The Rings Always Home Cam is a small standalone drone with a security camera attached to it and internally monitors the entire home you.
The Always Home Cam is an ambitious new home security device that works like a standalone drone, which can fly into your home to give you the state of each room when you are away. Once launched, the Always Home Cam returns to its base to charge its battery. It is expected to cost $ 249,99 and will go on sale next year.
Jamie Siminoff, its founder Ring company and “original inventor,” presented it at the Amazon Event 2020 and mentioned that the idea behind the Always Home Cam is to provide multiple opinions of the entire home without requiring the use of multiple cameras. In an interview before the announcement, he said the company has been through the last few two χρόνια εστιασμένη στην ανάπτυξη της συσκευής και ότι είναι ένα «προφανές προϊόν που είναι πολύ δύσκολο να κατασκευαστεί». Χάρη στις εξελίξεις στην technology drone, η εταιρεία είναι σε θέση να κατασκευάσει ένα προϊόν σαν αυτό και να το λειτουργήσει όπως επιθυμείτε.
Always Home Cam is fully autonomous, but owners can tell it which route to take and where it can go. When you first pick up the device, you create a map of your home for it to follow, which allows you to ask the drone for specific views, such as the kitchen or bedroomeyeo. The drone can be ordered to fly on demand or programmed to fly automatically when a disturbance is detected by a connected Ring security system.
The charging cradle turns off the camera and the camera only records when in flight. The Ring company says that the drone makes an audible noise during the flight, so it is obvious when video is being recorded.

The company says the camera can also be used for simple things like checking if the water heater is on or if a window was left open or if a door is locked when you're away from home. It has obstacle avoidance technology that allows it to avoid objects in its path, and its shrouded propellers prevent it from damage on your property or injure a pet or person who may collide with the drone.
It is easy to say that it is by far the most ambitious product of Ring and it will be very interesting to see if it really works, as promised. However, we will have to wait until next year.
