Key Takeaways

  • Ring has released its first pan-tilt indoor camera.
  • The Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam has 360-degree horizontal coverage.
  • It ships May 30th for $80.

Amazon’s Ring has launched its first-ever pan-tilt indoor camera, the Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam. The device offers 360-degree coverage, providing homeowners with a comprehensive view of their property.

Priced at $80, the camera is set to hit the market on May 30th, with pre-orders already open on Amazon and Ring’s website.

The Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam centers on a motorized pan-tilt base, allowing for 360-degree horizontal coverage and 169-degree vertical tilt. You can see edge-to-edge across an entire room. The camera can be controlled directly from the Ring app.

In addition to its pan and tilt functionality, the camera includes established Ring features like Live View, Two-Way Talk, and motion alerts. The camera supports HD video and color night vision.

The device is unsurprisingly compatible with Echo speakers and other Alexa devices. More features are available with a Ring Protect subscription. 

Ring is still aware of privacy concerns for homeowners. The indoor camera will come with a manual privacy cover to disable audio and video recording. More privacy settings are available in the Ring app’s control center.

While Ring’s Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam packs a good punch in key features, the home indoor cam market is highly competitive, with other players like Google Nest, Arlo, and Blink offering similar solutions. Although Ring’s $80 price is fair when compared to some of its competitors, the manual cover might not be appealing if you want a more substantial approach to privacy.
