Ring Has Introduced a New Camera. This Is a Drone That Flies Over the User’s Home

Ring has intro­duced a new secu­ri­ty cam­era — Always Home Cam (“a cam­era that is always at home”). This is a small drone that flies around the user’s home and can also fly out­side of it to remote­ly show what is hap­pen­ing around it. The user con­trols it using the appli­ca­tion. This device can be a replace­ment for stan­dard secu­ri­ty cam­eras.

With Always Home Cam, the user can see every cor­ner of their home in real time with­out hav­ing to move. In addi­tion, the device can be taught to fly around the house accord­ing to the map on which the device is trained. After com­plet­ing its flight, the drone returns to its dock­ing sta­tion to charge. Ring will start sell­ing the cam­era at the end of 2020, it will cost $259.

The com­pa­ny explained that the main idea of ​​the drone is to pro­vide many dif­fer­ent view­ing angles at home with­out the need to pur­chase dozens of cam­eras.

When installing the Always Home Cam drone for the first time, the user will need to down­load the Ring app, which can map the home and its sur­round­ings. You can set a sched­ule for vis­it­ing indi­vid­ual rooms or fly­ing out­side the house. Or it can be con­trolled man­u­al­ly direct­ly from the app.

The drone only records video while in flight, so it will not secret­ly mon­i­tor the user. You can set up a drone to fly around your home while you’re away. In the event of a home inva­sion, an alarm will sound and a drone will fly to the loca­tion of the break-in to scare the thief.
