Life and career[]

In 2011, Siminoff created Ring (then known as Doorbot), a WiFi-enabled video doorbell, as a way to see his doorbell when he was in the garage. He appeared as an entrepreneur on Shark Tank in 2013.

In 2018, Ring was acquired by Amazon, and Siminoff returned to Shark Tank as a guest shark, even though he wasn’t able to find a partner there.Siminoff is a member of YPO.
