Police stream live video from Ring doorbells using third-party tech

A handful of police departments across the US are using software that lets them register the locations of people’s home security cameras including Amazon Ring doorbells and get residents’ permission to stream live video from the cameras.

Amazon distanced itself from the practice, saying that Ring “is not working with any of the companies” making the tech that police are using.

The software is sold by Fusus — a Georgia-based tech firm with no connection to Amazon — that builds dashboards for police departments that combine feeds from public and private security cameras in one place. Fusus also has contracts with police departments in Minnesota, Georgia, California, and Illinois, according to its marketing materials.
