Would like to mount (4) security cams around our house with one on each side. This is a 2-story structure with gabled ends, so mounting heights for under-soffit install end up being much higher than Ring’s examples.
Could someone clarify if throw distance of the sensors will be an issue for these locations? I can cut a piece of blocking angled as needed to adjust coverage for the height vs. distance out from the house (cap with brake metal as needed). Ring instructions suggest a level install will have a 30’ range if mounted 9’H.
South Side - Garage Gable
* 15’H at building wall
* 20’H above sidewalk level
* stop sensor monitor zone at sidewalk, 26’ out
West Side - End Gable
* 25’H at Building Wall
* 26’H above sidewalk level
* stop sensor monitor zone at sidewalk, 38’ out
North Side - Low End Eaves
* 17’H above deck
* 24’H above backyard low
* stop sensor monitor zone 40’ out
East Side - End Gable
* 20’H at building wall
* 22’H at sideyard low
* stop sensor monitor zone 25’ out
I’d like to keep mounting heights up for better protection of the device, along with less obstruction by trees. Please let me know if this is an option.
Two other questions:
Is the flood light verison required to get decent lighting/detection at these heights?
Does the ‘people detection’ feature omit movement of trees? Ours tend to sway when it gets breezy.
Please let me know.
