Hi guys, I am having a hard time deciding which Ring camera to buy, and really appreciate some advice.
Not being very handy, I would prefer having the battery-version cameras for easier installation, but the question is... can the camera battery tolerate the Canadian winter? I read an article saying the battery may not charge well below 32°F (0°C). On the other hand, I have a friend having the Arlo camera + solar panel and he said it is working fine in the winter. Does it mean Ring Spolight + Solar Panel should work as well? My front door is facing south and it should have no issues getting some sunlight.
Thank you for your suggestions in advance!
Thanks Tewitfield for your reply. I guess I would be better just getting the wired cameras instead.
sorry may be a stupid but why would you need to reset your battery camera after the power outage... would the battery cameras still be running during the outage?
i live in canada, just purchase ring camera, instruction says it needs at least 1 hr of sunlight. ,so if you mount it on the roof indirection of the sun.you should have no problem. you can buy a battery which i did, last up to 9mo. bought a back up. too
Thanks autumncolors1 for your reply.
Other than the sunlight, I am more worried about our winter cold temperature...
I read a review on amazon saying the battery will stop working if the temperature is under 0 degree... how is the battery camera working in your case? is it still working under 0?
