Ring is launching three affordable devices to help you power your smart home outdoor security system: the Outdoor Smart Plug, the Wall Light Solar, and the Alarm Outdoor Siren. All three products are weather resistant and can be pre-ordered from Amazon or Ring̵
Smart plugs are a common offering from smart home manufacturers, but the Outdoor Smart Plug is Ring’s first attempt at using such a device. It features two independent power outlets, which you can set on a timer or activate with Alexa commands. At $ 30, the Ring Outdoor Smart Plug is a great deal – if you have the required Security Bridge, of course.
Like most solar powered outdoor lights, the $ 60 solar ring light turns on when it detects motion, but you can also control it with Alexa or program it to turn on when you see other smart security devices moving. The $ 90 Ring outdoor siren sounds an alarm when your indoor siren goes off, and it can be powered by batteries, hard wire, or, oddly enough, a Ring solar light.
You can pre-order Ring’s Outdoor Smart Plug, Wall Light Solar, and Alarm Outdoor Siren from Amazon or the Ring website. Orders for the outdoor siren will ship on March 31, while orders for solar light and smart plug will ship on April 7. Please note that these products require a Ring Security Bridge to connect to your home internet.
