Ring Stick Up Cam review: A companion camera for the Ring Video Doorbell

 

The weatherproof outdoor camera lets you keep an eye on the rest of your property.

Customizable motion-detection zones ; Live stream includes intercom feature ; 720p video

Narrow 80-degree field of view ; Can't view surveillance video clips without cloud subscription

The Stick Up Cam is an attractive outdoor camera that probably makes the most sense if you’re already invested in a Ring Video Doorbell. It’s easy to see how a few Stick Up Cams around the outside of your home with a video doorbell on your porch would...

Ring Stick Up Cam review

 

Complete with 720p live video streaming, motion-sensing capabilities and an optional cloud storage service, Ring's $199 (£159) Stick Up Cam is strikingly similar to the smart home startup's Ring Video Doorbell , which comes at the same price. The only...

It's weatherproofed for outside use and you can power it via its built-in rechargeable battery, the included USB adapter or a neat solar panel accessory.

Audio quality was spotty during testing. You have to pay for event-based cloud storage. Its 80-degree field of view doesn't cover very much ground and the live video stream often looked grainy in testing.

The Ring Stick Up Cam's flexible power sources give it real appeal, but other standalone DIY cameras offer more for less.

Ring Stick Up Cam

 

The Ring Stick Up Cam is a wireless outdoor security camera that installs in minutes and interacts with other smart home devices, but has a narrow field of view and requires a cloud subscription to view recorded video.

Sharp daytime video. Very easy to install. Completely wireless. Works other connected devices.

Narrow field of view. Requires cloud subscription to view recorded video. Two-way audio could be clearer.

Conclusions With the Ring Stick Up Cam you can monitor outdoor activity and view recorded video of events that are triggered by the camera's motion detector. It's completely wireless, takes minutes to install, and offers sharp and colorful 720p daytime...

Ring Stick Up Cam Review: Solar-powered security

 

There's a tricky balance to be struck when you're designing an outdoor security camera: do you go with the convenience of battery power, or the performance of wired? Ring 's Stick Up Cam attempts to straddle the two, offering the flexibility of a...

Ring Stick Up Cam and Solar Panel combo provides peace of mind

 

At a glance 6-12 month battery (without solar panel) Two-way audio Infrared LEDs for night vision Pros Easy to install, with most tools included Wireless design means more mounting options Cons No way to schedule quiet hours Cloud recording will cost...

Easy to install, with most tools included ; Wireless design means more mounting options

No way to schedule quiet hours ; Cloud recording will cost you an extra $30/year

The combo of the $50 Solar Panel and the $199 Stick Up Cam is a powerful one, in that it takes away one of the biggest drawbacks of the wireless design by eliminating the need for charging. Ring says just a few hours per day of direct sun exposure will...

Ring Stick Up Cam review

 

Ring's Stick Up Cam is one of a small number of smart security cameras designed for outdoor use. Is it worth the price tag, or should users opt for more traditional CCTV systems? We've spent some time with the Ring Stick Up Cam, and here's what we...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

A hardy, reliable product

 

SummaryI have owned (2) of these fine cameras for several months now. I added the solar chargers as soon as they became available (a lifesaver for those not good on ladders !). These function well, day, or night...sunshine or in the heavy Fl rains. I...

Ease of mounting, nite vision, weather resistant, good video quality

I would like a zooming feature

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Unable to get it to work, even with their technical support

 

Don't buy it unless you want a lot of frustration and headaches.

none!

Their setup process is so bad that a guy with a Computer Science degree has to call their technical support. However, ever they were unable to get it to work.
