SANTA MONICA, Calif.—Ring announced Ring Protect earlier this week, a comprehensive DIY home security system that works with Ring’s doorbells and cams.
“At Ring, everything we make is designed to establish and enhance a Ring of Security around homes and neighborhoods,” Jamie Siminoff, chief inventor and founder of Ring, said in the announcement. “Ring Protect provides an incredibly effective level of security when compared to traditional, expensive systems, yet comes at a fraction of the cost since it was developed in-house. Offering an effective, inexpensive solution means more homeowners can afford and use Ring Protect, which in turn leads to safer neighborhoods.”
In the press release, the company highlighted that with Ring Protect there are no long-term contracts or expensive fees for cancellations or for using cameras, sensors or a mobile app. “Ring Protect is easily installed by the homeowner without any tools and can be customized to fit an individual’s needs,” the press release read. “Ring Protect works seamlessly with all Ring products, including Ring Video Doorbell, Floodlight Cam, and Spotlight Cam, as well as other home security products, like smart carbon monoxide detectors, locks, lights, thermostats, sensors, and more.”
Battery backup and LTE cellular backup allow professional monitoring to continue even if the power goes out or broadband is unavailable.
Ring Protect bundles start at $199 and include a base station, keypad, contact sensor (for a window or door), passive infrared sensor (PIR) and Z-Wave extender. Ring Protect plans start at $10 per month and include 24/7 professional monitoring; cloud video storage for an unlimited amount of Ring devices; free Ring mobile app usage; and 10 percent off all future Ring purchases. Ring Protect will be available in Home Depot and Best Buy stores later this month, and can be ordered through their websites.Topic: Residential Tags: Ring, Ring Protect, Jamie Siminoff
