Ring Debuts New Stick Up Cams And Smart Lighting

Security camera maker Ring has introduced a number of new products at this year’s CES, including two new camera models and new smart security lights.


Ring’s new indoor/outdoor security camera Stick Up Cam comes in two models — Stick Up Cam and Stick Up Cam Elite. Both versions of the camera offer two-way audio and 1080p HD video. While Stick Up Cam offers passive motion sensors with zone detection, Stick Up Cam Elite has advanced motion sensors.

Part of the appeal of the Stick Up Cam is its versatility — both models can use multiple power options, and they come with mounting brackets that allow them to be placed virtually anywhere. No pricing information was given.

Ring Beams

Ring has also announced the acquisition of LED lighting company Mr. Beams, and with that announcement, it has introduced its own outdoor security lighting system — Ring Beams.

Ring Beams are outdoor security smart lights that integrate with the Ring app and other Ring products. Pathway lights, step lights, and spotlights are all part of the system. Pricing is currently unavailable.

Other Announcements

Ring had more to announce at CES, as well. The company introduced its Ring Neighborhoods network, which allows neighbors to offer real-time alerts to form a community-based security solution. Further details are scarce at this point, but the objective seems to look very similar to Vivint’s recently announced Streety.

Ring has also announced that its security system, Ring Alarm, will begin shipping this spring. Ring Alarm was previously known as Ring Protect, but the company has (rather quietly) given it a new name. Ring Alarm comes with a base station, keypad, contact sensor, passive infrared sensor, and Z-Wave extender.

Ring was facing a legal challenge from ADT in bringing its security system to market — either those legal issues have been resolved, or Ring is confident it will be able to prevail.
