We have a Ring doorbell at home & LOVE it! We live an hour away from our remote farm & have had some tresspassers lately. Before something illegal happens or someone gets hurt, we need to monitor better when we aren’t there. Trail cameras aren’t doing the trick as they have in the past apparently.
There are no phone lines nor internet at the farm. So I did a LOT of research on what I could do & figured out the wireless internet option that will work & went with a Ring Floodlight Camera since we love our Ring doorbell, that seemed the best way to go at the farm.
While it is working great, I am not getting much sleep. When I was researching the best option for the farm I was told this was it, it is hard wired, would reset itself when the power goes out (it does occasionally for short moments) & would pick up people & vehicles. This now seems possibly untrue (reviews I read before had were all good) or I am just a rookie at this camera.
Please can someone clear up my fears of turning on People Mode Only? I need to get some sleep instead of being woken up by notifications due to bugs, neighbor’s (up the road) dogs, buzzards, coyote, deer, raccoons, turkey & one lone, old cow (thus my commical community name LOL). I will test it myself next time I am down there…meant to do so when we set it all up, but we were mowing & working, we were so tired, we just plain forgot that we wanted to test that option.
Thanks so much!
