While Amazon's Ring has a bad reputation among privacy advocates, the brand does have a nice line of home security solutions. The newest product in the Ring lineup is the Video Doorbell Wired, a new 1080p HD video model for those who are tired of having to recharge batteries. The Video Doorbell Wired does not have an integrated battery, instead it is wired to a transformer with a voltage of 8-24VAC. Amazon will start shipping the Video Doorbell Wired on February 24 for $59.99 (59.00EUR).
Ring, whose mission is to make neighborhoods safer, today announced Video Doorbell Wired, its smallest doorbell yet. Video Doorbell Wired packs a punch in a slim design with robust features such as HD video, two-way audio, live view, Advanced Motion Detection, Customizable Privacy Zones, and more.

“Since day one, Ring’s focus has been to invent home security solutions that solve real customer problems. With Video Doorbell Wired, we packed the features that matter into a small, compact design, giving customers more choice when it comes to selecting the Ring Video Doorbell that best fits their needs,” said Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s Founder and Chief Inventor. “And at only $59.99, Video Doorbell Wired is a great and affordable option for those just getting started or looking to expand their Rings of security.”

Reliable, Accessible Home Security
Full of features, Video Doorbell Wired is an easy-to-use, affordable solution that connects to existing doorbell wiring and includes everything needed to provide peace of mind when at home or away. Standard features available on Video Doorbell Wired include 1080p HD video with night vision and two-way audio with noise cancellation, offering a clear field of view and the ability to see and speak with visitors from anywhere. Customizable Motion Zones allow customers to create specific zones to trigger alerts and Privacy Zones can be set to eliminate areas a homeowner does not want to monitor. With those zones set, Advanced Motion Detection activates recording when movement is detected within a certain distance of Video Doorbell Wired, sending an alert to the Ring app.

Ring Protect Plan subscribers (starting at $3/month per device) can access additional features like color Pre-Roll, a six-second video preview that shows what triggered a motion alert at the door. Other features include People Only Mode, a refined motion alert sent only when human beings are detected, and Rich Notifications, which show a snapshot preview to see what’s happening in real time before opening the Ring app.

Simple Control in One App
Once installed, Video Doorbell Wired is easy to use and customers have complete control over their experience within the Ring app. Customers can set their notification preferences, create their Customizable Motion and Privacy Zones, and also quickly connect other Ring cameras, Ring Chimes, their Ring Alarm and Ring Smart Lights to create an integrated whole-home security system and monitor what’s happening from anywhere. Video Doorbell Wired is also compatible with Alexa. Simply say “Alexa, show me the front door,” to see Live View on your Alexa device or say “Alexa, talk to the front door,” to begin speaking with whoever is at the door.
