Ring is launching its Battery Video Doorbell Plus with a battery life that’s up to three times better than the company’s first doorbell.

Battery Video Doorbell Plus offers advanced features including a 150-degree field of view (both horizontal and vertical) and the highest HD resolution of any Ring battery doorbell at 1536p. The expanded field of view makes features like Package Alerts with a Ring Protect subscription more useful, as users can check on deliveries on their doorstep and receive notifications as soon as a package is detected within a specified zone.

“When we first imagined the video doorbell concept more than 10 years ago, we knew that choosing a battery power source would meet the needs of the widest variety of customers possible,” Ring chief product officer, Jason Mitura said.

“We’re excited to announce the launch of Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus, the most significant update yet to our battery-powered family, with energy-saving features resulting in a battery life that is up to three times better than our first Ring Video Doorbell.”

Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus also includes features found in previous generations including Customisable Motion Zones to specify where the device detects motion and Privacy Zones to exclude areas from the camera’s field of view for added privacy. Users can also set up Quick Replies to pre-set responses for visitors when users are not available to answer the door, and use Live View and Two-Way Talk to speak to people in real-time.

Like other devices in Ring’s range, Battery Video Doorbell Plus is compatible with Alexa, to see, hear and speak to visitors through an Echo or Fire TV device. It also has a quick-release, rechargeable battery pack, and the ability to connect to a Ring solar panel for non-stop power.

Ring Battery Video Doorbell Plus will be available on Ring.com and Amazon from 13 April for $289 or with Ring Chime for $309. It will then be available for purchase from more retailers in May.
