Ring's Door View Cam is a smart doorbell that replaces your peephole at CES 2019
This is the door view cam, it is Ring's new $199 smart doorbell.
Ring already has a lot of smart door bells, but you might notice something a little different about this one, it's mounted to the center of the door.
So unlike their other products which are designed to replace Traditional existing hardwired doorbells on the side of your door on your door frame or next to your door.
This one is designed to replace your people.
So it doesn't completely replace your people.
There's still a spot here where you can look through the back of your door and see who's there physically while you're standing.
But it also has a built-in camera just like its other model, so someone comes up, they press the button.
It's also motion activated, so if someone isn't actually pressing the button but motion is detected then you actually get a push alert on your phone that says someone's at the front door.
Then you can pull it up and just like rings other buzzers- You can talk to the person, tell them to go away, tell them to leave the package under your front door mat, anything like that, just like the other models.
But the idea with this is is that it's a less invasive installation.
So it's designed more for apartment dwellers or anyone who doesn't want to deal with electrical wiring.
Or messing up their door frame.
So again, this is Ring's new Door View Cam and it's 199 bucks and it will be available later this year.
