Ring Announces New Improved Video Doorbell For $99 With A $49 Solar Charger
Ring has announced a new Video Doorbell as a replacement for the one that was announced way back in 2014. The new camera comes with a 1080p video, better night vision than before, and new support for motion sensing zones for an impressive $99.99.
But that isn’t all. Ring has also announced a new solar charger that will sell for $49, allowing users to keep their doorbell fully charged without having to mess around recharging the batteries themselves.
If the Ring Video Doorbell sounds familiar it’s because it’s similar to the Video Doorbell 2 that has now been discontinued.
That sold for $200, so being able to get similar technology and capabilities for half the price isn’t something to be sniffed at. The Video Doorbell 3 is still around though, complete with improved motion tracking.
You can’t get your hands on one of these new doorbells just yet, though. Pre-orders are available via Amazon or Ring’s official website at that $99.99 asking price. Shipping should begin from June 3rd, but you’ll have to wait even longer for the $49 Solar Charger though – it won’t come until some point in July.
When Ring first announced the Video Doorbell in 2014 it was the only option for those who wanted a smart doorbell. Things aren’t quite so clear cut anymore though – competition is strong. This level of capability for $99.99 is a good start.
