Millions of Ring doorbell owners receive free upgrade – and it’s perfect for Christmas

RING has given its smart doorbells a festive makeover that’s sure to surprise guests outside.

The Amazon-owned company has introduced some brand new Quick Replies with a fitting Christmas theme.

Quick Replies are responses that automatically play when you can’t get to the door.

Unlike some of Ring‘s features, they’re completely free for all customers.

This year, the firm has gone all out with none other than Grinch responses.

And they’re all unsurprisingly cheeky.

See the full list below:

  • Huh? A Visitor? To THIS house? MAX! Should I scare them away? (Dog Barks) Ughhh fine…. you’re no fun. They’ll be right there.
  • Oh thank goodness. They’re trying to make me sing songs and bake cookies in there. Me! The Grinch! But now that you’re here—you can do it! They’ll be right there, don’t you move!
  • OooooOoOoo!! Look who it is! Are you stopping by for a bit festive cheer? Ya WHATEVER. Yuck. Unfortunately, there is plenty of cheer to go around, but now you can have my portion! They’ll be there in a bit. Enjoy!
  • Okay, hello? Hi. (Coughing) Seems like there’s a bit of a SnAFuuuUuuUU with the Roast Beast in there. Wooo that is stinging my eyes! (Sniffs) TOO MUCH WHO-SAUCE! Sorry, please leave a message.
  • Hello, It’s the Grinch-what do you want? No! Don’t answer that. Instead, please leave a message after the weird sound I’m about to make: (Makes sound) OOOEEOWWUUNNGG.
  • (Horrified) Oh my… Oh my word… there’s just so much paper, and tape, and bows and smiling. So much laughter! I’ve gotta get out of here! Leave them a message!

Ring has enlisted American comedian James Austin Johnson, of Saturday Night Live fame, to voice the notorious character.
