Picture yourself in this situation. You pop to the shops because the brand new Xbox One X you ordered isn't scheduled to arrive until the evening. When you return home, you find that dreaded 'sorry we missed you' card waiting for you on the other side of the door. Yep, you missed the delivery and now you have to reschedule it.
Chances are that could have been avoided had you owned a Ring Video Doorbell 2. Before the courier even rang the bell, you'd have received an alert informing you motion had been detected. From there, you could have used the Ring application to speak with driver, instructing them to leave the package with a neighbour.
