Ring has launched the second generation of Indoor Cam, bringing homeowners an additional layer of privacy and security. Indoor Cam (2nd Gen) is Ring’s first-ever security camera with a new, manual, removable privacy cover that turns off audio and video recording when it is placed over the camera lens, giving customers even more control and peace of mind when it comes to customising their privacy and security at home.
Indoor Cam is a compact, indoor-only camera that brings customers all the benefits of the first-generation Indoor Cam, such as Two-Way Talk, 1080p HD video, Live View, Customisable Motion and Privacy Zones, now with enhanced features like Colour Night Vision and an upgraded design. With the new privacy cover, customers can have greater control over what their device captures.
Indoor Cam's microphone and camera will turn off when the privacy cover is moved in front of the camera lens. Customers can reactivate video and audio capture by moving the privacy cover to the side, and, if in doubt, they can check the status of their camera in the Ring app. A blue LED indicator light will glow when the Indoor Cam captures video or when night vision has been activated. Automatic light sensing lets it know when the lighting has dimmed enough to activate the night vision feature automatically.
Additionally, the adjustable mount design and plug-in AC power enables customers to position the Indoor Cam almost anywhere at home by plugging it into any available power outlet.
"Our customers value peace of mind, but they also prioritise their privacy," says Mohammad Meraj Hoda, Vice President – Emerging Markets, Ring. "The second generation Indoor Cam, with its manual privacy cover, is another step towards giving our customers greater control of their security. It allows them to enjoy the benefits of smart home security without compromising their privacy and demonstrates Ring’s commitment to continuously ensuring our customers have complete peace of mind.”
Indoor Cam supports video end-to-end encryption for an added layer of data security. It is compatible with Alexa, and easily integrates with other Ring devices through Linked Devices on the Ring app, enabling triggered video recording when motion is detected by connected Ring devices at home.
The indoor camera (2nd Gen) will be available from October 2023 from Takealot, Leroy Merlin, Incredible Connection, Builders Warehouse and ClearAccess at a retail price of R1199,00.
