I just tested and reviewed the Ring Floodlight Cam. This security device is AMAZING. I’ve installed hundreds of outdoor fixtures, but none ever came with all the exact parts and tools you really need.You’ll LOVE the Ring as much as I do.
Got one on back of my house. Was waiting for them to drop for a while and finally managed to get one at a decent price. Camera is great, lights are bright, it does it's job well. I can't fault it.
Do not ever buy this product. It is expensive and is very problematic. Even with Xfinity high speed internet and Xfinity modem just 20 ft away. Often disconnects from wifi. Even with a Chime Pro! Have to continually reset it. Very often cannot get a live feed when away. Highly recommend do not water your money.

I've had a Floodlight Cam for about 3 months now, as well as Doorbell Pro (9 months) Chime Pro (9 months) and a Stickup Cam (2 months). I am reasonably satisfied with all of them, but they do have a few shortcomings. Video resolution is great., but there is a several second latency before you can see the video after a motion alert.
