Call Spotlight Cam Pro and Plus: Where to pre-order

Not to be outdone by all the other Amazon products being announced this week, Ring joins in by announcing updates to its Spotlight Cam line. Ring’s outdoor security cameras each get a design refresh, with the high-end Spotlight Cam also getting 3D Motion Detection, a feature that until now had been limited to the Ring’s Video Doorbell Pro 2 and Floodlight Cam Wired Pro. Ring also updated its $29.99 Ring Alarm Panic Button.

Where to pre-order Ring Spotlight Cam Pro and Spotlight Cam Plus

The battery-powered and plug-in $229 Ring Spotlight Cam Pro models are available for pre-order now, along with the solar-powered model priced at $249. If the Spotlight Cam Plus is more your speed, you can pre-order right now for $199. All Ring Spotlight Cam models start shipping on October 26.

Below you’ll find an overview of what’s new in each Spotlight Cam and detail the new panic button.

Spotlight Cam Pro plug-in


The Ring Spotlight Cam Pro is a brand new addition to the Spotlight Cam range, with the Pro model offering a premium home security camera for Ring users. As with the Floodlight Cam Pro or Doorbell Pro 2, the “Pro” moniker means the camera has more advanced features than the rest of the range.

For Spotlight Cam Pro, this means you now get Ring’s 3D Motion Detection technology for more accurate motion alerts. You can set a specific distance that you want the camera to monitor for motion. When an object enters your defined area, the camera starts recording and mapping the movement. You will of course receive a push alert on your phone based on your settings.

In addition to 3D Motion Detection, Ring is also adding Birds Eye View to Spotlight Cam Pro – a feature that maps the exact path a person took as it crossed the camera’s field of view. This means that you can see, for example, if a person walked right past your home or wandered around your yard before finally coming to your door.

The Spotlight Cam Pro also has a completely new design, with what looks like a mesh cover on the bottom of the camera body. The design also looks taller and slimmer than the current Spotlight Cam, but we’ll have to wait to get one in our hands – or our homes – before passing judgment on the new design.

The Spotlight Cam Pro comes in a few different configurations based on how you want to operate it. There is a plug-in model, a battery-powered model and then a solar-powered model.

Plug-in and battery-powered versions cost $229.99, while the solar-powered model costs $249.99. There will also be a hardwired model available later this year. You can sign up to receive more information about its pricing and availability here.

Spotlight Cam Plus Solar


Ring also announced the new Spotlight Cam Plus, a lightly redesigned outdoor security camera to round out the Spotlight Cam range.

The new design isn’t the only new feature the Spotlight Cam Plus brings to your home security setup. Spotlight Cam Plus also adds color night vision, which is a feature we’ve found to be worth the investment on devices like Ring’s Doorbell Pro 2 and Floodlight Cam Pro.

As for the new design, it’s similar to the standard Spotlight Cam, except the Cam Plus seems slimmer and has a redesigned sensor housing at the bottom of the camera.

Ring is taking pre-orders for the Spotlight Cam Plus in all configurations – be it solar, battery, wired or plug-in – all of which are priced at $199.99 and will begin shipping on October 26.

Ring alarm panic button (2nd generation) Wall

The small, circular unit can be mounted on your wall or placed on your bedside table, providing quick and easy access to call for help immediately. You can choose whether you want it to call the police, doctor or fire. The button is compatible with all ring alarm systems.

The $29.99 Ring Alarm Panic Button is available for pre-order now, with deliveries starting November 11th.
