Ring: Amazon's new device is a drone with a security camera

Η Amazon is ready to launch a new Ring security camera mounted on a flyer drone.

Always Home Cam, is a standalone indoor security camera that can fly into your home and capture shots from many angles. Users define a path that the device will follow throughout the house. When the device is not in the air, it locks into a dock that locks the camera, in an effort to avoid problems confidentiality.

Amazon unveiled the device during a virtual event on Thursday along with a number of new products. The company announced the upgraded Echo and Echo Show models, new Ring security cameras for cars and launched the streaming service video games, Luna.

Acquired by Amazon in 2018, Ring has been involved in many areas of the smart security market, launching home bells that connect to Internet and smart cameras that allow people to control their homes remotely.

Jamie Siminoff, founder of Ring, wrote in a post that Always Home Cam will allow people to monitor multiple areas of their home with a single device, instead of buying several cameras. The drone is connected to the Ring Alarm, the company's smart home security system. If the system detects suspicious activity, Always Home Cam automatically flies "to see what happens".


Ring devices have offered Amazon another way to attract customers by integrating the company's products security with the domestic helper Alexa. However, the company has faced privacy concerns following a dispute over Ring's decision to work closely with police to help investigate crimes. Lawmakers are increasingly scrutinizing the Ring over videos accessed by their employees.

Siminoff said the Always Home Cam was created for privacy and security. Ring said the device only records when it is in flight and its engines are powerful enough for users to hear it moving around the house.

"It cannot be controlled manually, ensuring that it will only record and see what is important to you," Siminoff added.

The Always Home Cam will be available in 2021 and will cost $ 250.
