5.0 out of 5 starsSo easy to install and works very well.

The camera is great and everyone just thinks it's a motion detecting floodlight which is perfect for keeping an eye on guests staying at our holiday house and also perfect for security when we are not there. I used the 2nd battery in my Ring camera which works well but obviously battery life is determined by how often there are people coming and going in front of the motion sensor. Overall though I'm very happy and now intend to buy 2 more camera's for our main house security.
Frustrating!!! Simple to set up, everything worked except the live video, would not even work when in the same room as the modem. Very occasionally the video came on for a few seconds then went off, returned the camera for a refund, ( no problems there ) not game to order another.
I think there's a million in-depth reviews out there so I don't need to go in to too much detail. A couple highlights (and lows) from me, though. THE BAD: - Night vision is terrible. This is something Ring is apparently working on but just be aware that isn't great. - Limited mounting options. You can't swivel the unit very far on it's base, which limits your mounting options. - If your yard/area you're securing has a slope, be mindful this is make detecting people very limited. - If you're planning to use this to secure a yard, the light is likely not going to be strong enough. Look at the Floodlight came instead. - Launching the app can be quite slow, even on a flagship phone. Be prepared to watch historical videos rather than expecting to see things live. - Always-on recording would be amazing. There are things out of the field-of-view of the motion sensor that I'd like recording (like our cars on the street)
THE GOOD: - Relatively easy to install and setup. I had to fabricate a bracket to mount the camera to but other than that it on took about 20 minutes to get up and running. - Alerts come in quickly to your mobile - Great viewing angle - Have fun scaring local pets and children with the siren!
