Keep a close eye on your home, even when you're not there
Ring's Spotlight Cam is more than a surveillance 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.
The Ring Spotlight Cam shines a light on potential threats.
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.
Part of your ring of security

More details on the Ring Spotlight Cam Wired
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 "wired" Spotlight Cam is powered by a 20' power cord. A battery-operated version of the Spotlight Cam is also available.
Camera: The wired 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 an exterior wall of your home. Once you have selected your mounting spot, you will need to first install and level the mounting bracket. The bracket can be installed directly onto wooden surfaces, or on masonry/stucco structures using the provided drill bit and wall anchors. Once the bracket is installed, the camera securely locks into place on the bracket. The camera has an integrated ball-and-socket adjustment that lets you position the camera for your desired view. The attached 20' power cable needs to be plugged into a nearby electrical outlet. You can paint the power cable to match your wall, if desired. Screw-down wire clips are included for securing the cable. The camera must be installed where there is a strong Wi-Fi signal. To help prevent theft, the camera has a covered security screw on the mounting bracket.
Wi-Fi: The Ring Spotlight Cam Wired 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. 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).
