July 23, 2018

To help make working from home more efficiently.
See who’s at your front door before stopping work.

Here’s how to choose the right one for you. Ring makes some of the best outdoor home security cameras on the market, but with five models to choose from, the selection can be confusing.

Do you want the more powerful Floodlight Cam, or the less visually obtrusive Spotlight Cam? Should you go wired or battery? Is the solar panel a good option for the battery-powered model?

The camera is the same in all of them, so there isn’t a difference in image quality, but there are considerations when it comes to night-time illumination and power source. We’ve tested them all and can guide you through these decisions.

Ring Floodlight Cam

This is the granddaddy of the range and it puts out some serious light: 1,800 lumens versus just 300 to 350 lumens on the other cameras. This is the model you’ll want if you need to cover a large area.

The two LED lamps look like an old pair of motion security lights and you can think of this as the same sort of thing. It needs to be attached to a junction box mounted on your house or, ideally, embedded into the wall.

Ring Spotlight Cam Battery

This is the simplest of the Ring outdoor cameras and is powered by a rechargeable battery. The camera has slots for two batteries and each is said to last about six months with average use, so you won’t be changing them all that often.
