Meet Ring's newest buzzer, the $199/£155/AU$299 Video Doorbell 2.

It has 1080p HD live streaming, night vision, a 160-degree field of view, two-way talk and an optional cloud storage service starting at $3 per month.

Unlike the Ring Video Doorbell and the Ring Video Doorbell Pro, this model comes with a removable, rechargeable battery.

If someone rings the doorbell -- or simply walks within range of the built-in motion sensor -- you'll get an alert on your phone.

The Ring Chime Pro, sold separately, adds an indoor chime (or supplements your existing one) and extends the doorbell's Wi-Fi range.
