Wire-Free Indoor and Outdoor Security Camera
The Ring Stick Up Cam (Battery version) is now in its 3rd generation. After an initially bumpy road Ring has ironed some of the performance issues of earlier Gens and the new version is ready to face the world with confidence. In 2018 Ring was purchased by Amazon and has partnered with over 600 police departments through its Neighbors Program. The Ring Stick Up Cam Battery runs on batteries and uses WiFi to connect to your network. An optional Solar panel can be used to keep the battery charged. The included mounting hardware can be used to easily mount the camera indoors or outdoors without hassling with Ethernet or power cables.

Ring Stick Up Cam Battery HD security camera with custom privacy controls, Simple setup, Works with Alexa - White (3rd Gen, 2019 release)

Ring Stick Up Cam Design

The Ring Stick Up Cam looks almost identical to the Ring Indoor cam. The battery pack and weatherized shell add some size, flexibility, and about $40 to the price. The cylindrical shape has no resemblance to the earlier generations’ box shape. It’s available in black or white. Both colors have an IPX5 weatherproof rating.

The cleverly designed stand doubles as a wall or ceiling mount and allows for the cam to be adjusted to a multitude of viewing angles. The base of the camera twists off to allow the removal of the rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. The battery pack can be charged using a USB cable just like your smartphone and can last from 6 to 12 months.

Features

The Ring Stick Up Cam captures video at 1080p and has a 115-degree field of view. Four infrared LEDs provide up to 30 feet of night video in black and white. There are no motorized pan/tilt/zoom functions. This is to be expected in a battery-operated device because the motors that control the pan/tilt and zoom features consume more energy than basic camera functions. The camera includes video-based motion detection and two-way audio. It connects to your network using the using wireless N on the 2.4GHz band.

The Ring Stick Up Cam’s mobile app is the same one as used on other Ring devices and supports Ring’s Neighbors app which allows you to share recorded activities with other Ring users in your neighborhood. This allows a neighborhood of Ring users to check up on each other and create sort of a digital Neighborhood Watch program.

There are no local storage options available with the Stick Up Cam which is disappointing. Viewing is limited to live feed on your smartphone or using the Ring Subscription service which is called the “Ring Protection Plan.” It sounds like a warranty but it’s actually a subscription service. Kind of misleading but it’s affordable at $3/mo and can tie in with your Ring doorbell if you have one.

It’s possible for this camera to achieve a certain amount of integration with your Ring Alarm system and Ring Pro doorbell but it may require some calls to support. Since 2019 Ring has made some changes that make integrating these systems easier. Integration support is mostly found in the “Linked devices” feature in the mobile app. This integration allows you to have your Ring Pro doorbell start recording when your Stick Up Cam detects motion.

The Stick Up Cams mobile app also allows you to create motion zones, adjust the alert frequency, and set schedules that enable and disable your alerts. The camera also supports Alexa voice commands which is not surprising since the company was recently purchased by Amazon. It also works with IFTTT applets that allow it to integrate with home automation devices such as smart door locks and lights.

Performance

The Stick Up Cams live video feed using the mobile app is crisp, colorful, and very true-to-life. Alerts are reliable and arrive quickly when a motion event is detected. Unlike many cams in this price range, there was no noticeable barrel or pincushion distortion. The Black and white night vision video is very sharp and motion detection works as well as can be expected. Two-way audio was crisp and clean with little to no distortion or feedback.

Ring Stick Up Cam Setup

As with most security cams set up is easy. Once the Ring app is downloaded and you have created an account log in using your mobile app. On the Home screen click on “Set up a device” and specify “security cams. Scan the QR code and follow the prompts. An easy-to-follow setup guide is included. The setup routine will ask you if you’re setting the camera up indoors or outdoors and ask you to assign it a name. The battery will also need to be charged.

Next, you’ll be asked to connect the device to your WiFi network. It will only connect to the 2.4GHz band. Once you are connected the app will give you the option to do some customizations such as motion verification, privacy features, and integration with any Linked devices. The Linked Devices option allows you to integrate your camera with Ring Alarm systems, Floodlights, and doorbells.

Conclusion

Given the fact that outdoor security cameras are usually expensive and somewhat difficult to set up the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery is a good choice if you’re looking for a reliable, affordable outdoor camera. It offers good quality video inside and outside. The solar panel option allows for flexibility with difficult-to-access installations. The camera’s IFTTT integration with home automation devices, Alexa support and the ability to integrate with other Ring devices provide a range of capabilities you won’t find in other security cameras.
