These videos of animals acting like (badly behaved) humans are a must watch

Bears and kangaroos are regular house guests - and Ring captures the chaos.

Gone are the days of wondering who's at the door when the doorbell rings. Video doorbells are a great way to give you peace of mind before opening the door, or when you're away from home.

But these smart home systems don't just show you who's delivering a parcel or walking up your driveway.

Ring has a suite of video doorbells and outdoor cameras - and thanks to some of their features, they've been able to capture footage of some rather interesting potential house guests.

There's a bear in there!

One Californian homeowner's Ring spotted a local bear’s nocturnal antics. Not only does the bear manage to open the car door, she rummages on the backseat, looking for snacks, while her cubs wait patiently.

The footage is so clear because it was captured on a Ring Spotlight Cam Plus Battery, $289, which features Colour Night Vision, customisable Motion Detection, and a pair of bright, motion-activated lights.


'Roo's there?

In South Australia, a kangaroo was captured casually hopping past someone's home - then going back for another look. The Ring footage shows the lone kangaroo bouncing into and out of someone’s driveway for a nosey.

This head-to-toe view was captured by the Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus, which comes with HD Video and Head-To-Toe View so you'll never miss a visitor.

Doggy door?

Most of us think our pets are pretty clever, but this dog really takes the biscuit. When she was locked out of her own home, she took matters into her own paws to get her owners' attention, pressing the Ring Video Doorbell, $149, to let them know she was ready to come inside.
