Ring unveiled a total of 13 new and refreshed products Monday at CES, including several items that customers have been clamoring for.

The Ring Door View Cam is the company's fifth video doorbell, and it's easily installed in place of your existing door viewer (aka the peephole), which is often found on doors in apartments and condos. The most notable is the Ring Door View Cam, a wireless doorbell that installs on top of the peephole or door viewer and can detect when people knock.

Ring Pathlight ($29.99) - Motion-activated smart light that is installed along walkways, driveways and other high-traffic areas.

Ring Floodlight Battery ($49.99) - Wire-free, motion-activated smart light ideal for illuminating the driveway, yard, and walkways that features a combined 600 lumens and adjustable mounts and settings.

There's also a motion sensor, which is created to set off lights around a home or property should it recognise movement, as well as a Ring Bridge, which will give the lights a range of 1,000 feet.

Wozniacki stunned by Andreescu in Auckland
In years to come, people may say 'I was there when Bianca Andreescu became famous'. "It's just such an incredible feeling". After taking time off to rest her back, Andreescu won a Challenger event last October at Florence, S.C.

In addition, the Ring Smart Lighting lineup will include a wired floodlight that connects to your current electric box that will be priced at $69.99.

In brief: Ring's new Door View Cam was designed for those living in apartments or rentals where drilling and hard-wiring a digital doorbell isn't permitted.

It is also introducing smart lock integration with triggering functionality.

Pre-orders for these Ring Smart Lighting products will be available on Amazon soon, and they are scheduled to start shipping in early March. It's completely wire-free thanks to a battery that sits on the inside of your door, the Door View Cam requires no permanent alterations, making it a great option for renters. If the battery runs down, you can still see through the Door View Cam with its glass viewer. Peepholes are centered in the middle of the door, in flawless line of visitors.

The Door View Cam will launch in the United States, as well as selected European markets, at some point later in the year, with prices starting at $199.
