Tech industry analyst Carolina Milanesi said engaging with police and offering incentives is a "very smart move by Ring" and a missed opportunity for competitors, including Google's Nest and smaller companies such as Arlo Technologies and SimpliSafe. But a staff attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California called the system "an unmitigated disaster" for the privacy of many neighborhoods. Through the subsidy programs, Amazon "gets to offer, at taxpayer dime, discounted products that allow it to really expand its tentacles into wide areas of private life way more than it already has," Mohammad Tajsar said. The Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia has spent $50,000 to offer discounts on 1,000 cameras. Several other communities in the region also participate in subsidy programs, and officials in Los Angeles County just voted last month to get on board. Officers can view a "heat map" that shows the general area where cameras are, but they do not see a camera's actual location. If police want a video, they must contact Ring to see if the resident is willing to share, said Jennifer Brutus, senior management analyst for the Arcadia Police Department. Arcadia launched its program at the end of 2017, and in the following year, the city saw a 25% decrease in residential burglaries, Brutus said. It's hard to quantify how much of that is directly related to Ring, but she said the devices act as a deterrent. In one case, a doorbell camera caught footage of four burglary suspects trying to enter a residence. Three were arrested at the time, but a fourth got away.

Trees should also be trimmed away from light sources. While wearing dark colors, walk out on your property with a friend at night. You should be able to describe the other person from about 100 feet away anywhere on your property. If there is a dark area adding light or painting surfaces with white or light paint will help illuminate the area. If it is time to paint your house consider using a light color. It helps reflect light and makes it hard to hide against the house without standing out. If you plan on heading out of town and will be away from your home for even a few days, be sure to let a trusted neighbor or friend know so they can tend to your home. Their duties may include picking up newspapers, mail or even turning on different lights inside of your home.
