Ring continues to be an innovator in the home security space. It recently added three new smart security cameras to its collection — each with a new feature bringing it a step above competitors. The Ring Video Doorbell 4, Video Doorbell Pro 2 and the Floodlight Wired Pro are upgraded versions of similar Ring products with added camera features providing more peace of mind and control of your home’s surveillance and security. Here’s a breakdown of each new camera.

Ring Floodlight Wired Pro

The Ring Floodlight Wired Pro is Ring’s latest release. It has few new features compared to the Ring’s Floodlight Cam. Like Ring’s original Floodlight Cam, Ring’s latest Floodlight Wired Pro includes 1080HD video, a siren and two LED floodlights. Both cameras are hardwired for power. 

But the new camera comes with a few nice-to-have upgraded features, including dual-band wifi, advanced two-way audio and brighter lights. The Floodlight Wired Pro illuminates with 2,000 lumens, while the Floodlight Cam uses 1,800 lumens. 

Ring also introduced a new feature with the latest floodlight camera called the Bird’s View to show a bird’s eye view of activity outside of your home. It includes a 3D motion detector with customizable activity zones within 30 feet of your home.

The Floodlight Wired Pro is currently available for $250.

Ring Video Doorbell 4

The Ring Video Doorbell 4 is the latest doorbell camera with a few unique features. The newest version has some of the same features as the Video Doorbell 3, including two-way audio, dual-band wifi and quick replies. Both versions of the video doorbell can also be hardwired. Plus, you’ll still have motion-triggered alerts, 1080p HD video and complete control of your camera with Amazon Alexa and the Ring mobile app. 

But the Ring Video Doorbell 4 brings along a new feature: color pre-roll video previews. You’ll be able to see all motion-triggered events in color, with an added four seconds of colored video before a motion is triggered. The Video Doorbell 3 only offered infrared black-and-white pre-roll video. The new feature gives Ring customers increased peace of mind and control when someone isn’t within range of motion detection.Ring is putting a spotlight on another standout feature: Quick Replies. If you’re busy, send a pre-recorded message that you’re unavailable.

The Ring Video Door 4 costs $200 and is currently available for pre-order on Ring’s website. 

Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2

The Video Doorbell Pro 2 is Ring’s most advanced doorbell camera option. It’s a step above other Ring cameras with 1563p HD video and upgraded audio. You’ll also get 3D motion detection and dual-band wifi, like with the Ring Floodlight Wired Pro. The camera also comes with Quick Replies and the Bird’s Eye View feature.

One new feature that sets the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 apart is the Head-to-Toe video for a full view of who’s at your door. Plus, Amazon Alexa greetings are available with a Ring Protect plan, so you can set a message to play for visitors automatically.

This Ring doorbell camera option also works with an existing doorbell chime. It is available for $250.

The Bottom Line

You can expect a lot more from Ring in the future. They’re becoming one of the most popular options in the home security and automation space. No matter which Ring camera you choose, you’ll get top-of-the-line features at an affordable cost. Best of all, you can add more smart features and video storage to all of Ring’s cameras using the Ring Protect plan starting at $3 per month — no contract required.
