Protect Your Vehicle With Ring Car Cam
Amazon has been a reliable source of home security solutions. Soon, it will expand that protection to automobiles with Ring Car Cam.
It works like regular car cameras, except it can record and sense a vehicle’s interior. Moreover, it can execute voice commands and connect to the internet.
US customers may now preorder the Ring Car Cam on Ring.com and Amazon.com. It will cost $249.99, but it will be available for $199.99 during the preorder period.
What are the features of Ring Car Cam?
The Ring Car Cam records video footage of the outside and inside of your car. Moreover, it has smart sensors that detect specific events like break-ins.
Once it identifies a potential issue, it will start recording and send you a real-time alert on your Ring app. Then, you may open the app to see what is happening.
The vehicle camera has a built-in mic and speaker that lets you speak with anyone in the car via smartphone.
It could help warn a potential intruder to step away from your vehicle. Also, you could use the Ring Car Cam to guide your kid when he or she is driving your car.
The device has a unique feature called Traffic Stop. Say, “Alexa, record,” and the Ring Car Cam will record several minutes of real-time footage.
The feature works even if you park your car. As a result, it comes in handy if someone pulls you over or collides with your vehicle.
The Cam can connect to your Wi-Fi, but you may add LTE connectivity with the optional Ring Protect Go subscription.
That plan also lets you save footage via cloud storage for 180 days. The Cam plugs into your vehicle’s battery with its OBD-II port and blends with your dashboard.
More importantly, the Ring Car Cam protects privacy by flashing an LED light whenever it is recording. As a result, you do not have to worry about it capturing footage without your permission.
Ring Protect Go also offers end-to-end video encryption to secure your recordings. It costs $6 monthly or $60 annually.
Amazon will offer its first car security solution named the Ring Car Cam. At the time of writing, only customers in the United States can preorder the product.
If the “Ring” brand sounds familiar, you may have seen its home security products like video doorbell cameras.
