Amazon just announced two new Ring home security cameras: A new Ring Stick Up Cam and a new Ring Indoor Cam. The tech giant made the announcement at the Amazon Devices Event in Seattle on Wednesday, along with a number of other announcements about new products and new features coming to their voice assistant, Alexa.
Similar to the previous Ring Stick Up Cam, the new Stick Up Cam runs off battery power. Customers also have the option to purchase a version of the camera plugs into a wall outlet, or customers can opt for a model that uses a solar-powered accessory. Much like the previous iteration, the new Stick Up Cam also works both indoors and outdoors. The device can withstand rain or shine, and is designed to hold up in various weather conditions. The new Stick Up Cam offers most of the same benefits as the previous model — it boasts 1080p HD video, two-way talk, it has motion detection with alerts, and it has crisp night vision. However, the major difference between the old Ring Cam and the new version is its price. The new Ring Stick Up Cam retails for 30 percent less than the previous version.
Another new offering, the Ring Indoor Camera, is a compact device that plugs into a wall outlet. When we say compact, we’re talking 1.81 inches by 2.95 inches without the stand. With such a small-sized camera, customers can choose to place it in a discreet location. The Ring Indoor Cam is Amazon’s most inexpensive security camera to date. But, in spite of its low cost, the camera doesn’t skimp on features, including specifications like HD video, two-way talk, night vision, and motion activated notifications. The Indoor Cam is also super-easy to mount and set up, and customers should be able to install the camera in less than 10 minutes.
Right now, you can. The Stick Up Cam Plug In is also available for $100, but the solar-powered version will set you back $149. If you want to go with the Indoor Cam, which is the best-priced model, you can order the .
