The ring revealed that Always home cam, Its first home security drone, will soon arrive in selected families. The company has announced that users will soon be able to join an invitational testing program to help refine hardware before installing. In the United States, at least, ring owners can sign up for what its makers call a “very ambitious device.”
The Allings Home Cam was initially announced in September 2020 as part of a new kit from the ring. It was activated, when activated, to automatically patrol around your home so you can monitor your property while you are away. In addition, it can help unlock your stove, open a window or unlock the back door.
When it was launched, Ring tried to address privacy concerns that some users might have about drone technology. For example, the drone’s camera is obscured by its base station when it is not in flight and will issue an audible warning when recording it. Lucky users who are allowed to sign up to use one of these will be charged $ 250, but it’s not clear if you’ll get any benefits for the hardware beta-testing privilege.
