Hi everyone i’m sithara ring and i’m here to talk to you about ring security cameras. You guys have been asking questions on what might be the best fit for you and we have the answers. So let’s get started when it comes to finding the right security cameras for your home. I know it can be really overwhelming to find what best fits your needs and will protect your home. But don’t worry ring has many different solutions, no matter what your situation is.
So when finding the right security camera for you, i like to ask a few questions. The first would be: is this camera going to be indoors or outdoors second would be? Do you need extra lights for extra brightness and then the third would be? How do you want to power this battery solar, hardwired? So, for example, if you wanted to put it outdoors and you wanted extra lights and you wanted to hardwire this, then we would recommend our floodlight cam or our spotlight camps.
So, let’s get into all the different security camera options now so the first security camera i want to talk to you about is our floodlight cam, which is actually one of our most popular products and i think a really cool piece. So it’s very customizable. It has two external lights and the camera in the center and the lights you can adjust to move up or down whatever best fits your needs and the camera you can rotate accordingly as well, so you can get the best view for whatever you’re trying to see It does require a hardwired connection and a junction box, and specifically, if you have an existing light fixture, it’s perfect. So if you have a flood light that you want to swap out to upgrade to a floodlight cam, it would be perfect if you don’t have one. You do need to install a junction box, so we would recommend getting a licensed electrician if you’re not comfortable with advanced diy.
Some other really cool facts about our ring. Floodlight cam is. We have a 270 degree range of motion for the motion: detection for the lights and the camera has 140 degrees, horizontal field of view with customizable motion zones. It also has a remote activated siren. My friend loves it.

So it’s been an added source of security because she has both of her lights and her camera [, Music ]. The next security cameras i want to talk to you about are our spotlight cams.
