If you’d like to make things even more secure, you can backup everything with an SD card stored directly on the device. 

It’s available today for pre-order for $249.99.

And finally, Amazon is announcing a new Ring Virtual Security Guard, a $99 per month service that’ll offer dedicated team members to monitor your home.
