Ring introduces next-generation battery-powered video doorbells
Ring, whose mission is to make neighbourhoods safer, unveiled its new, next-generation Video Doorbell, Ring Video Doorbell 3. With improved motion detection and enhanced dual-band wifi, alongside the features Ring users know, love and trust, including a 1080p HD camera and two-way talk, Ring Video Doorbell 3 is the latest addition to Ring’s Video Doorbell lineup. Ring 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 Ring 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.”
Next generation video doorbell
Ring 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 Ring Video Doorbell 3’s Live View, or say, “Alexa, answer the front door,” to begin speaking with whoever is at their door. And with Linked Devices, available across all Ring products, users can link their doorbell to compatible Ring Cams to create an integrated, whole-home security system.
Hear alerts loud and clear
The newly designed Ring Chime and Chime Pro provide customers with audible notifications throughout their homes; and Chime Pro includes a built-in nightlight, as well as a wifi extender to improve and expand wifi connectivity across users’ Ring Doorbells and Cams. Both new Chime devices are compatible with all Ring 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.
Home security you can control
Privacy, security, and control are foundational to Ring. Ring 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 Ring’s Doorbells and Cams, Ring Video Doorbell 3 features toggles that allow users to turn off video or audio recording for an extra layer of privacy, at any time.
Pricing and availability
Ring Video Doorbell 3, Chime and Chime Pro will be available for purchase in June 2020, from Amazon.ae, Jumbo, Sharaf DG, and Virgin Megastore for AED839, AED139, and AED239.
