Ring Launches Battery Video Doorbell Plus, Our Most Significant Battery Doorbell Update Yet.

When we first imagined the video doorbell concept more than 10 years ago, we knew that choosing a battery power source would meet the needs of the widest variety of customers possible. Now, we are proud to offer the most comprehensive line up of video doorbells on the market today— with eight different models spanning battery, hardwired, and power-over-ethernet.

Since then, we’ve introduced features that offer even more value, convenience, and peace of mind. Smart Alerts help reduce unwanted motion alerts and notify you when a package has been delivered, enhanced privacy and security settings look after both your physical and digital safety, and improvements to the camera resolution along with night vision give you a crisp, clear view of everything happening at your front door.

Today, we are excited to announce another addition to our battery-powered family with Battery Video Doorbell Plus—the most significant update to our battery doorbell lineup yet, with energy saving features resulting in a battery life that is up to three times better than our first Ring Video Doorbell.

Introducing Battery Video Doorbell Plus
This next-generation video doorbell is our first battery doorbell with a 150x150 degree field of view, giving you a head-to-toe view of all your visitors, whether they be human or of the friendly four-legged variety. The expanded view makes features like Package Alerts with a Ring Protect subscription even more useful, so you can easily check in on deliveries on your doorstep, and be notified as soon as a package is detected within a zone you specify during set-up. At 1536p, Battery Video Doorbell Plus also has the highest HD resolution of any Ring battery doorbell yet, providing a crisp and clear view of everything happening at your front door.

With these new upgrades, we’ve made sure to still include the features you know and trust from Ring Video Doorbells, so you can customise to your personal preferences. Customisable Motion Zones let you specify where your device detects motion, while Privacy Zones can exclude areas from your camera’s field of view for added privacy. Set up Quick Replies to choose preset responses for visitors when you’re not available to answer the door. Use Live View and Two-Way Talk to speak to people at your door in real time. Like other Ring devices, Battery Video Doorbell Plus is also compatible with Alexa, so you can see, hear and speak to visitors through your Echo or Fire TV device.

With each new doorbell, we’ve improved our battery life capabilities to help you get the most out of your device. In addition to improvements over the original Ring Video Doorbell, settings like Person Alerts, Motion Zones and features like Advanced Motion Detection all help to conserve power usage by only detecting events that matter to you. Just like our other battery devices, Battery Video Doorbell Plus also has a quick-release, rechargeable battery pack, and the ability to connect to a Ring solar panel for non-stop power*.

Protecting your privacy is just as important to us as protecting your home. Last year, we expanded support for video End-to-End Encryption to battery-powered devices. Battery Video Doorbell Plus gives you a full range of privacy options to protect your personal information and videos – all within the Ring app.

Let Your Doorbell Work Even Harder for You
With a Ring Protect subscription, you can unlock a host of helpful features including Ring Notifications, Person Alerts and Package Alerts. Rich Notifications let you see exactly what triggered an alert with a photo preview in pop-up notifications on your phone. Person Alerts notify you only about motion caused by a person. Package Alerts allow you to create a specific zone, such as your front porch or driveway, and receive an alert when a package is detected.

Battery Video Doorbell Plus will be available for purchase on Ring.com and Amazon on April 13, 2023 for £159.99.

* Ability to recharge varies based on device settings, motion notifications and sun exposure in the area of placement.
