Ring announced the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, a new video doorbell complete with 3D Motion Detection with radar, enhanced audio capabilities with an array microphone, and customizable privacy features. Combined with new Head to Toe video, 3D Motion Detection, and Bird’s Eye View, the new device gives homeowners more context about what is happening at their front door.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 uses radar to better detect objects. Homeowners can customize which areas of their property they want to monitor by selecting distance thresholds. The radar sensor determines when an object crosses the distance threshold by measuring its specific distance from the camera. The camera only starts recording once that threshold is crossed, and sends homeowners a motion alert. Unique to Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, 3D Motion Detection gives you more control to record video only when and where someone steps onto your property.
3D Motion Detection also powers a new Bird’s Eye View feature, which provides an aerial view of the homeowner’s property and a map of where a motion event starts to give historical context to the nature of the event. Together, 3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View are the newest way for homeowners to get more control and context about what’s happening in front of their door.
In addition to 3D Motion Detection and Bird’s Eye View, advanced features include Head to Toe video, 1536p HD video, and an array microphone that limits sound distortion for clearer audio and video of what’s happening at the door.
Also new are Smart Responses, two new features that make Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 and other cameras even more helpful. First, a new Quick Replies feature is available for all homeowners with Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2, with preset replies that act as an answering machine for the front door. Second, Ring Protect Plan subscribers can also turn on Alexa Greetings, a new feature that enables Alexa to automatically greet visitors, take messages, and provide instructions on where to leave packages when the Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 doorbell is pressed.
The Ring app allows users to tailor specific privacy and security settings. Homeowners can set 3D Motion Detection thresholds and Customizable Motion Zones that trigger recordings, and Privacy Zones can exclude areas in the camera field of view from video recording for added privacy. And for advanced security options, Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 will support Ring’s video End-to-End Encryption, currently in technical preview.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 is $249.99 and is available for pre-order at Ring.com and Amazon.com. Ring Video Doorbell Pro 2 will begin shipping to customers on March 31, 2021.
