Just as easy or hard(depends on how you see it) as any other wireless camera. The nice thing about ring, is their cloud based storing.

Storage options are as follows:

Basic is charged per camera. So if you have multiple Ring cameras, you'll need multiple Basic Plans to cover each. With Basic, you can review, save and share your Ring videos at anytime with anyone. It costs $3 per month or $30 for the year.

Protect covers an unlimited amount of Ring cameras. So you can have as many Ring cameras as you like, and you only pay one flat rate. Just like Basic, Protect lets you review, save and share your videos, but you also get added security and a 10% discount on future Ring purchases. It costs $10 per month or $100 for the year.

Make sure you do all the math before you invest in solutions that call for a higher initial investment, and come with additional costs - including just protecting the product from theft, which is one of the prime values you're buying it for to work FOR you.

It doesn't take much to provide 'low hanging fruit' for thieves and vandals, with low-cost 720p cameras on a cheap BNC system, then back it up with hidden 940nm tech. Always assume criminals are smart enough to eliminate obvious security cameras.

Ring is going to release a new line of cams with 1080p video. These are 720p.

Their Ring doorbells will be replaced for free if someone steals them, but u have to file a police report. For these cameras, there is lifetime purchase protection, for which I couldn't find much info. U might wanna call and ask.

While true per se, you will still be hard pressed to find a wireless no fuss camera system with no storage unit requirement and live view in any other brand or store. These cameras, even at 720p, are far more resolution than actually needed. Plus you wont find these 2 cameras and 2 solar units for even close to $299.99 anywhere. Not to mention, if you hang ANY camera low enough for a would be thieve its going to destroyed or stolen so I find that point to be an invalid argument on any system. I love mine and do everything I want them to do seamlessly, effortlessly and conveniently

You missed the point by a fair margin.

720p easily seen BNC cameras can be bought all day at or below $20. So placing them in conspicuous positions, while installing 940nm bulbs that can't be seen in the dark, along with good night vision cameras capturing unknowing criminals, is far more preferable and sustainable.

It seems you don't have much direct experience with this, so your ignorance is more on the innocent side, than wonton. Any direction you choose to go, I wish you well.

Ring Stick Up Camera: 720p HD Video, 80 degrees

If you plan to use these for potential ID purposes:

Please remember to place them close enough to the target / subject / suspect to be able to get a good ID image as well as at 8 feet or less high to get a good angle for a facial image, unless you can get the subject to look at the camera for a good facial image.


ID spec distance and associated area max covered calculations ( 100ppf+ ):

This is the theoretical max based on raw pixels from the horizontal resolution and the FOV.
Actual real world results will be decreased due to the quality of the camera ( glass vs plastic lens, compression quality, sw/firmware,... ), installation view, as well as environmental conditions ( low light, haze, fog, glare off snow, water rain,.. ).

Practical meaning: Place your cameras in such a manner that any suspect / subject you wish to potentially ID is within this ID spec distance, as well as in a placement which will give you a high likelihood of obtaining a good facial image ( mount camera 8 feet or less high ).

The IR LEDs are not meant to be user replaced in cameras. (*)

Best option would be to buy a separate IR illuminator at 940nm and turn off the IR of the camera if you want stealth.

( * - you can find replacement IR LED rings - however that is getting into "hacking" the camera territory - i.e. may need to solder .. )

[ also note, some cameras already come with 940nm IR LEDs - however 940nm does not illuminate IR as well as 850nm - so most cameras still use 850nm to get more illumination range at the expense of having a red glow to humans from the LEDs ]

This is a good deal. I think I got my stick up for $130 at BB with visa check out a while ago and the solar panel for $25. My panel only gets direct sunlight for about 30 minutes a day and it stays at 100% most of the time with about 20 triggers a day.
