Not all living situations allow for a Ring Video Doorbell (opens in new tab) to be installed at the front door, but the company hopes to change that with its latest announcement. The Ring Door View Cam is the company's fifth video doorbell, and it's easily installed in place of your existing door viewer (aka the peephole), which is often found on doors in apartments and condos. Installation doesn't require running any wires or drilling any holes, and it can be completed in just a few minutes.
It has a rechargeable battery and removable faceplate, so it's easy to swap in a new battery when yours begins running low. You'll get the same security features from this that you would from other Ring products, like customizable motion detection and alerts, privacy zones, two-way communication, night vision, and more. Ring's products now integrate with Amazon's Alexa, so you'll be able to use your Echo Show (opens in new tab), Spot (opens in new tab), Fire Tablet (opens in new tab), or Fire TV (opens in new tab) to view who's at your door with just a simple voice command.
The Door View Cam will be officially available in the U.S. later this year for $199, and Ring also plans to bring it to the UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Norway, Belgium, Spain, Sweeden, Denmark, and Finland as well.
How long does the battery last per charge?
Probably same as the regular doorbell, up to 6 months depending on usage and motion.
