Ring has made it ridiculously easy to surround your house with smart lights and cameras

[2019.10.09, Wed 00:05] For the past few weeks, I've been testing Ring's Stick Up Cam, Smart Lighting, and Door View Cam, each of which addresses a different need depending on your situation. Ring Stick Up Cam The $179 Stick Up Cam Battery is a battery-powered connected security camera, complete with motion alerts, full HD resolution, and night vision. Smart Lighting The new Smart Lighting line is Ring's first product of this kind, coming from the company's acquisition of lighting company Mr Beams. Simplified, the Smart Lighting line is a set of exterior lights and motion detectors for your home that are connected to the internet, so you can manage them and get notifications from them in the Ring app. The Smart Lighting system is easy to set up - you do it all through the Ring app, and it can be up and running in minutes - and requires no wiring or time-consuming installation process. Door View Cam Ring is perhaps best known for its video doorbells, which let you get alerts when the bell is rung, see who's at your door, and speak to them through your phone. You can get other video doorbells, security cameras, and landscape / security lighting for a lot less than what Ring charges, but you'll likely have to deal with much more complicated wiring power and connectivity, if connectivity is even an option.
