Scare away thieves with the Ring Car Cam — via drivingdotca Technology CES AutoShows

In an interview, Ring Chief Technology Officer Josh Roth said the new dash-cam device has a privacy shutter that can disable audio and video recording inside the car. It uses a similar approach as Tesla Inc.’s Sentry Mode, which can record external events like car accidents. Ring had announced plans in 2020 for a Car Connect device that would allow a Tesla to send its video feed to the Ring app, but Roth said that feature has been canceled.

The Car Cam plugs into a vehicle’s OBD-II port for power and connects to the windshield via a sticker. The device can store seven hours of camera footage and then sync it over Wi-Fi to a phone. Ring is also offering a $6-per-month or $60-per-year plan to enable LTE network access, which will send alerts and notifications without a Wi-Fi connection and move video to the cloud automatically.

The car camera has limited voice control via Alexa, which can trigger it to begin recording during certain scenarios, such a traffic stop. The company wouldn’t disclose why the product was delayed for more than two years, other than to say it didn’t feel like the camera was ready for market. Ring had also announced plans for a car alarm two years ago but now says that’s on hold.

The new device is scheduled to ship in February for $250 but the cost will be $200 for customers who preorder it, beginning Thursday. The launch will be exclusive to the U.S. at the start, Ring said.

Hailey Bieber admits to 'struggling with PTSD' after health scareHailey Bieber \u0022struggled with a little bit of PTSD\u0022 after suffering a blood clot in her brain. PTSD really. Please do not insult those who have fought in wars with weak children. The term 'PTSD' is thrown around so much nowadays that it's lost it's real meaning. A 'health scare' does not give you PTSD. Being a victim of crime, will give you PTSD! Being a police officer, or a dispatcher or a paramedic or military will give you PTSD! Grow up already!!!
