Ring’s Latest Devices Make the Most of Smart Home Security

Starting off 2020 in epic fashion, Ring branches out from doorbells and cameras with six new products with the sole intent to be your whole-hole security brand of choice.

The highlight of the announcement comes in the form of their Access Controller Pro, which allows users to remotely operate their access gats directly Live View in the Ring app while paired with either a Ring Video Doorbell or Cam. This is great if you are expecting Amazon deliveries and want to grant direct access inside your closed gate courtesy of Key by Amazon. Ring Access Controller Pro is available today on Ring.com and Amazon.com for $299. It will also be available as a bundle with the new Stick Up Cam Battery for $398.99 on Amazon.com.

Next, there’s the Ring Smart LED Lightbulbs, which is something I thought would come earlier from Ring. The LED bulbs now allow you to create security lights in and around your home, from the A19 Smart LED Bulb that will illuminate indoors, or the PAR38 Smart LED Bulb, which is good either outside or right in your living room.

These remotely turn on and off, or you can adjust the brightness from the app, on top of setting schedules to go off when the sun goes down. Ring Smart LED Lightbulbs will be available on Ring.com, Amazon.com and at The Home Depot on April 1, 2020.

If you’re a homeowner though, you’re really going to enjoy the Ring Smart Lighting Solar, which has three new solar-powered lighting systems. Each bringing specific functions you can create an affordable, easy-to-install network of motion-sensing lights that work from your entryway to your front door, your patio, and more.

Ring Solar Floodlight – Motion-activated smart light perfect for illuminating the driveway, yard, and walkways. The device features a combined 1,300 lumens, 45-foot maximum motion detection range, as well as adjustable mounts and settings.

Ring Solar Steplight – Motion-activated safety light that can illuminate stairs, decks and porches for brightened security where you need it most. When connected to the Ring Bridge, users can adjust brightness, motion sensitivity, and create custom light schedules, including dusk to dawn glow for continuous light that brightens when motion is detected.

Ring Solar Pathlight – Motion-activated smart light for walkways, driveways, and other high-traffic areas. Like the Ring Solar Steplight, when connected to the Ring Bridge, users can adjust brightness, motion sensitivity, and create custom light schedules, including dusk to dawn glow for continuous light that brightens when motion is detected.

Ring Smart Lighting Solar devices will be available on Ring.com, Amazon.com and at The Home Depot on April 1, 2020.
