Ring Patents Solar-Powered Security Yard Sign

Bot Home Automation, dba Ring, has patented its illuminated yard sign.

 •

Ring, maker of smart doorbells and video cameras, has been awarded a design patent (#D797,856) for its illuminated security yard sign to ward off trespassers at night.

It might sound trivial, but I happen to have one, and it's pretty slick.

The sign, powered by a solar panel, seems to be quite effective. I haven't been robbed yet.

The patent application was filed in May 2016 and issued in September 2017 to Bot Home Automation, of which Ring is a dba.
