The new Always Home Cam is an autonomous drone that can fly around inside your home to give you a perspective of any room you want when youre not home. Once its done flying, the Always Home Cam returns to its dock to charge its battery. It is expected to cost $249.99 when it starts shipping next year.
Jamie Siminoff, Rings founder and chief inventor, says the idea behind the Always Home Cam is to provide multiple viewpoints throughout the home without requiring the use of multiple cameras. In an interview ahead of the announcement, he said the company has spent the past two years on focused development of the device, and that it is an obvious product that is very hard to build. Thanks to advancements in drone technology, the company is able to make a product like this and have it work as desired.
The Always Home Cam is fully autonomous, but owners can tell it what path it can take and where it can go. When you first get the device, you build a map of your home for it to follow, which allows you to ask it for specific viewpoints such as the kitchen or bedroom. The drone can be commanded to fly on demand or programmed to fly when a disturbance is detected by a linked Ring Alarm system.

Amazes me that people will pay to be spied on.
A version like Doctor Who’s K9 would be great.
I saw this on The Jetsons in 1965.....................
In our house if it flies it dies with our cats
My son-in-law brought me a Ring doorbell for Christmas a couple of years ago.
I had to come up with a very diplomatic way of telling him that I never want that, or Alexa, or any other high-tech spy devices installed in my house.
Those spoofed phone calls you keep getting.
The ones with what sounds like fax tones.
Siri, Alexa, Cortana.
Clearly people will accept listening devices implanted in their homes and transmitting everything they say to a company with dubious privacy practices as long as the listening devices have women’s names.
I forgot about that flick.
At most I saw a few minutes of it.
I also had the paperback based on the movie as a kid.
I haven’t gotten a call with FAX tones since probably 1999.
My cats would take this down. They think moths are the greatest thing ever and they are edible. The boy cat is a high jumper. Maybe 4.5 feet or more.
Thing won’t last long if you have a cat.
"Master?" Actually the blm savages would burn your house down if you had a droid that called you master.
A minor software update for another title.
I own a large property and would mind an outdoor version the patrols the property at random or if an dakota alert alarm is triggered
Why can’t they make a robot dog for around the house?
Sony made one years ago.
