Ring shows a flying indoor security camera

One of the downsides of security cameras is that they have a fixed position. Some models offer a degree of adjustability by allowing you to rotate the camera, but now Amazon's Ring offers a compelling new product.

Called the Always Home Cam, this is a combination of an autonomously flying drone and a security camera. It will allow users to monitor their entire home without requiring multiple cameras. When the inspection is done, the camera returns to its dock to recharge. When first installed, the Always Home Cam will require you to build a map of your home so you can give it instructions for specific viewpoints. Besides being able to control the path it takes, the camera is also fully autonomous. When a different Ring device detects a disturbance, the Always Home Cam can take off to investigate the issue.

This indoor-only camera records 1080p HD video and integrates with Ring Alarm. The only downside perhaps is that it can only record in-flight. The dock blocks the camera so you can't use it when it's not flying. Ring's Always Home Cam is expected to hit the market next year for $249.99.
Ever feel like you left the door unlocked, or forgot to turn off the stove? Do you receive a Ring Alarm alert and immediately want to see what’s happening? The Ring Always Home Cam is here to help. This compact, lightweight, autonomously flying indoor camera gives even greater visibility when you’re not home.
