Converting Stick up Cam battery to Wired

I wanted to see if there was a conversion kit to make my battery stick up cams to wired stick up cam?

Good question @hu1! You’ll be happy to hear this power adapter will work with your Stick Up Cam Battery (2nd gen) to provide non-stop power. The indoor/ outdoor Micro USB power adapter is available on our accessories page at Ring.com. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

You say “…this power adapter will work with your Stick Up Cam Battery (2nd gen) …”. However, the description itself does not sat it’s compatible with Stick Up Cam Battery which requires a barrel connector not a mini. Do you actually have a power adaptor for Stick Up Cam Battery?

Since You are well informed, could You please show me where can I get original ac/dc adaptor for Spotlight Cam? There is place to plug in solar panel, so the same should be for adaptor.

Thanks

Thanks

I’d be happy to clarify further, @luckyluk00! The Stick Up Camera “Battery” and the Stick Up Camera “Plug-in” are one in the same. The major difference is what comes in the packaging when ordered (the battery/ plug). Thus, if you currently have a Stick Up Camera battery, converting it to plug-in is as easy as obtaining this Indoor/ Outdoor Power Adapter.

As for a Spotlight Camera battery, this is a much different model in which the battery powered version is designed to be powered by battery only. The Solar Panel and extra battery slot are the only additional options for providing power or charge to the Spotlight Camera battery.

Will the 2nd generation stick up cam also work with a power adapter with a barrel shaped plug, or only with the adapter you have linked to?

I have a 2nd gen Stick Up Cam Battery. I’ve purchased a power adapter made for the Ring Stick Up Cam. It has a barrel plug on one end and a transformer/wall plug on the other end. The box states compatible with the 3rd gen Stick Up Cam Battery. Before I open this and then cannot return it, will this adapter work with the 2nd gen camera? It’s for my Mom’s camera. She lives in assisted living and no visitors can currently enter the building so I can’t check myself. The camera is our lifeline to her!

Hi @jawhite. If you check the plug-in on the Camera itself, you’ll be able to see if it’s a barrel-shaped plug or a micro-USB plug.

Strange solution as for me.
So far I thought that the safest solution for cctv cameras is ac/dc adapter + batteries (when you run out of ac).

I know I can use the solar panels. But camera on the house wall draws enought attention by unwanted people. What about if You put on the wall camera plus panel? Together they draw a lot of unwanted attention .

The strangeiest for me is fact, that I can’t buy original adapter from RING. Instead of this, all I can do is to buy one from 3rd party company like LANMU, OLAIKE or TYRONE.

Does it mean, those companies made reverse enginering and designed something which not supposed to work with Spotlight Camera battery?

Anyway thanks for respond.
