What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No person detection without a video storage plan: Unfortunately, if you don’t subscribe to Ring Protect, the Ring Indoor Cam can’t tell a person apart from any other moving objects (like pets), so you may receive some unnecessary notifications.
  • No free cloud storage: Although Ring has affordable cloud storage, I wish it had a free option. More on this below.
  • Narrow field of view: At 115 degrees (horizontal), the Ring Indoor Cam’s field of view is slightly narrower than I wanted.

Bottom Line

Ring's most affordable camera is the Ring Indoor Cam, available for only $59.99 with no mandatory monthly fees. We loved using the Ring— Always Home app to check in on our living room from anywhere with Internet!
