Ring Always Home Cam (caption: Ring Always Home Cam)Although not slated to hit the market until later this year, Ring’s newest innovation in home security equipment could rock the competition if their Always Home Cam proves worthy.

It’s a fun piece of equipment for sure — a camera-equipped, smart-home drone that flies inside your house to keep tabs on your home for security and other safety reasons you might need. For instance, you can make sure you didn’t leave a window open or that you turned off your stove after you left home.

Concerned about privacy? Always a valid concern with smart home technologies. The Always Home cam won’t be buzzing inside your home 24/7, but still begs to question just how much control you’ll have over it. Our experts dig in.

  • The camera itself hums so you can hear that the camera is in motion and is recording (to help with privacy)
