The launch of the Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus addresses some pain points and improvements over the previous versions.
Not surprisingly the Battery Video Doorbell Plus offers the highest HD resolution of any Ring battery doorbell, but it even comes with a battery life that is up to three times better than Ring’s first doorbell.
Ring’s head-to-toe 150×150-degree expanded field of view makes features like Package Alerts with a Ring Protect subscription even more useful, as users can check on deliveries on their doorstep and receive notifications as soon as a package is detected within a specified zone. At 1536p, Ring’s highest HD resolution, Battery Video Doorbell Plus provides the clearest and crispest view of everything happening at a user’s front door.
“When we first imagined the video doorbell concept more than 10 years ago, we knew that choosing a battery power source would meet the needs of the widest variety of customers possible. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus, the most significant update yet to our battery-powered family, with energy-saving features resulting in a battery life that is up to three times better than our first Ring Video Doorbell,” said Jason Mitura, Ring Chief Product Officer.
Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus still includes the features users know and trust. Customisable Motion Zones let users specify where the device detects motion, while Privacy Zones can exclude areas from the camera’s field of view for added privacy. Users can also set up Quick Replies to preset responses for visitors when users are not available to answer the door, and use Live View and Two-Way Talk to speak to people in real time.
Like other devices in Ring’s range, Battery Video Doorbell Plus is compatible with Alexa, so users can see, hear and speak to visitors through an Echo or Fire TV device. It also has a quick-release, rechargeable battery pack, and the ability to connect to a Ring solar panel for non-stop power.
Battery Video Doorbell Plus gives users a full range of privacy options to protect personal information and videos including video End-to-End Encryption.
