You certainly cannot accuse Ring of not developing new products, as it has today announced the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro and yet another new doorbell, the Ring Video Doorbell 4.
Designed to replace the existing ring floodlight cams, the new model has to be put in place (no battery options at the moment) but it also adds some new technology. First up is 3D motion detection, which was announced with the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2. It uses radar so that you can optimize motion detection based on distance, which can ignore events outside your property or set limits.
It then works with Birds Eye View, which shows you a top-down map of your location and where the speed events have occurred, as well as the path visitors are taken to reach your property. The combination of the two characteristics should give more information about what happened and why an event started.
Otherwise, the Floodlight cam is identical to the older version with two adjustable lights, which you can indicate where you want them, and full HD video resolution. You can buy the new Floodlight Cam in the coming months for £ 219.
Another new camera
The Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus was launched only last year, but there is already a new model, the Ring Video Doorbell 4. This battery-powered model has the same pre-roll technology as last year’s doorbell, where you get four seconds of low-resolution. The video before an event was triggered to give you more context. While last year’s camera had a black and white pre-roll, the video doorbell 4 had a color pre-roll. Otherwise, the new model is identical to the old one.
You can purchase the Ring Video Doorbell 4 from May 5 for £ 179. We will conduct a full review of both products in the coming months.
