About the Ring Indoor Cam
Budget-friendly and compact
Budget-friendly and compact
I'm sure I'm not the only one who uses a security camera to keep an eye on their dogs. But my girls are always moving from room to room so they go in and out of the frame a lot. With this compact and budget-friendly new Indoor Cam from Ring, I could probably manage to cover all my blind spots by using more cameras.
It's pretty unobtrusive, so you can tuck it away on almost any tabletop or shelf using the integrated stand. You can also mount it on a wall or ceiling if that's where you can get the best angle from the camera's 140° field of view. It plugs into a standard AC outlet for power, so you don't need to worry about keeping a battery charged.
Two-way talk lets you tell the dog to stop getting into stuff from wherever you are.
A robust app
The Ring mobile app lets you view the camera's live stream in real time from wherever you are. Press the talk button to have a chat with people or pets at home. Or — if you see uninvited guests — press the alarm button to activate the Indoor Cam's siren to scare them off.
You can also customize motion zones and schedules so that you only get notifications when you actually need them.
Optional cloud storage
The camera streams live footage to the app 24/7, but if you want to save or send video clips, you'll need a Ring Protect plan. Ring Protect is a subscription-based cloud storage service. The basic package ($3/month or $30/year) covers a single camera and allows you to save and share your Ring videos from that camera. You get a free, 30-day trial subscription when you activate your Ring device.
Installing multiple Ring devices? The Ring Protect Plus plan ($10/month or $100/year) includes cloud storage for unlimited Ring devices at a single location.
The Ring app shows you views from all your Ring cameras in one easy-to-navigate interface.
Just ask Alexa
I also have good news for Smart Home fans — Ring cameras will work with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices for hands-free home monitoring. You can set regular Echo devices to illuminate and make an announcement when your Ring camera senses motion. And if you have an Echo Show or Spot, you can ask Alexa to show you the live stream from your Indoor Cam.

More details on the Ring Indoor Cam
Overview: The Ring Indoor Cam is a versatile and smart security solution. The camera can be mounted on a wall or ceiling, or placed on a table top. The Indoor Cam has an integrated adjustable base that converts to a versatile wall mount.

The camera is powered by an AC adapter (included).
Camera: The camera has a wide-angle lens with a wide 140° diagonal (115° horizontal / 60° vertical) field of view. The camera produces bright 1080p HD video in a Live View that you can watch on your phone, tablet, or computer. Adjustable motion sensors can detect movement up to 30 feet away. Up to three motion zones can be created to cover specific areas of your home, such as doorways, windows, and gates. When motion is detected, a notification will be sent to your smart device through the Ring app. Customizable motion schedules can be set up allow you to receive notifications only when you need them. Even with the lights off, the camera's infrared LEDs will enable the night vision.
Indoor Only Use: The Ring Indoor Cam is designed for indoor use only. The camera has an operating temperature rating of -5°F to 113°F.

Voice Assistant Compatible: The Ring Indoor Cam is compatible with both Alexa and Google Home voice-controlled "assistants." You can control the Ring security system by telling Alexa or the Google assistant to perform a specific action, such as turn on motion alerts, show the view from specific cameras, or play back videos. When you receive an alert, you can hear the announcements on your device. If you have an Echo Show or Spot, you'll be able to see live and recorded video on the screen, and conduct 2-way conversations with anyone captured on the live camera. Currently, live streaming from Ring devices is not compatible with Chromecast.

The app sends you an instant alert when someone triggers the camera's motion sensor, or rings your Ring Video Doorbell.

In the app, you can customize the Motion Zones, times for receiving (or not receiving) alerts, and how often to be notified for motion events.
