Now that Amazon owns smart security camera and doorbell company Ring, it used its surprise event in Seattle to announce a few Ring device updates.

One of those is an all-new Ring Stick Up Cam, which will be released later this year.

Even though it was previously teased during CES in January, we didn't have much information on it at the time.

However, we now know that it is a 1080p device with two-way talk, much like the Ring Doorbells. It will notify your smartphone, tablet or computer when it detects motion - all through the Ring app for iOS, Android, Windows 10 or Mac.

A siren feature is also available to help scare off intruders. You can set it to go off remotely.

The US price for the new Ring Stick Up Cam is $179.99, and it is available for pre-order now. We haven't heard a UK price yet but will update when we do.

In addition to the camera, Amazon also revealed that new features will be coming to the Ring Alarm. And it is releasing an API for the Echo Show that will enable live video from Ring security devices, including the doorbells, to be streamed on the smart speaker's screen.
