I am a veteran setting up a complete ring system for my house. The Doorbell Pro2 and the floodlight cam pro are on backorder - just my luck. Side note: I appreciate Ring giving me a 20% discount for my service. Thank you.
I need some experienced folks here to weigh in on my configuration. The back of my home has a covered 12X12 deck at the corner. I want my floodlight cam Pro - CEILING MOUNTED - to look across this deck and then down the 3 steps next to the back wall out over the patio and all the windows in the back. Maybe a 25-30 foot run. I have read about everything and could set this up easily IF and when my devices actually get here.
Potential problem, or is it:
My covered deck has a ceiling fan. I only run the fan when I am out on the deck and at that time I could care less about anything the Cam would report since I am there. When I am in the house or gone the fan is not operating. However; on a windy day the gusts can frequently cause the blades to slowly spin around. These blades would be in the covered area of the Cam Pro. My double slider is on this deck and I need 100% coverage of the space since its about 90 percent certain to be the entrance a “bad guy” would attack to get in.
If I set the Cam Pro to the highest setting “People only” would the fan be ignored in this setup? The cam will be in the ceiling at the corner furthest from the house and sort of looking in and along the back wall. That is the plan anyway.
Can a few weigh in with your thoughts? Moving my setup is possible but would be quite inconvenient.
