Amazon Ring Public Subsidy Program Aims To Dominate Residential Security

By: Seth Bartynski and John Honovich, Published on May 20, 2019

Amazon dominates market after market. Quitely, but increasingly, they are doing so in residential security, through a combination of significant discounts and local government contributions.

IPVM's investigation found more than two dozen subsidy programs costing Ring and taxpayers at least $1.5 million. Moreover, we found these programs were accelerating.

However, Amazon is not simply throwing money away. They are strategically seeding the market to strengthen network efforts providing them a unique competitive advantage, on the backs of taxpayer funds.
