Sleep knowing you’re safe thanks to one of the greatest pieces of household security you can own.

Nobody likes to be worried when they’re at home. Whether it’s work-related stress, a sick pet or trying to cook dinner without burning it, everyone has something. Usually, worrying about intruders, vandals or any other kind of physical human threat isn’t one of them, until something happens. Well, if you want to act before something happens, one piece of tech that can give you the peace of mind you need, knowing you’ll know the second something happens that shouldn’t, it’s Ring’s Floodlight Cam Wired Plus.

Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Plus

Whether you’re home or out on the town, the Floodlight Cam Wired Plus will protect your home without you needing to lift a finger. Do you know what would-be intruders don’t like? Having the entire front or back of your house filled with light as they make their way to the door, accompanied by the shriek of the gadget’s siren. With complete control through the ring app, the Floodlight Cam Wired Plus does more than provide security. It allows you to hold conversations with visitors at your front door, gives you a live video of what the Floodlight sees and even has night vision. If your main aim is security or directing your food delivery driver to place the food in exactly the right spot without having to move, this is the product for you.

Key Features

Sleep soundly knowing you’re protected. Thanks to the Floodlight’s Built-in security siren and motion-activated LED Floodlights, if anything comes anywhere near the area this gadget lives in, it will scare off any wrongdoers and you’ll know about it instantly.

While the rule with floodlights is usually the brighter, the better, that isn’t always the case. I mean, you don’t want to be waking up to what looks like the gates of heaven opening just because your neighbour's cat walked on your lawn. Luckily, you can adjust the brightness to your liking.

Say goodbye to missed deliveries. While you might get an annoying delivery person now and then, thanks to Floodlight Cam's two-way talk capability, you will be notified when someone is at your door and be able to talk to them, no matter where you are.

Want to check on the kids out the back while you work? Stare at your dog while she naps on the porch or makes certain nothing untoward is going on at home while you’re out at dinner? Thanks to the 1080p HD Video, also available with Night Vision, you can check in at any time.

Drawbacks

  • While there aren’t many negatives to be found with this product, there was one that has popped up a few times. Sensor sensitivity. Users have complained about the ultra-sensitivity of the floodlight cam, with the floodlights unnecessarily turning on multiple times each night, disturbing their sleep. One user even turned off their motion sensor to catch some z’s, which totally defeats the purpose.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

If you’re looking to upgrade the security of your home, no singular product will do that better than Ring’s Floodlight Cam Wired Plus. Providing both the functionality of a security camera as well as a siren and motion-activated floodlight, it’s difficult to find anything better, no matter the price point.

Couple that with the two-talk feature and just generally being able to view the area it watches over whenever you want and it is just a great overall product. If anything it provides is something you feel you need or you are wanting to begin securing your home before something happens rather than afterward, this is the product for you.
