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

Ring also introduced new Smart Lighting, motion-sensing outdoor lights that work with Ring's other home security products.

As one of millions of Ring Video Doorbell owners, I can tell you the biggest issue with owning the device is the actual installation, which involves drilling more than a few holes in your masonry. It announced a "Smart Lighting" lineup that consists of wireless and wired floodlights, spotlights, path lights, and a step light.

In addition to these new products, Ring is also updating smoke alarms/carbon monoxide detectors, a burglary alarm, a flood sensor and more. The best part is Ring's Smart Lighting lineup is available to pre-order now, with shipping from 6 March. August's smart locks are going to work with Ring's system at some point in the future as well, letting you unlock the door through your Ring app.

Along with these lighting devices, the company announced the new Ring Door View Cam.

The $199 Ring Door View Cam is the latest smart doorbell from Amazon's smart home security company, Ring. This is a battery-powered device that's created to replace any existing door viewer or peephole. Ring's products now integrate with Amazon's Alexa, so you'll be able to use your Echo Show, Spot, Fire Tablet, or Fire TV to view who's at your door with just a simple voice command. This is ideal for people who live in places like apartments, condos, rental houses or dorms who can't or are not able to do extensive changes in their doors. It also has a sensor that turns the camera on if the person knocks, or does something else besides ring the doorbell. If the battery runs down, you can still see through the Door View Cam with its glass viewer.

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