You’ll immediately recognize the product as part of the Ring family—to say it carries the Ring doorbell’s industrial design DNA would be an understatement. It actually looks like a fully repurposed version of their existing doorbell product—which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Our (pending) review posits that Ring has, in addition to creating an incredibly useful and competitive product in its video doorbell also cracked the design challenges of a product that you want to install next to your front door.
The Stick-Up Cam fits perfectly into Ring’s mission of creating a “ring of security” around your home and community. Like the Ring video doorbell, it’s an easy self-installation, and the package includes everything you need to complete the process. Ring offers their cloud-based video recording service for this device, too, and the pricing is identical to the service for their video doorbell—$30 annually per device.
The Ring Stick-Up Cam will be available in February, and you can pre-order now at ring.com. It will retail for $199, which is the same price as their video doorbell.
