LAS VEGAS — Amazon-owned Ring today unveiled a slate of new products, including a front door camera, smart lighting options and refreshed versions of other products such as smoke detectors.
Ring unveiled a total of 13 new and refreshed products Monday at CES, including several items that customers have been clamoring for. The most notable is the Ring Door View Cam, a wireless doorbell that installs on top of the peephole or door viewer and can detect when people knock.
Priced at $199 and available later this year in the U.S., Door View Cam is Ring’s fifth video doorbell. It could have wider appeal than previous Ring offerings because it can be installed quickly on any front door, creating a new option for those who didn’t have the right set up at their doors to install one of the other video doorbells.
“As we continue on our mission of reducing crime in neighborhoods, we want everyone with a front door to have the ability to protect their property and prevent crime from taking place,” Ring CEO Jamie Siminoff said in a statement. “We’ve heard from countless customers over the years who want to secure their front door with a Ring Doorbell but are not able to install one of our existing doorbells. With the addition of Door View Cam, we are unlocking peace of mind for every customer.”
In addition to Door View Cam, Ring also introduced a series of smart lighting offerings, ranging in price from $17.99 to $99.99. Available in March, the eight new smart lighting offerings wired, battery-powered and low voltage options.
In addition to these new products, Ring is also updating smoke alarms/carbon monoxide detectors, a burglary alarm, a flood sensor and more.
Amazon acquired Ring last year for a reported price tag of more than $1 billion. Amazon’s digital assistant Alexa is deeply integrated with the new Door View Cam.
Users will be able to ask some Alexa-powered devices to “show me my front door,” and receive real-time motion detection alerts. Users will be able to talk to people at the door on devices like Echo Show, Echo Spot and Alexa-enabled tablets.
