Ring updates its home security at CES 2018
New lights, alarms and the oddly named Stick Up cameras added to Ring's security arsenal.
Ring has announced a slew of new home security products at CES 2018 designed to extend its existing range of lights, video door bells and security cameras it already sells in multiple markets, including Australia.
For a company with a security focus, it's taken the unusual step of calling several of the products "Stick Up", although this relates not to robbery but instead the method by which you affix these new security devices around your home.
The Stick Up Cam and Stick Up Cam Elite will use either Wi-Fi or Power Over Ethernet connectivity to talk to Ring's servers, while also providing 1080p video and two-way audio features, designed for either inside or outside usage. The Elite version features more advanced motion detection than the regular Stick Up Cam, and both will work with Ring's existing apps and services.
Ring also announced Ring Beams, a set of Internet-enabled smart sensor LED lights designed for smaller use spaces than the existing spotlight and floodlight products. Ring Beams will come in multiple form factors, including pathway lights, step lights and spotlights.
Coming later in the year, Ring will also launch the Ring Alarm, an alarm system with multiple modules including a base station, keypad, contact sensors and Z-Wave extenders for home security services. Pricing on the Ring Alarm will start at $289, but that's not including the professional monitoring solution that Ring will also launch in Australia later this year.
