Ring’s catalog is growing a bit larger this month with the arrival of the Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam on May 30. This marks the first time the company has released an integrated pan-tilt camera, and for shoppers seeking a device that can capture all corners of their room, it should be an enticing option.

Using the Ring app, you can control the viewing angle of the Pan-Tilt Cam remotely. Its motorized base can swivel up or down and pan left or right, allowing you to move the camera as you see fit. That allows for 360-degree horizontal coverage and 169-degree vertical tilt coverage. Ring says it designed the camera to deal with a variety of common situations experienced by its customers — such as scanning a living room to check on a pet or attempting to monitor multiple doorways and windows throughout the home.

The camera supports HD video along with the usual suite of Ring mobile app features, including Live View, two-way audio, and customizable motion alerts. Of course, you’ll need to sign up for a Ring Protect Plan to get the most out of the camera, with plans starting at $5 per month. Another nice touch is the built-in privacy shutter, which can be manually closed to disable both audio and video. The Pan-Tilt Cam is available in a variety of colors, such as black, white, blush, charcoal, and starlight.

While the Ring Pan-Tilt Cam won’t start shipping until May 30, preorders are now open for the black or white models, and they carry a price tag of $80. Ring notes that the blush, charcoal, and starlight models will be available soon, though a specific date is yet to be revealed.

This won’t be the only pan-tilt security camera when it becomes available, with the old Blink Mini Indoor Pan-Tilt Camera remaining a great option for frugal shoppers at just $40. It’ll be interesting to see how the $80 Ring Pan-Tilt Cam stacks up to the competition when it arrives later this month.

When it comes to home security, a good camera is worth its weight in gold. Unless a camera is reliable, captures clear pictures, and can send you alerts about your property, there's no reason to add it to your security system. One feature that makes security cameras extra appealing is their ability to rotate or swivel. This allows you to pan it around your home and get a 360-degree look at its surroundings.

The Ring Stick Up Cam Pro is undoubtedly one of the best security cameras, but can it rotate? Or will you be stuck looking in one spot without the option to remotely pan its viewing angle? Here's everything you need to know about whether the Ring Stick Up Cam Pro can rotate.

Anyone shopping for a DIY home security system has probably stumbled upon Ring. The company has an ever-growing lineup of cameras and video doorbells that are consistently ranked among the best available -- and since they're easy to set up and offer tons of functionality, it's no surprise they're so popular.

One thing to keep in mind when looking at Ring products is that you'll be on the hook for more than just the sticker price. Ring offers a monthly subscription service known as Ring Protect. Many of the best features for its cameras and video doorbells are locked behind this subscription plan, meaning owners who don't sign up will be missing out on important functionality.
