After having the Ring Video Doorbell Pro for a few months, I decided to double down and go with two of their other exterior cameras. In addition to the Floodlight Cam, I also went with their Spotlight Cam Mount.
I went with the Floodlight Cam for the rear of the house because there was no existing lighting besides garden lights. It does a great job of lighting the backyard up with it’s two 3000° Kelvin floodlights.
One cool feature this has is the ability to create custom motions zones that will trigger recordings and alerts. I took this feature a step further and used it to turn on exterior lights at night via SmartThings and Lutron Caseta. For example, if someone were to walk across my backyard at night, it will start recording in addition to the built-in lights coming on.
Additional features include infrared night vision, a 110-decibel siren alarm, two-way audio with noise cancellation and dual sensors with object and person detection.
