The new safety camera from Ring is a drone that flies inside your home

Ring’s new home surveillance camera actually takes off. The latest Always Home Cam is an autonomous drone that can fly inside your home to give you a view when you’re not home of any place you like.

The Always Home Cam returns to its dock to charge its battery until its finished travelling. When it begins selling next year, it is expected to cost $249.99.

The concept behind the Always Home Cam is to have various views in the home without needing the use of various cameras, says Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and ‘chief inventor.’

He said the company has spent the last two years working on the device’s growth, and that it is an “obvious product that is quite difficult to create.” The company is able to produce a product like this and have it function as expected thanks to advances in drone technology.

Features:

  • The Always Home Cam is fully autonomous, but owners can instruct it where it can go and what direction it can follow.
  • You make a map of your home for it to follow when you first get the unit, which helps you to ask it for unique perspectives, such as the kitchen or bedroom.
  • The drone can be commanded to fly on demand or programmed to fly when a disturbance is detected by a linked Ring Alarm system.
  • The drone can be commanded to fly on demand or programmed to fly when a disturbance is detected by a linked Ring Alarm system.
  • Ring explains that for basic items like testing whether a burner is left on or a window is left open, or if a door is closed while you are away from home, the camera can be used.
  • It features obstacle avoidance technology that allows obstacles in its path to be avoided and its veiled propellers prevent property damage or injuries to a pet or human that might interfere with the drone.
