Amazon Ring Always Home Cam

September 2021

Amazon has launched Ring Always Home Cam, an autonomous drone equipped with a security camera that can move around customers' homes on pre-programmed routes streaming video.

Despite Amazon's claim that the Always Home Cam has been designed as a privacy-first product, commentators and digital rights advocates are concerned that the drone will inevitably erode privacy, especially when updates and upgrades are made, and jeopardise security.

Initially announced in September 2020, Amazon launched Ring Always Home Cam, Astro robot and a suite of other products at its 2021 Echo event.
