Ring Debuts New Spotlight Cam With Wired, Battery, and Solar Models for Home Security

by News on July 31, 2017, no comments

By Eric Slivka

Ring, maker of the popular video doorbells and recently launched Floodlight Cam, is today announcing a new line of Spotlight Cams.

Similar in function to the Floodlight Cam but with a different lighting system, the new Spotlight Cam features LED light panels that automatically turn on when motion is detected, as well as a 1080p camera with night vision, two-way audio, and a 110 dB siren to let homeowners see activity around their homes and communicate with people who set foot on their property.

Wired model

The Ring Spotlight Cam will integrate with other Ring products through the Ring app to provide a complete security solution around the perimeter of the home.

Ring’s new Spotlight Cam is available in either black or white and will be available in three versions: Wired, Battery, and Solar. The Wired version includes a 270-degree horizontal motion detection angle, 140-degree camera field of view, and a 20-foot power cable. It is priced at $199 and is available to order today with shipments starting in 7–10 days.

Solar model

The Battery ($199) and Solar ($229) versions have a narrower 160-degree motion detection angle but the same 140-degree camera field of view as the wired version. The Battery and Solar models each come with a single 6000 mAh battery pack, but the light itself can hold two battery packs for maximum battery life. Extra battery packs are priced at $29 each. The Solar model comes with a Ring Solar Panel to keep the battery packs charged at all times. The Battery and Solar models are available for pre-order today and will begin shipping in the fall.

LG V30 schematic leaks: Dual rear camera remains a staple, but no sign of a secondary display

by News on July 31, 2017, no comments

By Peter K.

With the LG V30 slated for an August 30 announcement, it’s only natural for more and more leaks and rumors to start popping out. The latest one is what’s claimed to be an excerpt from the phone’s manual and gives us a rather nondescript look at LG’s soon-to-come handset.

It doesn’t take a genius to spot the similarities between the V30 schematic and the company’s G6 flagship – we’ve got the same slim bezels all-around the front, with the top and bottom one a bit more pronounced, a dual-camera at the rear, and last but not least, what seems to be a 9:18 FullVision display. …
