The Ring Car Cam is a security camera that can help keep your vehicle safe with real-time motion notifications, Live View, and GPS location in the Ring app. The camera has dual-facing HD cameras, with two wide-angle cameras with Night Vision, one road-facing to capture detailed driving footage, and one cabin-facing to protect against break-ins. The cameras catch the action inside your car and out in front, helping to keep you in the know. The Night Vision feature allows you to get detailed, HD footage even in the dark.
When the Car Cam detects movement, it automatically begins recording. For an extra layer of privacy, you can flip the cover up to block the cabin-facing camera and electronically shut off the camera’s microphone. The built-in sensors detect motion in and around your ride when it’s parked and you’ll receive a motion alert in the Ring app. With Live View, you can see what triggered the alert when your car is connected to your home wifi or away from home with a Ring Protect Go subscription.
The camera also has a two-way talk feature, which allows you to see inside and talk with anyone in your car from your smartphone through the Ring app when your car is parked and connected to wifi or LTE.
The privacy cover feature built into the camera allows you to block the cabin-facing camera which also electronically shuts off the microphone. The camera also has a feature named Traffic Stop, which allows you to ask Car Cam to record by using the command, “Alexa, record”, to save highlights to the cloud with an optional Ring Protect Go subscription.
When your car is away from your home wifi, you can get access to 180-day cloud storage, use Live View and Two-Way Talk wherever your car is, locate your car with built-in GPS, get rich notifications, real-time notifications, and more with Ring Protect Go subscription.
The installation of the Ring Car Cam is easy and it plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-II port. The company advises that for safety, the Car Cam should only be used in vehicles where the OBD-II port is located on the left side of the steering wheel.
In conclusion, The Ring Car Cam offers a great option for keeping your car safe. The dual-facing cameras, Night Vision, motion alerts, Live View, and GPS location make this a comprehensive security solution for your vehicle. The two-way talk feature and privacy cover add an extra layer of convenience and security. With the option to subscribe to Ring Protect Go, you can access additional features and keep an eye on your car even when you’re away.
