Ring's newest product is the Always Home Camera, a small drone that will fly inside your house, taking video along the way.

The company says the device is meant to allow users to access multiple views inside the home, even while they are away, without requiring multiple cameras. First, users will create a map of the inside of the home. Then, users can command the drone where to fly and record or set it to take flight when the Ring home security system detects a disruption. The camera will fly to and dock at the charging base on its own.

While docked, Ring says the camera cannot record, and the dock blocks the camera's view. The company also notes that the drone is noisy when it flies, so anyone who is present always knows when it is recording. It could be used to check whether an appliance was left on or a window ajar, Ring reports.

The Always Home Camera will be available for purchase in 2021 and cost $249.99.
