I have just installed my Stick up cam and solar panel on the rear of our south-facing back garden after I had used the stick up cam indoors for a couple of days for a few days. I initially installed it yesterday with 73% battery now for some odd reason it decided to not work at all so I had to do a hard reset and this time after I had installed the solar panel lead into the cam it has convinced itself it is hard-wired to an electrical socket and it shows a green battery with a power symbol, is this correct? I appreciate the power drop to 57% is due to the installation and checking it works correctly etc. though it is a significant drop in power.
I am considering purchasing a second battery though I would rather not due to costs and the fact that Ring sell the Solar Panel as a reasonable top-up system for the battery.
So I suppose I am asking do I need to
A. change the power source selection?
B. Is the solar panel just a trickle charge or is it a reasonable source of power to charge the battery?
C. Do I need to buy another battery and was this just a neat piece of sales by Ring.
