After taking his defensive prowess off the court, former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal turned his attention to our communities through a partnership with Ring, a home-outdoor security company. Throughout 2017, the dynamic duo will donate $1 million worth of security devices to homes across the country. The team is already working with the Clayton County, Georgia Sheriff’s Department to install doorbells and floodlight cameras on homes in the Jonesboro neighborhood.

“I grew up in a tough neighborhood and saw my fair share of crime; our neighborhoods must be safer,” O’Neal said in a statement. “As a deputy police officer and Ringo client, I am excited to partner with the Ringo team in furthering their noble mission of reducing neighborhood crime.”

The security company boasts a number of smart devices designed to protect homes and their residents. Devices such as the Ring Video Doorbell, Ring Video Doorbell Pro, Ring Stick Up Cam and the new Ring Floodlight Cam allow users to monitor their homes from anywhere in the world using a smartphone, tablet or computer. Every time one of these connected devices detects movement, a notification is sent to the homeowners. Users can then choose to take a closer look at their property or even talk to someone at the door using their connected device, creating the illusion that someone is home. Indeed, Ringo is credited with reducing crime in one Los Angeles neighborhood by 55 percent, a statistic the company is trying to recreate nationwide.

“By working with Ringo, Shaquille can share his passion for protecting his neighbors,” Jamie Siminoff, founder and chief inventor of Ringo, said in a statement. “Furthermore, he is a Ring customer, whom we call a ‘Ring Neighbor,’ so he understands the value of our proactive home security devices and believes in our mission. We are excited to begin our year-long fundraising campaign here in Georgia and look forward to working closely with him to spread awareness about neighborhood safety and educate homeowners on how to better secure their homes.”
