Our take on the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery

Ring's Spotlight Cam is more than a battery-powered camera. When motion is detected, the LED spotlights come on and a notification is sent to your phone. You can then use the mobile app to view live footage in real time from wherever you are. Press the talk button to have a chat with your visitors, or — if they are uninvited guests — press the alarm button to activate the 110-decibel siren to scare them off.

Keep a close eye on your home, even when you're not there

The Ring Spotlight Cam shines a light on potential threats.

Keep your battery charged

The Ring Spotlight Cam comes with a quick-release battery for charging up without taking the camera down. You can also purchase an extra battery so you don't lose coverage while the depleted battery is recharging. Or, pick up the Solar Panel accessory for totally uninterrupted power without the hassle of climbing a ladder to change batteries.

Optional cloud storage

The camera streams live footage to the app 24/7, but if you want to save or send video clips, you'll need a Ring Protect plan. Ring Protect is a subscription-based cloud storage service. The basic package ($3/month or $30/year) covers a single camera and allows you to save and share your Ring videos from that camera. You get a free, 30-day trial subscription when you activate your Ring device.

Installing multiple Ring devices? The Ring Protect Plus plan ($10/month or $100/year) includes cloud storage for unlimited Ring devices at a single location.

Smart home integration

I also have good news for Smart home fans — Ring cameras will work with Amazon Alexa and Google Home voice control assistants. If you have an Amazon Fire TV, or an Echo Show or Spot, you can ask Alexa to show you the live stream from your Spotlight Cam. Google Assistant integration means that you can ask Google to start a new recording, turn your motion alerts on or off, provide a health update on your Ring devices, or review your last Ring notification.

Ring Spotlight Cam Battery Reviews

Average Customer Review(s):

(1 Review)

We love our spotlight battery cam!

Marsha from Walnut, CA on 1/9/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We love our spotlight cam over the garage. It connected easily to our already installed Ring floodlight cam and chimes. It allows full view of the driveway, sidewalk, our community mailbox. The ring community is fantastic. These have been great products for home security. We installed a separate charger cord that runs inside the garage and plugs in where the garage door opener is.

Pros: Quick, easy to install, looks good outside, weather resistant. The ring app is great- offering many settings.

Cons: After the trial ends, you have to pay a small fee monthly for video storage. Not a dealbreaker.


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Ring Spotlight Cam outdoor security camera can keep an eye on your property when you can't. It is equipped with a motion-activated spotlight that can light up a wide area. With built-in Wi-Fi, you can view the streaming video on the Ring app directly from your computer or smart device. It has a microphone and speaker for two-way audio capability. This Spotlight Cam is powered by a long-lasting rechargeable battery. A wired version of the Spotlight Cam is also available.

Rechargeable Battery: The Spotlight Cam Battery comes with one rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery (3.65V, 6040mAh, 22.046Wh). The battery charges via USB using the supplied Micro USB cable, plugged directly into the battery. The battery charges in approximately 5 to 10 hours, depending on whether the USB cable is plugged into a USB port or into a wall outlet. A fully charged battery will last between 6 and 12 months, or approximately 1000 notification events. The Ring app will notify you when the battery is getting low. The battery has a quick-release clip that makes it easy to remove for charging. LEDs on the front of the battery indicate the charge level. The camera has a slot for an optional second battery to give you twice the battery life. The batteries discharge one at a time, so you can leave one battery in the camera while the other one charges.

Camera: The wire-free security camera has a wide-angle lens with a 140° field of view. The camera produces bright 1080p HD video in a Live View that you can watch on your phone, tablet, or computer. Adjustable motion sensors cover a 270° arc, and can detect movement up to 30 feet away (based on a 9-foot mounting height). When motion is detected, the spotlight will automatically turn on, and a notification will be sent to your smart device through the Ring app. Even with the lights off, the camera's infrared LEDs will enable the night vision.

110dB Siren: The camera features a 110-decibel siren alarm that will help scare off any intruders. The siren is remote activated from the Ring App on your smart device or computer.

Weather Resistant: The Spotlight Cam is designed to be used outdoors. It is resistant to inclement weather and temperature extremes (-5°F to 120°F).

Installation: The camera can be mounted on a wall or an eave. It has an adjustable ball-and-socket type mount, with a reversible sliding "ball" mount on the camera and a round flange "socket" for attaching to your home. There are no wires to connect. The camera must be installed where there is a strong Wi-Fi signal. A drill bit and screwdriver are included for installation. To help prevent theft, the camera has a covered security screw on the mounting bracket.

Wi-Fi: The Ring Spotlight Cam Battery operates on an 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connection on the 2.4 GHz band.

Ring App: The free Ring - Almost Home app pulls together all of your Ring devices, including Video Doorbells and Security Cameras. You can have multiple users on your Ring account, each with the ability to view video from any of the video devices. The app sends you an instant alert when someone triggers the camera's motion sensor, or rings your Ring Video Doorbell. You'll be able to see, hear, and speak to anyone on your property using your smart device. In addition, the app lets you create a virtual Neighborhood Watch and receive alerts from your neighbors. In the app, you can customize the Motion Zones, times for receiving (or not receiving) alerts, and how often to be notified for motion events. The Ring App is available for Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 9.1 or later, and for Android devices running version 4.4 and up. The app also works with Windows 10 and Mac OS.

Ring Protect: The Ring app includes a free 30-day trial of Ring Video Recording, which lets you save, review, and share recordings from the app. Ring Protect plans are currently* $3.00 per month / $30.00 per year for basic coverage (per camera), or $10.00 per month / $100.00 per year for Protect Plus (unlimited cameras).

Why did you buy this?

Security, its versatility [ Jason  Oct 04, 2018 ]
My neighbors saw my Ring doorbell; when I told them about the Ring video spotlight, we decided to order and install them. So I ordered one for myself and they wanted two. We all appreciate the security they afford, given the rise in crime...everywhere. You cannot be too safe. [ Nanette  Jul 13, 2018 ]
I have already purchased ring motion detector and Ring base and door sensors, and the camera will complete my alarm systems [ J  Jan 14, 2019 ]
Have Ring video doorbell and appreciate the security. Despite having an alarm system, I prefer being afforded the opportunity to stop someone from entering my home, instead of notification that someone has already entered my home. [ Nanette  Jul 13, 2018 ]
