Ring's Bizarre Security Cam Includes a Drone That Flies Around Your House

Ring's Bizarre Security Cam Includes a Drone That Flies Around Your House”

It only records when flying, and the camera lens is blocked by the charging dock to ensure privacy. Then Bot Home rebranded to Ring, was purchased by Amazon and now sells a growing variety of smart home security and automation devices and related accessories.

Ring has chose to solve this problem by launching (if you'll forgive the pun) a flying indoor camera called the Always Home Cam.

In the clip above, Ring's security system detected an intruder, and the homeowner uses a smartphone app to fly the drone toward the offender - who, luckily, gets scared and runs off rather than swatting it to the floor.

Ring Always Home Cam will be available next year for $249. Some features will require a connection to Amazon Sidewalk, but Amazon tipped the ability to trigger a siren if you want to scare someone off.

Ring's mobile app shows a live stream from the Ring Car Cam. Another feature called Traffic Stop lets vehicle owners say "Alexa, I'm being pulled over" to trigger a recording.

And on October 8, it will release the Ring Mailbox Sensor ($29.99), which will alert you and start recording if it detects a mailbox has been opened. There is also a physical camera shutter. The Ring Car Cam retails at $199.99. Ring Car Alarm is a small $59.99 device that fits into your vehicle's OBD port, usually located under your steering wheel, and can use your car's computer to help detect impacts, break-ins, tows, and a slew of other events.

Building the drone was "no mean feat", according to founder Jamie Siminoff, adding that it was a challenge to integrate Ring's software and hardware teams to pull this off. This feature is available on the Model S, X, Y, and 3, protecting the auto from external threats silently.

"With this new line of auto products, we are taking Ring beyond the home, continuing to make neighborhoods safer", Ring founder Jamie Siminoff said in a blog post. "I couldn't be more excited to answer this call from our customers and I look forward to hearing how these new devices bring them peace of mind both at home and on the road".

The world's clean energy company and electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla, features security and safety features that give people the value for their money, particularly with the Sentry Mode that immediately detects threats and records for documentation purposes.
