Amazon’s Ring has recently launched its latest video doorbell. It carries the name, which is very simple, i.e. Ring Video Doorbell. Interesting thing is that Ring Video Doorbell is its smallest and cheapest video doorbell.
Notably, Ring has launched its new video doorbell for a price of $60 ($59.99 to be exact). The affordable Ring Video Doorbell is available now for preorder and will begin shipping from February 24, 2021.
While the Ring Video Doorbell includes a bunch of new features, as you might have guessed from the price, there are some cut-offs. Apparently, it can only be used as a hard-wired doorbell.
Its pricier siblings, like the Ring Doorbell 3 or the Ring Video Doorbell, which is priced at $99.99, come with a battery-powered option. But that is a trade-off you can live with if your budget is tight and you want something from Ring.
Now, moving our attention to the features of the $60 Ring Video Doorbell, as per The Verge, two-way audio, live streaming, advanced motion detection, motion and privacy zones, night vision, etc.
Moreover, users can also opt for a $3 /month subscription service. This subscription service offers a better notification system and also different video storage options.
The new Ring Video Doorbell Wired also supports and works with other smart home devices
Though the no option of batteries may be a trade-off for some, the Ring Video Doorbell wired also works with other smart home devices. This includes Alexa supported Amazon Echo speakers and displays, lights, and alarms. That’s a plus!
The new video doorbell comes at a compact form factor and also don’t forget the cheap price. This is the first security device from Ring that is priced below the $100 mark.
Besides, it seems like Ring has launched its $60 wired Video Doorbell to take on with the $30 Wyze Video Doorbell. The Wyze Video Doorbell was launched the last month.
However, the Wyze Video Doorbell was found to be faulty and not up to the mark when it was actually tested. So, as a reliable option, Ring’s new wired video doorbell is a good option.
Note that Ring, the Amazon-owned company, has been through its fair share of controversies. At the beginning of this month, a bug was reported that exposed users’ precise locations and addresses via the Neighbors app.
As already mentioned, Ring has started taking pre-orders on its official website, and also on Amazon’s website. It costs only $60 online, and the price is the same at Home Depot stores as well.
It will start shipping from February 24, 2021, whereas it will arrive at other stores starting March 26.
