Ring, the security company acquired by Amazon for a billion-plus dollars last year, is having a dang solid CES. It’s easy to slip up a bit and lose momentum after an acquisition, as you get used to the new bosses, structure and logistics. But less than a year after being bought, Ring is coming out swinging with over half a dozen new products all meant to complement its existing lineup.

The new Flo by Moen detector looks a lot like the original Flo, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing as the original Flo was a competent but expensive monitor that could come in very handy if a leak strikes.

You want to be there for your loved ones — including those who are up there in age — no matter what, so you can help prevent the worst from happening. For times when you can’t be there, however, Walabot Home can serve as your eyes.

iOttie’s car mounts for phones are considered by many, including the ever-reliable Wirecutter, to be some of the best around. But you know what would make them even better? Mechanized robotic arms that reach out and grab your phone for you, securely holding it within their cold metal embrace while you drive. Or at least, that’s the theory behind the company’s latest Auto Sense Wireless Fast Charging Car Mount, which was announced this year at CES 2019.
Chaim Gartenberg, The Verge, iOttie’s new motorized car mount will clutch your phone in its robotic embrace
Ring, a name now synonymous with video doorbells, is making a product to help folks who already have peepholes in their doors. The Ring Door View Cam is a smaller piece of kit that can sit over your door’s existing viewer / spy hole. Sandwiched between the button and the camera lens is a piece of glass that’ll let you peer through the hole at your visitors, old-school style.
