NEWS – As I continue to try to build my new DIY cost-effective security system, I really want to preserve the ability for it to integrate with my smart devices, and with new smart devices when they become available. Recently, I wrote a news story about the Ring Alarm Home Security System, which I really like and plan to try if I get my hands on one. However, what I did notice was that the starter kit does not come with a security camera. Since I would need to start with at least one camera, I went in search of something that would integrate with the Ring Alarm Home Security System, and I found the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery HD Security Camera with Built Two-Way Talk and a Siren Alarm.
I really like that this security camera works with Alexa for voice control and that it also has a built-in 2-way talk feature that allows you hear and speak with the folks on the other end. It has spotlights on each side that provide adequate light for the recording that starts as soon as motion is detected, and the lights should also serve as a deterrent. Just in case more evidence is needed for an intruder to flee, there is a built-in 110-decibel siren that if integrated with the Ring alarm system, should mean that two 110 decibel sirens sound at the same time. The camera promises to be an easy DIY setup, and it is compatible with IOS and Android mobile devices, and Mac and Windows PCs.
If you would like to purchase the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery HD Security Camera, it is available on Amazon for $199.
