Ring has launched a new app, Neighbors, opening up its security video sharing in the hope that it becomes Nextdoor but for more than just complaining about security.

The app, the first to be released since Ring was acquired by Amazon, pulls out features that previously were only available within its Ring app for camera owners.

The idea is that, within the Neighbors app, people within the same neighborhood will be able to collaborate on security.

Effectively a digital neighborhood watch, it supports both private sharing and real-time communication between members.

With this new release for iOS and Android, those members needn’t have bought a Ring camera themselves yet.

According to Ring, the idea behind Neighbors came because of feedback around how users of its cameras were being asked to share the footage.
