Never before have we had so much technology at our fingertips. Many of us live in "smart homes" that include speakers, phones, computers and watches that connect us (and our data) to the world.

One of the newer additions to the lineup is "smart doorbells," such as Amazon's Ring, with video cameras that allow homeowners to see who is at their door and on the sidewalk in front of their home.

KPBS is launching a series of stories on how all of this technology is changing our lives. We are particularly interested in people who have Ring doorbells and live in cities where the police department has an agreement with Amazon.

If you live in Chula Vista, Carlsbad, Oceanside or La Mesa and have a Ring doorbell, we'd like to speak with you.
