Who are The Blue Lamp Trust?
The Blue Lamp Trust is a charitable organisation that operates in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. This charity is dedicated to supporting and assisting older or vulnerable individuals within the community, particularly those who have been victims of crime.

Through this programme, they offer free home security and safety services to vulnerable and older people.
What is a Ring Doorbell?
A Ring Doorbell is a high-tech doorbell with a built-in camera and speaker. It lets you see who's at your door and talk to them using your phone or tablet, even when you're not home. It's like having a virtual doorman for added security.

To be eligible to apply, you need to:
- Be a current Rias home insurance customer
- Live in Hampshire or the Isle of Wight
- Be either aged 60 and over and/or fit our charity partner's vulnerability criteria*
- Have a smart phone or tablet that is compatible with the Ring doorbell^.

What do I need to be able to use a Ring video doorbell?
To use the Ring doorbell, you’ll need a suitable strength Wi-Fi and to download the Ring app to your smart device and set up an account. This is free and the Ring Doorbell does not require a paid subscription to use its standard features, for instance to see a live view of who’s at your door, have a chat via two-way audio, or receive instant alerts and notifications.
If you want to save, share, or review recordings from your video doorbell, you will need to sign up for a paid Ring Protect subscription plan via Ring, prices for which currently start from £3.49 per month. However, the doorbell comes with a free 30-day subscription to Ring Protect, so you do have the opportunity to try this at no cost and with no obligation to buy.
Please note, if you don’t own your property, you’ll need to seek permission from your landlord or housing provider before our charity partner can fit one for you.
For more information please read our full terms and conditions, which can be found below.
*Vulnerability is defined by the Blue Lamp Trust as anyone who has been a victim of crime, has a disability, or anyone who is vulnerable due to circumstance.
^Your smart phone or tablet needs to be Android v9 and higher or IOS v14 and higher. Please check that your smart phone or tablet can download the Ring App.
