When it comes to home security, it’s important to have the full context of what’s happening at your home. At Ring, we’re always looking at ways to enhance our technology and provide features that give you more information that adds to your peace of mind. No matter the feature, we do this in pursuit of our mission of making neighbourhoods safer.
See a fuller picture of what’s happening at home
Today, we are introducing two brand new features that are the result of nearly three years of hard work across the Ring team: 3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View.
These features are the latest advancements in home security, available on Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, our newest premium, wired doorbell. Together, these new features provide you with context about when and where a motion event took place and an aerial map view of the movement on your property. These are both a natural next step in home security, as the more information you have, the quicker you can take action.
Here’s why you’ll love it
With 3D Motion Detection, you can customise the specific distance threshold for 3D Motion Detection and your Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 captures video when someone crosses that threshold. The radar sensor determines when that object crosses by measuring its distance and angle from the front of the camera. Alongside traditional Ring features like Customisable Motion Zones and Privacy Zones, this makes it even easier to customise your setup and get more specific, more relevant motion alerts for the events on your property that you care about most.
3D Motion Detection also powers the all-new Bird’s Eye View feature, which lets you see the path someone took, with an aerial map view. Regardless of whether you're watching a motion event in Live View or in your Event History (with a Ring Protect Plan), you will see a picture-in-picture layout in the app, that shows both the current movement path and grey dots that light up, indicating where the motion event started, giving you more context.
3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View give you more control and context, to help keep you in the loop about what’s happening at home.
How to get these new features
3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View will both be available on Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, Ring’s newest, premium wired doorbell. When in Live View, you will see the Bird’s Eye View path as a picture-in-picture experience. If you are a Ring Protect Plan subscriber, you’ll be able to look back at your Event History and see the full video and aerial map view that was recorded on your Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2.
I’m excited about what these new features mean for Ring and how they will raise the bar for motion detection moving forward, continuing to bring you additional peace of mind.
