Amazon has bought a US firm that makes high-tech doorbells in a move expected to help the online retailer improve how it delivers parcels. But it has been criticized for partnering with at least 200 law enforcement agencies to carry out surveillance via its Ring doorbells. The bells send live video of customers' doorsteps to their smartphones, computers or Amazon Echo devices. The partnerships allow police officers to ask customers to "share videos" and information about crime and safety issues in their area via the Ring app. Ring told the BBC: "Law enforcement can only submit video requests to users in a given area when investigating an active case. Ring facilitates these requests and user consent is required in order for any footage or information to be shared with law enforcement."
