My neighbor across the street recently bought one of these because he wanted to keep an eye on his packages from amazon, and his wife wanted to feel safe when she's home alone with the kids. When we were talking about it, I politely mentioned that the data it collects goes right to Ring's servers, and because it uses proprietary software, it becomes spyware and an invasion of my privacy. I know Ring does have an end-to-end encryption feature (which I'm sure he didn't bother turning on because he most-likely didn't know it existed), but being that I don't know if it's truly end-to-end encrypted (it probably has a backdoor in it), I'm wondering if its possible for him to modify the doorbell itself to where he can connect it to some unused PC server?
