The launch of a next-generation security camera from Ring has been delayed in the UK. The hold up was seemingly caused by an issue in the manufacturing process, with no word on when the Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera will hit the digital shelves on Amazon UK.

The all-new camera, which leaves anyone snooping around your home with nowhere to hide, was due to launch in the UK and United States on May 30, after it was unveiled earlier this month.

Speaking to GB News, a spokesperson for Amazon said: "We experienced a manufacturing delay that impacted our ship date, but we're looking forward to getting Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera in the hands of customers soon."

While the Ring brand is best known for popularising video doorbells, it offers a wide range of door sensors, indoor and outdoor security cameras, floodlights, and alarm systems. The latest addition to its line-up — the Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera — uses a motor to swivel in-situ to keep tabs on people moving in your home.

Ring has previously offered this functionality with an optional £34.99 motorised mount for its existing indoor security cameras. However, the Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera is the first time it's been incorporated into a standalone product. As a result, the new camera is much more affordable than buying both parts separately.

The camera can pan a full 360 degrees left and right as well as tilt 169 degrees up and down ...hence the name. Using that full range of movement, Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera is designed to peer around the room to keep its lens trained on anyone who shouldn't be there, pets who are home alone, or anything else that might be awry.

This movement isn't automatic, so you'll need to manually control the Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera using touchscreen controls built into the Ring app on iPhone and Android. Using simple directional arrows, you'll be able to point the 1080p HD camera at anything that's caught your eye inside your home.

And with colour night vision built-in, you won't miss anything — even in the gloom.

Amazon has previously offered a motorised base for its existing Indoor Cam products, allowing them to swivel and offer additional vantage points of the room, but this is the first time the technology has been combined into a standalone product 


The Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam connects seamlessly with other devices in the Ring line-up, including its best-selling video doorbells. This diddy camera is designed to be a useful companion to the range of video doorbells, helping to keep an eye on rooms that aren't covered by the feed from the front door.

Using the Ring app, you can set Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam to record whenever someone rings your Ring doorbell, or have it trigger a video recording when it detects motion.

The ability to swivel and pan the camera from anywhere in the world using the Ring app also means it's perfect for keeping tabs on troublesome pets — or larger rooms with multiple doors and windows that might otherwise be out-of-frame with a traditional security camera.

Since Ring is owned by Amazon, the system is tightly integrated with its AI assistant, Alexa.

If you have an Amazon Echo device at home, you'll be able to use the hands-free virtual assistant to start recordings from any of your Ring kit.

For example, you could say “Alexa, show me the living room,” to see a live video feed from the Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam on an Echo device with a touchscreen or a Fire TV. You can speak to people in the room via the built-in speaker on the Ring camera, as long as the privacy cover is not in use.

Covering the lens with the plastic privacy cover cuts off audio and video recording on the Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam. You can also adjust when the camera records, add specific areas within the room that are never recorded, and other privacy settings within the Ring app on iPhone and Android.

Ring will store recordings in the cloud for up to 180 days when you subscribe to its Ring Protect plan for £4.99 per month or £49.99 a year. This paid-for subscription also unlocks automatic parcel detection, lets you silence notifications for known faces, download up to 50 videos from the camera, and brings a preview of the video feed to notifications on your iPhone, Android, Fire TV, or Apple Watch.

As well as the launch of the Pan-Tilt Indoor Cam, Ring has also confirmed stylish new colours will be coming to the stationary Ring Indoor Cam line-up in July


Amazon increased subscription prices for its Ring Protect plan earlier this year, sparking outrage amongst long-term customers. Annual plans skyrocketed by £15 — a 42.8% increase — from £34.99 to £49.99 for the 12 months. It marked the second price increase for Ring Protect subscribers in recent memory, with annual plans costing as little as £24.99 (a little over £2 per month) over 18 months ago.

As well as the incoming launch of the Ring Pan-Tilt Indoor Camera today, Amazon announced plans to add new colours to the standard (non-tilting) Ring Indoor Cam line-up, including Starlight, Charcoal or Blush to help blend in with décor in your home.

It hopes to launch these from July 24 for £49.99 — there's no word on whether the manufacturing delays that have impacted the Pan-Tilt Camera have scuppered those release plans.
