Ring Security System

Recommended Posts

Does anyone use the Ring Security System? I'm looking into these, but would like to hear about some first hand experience with it first. Ring has some pretty good Black Friday deals, so if I'm going to purchase, I want to do it soon.

I use Blink Camera's .... so far so good ! Only thing is you need WIFI for the Camera's to speak to the control module !

Yes. I have one near my front door. I don’t use it as my doorbell, but just a camera. It’s great. I see every delivery dropped off, etc. I only have to charge the battery once every few months. Also it’s great for at any time you can click into the app for a live real time look. Nice to see weather at home etc

I have heard the arlo cameras work well too. Totally wireless and can move them around when ever you want.

I have two, a battery motion light/camera in the back yard and a wired floodlight/cam on the garage. They both work very well with a great picture and a wide picture that covers the whole yard. The batteries for the front camera last pretty well, usually two or three months between changes. 

If you suscribe to their monitoring system, your cameras are covered if anything happens to them. I had an issue with the front cam and the customer service was excellent.

They both have microphones and speakers that allow two way communications and a pretty obnoxious siren in case of emergencies as well.

I have an Arlo camera.....works great....and long battery life. Plan on adding a few more to the house now that the addition is down and we have a slider that goes directly into the house from the back yard covered porch.

One of my daughter's has one of the Ring Security doorbells at her home in Irondequoit . She often gets pics of deer in her front yard and at the apple tree .

On of my sons has one in Big Flats. There is a feature where you can share videos (if you want to) with your neighborhood. Turns out that black bears are frequent visitors and often show up on videos. He even had one video of a very nice cinnamon phase bear.

Yup. My neighborhood posts coyotes, bobcats, fox or “scary” people etc.

No not yet. All of my gear has been buried in storage.Just got it all moved into the house a couple days ago. I will be out soon though. Gonna go get the smoke pole and 300 dialed in at the range tomorrow. 
 

Been a strange year for me. Didn’t bow hunt, missed opening day of gun, and lot of other things. I’ll be back at it full tilt next season though.

I just spent ~$1100 on Ring cameras and accessories, so it's good to hear they work well! They had great Black Friday deals going on!

Welcome back WNY!!
