Ring is best known for its Ring Video Doorbell, a $199 Wi-Fi-enabled buzzer with a built-in 720p high-definition camera.
While the doorbell offers some security for folks who want to watch over their front door, it doesn't have live streaming, which makes it tough to check in on what's happening 24/7.
But the startup is back with something new -- the Stick Up Cam, a $199 DIY outdoor security camera that can act as a standalone sentry or work in concert with existing Ring Video Doorbells. (UK and Australian details weren't available, but $199 converts to around £135 or AU$280.)
Here's a snapshot of the Stick Up Cam's features:
- Battery-powered (no wired option available, unlike the Video Doorbell)
- Two-way talk via built-in speaker and microphone
- Cloud storage
- High-definition resolution
- Night vision
The Stick Up Cam isn't the first outdoor camera we've come across, but its wireless setup is fairly unusual. Netgear's Arlo cameras, rated for both indoor and outdoor use, are also battery-powered. The main difference is that Arlo cams rely on AA batteries, whereas Ring's new model is rechargeable.
Ring's new Stick Up Cam is on display at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, so we'll be updating this post with hands-on photos and video in short order. Stay tuned.
