It’s been two years since Ring launched a new video doorbell, but the Amazon-owned security company is changing that today. Ring just added the new Battery Doorbell Plus as the latest iteration in its video doorbell lineup.


The expanded field-of-view features head-to-toe video.


This latest battery doorbell is what Amazon calls its “most significant battery doorbell update yet,” as it touts a battery life that can last up to three times longer than the first Ring Video Doorbell, thanks to new energy-saving features.

These features will enable users to customize Advanced Motion Detection to only detect the events that are important to them.

With People-Only mode and predetermined Motion Zones, you’ll be able to conserve battery life, so your video doorbell will not be triggered by a passing squirrel or leaves blowing in the wind.

The improved battery life, however, is not the only upgrade. With this new Ring Battery Doorbell Plus, you can enjoy head-to-toe video of your front door, with a field of view of 150-degrees by 150-degrees and a larger-than-HD resolution at 1536p. This expanded field of view gives you a clear picture not only of who’s coming by, but of any packages that may be sitting on your porch.

With Package alerts through your Ring Protect subscriptionfor example, you’ll get a customized alert when a package is detected within a previously-specified area, in an effort to minimize notifications, false alerts, and battery drainage.

Of course, you’ll continue to enjoy the benefits of a Ring video doorbell with the new Battery Plus model, like real-time notifications, two-way talk, color night vision, live view, privacy zones, Quick Replies, and Amazon Alexa compatibility, as well as a 30-day trial of Ring Protect.
