Ring are famous for their smart doorbell but actually have a much broader range of home security products. That range has just received an update, as unveiled at CES 2018. The whole security ecosystem now includes several new security devices. Among the new products are 2 new indoor/outdoor security cameras and a line of smart, connected outdoor lights, called Ring Beams.

Ring also announced its new, professionally monitored home security system which will begin shipping to customers in late 2018. The Ring product line, along with the Ring Neighbourhoods network, enable Ring to offer affordable, complete home and neighbourhood security in a way no other company has before.

Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, Jamie Siminoff said,

“In order to execute on our mission of reducing crime in neighbourhoods, homeowners need security that is affordable, proactive, easy to install, and comprehensive. All Ring products are integrated so homeowners can create a complete security system with custom zones, commands and settings to best deter thieves.

As we begin shipping our security system, which offers professional monitoring and unlimited cameras, and continue to innovate and layer new products and features into the Ring of Security and Ring Neighbourhoods network, we’re going to make being a burglar in 2018 a very tough job.”
