Ring has launched its Door View Cam – a peephole fixing smart video doorbell that was unveiled at CES 2019.

The Door View Cam is aimed at renters, with the camera able to securely fit to doors without any drilling or screwing. Just take out your peephole and attach the elements of the Door View Cam either side of your door – nice and secure.

What’s more, the Door View Cam still means you can spy on your callers analogue, by looking through the hole.

As for features, the Ring Door View Cam offers most of the usual fare: 1080p HD video all powered by a Lithium-Ion battery so there’s no need for existing wiring. There’s also two-way talk system, activity detection and night vision. You’ll still need a Ring subscription to store recorded video, but live two-way talk is included.

There's a button on the front that people can press, but you won't have to wait for visitors to work that out as the motion detector will give you a heads-up when someone has arrived.

And if your caller decides to knock on your door, rather than push the button, the Ring has a nifty answer. The Door View Cam features knock-detection, using built-in motion sensors to detect movement at your front door, and the vibration of the knock itself – which means you won’t miss a caller.

Other features include privacy zones, that enable you to block out areas of the cameras view – in case neighbours have a problem your camera.

And like the standard Ring Video Doorbell, it’s Alexa compatible, enabling two-way talk and a view feed via Amazon’s Echo Show smart speakers.

The Door View Cam is available now, priced at $199.99.
