With the mission to create a security circle around your home, Ring, inventor of the smart doorbell, launched the first wire-free, stick up, outdoor security camera at CES Pepcom 2016.
Jamie Siminoff, inventor and CEO of Ring, said the company’s “mission is to reduce crime in communities and put a ring of security around your home.”
The companion device is an outdoor, self-install with a 5,200 mAh internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery that you can stick up anywhere around your house. The camera features a two-way audio, motion detection, cloud HD video recording and night vision, similar to the doorbell. The device can also be controlled through the same Ring app and is available on IOS, Android and Windows 10 (desktop) devices.
