Ring Africa launches in SA

1 September 2020 Smart Home Automation

Ring Africa, whose mission is to make neighbourhoods safer, has officially launched a range of indoor and outdoor home security cameras. The suite of security options has been designed to provide a seamless ring of security in and around the homes of all South Africans.

All Ring Africa’s home security offerings use HD cameras that connect to your smartphone via the Ring app. Ring cameras take less than 15 minutes to install, come in battery and wired options and start at an entry price point of R1299. You can even connect certain cameras to a Ring Solar Panel for non-stop power. Popular features include Live View and two-way talk, motion-activated recording, night vision, a 1080p HD camera and a siren.

“At Ring, we are continuously pushing the boundaries on bringing the most innovative devices and features to our customers,” said Jamie Siminoff, Ring’s founder and chief inventor. “With our growing line of both indoor and outdoor cameras, varying in size and functionality, our customers have choices when determining how best to secure their homes.”

Ring Indoor Cam

With its compact design, the Ring Indoor Cam can be mounted just about anywhere in the home and features up to 1080p HD video, motion zones, night vision, two-way talk and Live View, and motion-activated recording. The device also includes privacy features that enable users to disable motion and audio recording right from the app, and an indicator light that displays whenever the camera is recording.

Ring Stick Up Cam

Look after what is important with the Ring Stick Up Cam, which can be installed pretty much anywhere − indoors or outdoors − and comes in both battery powered or plug-in power. Featuring up to 1080p HD video, motion detection, night vision, two-way talk and Live View, and a wide viewing angle, Stick Up Cam provides flexible home security and privacy wherever it’s needed most.

Ring Video Doorbell (second generation)

The Ring Video Doorbell is a 2,4p Ghz Wi-Fi connected security camera. Watch over your entrance in 1080pp HD video, and see, hear and speak to visitors from anywhere. With instant mobile alerts, two-way talk and Live View, you can answer the door from your smartphone, tablet and PC.

Ring Video Doorbell 3

The new Ring Video Doorbell 3 has improved motion detection and enhanced dual-band Wi-Fi alongside the features Ring users know, including a 1080pp HD camera, two-way talk and Live View. The Ring Video Doorbell 3 builds upon the great features of the Ring Video Doorbell 2 to now include a new, adjustable motion zone, called near zone, which can detect motion within 1,5 to 4,5 m of the front door, as well as enhanced dual-band 2,4p Ghz/5Ghz Wi-Fi for improved connectivity.

With Alexa compatibility, users can simply say, “Alexa, show me the front door,” to see their Ring Video Doorbell 3’s Live View, or say, “Alexa, answer the front door,” to begin speaking with whoever is at their door. In addition, with linked devices, available across all Ring products, users can link their doorbell to compatible Ring cameras to create an integrated, security system.

Ring Video Doorbell 3 includes Privacy Zones, which allow users to exclude areas of the camera field of view from video recording. Similar to all of Ring’s doorbells and cameras, Ring Video Doorbell 3 features toggles that allow users to turn off video or audio recording for an extra layer of privacy, at any time.

Ring Africa products are now officially available in South Africa through the following retailers – Takealot, Builders Warehouse, iStore, Incredible Connection and Leroy Merlin.
