Ring Stick Up Cam — is the world’s first and only battery operated outdoor security camera featuring two-way audio, motion detection, cloud HD video recording, and night vision and is totally wire-free. When used with Ring Video Doorbell, Stick Up Cam provides a full ring of security around customers’ homes.  Unlike traditional home security systems that only over video monitoring, the $199 Stick Up Cam also enables users to engage in two-way conversations with whoever is on their property in real time via their mobile devices. It is common for burglars to make sure no one is home before bringing it by simply ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door. Ring customers have seen burglars ring their doorbell and, if no one answers, break in through a back or side door in order to not be visible to the street. With the addition of Stick Up Cam, homeowners are provided another point of contact with visitors, and are better able to monitor, interact, and protect their entire home. With Ring, homeowners can give unwanted visitors the impression they’re home, even when they’re not, and prevent burglaries and crimes from ever occurring.  While Ring Video Doorbell creates a ring of security around users’ front doors, the wire-free Stick Up Cam, extend that ring around the entire home.
