How does the Always Home Cam navigate to specific points in the house?
After you set up Always Home Cam you’ll place it back in the charging dock. Always Home Cam will only record video while in flight and will only fly when triggered via the Ring app or a linked Ring Alarm sensor. After the flight, it returns to the charging dock and begins to recharge its batteries. Once Always Home Cam is in the charging dock, the camera ceases recording video and the camera lens is physically blocked.

How safe is Always Home Cam while flying around my house?
Ring Always Home Cam has multiple sensors that allow it to navigate throughout the home. These sensors, in addition to the camera, help with obstacle detection. If a previously unknown object is in the flight path at time of flight, it will either return to the charging dock or land safely in place and send an error message in the Ring App. We also designed Ring Always Home Cam to be lightweight, and its shrouded propellers offer additional protection. When setting up the Ring Always Home Cam, the technology that enables the pre-set paths also ensures safety as it will only fly where it is supposed to. Additionally, the camera only flies autonomously and cannot be manually controlled.
