"It's something that many of our customers have asked for," Ring President Leila Rouhi told me over the phone.
Ring sells a variety of smart home devices, from doorbells to security cameras and beyond. Thursday's announcements add to the company's smart home lineup, but Ring also introduced three connected car products at its hardware event -- proof it has plans to expand beyond the home.
The Ring Mailbox Sensor is designed to send an alert to your phone when the door is opened and is supposed to work with other Ring products, such as using Ring doorbells and outdoor cameras to record footage when the mailbox is opened.
You can preorder the Mailbox Sensor starting Oct. 8 for $30.
