    Not infrared activated motion

    I have the first generation ring doorbell that is "infrared" activated motion which I love! It doesn't go off for rain, snow or leaves blowing on trees. It only activates motion alerts with heat motion such as people, animals and vehicles. It is very accurate. I love it! I purchased this new spotlight cam to put on my shed outback thinking it was infrared as well but it is not! It triggers motion from pixel disruption.. meaning anything that moves this thing is going off. Light snow, rain, shadows from trees, leaves blowing around. This thing was going off every hour all night long for just some light snow. Very disappointing. After giving it a month I will be returning it. I am bummed out because it does have a great field of view, the led lights work great! Lights up a large area but not worth all the false motion alerts I'm getting to my phone even on the lightest settings. I did call customer support , which they are very pleasant to work with but we could not come up with a fix as its not infrared. I really hope they can bring back the infrared and use it in these new spotlight and floodlight cams giving customers a choice between the two different motion activated sensors. "Pixel or Infrared", to fit everyones unique needs.

    This is a plug-in not a hard wired product

    I wanted a wired vs battery camera so I went with this. I wish they had an actual hard wired camera. Essentially this could be easily unplugged and it wouldn't work. We ended up drilling a hole and plugging this into our garage vs plugging it in outside-the cord would look terrible. If I was to do it all over again, I probably would have just bought the flood cam. Ring is a great service, happy so far with the brand, just not so impressed with this camera.

    We have not been sort impressed with these cameras. We have had to get 2 replacement flood light cameras due to moisture getting in the camera. Also, the doorbell camera isn't the best. It doesn't always pick up motion until it is right in front of it and other times it picks up movement on the road and we have the parameter set up to end at the sidewalk. The picture quality is really good.

    You cannot hardwire this camera. It has to be plugged in. If you decide to hard wire it instead or run the wire through a hole so it’s plugged in inside the house instead of outside you void the warranty.

    We installed 4 of these cameras around our house. The camera has great photo quality but wiring for power is hard to install as you have to deploy new power outlets to install these cameras.

    I bought a few cameras from ring , the door bell and the floodlight but I ended it returning this one because you need to plug it to an electrical outlet , if you don’t mind that then it will work for you

    Bought this instead of the doorbell because it had a light for night viewing. The light could be much brighter. View looks much the same with light or no light. Daytime is excellent.

    The camera is good but the motion part has a lot to be desired. A lot of false alarms and if you set the sensitivity low it sometimes does not catch anything.

    Installation was a bit painful but went easier with help from technical support. The camers age fast in this heat need to be undercover.

    I bought the Ring for my grandmother who is in assisted living. Unfortunately, it wouldn't connect to the router.

    For a day time camera it is great. The night vision is very poor. We have our porch and garage lights on and still poor quality.
