When Amazon acquired the Ring company last year, many people easily sniffed at the plans behind the acquisition. Ring is a company that made smart doorbell and equipped it with a camera and is connected to a smartphone. Last month the company is releasing a new variant of Ring Stick Up Cam to their exclusive lineup.
From the nomenclature it carried, it’s also easy to know that this unique device still uses the name of the previous generation. But a number of updates are pinned given that Amazon now has a share in designing technology in it.
Under Amazon’s control, the latest model of Stick Up Camera has a cylindrical body casing – basically, the case has the same shape as the Echo speakers that are popular on Amazon and the Echo Sub which has just announced – and comes with two color variants: black and white.
Designed flexibly for indoor and outdoor, the device has almost the same functionality, such as cameras with the ability to detect motion, resolution up to 1080p FHD, night vision, two-way communication, sirens and a new addition to the ability to connect to other new Amazon devices such as Alarm Ring and Alexa.
Users can also stream video in real time from the Ring in smartphone application to check what’s happening around the house and with two-way audio communication, the stream now has a crystal-clear HD display.
The previous generation, Ring Stick Up Cam can withstand temperatures between -5 degrees Fahrenheit and 120 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s quite bearable, but unfortunately Amazon hasn’t revealed whether they are getting an increase in endurance or not.
Two Available Version
In addition to the two colors, the Ring Stick Up Camera has two versions: a cable version that is connected to an outlet and has a Power of Ethernet (POE) and with a battery that can be placed in a location far from electricity.
Both can be used in indoor and outdoor, but battery-powered models are equipped with a rechargeable battery pack that is easily removable and recharged. Amazon has not provided details about the duration of battery usage.
Ring Stick Up Cam Wired version is scheduled to hit the market on October 18 at prices around $ 180, while the new Ring Stick Up Cam Battery model follows in December with the same price tag.
