Ring's latest video doorbell doesn't require drilling or permanent modifications

Ring's latest video doorbell doesn't require drilling or permanent modifications

Ring Door View Cam installs directly on the front door, smartening up your peephole.

At CES 2019, it not only announced a new video doorbell that should expand its audience, but it also launched an all-new line of smart lights created to offer more security for homes.

Ring says that the Door View Cam will be available in the USA and United Kingdom, as well as a few other European countries later this year for $199 / £179 - this works out at around AU$280 based on current conversion rates, but so far the company hasn't released any official pricing or release schedule for Australia.

Watch out, Philips: Ring has entered the smart lighting space. Peepholes are centered in the middle of the door, in ideal line of visitors.

Rounding out the product list is a new series of lighting gear, including a $70 wall-mounted floodlight and a $30 path light.

As with the other video doorbells from Ring, the Door View Cam lets you see who is at your door via your smartphone, even if you are away from your home.

Like the Ring Doorbell 2, the new peephole camera offers motion detection and streams 1080p video straight to your phone via the Ring app, as well as allowing you to talk to whoever is standing on your doorstep.

The Door View Cam will launch in the USA, as well as selected European markets, at some point later in the year, with prices starting at $199.

Ring said you can get notifications when motion is detected, and you can easily program the lights to kick on and Ring cameras to simultaneously start recording should motion be detected. Ezviz, Remo+ and Yale have announced similar products. They include a flood and freeze sensor, a smoke and carbon monoxide "listener" and a dome siren - all optional accessories to accompany Ring's Alarm security system.

It is also introducing smart lock integration with triggering functionality. So, you can add smart locks to the Alarm system, and when a smart lock is locked, it can activate Alarm. Ring will also begin selling three third-party smart locks directly on its website.
