We got a ring doorbell about a year and a half ago and have been pleased with how it works. The only downside was having to recharge the battery every couple months. When we heard about this motion activated flood light that was hard wired, we thought of giving it a try. They both work from the same app on our phones, so it seemed like a really easy addition to make. So we've had it now for about a month. We really enjoy the "live view" mode for checking on activity in our back alley. It also has very good resolution. If you have an existing floodlight, it's really simple to replace with the Ring Floodlight. The instructions were very simple to follow.

I want to say that I absolutely love this product. It is simply amazing, I find myself turning it on during the day just to see what's going on. The Ring Floodlight Camera was easy for me to install, I had an existing Floodlight over my driveway that was 15+ years old so it was due for a replacement. I have the Ring doorbell at my front door and love it so thought it would be perfect to have it on my driveway and be able to keep an eye on things. We've had a recent increase in car break-ins within my neighborhood so having this floodlight camera really helps me feel like I know what's going on. Installation was so easy.
This replaced my old-fashioned flood lights and is such an improvement. When presence is detected, the camera begins recording (the lights turn on also only if it is dark) and you are alerted via smartphone if you have it enabled. You are able to set the sensitivity for alerts. It has a 2-way speaker system and a siren you can turn on if wanted. It is VERY loud and would scare the wits out of anyone that should not be on your property. All of this is operated by your smartphone. There is also capability to program the lights to come on for a period you set (from dusk to dawn if you like). The video is 1080p HD and is so clear. I needed the ChimePro to extend my wifi range since this was very far from my router. Works great! Lights and motion detector can be rotated however you want them. Set up was easy to follow once my wifi was strong.

I've owned the Ring doorbell and Stickup Cam since these products launched and love the security and peace of mind they offer. I ordered the Floodlight camera when it came out to provide coverage our patio area and it replaced an existing floodlight. Having the added camera and motion sensitive floodlight system is great. The images are crisp and high definition. The motion sensor system performs great with options to turn off alerts, activate a siren and turn off/on the light. I highly recommend this and Ring's other cameras for any home or business owner.
I own 3 Ring Doorbells and two stick up cams and have been impressed with the performance of these devices.
When the floodlights became available, I ordered 3 of them. After installation, one went offline and started emitting a loud high pitched squeal. After spending an hour on the phone with Ring I was able to get the the squealing stopped and the device functioning again.
This evening, I was alerted by my Kuna porch light of someone at the door. I could hear the same high pitched squeal from the Ring floodlight. There was a police officer at the door responding to a noise complaint. I am over 400 miles away at this time.
I had to call a friend that has a key to drive 30 minutes to my home and turn the power off to the floodlight.
When I get home, I will need to borrow an xtension ladder so I can push the reset button on the Ring Floodlight and spend another hour on the phone with the Ring support team.
This product is just not quite ready for market. Two of three have failed. When can I expect the third to fail?
These cameras work reasonably well if they are placed extremely close to a powerful wifi signal. Good luck if you are working with marginal signal strength. My samsung SmartCam and nest cameras performed much better at med-low signal strength. The design of the camera is great, I like the app interface, and the led lights work well. The one huge caveat is that the cameras need to be manually reset if power is lost to the device. This can prove to be extremely difficult if the cameras are located in an inconvenient location, and renders the cameras worthless if you are away from home. Not a real security camera in my opinion. There needs to be a warning label on the box!
The ring company has made wireless security simple with such a wide array of multi use products. Their newest addition to the ring family is the most practical product yet. This simple to install security light and camera combination has your yard and home covered. Just install the bracket to the electric box in place of your old security light attach the wires and mount the light to bracket. Turn the power back on and add it to your ring app. Simple. The two multi position lamps put out an amazing amount of light. The camera has a wide view and clear. The light comes with a manual activated siren which will get everybody's attention. You can also carry on a two way conversion from the unit. You can also control the lighting with many options. The security zone setting for motion detection and light activation has six points of control just amazing. The only downside is the making sure your connected to your home internet even using the wireless extension from ring it's difficult to maintain a good connection with all four of my ring products at the same time. And the two way voice connection quality is determined by the internet connection as is the video quality. So I'm still trying to balance out the connections to my products but they do all their designed to do. Their customer service has a can do attitude that really gets most issues fixed. Well done ring.

Awesome, easy to install, even picked up my neighbors cat minutes after installation. My security company surveyed my home for cameras, motion detectors, and a DVR. The estimate was over $4,000! Forget that! Now that I have the Ring doorbell and security light plus camera to my system, under $500 which beats 4K any day. Also, using the cloud for storage is much better than a DVR. Thank you Ring for a great product!!

Motion Light Feature does not work! The light just come on every night and remain on. I do not have it setup that way. Ring customer service sounded great on the phone but they need a day to research on there back end to see if they could fix it. Its been 5 days and I still havn't heard back.
