Ring Outdoor Smart Security Cameras
Ring outdoor security cameras come in a variety of models, the main variations are based on the power source and there is also an option to add floodlights. The Spotlight Cam Battery version uses rechargeable batteries and can be placed anywhere within range of your 2.4Ghz wireless router, no need to worry about having a power source nearby. The batteries last 3-6 months and a solar panel can be added so you never have to worry about it recharging them. The Spotlight Cam Wired is the same camera but with a plug for a nearby outlet and the Spotlight Cam Mount, version is wired directly into a junction box replacing an existing outdoor light. For larger areas such as above a garage door, the Floodlight Cam is a great option, it features two additional LED floodlights. It is free to monitor the cameras in real-time with the app and a 30 day trial of cloud services is included after that it is $3/month to view past recordings and $10/month for unlimited cameras at the same property. If you’ve already got a doorbell and are now considering adding security cameras, it makes sense to save money and buy a multi-pack. It is important to note that the Ring camera system is 100% dependent on having a strong internet connection, if your internet connection goes down the system is worthless. There is no local backup or way to access the cameras outside of using the app.
