The online retail giant unveiled the Ring Stick Up Cam at an event in Seattle on Thursday morning. The camera, which will sell for $180, comes in both wired and battery-powered versions for indoor and outdoor use.

"We have been blown away by Ring's work to reduce crime in neighborhoods," David Limp, Amazon's senior vice president of devices, said at the event. The Ring Stick Up Cam will be available by the end of this year, he said. 

The wired version is available for pre-order now at Ring.com and will start shipping on Oct. 18. The battery-powered Stick-Up cam will be available in December, an Amazon spokesperson said.

Amazon bought Ring earlier this year for a reported $1 billion.
