With all the options out there about security cameras. I looked at two of them to get. Arlo and Ring. So which one did I go with? Let continue reading
After much looking and researching I decided to go with Ring. Yes, I went with Ring. You might be thinking why Ring?
When I got Ring back a few years ago. The ring had a better plan. Yes, right now Arlo has about the same pricing for the unlimited cameras. Before they didn’t have that option. It was $3.99 a camera a month. So that is why I went with Ring. Yes, I like the local storage option. But, if the scumbags get into your house, they could steal the local storage device and take the recordings along with them.
I just thought that Ring had the better options. I know people who use Arlo and they like it.
Did I make a good choice
I guess this is all based on opinion and we all have our own opinions. But, I think that I made a good choice. I like the plan, I like the cameras. Yes, there are some issues, but you will find that anywhere.
What did I get
- Doorbell Camera
- Spotlight camera’s
- Solar panels to power them
Now I am not going to tell you how many I have. But, I have cameras to watch out for those scumbags.
There are some issues I have with the camera’s like
- Detecting cars that drive by
- I changed the zones and this still happens
- Alerts not coming up like the commercials
- Sometimes it takes up to a min to get video of the alert
- Preview is slow
- Doorbell sometimes doesn’t ring the way I want it.
Not that big of a deal.
I would recommend Ring, I really enjoy them and the ability to look at the house while you are away from your home. It is a good way to discourage the scumbags who want to take things you work hard for because they are lazy.
