If a delivery man comes, I can tell him where to put the parcel, from wherever I am.

I even have a record of how he handled the parcel - in case of any damage.

About once a month, I delete any recordings not required.

I'm not trying to sell it, but it works fine for me!

Oh! & the one in the garden records all of the visiting animals which jump in for a look around - deer, cats, squirrels, pikeys, etc

You have given me a brilliant idea! I had thought of trying to have a cctv set up for my garden, to keep an eye on the dog, or to check the gate was closed before letting her out. There is a security light (attached to the shed), which she can trigger, and Id thought of trying an electrician to wire such equipment into the same feed.

But now, a cheap video/audio doorbell would be the better and cheaper solution, and I could even install it myself. I have a wooden pergola/arch from the shed to the fence, which has the honey suckle and rose growing on it, but I wonder if it will take this device. If I attach it to the shed to face the gate, it would be in full force of the sun.

Re: Ring Doorbell.

Do you have to pay some sort of subscription to have this sort of security?

Re: Ring Doorbell.

FWIW...........
My next neighbour had several security lights, front and rear.
All stuff good I suppose. But then wondered what really valuables would attract burglars.

Yes.

I have two Ring floodlight cameras.
I pay a little under 25 a year for each. This is in order for all recordings to be saved to a secure internet site for a 30 day period.

It is not essential to do that, of course, but without that service you can only observe live feeds from the cameras.

Incidentally, I have yet to catch any burglars on them, but on the other hand I have many videos I saved of herons landing next to our fish pond and our little black cat shooting like a black bullet from the cat flap to chase a visiting fox away from her territory. I was impressed by her!

No contracts required with Blink.

The cameras, etc, hang into your WiFi system and the short camera recordings are sent to your Mobile and/or PC.
