How Ring's flying drone camera could win us over

The Ring Always Home Cam is launching later this year. Ring might be pushing the privacy envelope in the wrong direction, but if this gadget has the right mix of features and security, it could still win us over.

    the Rober will have a face cover here the drone and brake it

    I wouldn’t mind buying it if you can use it instead of stick up camera. I’m hoping you can control it from your phone. Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

    How many homes are multi floor? That is such dumb move not to include the ability to go to a different floor. What a bust.

  4. Josh Garris on June 28, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    WHEN????? I’VE BEEN WAITING!

  5. Nomoreidsleft on June 28, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Hope the drone is secured. Otherwise it’s going to get stolen.

  6. AR 23 on June 28, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    they Live

    Wait is he wearing a mask?😷oh wait.

  8. John Rosario Cotto on June 28, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Baseball bat that’s cute 🤣

  9. Andrew Toney on June 28, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    This anti home tech sentiment I’m getting sick of! Just don’t even make such comments!

  10. Ffirst Llast on June 28, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    baseball bat? hahaha…poor snowflake

  11. David Dobson on June 28, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Wait? So your telling me that’s it’s so QUIET 🤫 you can’t hear it (spy) 🤔

  12. MWA on June 28, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    make sure you have backup electricity and internet connection/wifi before investing in ANY security products. Most burglars know where the main fuse box is located and most property the internet cable is visible from OUTSIDE.

    For the price of single flying drone camera, you can install 12 regular adrunio base cameras. Unless you have more than 12 rooms in your house/apartment, it might be cheaper to seek alternative. Even putting civil liberty and privacy concern aside. It’s really hard to justify the price for the value it bring.

  14. Alex Lopez on June 28, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    How can I add a gun to it??

  15. C. Harris on June 28, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    You lost me at "It can’t go up or down stairs." 👎🏼👎🏼 Half-Baked gimmick solution.

  16. Benjamin Stephen on June 28, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Just imagine what happen if there’s a ghost🤣

  17. Joel Martinez on June 28, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    We needed an OUTDOOR drone camera. Who the heck needs this inside??? All the action is outside the house. I’m still gonna use this outside

  18. Rodrigo Diaz on June 28, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Can’t fly upstairs. No bueno

  19. E Marbury on June 28, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Everything costs $250. For them to not provide the drop in feature, renders the drone of almost little value. It would be perfect for me to have two of them that would clear rooms in tandem. Especially when I am at home.

  20. Smokin Dauberdoo420 on June 28, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    NEVER

  21. Michelle Behr on June 28, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Wonderful! If I’m on the throne and run out of toilet paper I can have that thing get me a roll. Fetch!

  22. mattweh mattwehh on June 28, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I just found out about it & want it… BUT It still leads to paranoia…

    If it’s in the solid white box how am I even going to know if the camera to possible microphone isn’t on while inside the box unless it’s got a light indicator for when it’s active & the box is see threw 🤔🤔

  23. Toshi on June 28, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Your T shirt is certainly not boring to look at.

  24. Prince andrylle Espiloy on June 28, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    can’t wait what Michael Reeves will do with that.

  25. Jayden D. on June 28, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I want that camera just to watch it fly around

  26. Nick Botha on June 28, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    But it’s not in the UK yet…

  27. Julius Washington on June 28, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    I mean whose home is such a threat to be burglarized that they would need some sort of constant surveillance like this? The simple fact is that most of these home security features are gimmicks and most people have little to fear – definitely nothing that would warrant an autonomous flying camera.

  28. Jacob Powers on June 28, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Ever worry about hackers, they gonna do what they gonna do.

    Also don’t mess around with no cloud based services, … but yeah.

  29. Sketchupdave on June 28, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I think it would be nice as an alarm clock or to piss of your pets and family members.

  30. Dj Expect on June 28, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Apple needs to make one

  31. MurlocConfidential on June 28, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Decent review. I like this device for a warehouse style environment or office setting after hours. Prolly vacation time as well. Just not occupied time periods.

  32. Stephen Carboni on June 28, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    SECURE?
    Ring already gives doorbell cam video to the police. No thank you.

  33. Elmo Bolan on June 28, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Decraps grab a bat, Republicans grab a gun….

  34. Comment Highlighted on June 28, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    I’m ready for the Stun Mod 🙂

  35. MileHighOllie on June 28, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Thanks brother Moses.

  36. john frazier on June 28, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Waiting for the adaption for outdoors.

  37. Denis Lara on June 28, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    I had a Ring doorbell for 1.5 year and it was a constant nightmare. Even after buying a Mesh Wifi system, that ring doorbell it never worked properly.

  38. Oleksiy Chekin on June 28, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Please make it pass thru the doors… or walls. I dont like to have all doors opened. And btw, why not just use some fixed cameras that could rotate? It stable, safe, provides more relevant info, produce no noises and no problems with pets that try to play with it (and accidentally got hurt by the drone).

  39. Jarkko Aitti on June 28, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    i’ve wondered for a long time how spineless people are when it comes to buying. sure some young activists boycott nike for a couple of years (and at the same time they used happily windows or a mac and with ie or chrome etc..) or they still buy sony despite that companys many mean deeds and always going tendency to try to force people to use something propiertary which they control. ring is known for they privacy and security problems, some intentional and still people buy its products? i wonder if they could win at court with a argument of "they knew about our problems, they are well documented all over internet" when someone finds pictures of naked themselves at home online 🙂

  40. Patrick Burke on June 28, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Too much spazz arm and hand motion

  41. Arieh Marks on June 28, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I figure all that is necessary for a private home is a bunch of cheap tiny cameras tied into a central system (BTW, this drone is also tied into a central Ring system). May take a few hours to install but a lot more reliable than a flying R2D2.

  42. Tyler C on June 28, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    So basically, it’s useless for in home

  43. Person Person on June 28, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Damn this starts to look like the future. The flight is so smooth.
    Second gen drones, I suppose.

  44. gilgamesh uruk on June 28, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Put a machine gun on it

  45. Christian Fuchs on June 28, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Ring = Google (Alphabet) = Evil. But no big thing… cant climb floors and cant open doors.

  46. Jj W on June 28, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Skynet approves.

  47. kcgunesq on June 28, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Aside from the media, I’m not sure who thinks of Ring as "having baggage". But I"m sure it is largely people who spend their day on Facebook and Twitter.

  48. San Angelo on June 29, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Grab a bat? That’s cute.

  49. Luke Taylor on June 29, 2021 at 12:00 am

    No verticality? Damn, I thought that was a given. Shame.

  50. Era S on June 29, 2021 at 12:01 am

    It will also trigger other PIR alarms inside the house
