CES2017 Step up your home security with the new Ring Floodlight Cam.

Making its debut at CES 2017 in Las Vegas this week, the Floodlight Cam keeps an eye on your property with 1080p video recording, motion detection and the loudest siren available on an outdoor camera. What’s more, it’s incredibly easy to install.

Ring has already changed outdoor home security for the better, starting with the Video Doorbell in 2014. Now it is looking to transform the floodlight into a do-it-all security device that watches over your home 24 hours a day.

The Floodlight Cam is affordable and easily installed in critical areas, like above your front door or over your driveway. It connects to your home network via Wi-Fi and allows you to monitor these areas at any time with crisp, 1080p video.

Motion detection lets the Floodlight Cam know when it needs to start recording, and videos are saved to the cloud, so you don’t need to splash out on local storage. You can then review these recordings at any time and save any that you might need later.

The Floodlight Cam also boasts smart LED lights and infrared night vision, and a 100dB siren that can scare away intruders when you’re away. There’s also an app that’s compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS that lets you control your Cam remotely.

“We are now able to deliver the full Ring of Security to every corner of your home, giving you preventive, 24-hour monitoring in one, integrated solution,” said chief inventor and founder of Ring, Jamie Siminoff.

“Floodlight Cam enhances Ring’s mission of reducing crime in neighborhoods and when used with the Ring Doorbell, provides a complete proactive, preventative home security system.”

You can pre-order your Floodlight Cam today for $249 at Ring.com, with orders scheduled to begin shipping in early April.
