Our take on the Ring Floodlight Cam by Crutchfield's Emily S.
Upgrade your floodlights
Ring's Floodlight Cam is a powerful floodlight, but it's also much more. It's a security camera with a 110-decibal siren, and its companion mobile app is fully loaded with features. It does need to be hardwired, but it connects to standard junction boxes and easily replaces existing wired floodlights for a substantial home security upgrade with minimal effort.
Floodlight Cam's dual sensors provide 270º of motion detection, while the camera will capture footage within its wide 140º field of view.
Monitor your blind spots
Advanced dual sensors provide a massive 270º field of view for motion detection. When someone enters that motion zone, the ultra-bright LED floodlights come on and a notification is sent to your phone. You can then use the app to view live footage in real time from wherever you are. Keep in mind, the camera's 140º field of view may not capture every event that triggers the floodlights.
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.
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 Floodlight Cam Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Ring Floodlight Cam outdoor security camera can keep an eye on your property when you can't. It is equipped with dual, motion-activated 3000° Kelvin floodlights 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. The Floodlight Cam is hardwired into your home's electrical circuit (100-240V), and can easily replace an existing floodlight.
Camera: The 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 1800-lumen floodlights 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 Floodlight Cam is designed to be used outdoors. It is resistant to inclement weather and temperature extremes (-22°F to 120°F).
Installation: The camera is designed to be mounted on an exterior wall of your home, replacing an existing floodlight. A new 4" diameter junction box should be installed for optimal performance. The included mounting bracket installs over the junction box, and has 1-1/2" threaded mounting posts for securing the Floodlight Cam. After hardwiring and installing the camera, you're ready for setup with the Ring App and position the lights and camera.
Wi-Fi: The Ring Floodlight Cam operates on an 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connection on the 2.4 GHz band. The Floodlight Cam requires a minimum upload speed of 1 Mbps, however, 2 Mbps is recommended for best streaming performance.
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 zoom and pan for a better look, flash the lights, activate the siren, 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).
