To date, we have installed three Ring smart home devices at Steph's house and one at mine. We have been impressed with the ease of installation, as well as the app setup.
As participants in the 2018 #smarthome campaign with The Home Depot, we are able to request smart home products to try out. Since we had already installed the Ring hardwired outdoor camera, as well as the plug-in version, we wanted to try out the battery one too!
We were sent a two-pack of of battery powered cameras to try out.
The easiest install would have been to put them on the house, but we wanted to be able to see the exterior. We needed to install them away and looking towards the exterior of the house.
Take a look at what we did, and how we gave them a bit of camouflage.
One of the concerns we had about this product, was expected battery life. Steph set up the camera in the house prior to installing it outside to monitor battery life. She found the battery lasted 50 days before needing to be recharged. Also, there is room for two batteries in each camera so, in theory, if two batteries are installed, you could get 100 days of use before recharging.
