Ring’s $ 199 Spotlight Cam (£199/AU$ 329) beats out Netatmo’s Presence, the Kuna Light Fixture (now called Maximus) — and even Ring’s own Floodlight Cam — for my favorite outdoor camera with integrated lights.
That’s partially due to its comparatively easy installation. Screw in the baseplate, attach the camera and plug it into a nearby outlet — no hardwiring required. Its 1080p HD resolution and integrated motion sensor, LEDs and siren make it competitive in terms of specs. And, bonus: It works with Alexa and Google Assistant.
The Spotlight Cam is a strong option if you want a motion-activated outdoor light with a built-in high-definition camera. Just be prepared to pay $ 3 per month for cloud storage; you can’t view saved video clips otherwise.
