New Ring Door View Smart Cam Sits Over Existing Peephole

Converts your Peephole into a Smart Cam

Amazon acquired security company Ring several months ago for over a billion dollars. Obviously home security is a concern for Amazon since their business requires front-door deliveries. They have even gone as far as offering smart locks in conjunction with actually allowing couriers inside the home.

Now Ring has come up with a new version of their door camera they are calling the Door View Cam. Unlike the older version which is basically a smart doorbell, the Door View Cam sits directly on top of your door’s peephole. It is actually made of two pieces, once of which sits outside while the other is on the opposite side. Best of all, there are no wires and installation is just  a matter of placing it on top of the peephole.

It completely runs off of batteries in the indoor side plate. Users can still use the peephole as a regular “analog” viewer, but when enabled, users can also see visitors remotely via the Ring smartphone app. Furthermore, the Door View Cam has sensors which can detect if somebody is knocking and can send notifications to your phone.

How Much is the Ring Door View Cam?

There are no firm launch dates for the Ring Door View Cam just yet. Although the company states that it will be out sometime “later this year” for $199 USD.
