Ring’s latest home security camera is a flying
vigilante — quite literally!
The latest Home Cam is an automatic drone that
flies inside your house to keep an eye on every room when you’re outside!
It means that you don’t have to install CCTV
cameras in each corner of your house.
When it gets low on battery, it automatically
lands on its charging dock to recharge and fly again… wow, why aren’t they
making smartphones with the same technology?!
The expected cost of this home drone is about
$249.99 by the time its shipping starts next year.
Jamie Siminoff, “chief

creates an audible noise when it’s recording the footage.
Ring says that the camera can be useful in so many
ways, from checking if the stove is left on or keeping an eye over your pet to
checking if a door is locked when you leave the home. It also has an obstacle

Worth to say this is by far Ring’s most promising
product yet, now let’s see if it actually works the same way as promised.
Though, you have to wait till the next year to figure this out…
