Amazon announces privacy updates as its devices expand deeper into the home

Amazon will introduce a new privacy feature for the smart doorbells of its subsidiary Ring called “Home Mode”, which will prevent the doorbell cameras from recording footage when residents are home. Earlier this year, Amazon rolled out “privacy zones” which exclude selected areas in Ring’s field of vision from being recorded or viewed live.

The changes come as Amazon has faced scrutiny for recording customer conversations through Alexa and its public-private partnership with police forces through a smart doorbell company.
