Ring Floodlight Camera
Key features of Ring Floodlight CameraThe Ring Floodlight Camera has three big things going for it.
It’s a complete solutionFirst, it’s a truly complete outdoor surveillance solution. It isn’t just a night vision camera. It’s also a powerful floodlight, features a siren alarm (which you can manually trigger) and two-way audio. All of this is controlled, quite intuitively, through the Ring App. There aren’t many outdoor surveillance products out there which provide this all-in-one feature set.
The sensors are greatThen there’s the issue of sensitivity. Sensors have come a long way, and the Ring Floodlight Camera is built around the best quality sensors available for homeowners. Ultra wide angle and sensitivity of sensors means you end up with very few blind spots.
Zooming and panningFinally, it’s worth mentioning that the Ring Floodlight Camera is designed to take a step beyond simple motion activation. Motion activation (turning on when movement is detected) has been around a while. The Ring Floodlight Camera takes this a step further though by incorporating smart zooming and panning. This means it won’t just detect movement, it’ll follow it actively, giving you a lot more power to see what’s going on around your house.
What consumers are sayingAs of October 2018, this product had 2942 Amazon reviews with an average rating of 4.2 stars. Interestingly, there’s a marked contrast in the quality of older reviews (which are comparatively low) and newer reviews (which are consistently high). We’ll touch on that more in a moment. Of the positive reviews, many consumers mentioned that the Ring Floodlight Camera gets great support. Ring customer support is highly responsive and easy to access. People also referred to the camera’s highly sensitive motion-detecting sensors and the powerful options you get for tweaking what the camera will respond to. The negative reviews are interesting. There’s a marked contrast between the 2017 model and the 2018 model. It seems that the earlier model was less reliable but this had been resolved by 2018. Some critical reviews also emphasized that a careful choice of installation location is required for optimal results. Incorrect placement can reduce sensor range considerably. This is an important consideration and we recommend you work with us to get your installation and hookup done right. If in doubt, just call us at 1-800-919-6373.
How smart home friendly is this product?All Ring products are excellent for smart home friendliness. They are designed to communicate effectively with every product in the Ring ecosystem.

Ring is also in the process of incorporating smart home assistant functionality (Google Home and Amazon Alexa). This would certainly be a cool addition.

This is one of the beauties of smart outdoor cameras! You can configure these devices to recognize pets so that the number of false alerts you get is kept to a bare minimum.
