If you’re headed out for a summer vacation, you want to be able to keep an eye on your home. It’s a great time to set up a system such as the Ring Floodlight Security Camera with Siren Alarm that will allow you to watch from any location through your smartphone, tablet, computer, or an Amazon Echo device with a screen.
This is more than just a regular Ring Doorbell Camera. It includes two floodlights and motion-controlled activation to shine a light on whoever lands on your doorstep, whether or not they were invited. Intruders may be scared away just by the floodlight turning on, triggered by motion.
The Ring Floodlight Security Camera also includes two-way talk and a siren alarm. The alarm will be set off if intruders aren’t scared off first by the floodlight. It requires a hardwired installation to keep the electronics safe in inclement weather and will monitor your home even at night with infrared vision. Keep the audio and video focused only on areas of concern to you with customizable privacy zones.
Connect the camera with Alexa, and it will alert you to any motion in its range. Use the voice assistant to speak with visitors by saying, “Alexa, talk to the front door.” You’ll be able to both hear and speak with the visitor through an Echo device, phone, tablet, or PC with a Ring Protect Plan (sold separately). Watch all the footage when you come back from vacation, as the camera records video and photos and keeps them for 60 days.
