speakers.
