City of Palmdale Announces ‘Ring’ Partnership and Rebate Program for Its Residents

Initiative aims to reduce crime in neighborhoods through investment in affordable, easy-to-use, and effective smart home security

PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale today announced its partnership with Ring to provide discounts for local residents who wish to purchase select home security devices. During the promotional period which begins at 8:00 am on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 residents will have the opportunity to receive a $100 promotional code funded by the City of Palmdale and Ring. The Palmdale City Council approved $50,000 of City funding at their September meeting which will enable 1,000 Palmdale residents to participate in the program on a first-come-first-served basis.

The rebate program will incentivize the purchase of Ring Video Doorbells and security devices which connect to the user’s smartphone or tablet via the free Ring app (iOS/Android). Residents are then notified when the motion sensor is activated or if someone rings their doorbell, or they can choose to view the camera’s live video feed at any time. Optional video subscription services are available for purchase to residents who want to save their Ring videos to view or share them at a later time.

“Public safety is our top priority in Palmdale,” said Palmdale City Manager James Purtee. “Our crime rate continues to drop thanks to the excellent relationship between the City, law enforcement and or residents. We believe this partnership with Ring will help us in our efforts to continue our downward crime trend.”

“We’re excited to partner with the City of Palmdale 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, Palmdale residents can connect with one another and stay up-to-date on local crime and safety information 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.”
