Hello JLarpy, Yes it would cause issues. Ring Doorbells are not intended to be installed horizontally due to the placement of the motion sensor and there is not an option to rotate the video on these devices. We would like to ensure that you have a seamless setup experience. We are here to provide you the information that is needed to get your Video Doorbell 3 Plus up and running. Can you reach out to us today, so we may discuss your home’s environment and the best installation location for you? All the best, Antonio from Ring
Hi Rachelclear, No, there is not a physical switch in which the Ring Floodlight Cam can be controlled. You can, however, disable the lights when motions occur within the Ring App through the motion zones. You may also add the lights to a schedule which you can be controlled through a schedule or by toggling the lights on and off. To best address your concerns and ensure these changes are being made properly, we invite you to reach out to our support team to get connected with one of our product specialists directly. https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/213608406-Contact-Us Kindly, Caitlin with Ring

Hi DJ, These are great questions! Your Ring Doorbell 3 Plus is capable of being connected to existing doorbell wires that are rated between 16-24 VAC. While connected to existing doorbell wires your doorbell may alert you on both the internal doorbell chimes and your connected devices of a doorbell ring. If you do not have an existing or compatible doorbell, you may consider connecting your Ring doorbell to a Ring Chime or Chime Pro. This will ensure you are notified of both doorbell rings and motion alerts on your connected devices and in your home. The Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus will come with the appropriate masonry drill bits to install your device to a brick home. We would love to ensure your questions and concerns are addressed in a timely manner. Please reach out to us today, or at your earliest convenience, so we may get you connected with one of our product specialists. https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/213608406-Contact-Us Best, Caitlin with Ring

Yes, but you need to buy it separately.
You can pay 3 dollars a month, or a 30 one time payment for the whole year.
You will need to purchase the yearly contract at $30 to have your videos saved. Otherwise, it can only be used as a doorbell and to see what is happening in its scanning area.
Yes, it is intended to be a ringer, just like non-camera ringers ... except this one does not trigger the chimes in my home to actually ring. :(
