Ring announced several updates of its own. The Always Home Cam, the small drone that can fly around your home and check on activity, is now available via an invite. The flying camera will only record video when it's in the air, and the camera is covered whenever it's docked, making it impossible to capture any video. It's priced at $249.99.
Ring's new home security system, Ring Alarm Pro, is a modest update. The new system starts at $249.99 and begins shipping Nov. 3. The new model includes the ability to double as an Eero Wi-Fi 6 mesh router. Paying for the new $20 monthly Ring Protect Pro plan gets you online protection, 24/7 professional monitoring, and 24/7 internet backup in the event your connection fails at home. The Alarm Pro will provide a cellular connection — up to 3GB included — through the Eero system to your home.
Additionally, Ring also announced updates to its alerts, including package alerts and custom notifications for items you teach the cameras to monitor. Ring also partnered with third-party services for virtual video monitoring, which allows someone to view your video feeds when you're not home and deal with any would-be bad guys.
Finally, Ring also unveiled a partnership with Home Depot for the $399 Jobsite Security kit. Also available for the kit is a protective case, cameras, battery packs, and sensors. The kit can be set up to monitor and alert you of any activity on a job site using a cellular connection.
