Ring Launches Video Doorbell Pro 2 With 3D Motion Detection, ‘Bird’s Eye View’
Utilizing radar technology, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 can allow homeowners to pinpoint when and where a motion event begins with an aerial view.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Ring announces the release of the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, a new video doorbell complete with 3D motion detection with radar, enhanced audio capabilities with an array microphone, and customizable privacy features.
Combined with new head-to-toe video, 3D motion detection and bird’s eye view, Ring says the new device gives homeowners more context about what is happening at their front door.
3D motion detection also powers the new Bird’s Eye View feature, which provides an aerial view of the homeowner’s property and a map of where a motion event starts to give historical context to the nature of the event.
Homeowners can set 3D motion detection thresholds and customizable motion zones that trigger recordings, and privacy zones can exclude areas in the camera field of view from video recording for added privacy. You can read more on how this radar technology works on Ring’s blog here.
“3D motion detection and bird’s eye view are the natural next steps in home security and will set a new standard in motion detection,” says Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and chief inventor. “With the introduction of these radar-based features, we’re reinventing what our devices can do to give our customers a more precise picture of what is happening at home. We’re excited to add this technology to our most popular product — the doorbell, and to offer customers even more choices for their home security systems.”
In addition to 3D motion detection and bird’s eye view, advanced features include head-to-toe video, 1536p HD video and an array microphone that limits sound distortion for clearer audio and video of what’s happening at the door, according to the company.
Also new are Smart Responses. First, a new Quick Replies feature is available for all homeowners with Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, with preset replies that act as an answering machine for the front door. Second, Ring Protect Plan subscribers can also turn on Alexa Greetings, a new feature that enables Alexa to automatically greet visitors, take messages, and provide instructions on where to leave packages when the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 doorbell is pressed.
