The Ring Always Home Cam is a security drone that can patrol the home. However, buying one is not quite as simple as adding to an Amazon cart.
Amazon‘s Ring Always Home Cam is now officially available to buy, but picking one up is not going to be as easy as the company’s other smart home products. While many want security cameras in their home, some might not want a camera that’s potentially invading their privacy throughout the day. Amazon’s drone camera is designed to be a product that offers the best of both worlds.
The Always Home Cam was announced last year. Described as a small autonomous indoor camera, it is basically a security drone that can fly to points of interest if another Ring device detects intrusion. The camera will also do a security sweep – for lack of a better phrase – on command, providing reassurance that everything is exactly as it should be. As a means to ensure privacy, the Always Home Cam can’t see anything when docked. The drone can only record and stream video after it has taken off.
