What you need to know
- Amazon's ushering in three new Ring products.
- The Ring Stick Up Cam, Indoor Cam, and Retrofit Alarm have been announced.
- They're all available for purchase today.
Ring has established itself as one of the biggest brands for home security, and at its big hardware event, a trio of new Ring hardware was unveiled.
First on the list, we have the all-new Ring Stick Up Cam. This is exactly the same as the existing Stick Up Cam, save for the fact that it's 30% cheaper. That means you'll still get 1080p Full HD video recording, night vision, etc. However, rather than setting you back a hefty $179, the new Stick Up Cam costs just $99.
Cheaper than ever
Same great features, considerably lower price.
The new Ring Stick Up Cam is the kind of upgrade we like. It has all of the same great features of its predecessor, like 1080p HD video, two-way talk, and real-time notifications. The best part? It's 30% cheaper than before, making it even more accessible for everyone.
Even better, you have your choice of a plug-in or battery style!
Moving over to the new Indoor Cam, this is the first camera ring's made specifically for indoor use. It's tiny enough that you can put it virtually anywhere, and is also the company's cheapest offering with a price tag of just $59.
Coming later this year, Ring will launch something called "home mode" that'll allow you to automatically disable recording inside your house/apartment when you're home.
The great indoors
Cover your home for less.
This is Ring's first dedicated indoor camera, and since it doesn't have to protect against the elements, it can be smaller and more affordable while still providing a good field-of-view and two-way audio.
Lastly, Ring also unveiled the Ring Retrofit Alarm Kit. The existing Ring Alarm is already the best-selling alarm system at both Amazon and Best Buy, so the Retrofit Alarm Kit aims to plug into your existing wired alarm system in your home to work with the Ring system. Support for the Ring Alarm Hub and other sensors will work with the Retrofit Alarm Kit, too. If you want to pick it up for yourself, the kit is going to set you back $199 on its own or $375 for it and a Ring Alarm Hub.
All of the new Ring goodies are available today.
