Amazon announced today that it’s planning to release a new Ring Stick Up Camera. It’ll come in two versions: wired and battery-powered. The wired version includes an Ethernet port. It’ll be released in black and white and works both indoors and outside. It’s now available to preorder at Ring.com, Amazon, Best Buy, and Home Depot for $179.99. It’ll start shipping on October 18th.
Ring already sold a Stick Up Cam; this is just an update. The prior model also worked indoors and outdoors and could withstand temperatures between -5 degrees Fahrenheit and 120 degrees Fahrenheit. It also recorded 720p video and allowed for live streaming through the Ring app. The new cameras have an IPX5 waterproof rating, meaning they can handle rain, and they now record 1080p video.
This news follows Amazon’s acquisition of Ring earlier this year for reportedly more than $1 billion. In addition to the new hardware, Amazon also announced new home security features built around Ring, including Ring Alarm. This will allow people who buy a Z-Wave lock from Schlage, Yale, Kwikset, or Danalock to lock and unlock their doors from the Ring app. People using the Schlage Connect or Danalock locks can also disarm their Ring Alarm when they enter their lock’s code.
Update 9/21, 10:49 AM ET: Updated to include specs and release date details.
