Be sure to mark your calendar for the program that is starting a ring in the community. The City of Santa Clarita is partnering with Ring to provide discounts for Santa Clarita residents on the purchase of select home security devices. During the promotional period, residents will have the opportunity to receive a $100 promotional code funded by the City and Ring, along with additional discounts generously provided by Ring. The approved $25,000 of City funding will enable 500 Santa Clarita residents to participate in the program on a first come, first served basis.
“We are proud to live in a city that is recognized as being a safe place to live and raise a family. We understand that our residents want additional peace of mind knowing their homes are safe, and we are glad this discount on Ring technology can help make that happen,” said Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste.
The program will incentivize the purchase of Ring Video Doorbells and Security Cams, which connect to the user’s smartphone or tablet via a free app (iOS/Android) when activated by the motion sensor, when someone rings the doorbell or by live viewing the camera’s video feed at any time. Residents can then see, hear and speak to anyone on their property. Optional video subscription services are available to residents who want to save their Ring videos.
“We’re excited to partner with the City of Santa Clarita to make our Security Doorbells and Cameras available to local residents at an even more affordable cost,” said Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring. “Even without a Ring device, Santa Clarita residents can connect with one another and stay up-to-date on local crime and safety information from their neighborhood by downloading the free Neighbors App by Ring. When neighbors, the Ring team and local leaders all work together, we can create safer communities and reduce crime in neighborhoods.”
In 2017, the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station reported 384 residential burglaries in the City of Santa Clarita. The rebate program will leverage technology, community support and strategic partnerships to maximize law enforcement efforts for residential burglaries in an effort to reduce crime.
The promotional period for the program begins August 13 and will run until the funding limit is reached. To participate in the program, residents must email firstname.lastname@example.org beginning at 8 a.m. on August 13 with their shipping address to receive the promotional code information. Ring will then provide the discounts to Santa Clarita residents after the promotional code is redeemed at checkout, at Ring.com. Addresses will be verified to ensure the location is within city limits. Emails received prior to 8:00 a.m. on the program start date will not receive a promotional code.

Promotional codes are valid for a single-use only and cannot be used towards previously purchased Ring products.
Residents will also need to pay an additional fee for a subscription to record and save the footage on the Ring mobile app. For more information about Ring’s products, visit Ring.com/products.
