Ring doorbells to send live video to Mississippi police

Police in Jackson, Mississippi, are asking residents to connect their smart doorbells to a real-time surveillance centre, in an effort to fight crime.

The mayor said the video streams would only be looked at if a crime was committed in the area.

Amazon, which owns the best-selling smart doorbell Ring, said that it was not an official partner in the scheme.

Privacy groups said it could undermine civil liberties, especially if footage showed neighbouring properties.
