Ring Floodlight Cam Review
Ring® Floodlight Cam Review - A Dream Security Spotlight
My wife doesn't like our new Ring® Floodlight Cam.
"You're a creeper," she says to me. That's because our Ring® keeps a vigilant eye on who comes down our driveway. She doesn't like to be watched so she's not happy with me. I tell her, "Just don't go up the drive."
That goes over like a lead balloon. 😉
But I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Ring® Floodlight Cam because I can see who's coming, I can talk to them and the floodlights make it look like daytime when they come on. It's a marvelous piece of technology.
All Parts Included - Tools Too!
When you unpack the Ring® Floodlight Cam, you'll soon discover you have everything you need. Check out all that came with mine:
Lights, Sound, Siren and Motion Detection
The Ring® Floodlight Cam comes with LED spotlights - this means no bulb changing. WOOT!
It's got complete audio so you can listen to what's going on outside. You can talk through the speaker too.
If you want to scare away any people of interest that cause the lights to come on, you can touch your smartphone screen and activate a siren.
Oh, and you can record all of this and Ring stores everything!
Easy To Install the Ring®
I've installed plenty of outdoor light fixtures in my career. Ring decided they wanted no hassles so the developed their own base or backplate for the floodlight. The rubber seal ensures everything to be watertight as long as you read the red sticker and put that at the 6-o'clock position!
The Ring® App
The first thing to remember after you install the floodlight on the wall is to turn on the power to the fixture.
You'll see a light start to blink inside the motion detector under the black camera box. The fixture even talks to you!
The instructions tell you to then install the Ring® app on your smartphone and follow the easy steps to activate the floodlight.
It took less than two minutes for this all to happen on my phone.
Here are some screenshots of what I saw on the app. It was SO VERY INTUITIVE!
The Ring® Floodlight Cam is very very nice. It was easy to install, it works and the floodlights are BRIGHT!
My wife will still call me a creeper, but I don't care.
I love my Ring® Floodlight Cam, but not as much as I love She Who Must Be Obeyed!
