The $199 kit is available from Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Ring.com, and it will begin shipping on July 4.

For $199 each, the Alarm starter kit will include a base station, keypad, contact sensor for a window or door, motion detector, and a range extender. The base station has a battery backup and an LTE cellular backup connection.

Ring's first product was a video doorbell that helped users monitor motion and doorbell rings using a smartphone. Since then, the company's product lineup has expanded to include solar-powered cameras and other home monitoring products. With Alarm, Ring comes full circle on its goal of helping customers feel secure in their home.

Ring Alarm will cost $10 per month for 24/7 monitoring and unlimited cloud storage for all Ring cameras.

The company also has more components for the Alarm system, including a smoke/CO detector, smoke/CO listener, and a and freeze sensor.

Ring first announced Alarm, which was called Protect at the time, in October 2017. The product was delayed after a lawsuit with ADT, which has since been settled.
