Earlier this year Amazon announced that they would be acquiring smart doorbell maker Ring. For those unfamiliar with Ring, they created a smart doorbell that also comes with a built-in camera that allows users to see who is outside and control it via their smartphone via an accompanying app.
Given Amazon’s increasing interest in the home, it didn’t come as a surprise. Now it looks like Amazon has expanded on Ring’s lineup with two new cameras: the Ring Stick Up Cam Wired and the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery. As their names imply, one of the cameras will be a wired model that will need to be plugged in, while the other will be a more portable version that can be placed anywhere and runs on batteries, and have been designed to be used indoors and outdoors respectively.
They will also support power over internet which gives users another way of powering the devices. In terms of functionality, but cameras will come with the same features, such as motion detection, 1080p Full HD resolution video, night vision, two-way talk, a siren, and is also expected to be able to play nicely with other Amazon devices like the Ring alarm and Alexa.
The Ring Stick Up Cam Wired will be launched on the 18th of October and will be priced at $180 is available for pre-order via Ring’s website. The Battery version is only expected to be available in December. These announcements were made alongside new Amazon Echo/Alexa products which also included an Alexa-enabled microwave.
