Many of us have spent the past year or so pretty close to home. But now, thoughts of summer travel are seeming like an actual reality. When you can’t be there to flick the curtains and peer at whoever might be strolling up to your digs, grab up a home security camera and put it on the job.
You probably know Ring for their doorbells that let you see and talk to whoever comes calling, whether you’re home or not. With its live image beamed directly to your phone, a Ring doorbell lets you know exactly when that package was delivered.
With the Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Pro, you get the same, real-time footage, but now the camera’s eye is directed at the driveway, the front walk, the garage — or wherever you point its motion-detecting, 1080p HDR-capture lens.
If something doesn’t look right, a tap on your phone will activate the 2,000-lumen flood lights or a 110-decibel siren. That should scare off any would-be intruders, marauding gangs of racoons, or a too-curious bear.
You can also use the Floodlight Cam to talk to whomever is out there. Meaning you can let the housesitter know how lovely things are in Hawaii as you lounge on its beaches.
