Ring, Amazon’s smart doorbell maker, has released a new family safety camera that can fly. In essence, this family camera, called always home cam, is a small UAV equipped with a camera. It can shoot video with a resolution of up to 1080p and is compatible with the ring alarm alarm alarm system. When the user is not at home, it can fly around the room, allowing users to observe any scene in the room. < / P > < p > once the established flight path is completed, always home cam automatically returns to the base to charge the battery. Ring announced that always home cam will begin shipping next year and is expected to sell for $249.99. The idea behind always home cam is to provide multi view surveillance for the entire family without using multiple cameras, said Jamie Siminoff, founder and “lead inventor” of ring. In an interview before the announcement, Siminov said the company had spent two years focusing on the development of the device, stressing that it was “a product that is obviously difficult to manufacture”, but thanks to advances in UAV technology, the company was able to make such a product and operate as designed. < / P > < p > always home cam is an automated device, but users can set their flight routes and target areas to monitor. When using the device for the first time, users need to have always home cam devices map the entire interior, and always home cam also allows users to monitor specific areas such as kitchens or bedrooms. Always home cam can fly according to the user’s command, or it can be connected with the ring alarm alarm alarm system to check the situation when an alarm occurs. < / P > < p > however, always home cam’s charging base blocks the camera, so always home cam’s camera can only be monitored while in flight. Ring said the device makes inevitable noise during flight and cannot be completely shielded when shooting video. Ring said the camera could be used to check whether the stove was not closed, the windows were open, or the door was locked when users left home. Its biggest characteristic is the excellent obstacle avoidance technology, which can avoid the objects on the flight route, and the propeller with protective cover can prevent damage to other things.
