Hey! What’s up guys. Chris Majestic here with
Majestechs and this is the Ring Stick Up Cam. So if you haven’t heard of Ring, it’s a company
that makes an HD Video Doorbell. It was really successful last year. I did do a review on
it. I’ll link it up in the corner here. This is very similar to the doorbell. However,
it’s what they call a Stick Up Cam so you can put it wherever you want. So you’re still
going to get features like two-way audio communication, night vision, HD video, and a rechargeable
battery. So the battery on the Ring Doorbell lasts about 3 to 6 months depending on use
so I would imagine similar battery life with this. They claim that it can last up to a
year just like the Ring Doorbell but we know that’s not going to happen. So the Stick Up
Cam is priced at $199. Alright, let’s go ahead and get this thing unboxed here.
Slide this out. Alight so it looks very similar to the Ring
Doorbell. It feels like it has a metal design here. This is your pairing button. Micro USB
port here. Mounting screws. Just like the doorbell you’re going to get a screwdriver.
Here’s your bubble leveler/mount. The other part of it is here. We’ve got a drill bit
here and this is going to be your charging cable so again, it has a built-in battery.
So that’s going to be your charging cable there and you’re going to have your instructions
here. So this is going to be an 80 degree field
of view unlike the 180 degree field of view like the Ring HD Video Doorbell. This is going
to be weather resistant as well so that should be helpful. It comes with a quick-release
mount so that whenever you need to charge it you can easily pop it off of the wall or
pop it off of the ceiling. You have 3 different places you can mount to the camera and then
you have 2 pivot points. So you can mount it on a ceiling, on a wall, or even on a floor
if you would like. Once you get it to the pivot point where you want you can just tighten
the screw to keep it in place. So in the Ring app if you tap on the
Stick Up Cam. You’ll see the battery level here. If you tap on it, it shows you the actual
percentage level of the battery. You can turn motion alerts on or off. You can go to recent
activity and see activity that’s specific to the Stick Up Cam. You can adjust your motion settings just like you can with the Ring Doorbell and you can adjust your alerts just like the doorbell
as well. So whenever the camera senses motion you’re
going to get a popup on your phone or your tablet that says accept or decline. If you
decide to accept the call or you just leave it up on your screen and don’t do anything,
it will record out to the cloud for about 15 minutes. If you decide to decline the call
it will go away and it will still record about 40 seconds.
So it seems like they fixed the motion issue. As I said before, the Ring Doorbell had an
issue with motion and I believe the issue may have been resolved because the Stick Up
Cam has a more narrow field of view. So it’s probably easier for motion detection and the
motion detection is very accurate. After testing it, even if there’s motion on the very end
of the frame, it will pick it up and start recording right away.
So the cloud recording service is an additional $3 a month or $30 a year just like it is with
the doorbell. Unfortunately, you don’t get any discounts if you have multiple Ring devices
so if you wanted to have both of these devices you would end up paying $60 a year or $6 a
month. And just like the Ring Doorbell they will cover this for theft. So if someone steals
your Stick Up Cam for whatever reason, you just file a police report, give it to Ring,
and they will replace it for you. One of the biggest issues I have with this camera, and
I had the same issues with the Ring doorbell, is that there is no video on demand option.
So if you want to just view the camera from your phone, your computer, or wherever, you
can’t just hit a button and look at the camera. There has to be motion in order for you to
see anything from it. I honestly feel like this is a huge drawback. Ring has addressed
this concern with it’s customers and they seem like they may be willing to add it in
the future. However, I feel like this is a huge issue.
