Ring, the maker of connected doorbell, has just announced a new Floodlight Cam aimed at replacing your standard outdoor wired floodlight, with a built-in 100db siren. The Ring Floodlight Cam also includes HD 1080p video recording and streaming capabilities, cloud video storage, 270-degree motion detection, a microphone and speaker for intercom functions.
“The Ring Floodlight Cam is designed to improve on the safety features of the traditional motion-activated outdoor light, which at this point is probably not fooling many would-be burglars into thinking someone’s definitely home. The added connective features are essentially what you get with the Ring Stick-Up Cam, but the siren is new, and another added deterrent, and the ability to wire it directly into your existing floodlight outlet is also a plus”.
The light can also be turned on remotely via the Ring app, in addition to automatically turning on in response to motion or on a timed schedule.
The device retails for US $249 directly from Ring, with pre-orders starting today.
