Home security cameras, which know how to track motion in a given area and notify the owner in case of detection of this motion is no longer surprised anyone. But the Ring company yesterday introduced a really amazing device of this kind.
It is called Always Home Cam, and it is that rare case, when from a normal name it is absolutely impossible to understand what kind of device. As always, better than a thousand words will explain everything to the video.
Yes, it is a flying camera or drone camera or just a home security drone. Of course, he does not know how to shoot the intruder at least something, but the idea is extremely busy anyway.
According to Ring herself, the task of Always Home Cam is to replace many ordinary surveillance cameras. If we are talking about a big house, sometimes you really need to install a lot of such cameras. In this case, only one camera is enough.
However, it can be assumed that Always Home Cam makes more sense if we evaluate it in terms of the psychological effect on the robber. It is not a fact that it will work, but there is a good chance that when the intruder enters an empty house, after that he will hear an incomprehensible noise and then he will see something flying, he will immediately retrieve. But otherwise, the drone can be easily damaged, and the ordinary cameras placed around the house robber may not notice.
But the Always Home Cam can also be used in “peacetime”. For example, you can check if someone forgot to close the window, turn off the stove or feed the cat. However, it is impossible to control the flight directly – the drone will fly on pre-programmed routes to the points specified in the application.
At the same time, Always Home Cam is a part of the Ring Alarm ecosystem that provides security. So, as shown in the video, you will have to buy other devices.
The drone itself does not cost as much as you might think – $250. Deliveries promised to start next year.
