Ring Unveils Its New, Affordable Indoor Cam That Totally Won't Freak Out Your Friends and Family

By Shabana Arif on at

Forget about hiding cameras in stuffed bears to spy on your guests - Ring's new indoor-only cam has a bunch of swanky features and an affordable price tag for those who take indoor and outdoor security seriously.

The new Ring Indoor Camera is just £49 and hits Europe next year, although it's available in the US right now so you'll find plenty of reviews over the next few weeks if you're wondering whether to pick one up for your own house.

Features include 1080p HD video, night vision, two-way talk, and motion-activated recording, as well as a privacy feature that allows you to disable the motion and audio recording from your Ring App. If you get paranoid about whether or not the device is watching you, the camera has an indicator light to let you know when it's recording or in Live View.

Ring says you can mount the indoor cam pretty much anywhere in your house, but while it is compact, it's not that small. Your guests are still going to see it, so you might want to give people a heads up when they visit because they might not want to be recorded when popping round for a cuppa.

If you're after something more versatile, Ring has added a second new camera to its range with the Stick Up Cam for both indoor and outdoor use. There are three variants available with different price points; the plug-in and battery options are both £89, while the solar-powered option is £120. Features include 1080p HD video, motion detection, night vision, two-way talk, and a wide viewing angle.

The Stick Up Cam is up on Amazon for pre-order with an October 23 launch date.

The app is also getting an overhaul in November with the Modes feature that - you guessed it = adds new modes. Home Mode allows you to disable motion and Live View for your indoor cameras, while your outdoor cameras stay active; Away Mode activates your Ring Doorbell and cameras for when you go out, and Disarmed Mode lets you deactivate all of your Ring devices.

So you can really go all out with your home security.
