Ring Announces Next-Gen Battery-Powered Video Doorbell
Ring Video Doorbell 3 includes Privacy Zones, which allow users to black out portions of the camera’s field-of-view from recording, and audio/motion detection toggles to disable recording as needed.
Ring has unveiled its new, next-generation Video Doorbell, Ring Video Doorbell 3. With improved motion detection and enhanced dual-band wifi, alongside the features users know, love and trust, including a 1080p HD camera and two-way talk, Ring Video Doorbell 3 is the latest addition to the company’s Video Doorbell lineup. Ring has also announced the redesigned Ring Chime and Chime Pro for users who want to hear their Ring notifications inside their homes. All three new devices will be available for purchase in June.
“At Ring, we are continuously pushing the boundaries on bringing the most innovative devices and features to our customers,” said Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s Founder and Chief Inventor. “Now, with near zone, users can receive the alerts they care most about. With the Video Doorbell 3 and the all-new Chime and Chime Pro, we’re excited to continue bringing customers even more choice when it comes to their home security options, while keeping user privacy and control front and centre.”
The Video Doorbell 3 builds upon the great features of the Ring Video Doorbell 2 to now also include a new, adjustable motion zone, called near zone, that can detect motion within five to 15 feet of the front door, as well as enhanced dual-band 2.4Ghz/5Ghz wifi for improved connectivity. With Alexa compatibility, users can simply say, “Alexa, show me the front door,” to see their Video Doorbell 3’s Live View, or say, “Alexa, answer the front door,” to begin speaking with whoever is at their door. Users can also link their doorbell to compatible Ring Cams to create an integrated, whole-home security system.
The newly designed Chime and Chime Pro provide customers with audible notifications throughout their homes; and Chime Pro includes a built-in nightlight, as well as a Wi-Fi extender to improve and expand Wi-Fi connectivity across users’ Ring Doorbells and Cams. Both new Chime devices are compatible with all the company’s Doorbells and Cams and provide real-time audio notifications when a Ring device detects motion, or when someone rings the doorbell, ensuring users never miss a moment.
The new Video Doorbell 3 includes Privacy Zones, which allow users to exclude areas of the camera field of view from video recording. Similar to all of the firm’s Doorbells and Cams, the new Video Doorbell 3 features toggles that allow users to turn off video or audio recording for an extra layer of privacy, at any time.
