Ring Car Alarm
The Ring Car Alarm is a low-cost discreet wireless device that plugs into 99% of cars on the road in the U.S. The Ring Car Alarm senses bumps, break-ins, tow-aways, etc. and it sends you alerts accordingly. Through an app, you can also activate the siren or see the car’s last-known location.
You can use Ring Car Connect to tap into your car’s built-in cameras to get alerts and watch a recorded video in the Ring App. The first compatible cars are Tesla models 3, S, X, and Y. And you can watch Tesla Sentry Mode and recorded driving footage over Wi-Fi or from anywhere with an optional LTE connectivity plan.
There is a Traffic Stop feature that lets you simply say “Alexa, I’m being pulled over” to record the interaction and save it to the cloud with an optional connectivity plan.
And while on the road, you can use the Ring Car Cam’s Emergency Crash Assist feature, which requests help from emergency services at the car’s location in a serious crash even when you cannot make it yourself.
Ring Always Home Car
The Ring Always Home Cam is a lightweight autonomously flying indoor camera that gives greater visibility even when you are not at home. Here is how it works:
