Last year, Amazon introduced a pretty crazy concept as far as home security is concerned, and that is the Ring Always Home Cam. This is essentially a home security video device attached to a drone which basically lets you monitor your entire home, versus regular home security cameras which can only monitor one room at a time.
The good news is that if you’re interested in the Always Home Cam, Amazon has announced that customers can purchase the system through an invitation program. It is currently only available in the US and customers will have to request an invite in order to purchase it, so there is a chance you may not be able to get your hands on it.
As a recap for those who are hearing about it for the first time, the Always Home Cam is a drone with a Ring video camera attached beneath it. Users can create a path that the drone can fly along. It will also work with other motion or contact sensors where if those sensors are triggered, the drone can take off and see what’s happening.
It won’t actually be smart enough to know where to fly to, so users will have to create their own flight paths ahead of time. The drone will dock inside of a box when it is not in use so you don’t have to worry about it spying on you. The Amazon Ring Always Home Cam is priced at $250 and you can sign up for an invite on the Ring website.
