Ring announces new Video Doorbell 4 with color pre-roll video

Ring has quietly announced an upgrade to its flagship video doorbell, the Ring Video Doorbell 4, with minor improvements over the previous models.

The main new feature is colour pre-roll video, which is four seconds of footage captured before motion is detected. The Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus only captured this in black and white.

However, you’ll need to subscribe to Ring Protect at $3 a month, which also enables 30-day video history, snapshot capture and more.

The Ring Video Doorbell 4 also supports two-way audio, 1080p HD video and has “enhanced” WiFi capabilities, Ring claims.

The device will go on sale on April 28 for $199.99 in the US and on May 5 in the UK, priced at £179. It’s available for pre-order now.
