About Ring Security

The Ring security cameras provide a lot of functionality and quality without a lot of frustration. The Ring Stick Up Cam allows for both indoor and outdoor camera functionality and provides an HD camera with night vision, a siren, and numerous mounting positions. This is, perhaps, the easiest camera to install for reliable video control.

A second option is the Ring Spotlight Cam. As a security camera, it offers good quality and uses LED spotlights and sirens to scare away unwanted visitors. An impressive feature is the 1080p HD video quality and wide-angle camera lens. The picture quality is fantastic, and the built-in speakers and mic allow you to communicate with anyone outside the home.

Yet another option is the Ring Floodlight Cam. For those who want more power and light, this camera works well. It is only available as a hardwired camera, but it also provides very bright LED floodlights and a siren you control through an app. The video is high-quality, and the siren gets up to 110-decibels for a very loud sound.

Each of the Ring cameras provide a lot of functionality and overall good use. They are reliable, well-built, and easy to upgrade with additional cameras. Check out the full review of Ring cameras here.

Mobile Alerts

Ring cameras all provide a connection through a mobile app. This easy-to-use app allows for messages to be sent when the cameras sense motion in the detection zones. These notifications allow you to then take the action you desire.

Remote Control

When an alert occurs, it is possible for users to connect with the camera through the app. The remote control aspects of the Ring cameras include the ability to sound a siren to scare people away and zoom in to determine who is there. It is also possible to flash the lights, which can help catch the attention of anyone in range.

Voice Response

Each Ring camera allows for two-way talk. This feature allows individuals to speak directly to anyone around the camera. It also permits users to hear nearby individuals. As a result, you can determine whether or not you should scare them away or welcome them into your home.

DIY Installation

Most Ring cameras offer DIY installation. However, this characteristic depends on your level of skill, as well as the actual camera selected. The battery and solar-powered versions are easy to use, and the Stick Up models are simple to install. The hardwired versions require more electrical knowledge, and in some cases, we recommend professional installation.

Smart Home Options

Ring cameras work with Alexa. If you own an Amazon Echo or another Alexa-enabled device, you can control your Ring cameras through voice commands. You can also use the Amazon Echo Show and Fire TV to view what is happening on the cameras around your home. This type of control allows for more opportunities for you to use your device both inside and outside your home without having to leave your seat.

24/7 Monitoring

Ring cameras feature high-quality night vision capabilities. This aspect allows your cameras to monitor your home 24 hours a day without fail. If you are away from home at any time, Ring provides a reliable system that works for you. They also send you alerts anytime there is detection in your field, allowing you to monitor your home from any distance.
