FYI - for those new to security cameras,

Battery powers do not function as well as wired to power one, so keep that in mind when comparing your options.

Um? These actually work great. I prefer these to the wired ones. I used to be a blink and nest user. Then went to arlo.... Ring is superior.
Hi Taps,

Can you define what makes it great?

The side by side reviews of the battery operated stick up vs the wired to power ones I have seen clearly indicate the battery operated ones are not as good as the wired to power ones.

The stick ups were honestly trash. I sent those back within 2 weeks and got these. The batteries last longer for me then the Blink XL. Blink XL was horrible for me as the sun set them off every 30seconds. Every time the sun went behind a cloud or behind a tree it would trigger.

I'm looking for a security camera for the outside of my house. Does anyone have any good experiences with these? I am looking for battery powered ones, don't want to run wires. I can add on a solar power charger for better battery. Looking for something that can record reasonably well, motion detection, live view, and two way talk, seems like it fits the bill.

HI Bravose,

If you need reliable cameras avoid consumer battery operated ones, the technology is not there yet.

If you own the house, then the most reliable and cost effective on the longer term is a wired setup.

I do own the house, but wiring set up is something I can't do myself (not good at electrical/running cables) and I don't think hiring people is worth it. I would at most want one or two outside. Battery operated wireless is for sure not ideal, but the simplest way for me.

I have these...got the 2 pack deal with solar panels and they work great! You just need a good strong WiFi signal. The picture quality and wide angle lens is really good.

Hi Bravose,

Everyone who is able bodied is capable to DIY cable their homes, and some homes can be fairly easy ( 1 story with an accessible attic or homes with vinyl siding ) - it is more as you suggest a question of willingness to do the project.

I personally eventually gave in, as the wirefree cloud dependent products just fail to be reliable.

I have one I set up in a tree facing the back corner of my house which allows me to light up a blind spot as well as give full 360* coverage of the back yard. Battery lasts about 6-8 weeks, and I have 2 batteries in each. Ring sells the second battery for 39 bucks. Totally worth it. Have a second spotlight currently wirelessly running in my sunroom to watch the dogs while I'm at work. Seriously works great.

I had the opposite experiencw. I am a huge Ring fan and I have free lifetime storage for being an early beta tester. The battery spotlights are TERRIBLE. they miss most events, the battery last 1 month and they fail to load live feed or record all the time. Blink XTs are way better. Battery last 6 months to 2 years under the same scenario and yes they pick up everything, but I prefer them to pick up everything than picking up nothing (like the ring). I returned my 2 spotlights with 2 ectra batteries and 2 solar panels (yes I really wanted them to work).

Yes the Spotlight cams in theory are way better than blink: siren, lights, two way audio, huge field of view. But the basics dont work.

Blink XTs are not amazing they are mediocre aswell, like some people have said: the technology is not there... if you can, get something wired, if you cant, then get arlo pro or blink xt.

The wired spotlights are awesome, same as the floodlight.

I am going to beta test the new stick up cams but they are more aimed at indoors.

If you do not want to or cannot run wires the battery operated is acceptable. The difference is in motion settings where the wired can set certain specified areas. The battery on the otherhand is set on distance. I have both but prefer the wired.

I had 2 of these battery ones from Lowes and returned them after 2 months. I had to take them down every 2 weeks to recharge them. Not to my liking. I am waiting for a deal on the wired ones. Just thought I'd give my opinion on it. I had them outside and they were triggered maybe 2-3 times a day. Signal was strong as I had the ring pro wifi extender.
