Release date: 2021
Amazon-owned Ring announced a new line of security cameras for cars: The new $199 Car Cam, $60 Car Alarm, and the Car Connect system, which all integrate with the Ring app.
The Car Alarm plugs into your car's OBD-II diagnostic port and sends alerts to your phone. It has a built-in siren that can be remotely triggered, or it can link to other Ring or Alexa devices to emit audible alerts when an event is detected.
As for the Car Cam, it is Ring's first camera for outside of the home and has the ability to record both inside and outside of the car when mounted on a dashboard. Like the Car Alarm, the Car Cam can send alerts. It requires either Wi-Fi or LTE for connectivity.
If your car already has cameras, then Ring developed the Car Connect platform. Ring says it's working with many automotive makers to build support for the system, but the first partnership it's announcing is with Tesla Model 3, X, S, and Y (when Sentry Mode is enabled).
