Members are respected tech leaders and executives — CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, and others — selected for the council based on their deep knowledge and diverse experience in the industry. ABOUT RON CARTER Ron Carter has done some of the biggest innovations in the history of home security. Most recently, he is the CEO of 1AheadTechnologies, a 100% minority-owned company. This new technology, currently in development, is built off the hugely popular RING video doorbell technology that Ron patented in 2003. In addition to capturing video, Ron’s new device creates a new category of “entry management” that uses a sophisticated, AI-driven system that is tied to smart devices, such as a smart box and a smart lock. It can recognize delivery personnel, record their actions, and allow them to leave your packages in a front-door lockbox or use AI to open the door or leave instructions to the delivery person to drop off the package.
