Ring Unveils Gate Access Control Device at CES 2020
The professionally installed Ring Access Controller Pro allows users to remotely view a locked gate and unlock it to allow entrance.
The Ring Access Controller Pro marks the company’s entry into the access control space. The hardwired, professionally installed device allows users to remotely operate their electronically-controlled gate directly from their Ring App. Paired with a Ring Video Doorbell or Cam, users can open their live view, confirm who is at the gate and securely let them in from the app.
The controller also allows users to receive secure Amazon deliveries inside their gate via the Key by Amazon program. Ring Access Controller Pro is available now and will also be bundled with the new Stick Up Cam Battery.
Also at CES 2020, Ring is announcing its first-ever Smart LED Lightbulbs that are said to create a complete network of security lights in and around the home. The lightbulbs come in two styles and will be available April 1.
First, the screw-in A19 and PAR38 models are controlled by the Ring Bridge central hub, allowing users to remotely turn their lights on and off, adjust the brightness and set schedules from the Ring app. When linked with other Ring security devices with motion sensors, the A19 and PAR38 can be set to turn on when motion is detected.
The other lightbulb offering — named Ring Smart Lighting Solar — comprises three new solar-powered devices: Solar Floodlight, Solar Steplight and Solar Pathlight. Each of the outdoor models are motion-activated and can be connected to the Ring app and Ring Bridge to provide notifications when the light has been turned on.
All of the new lightbulb products will be available on Ring.com, Amazon.com and at The Home Depot.
