    Its suppose to be an outdoor unit and should be water resistant from rain. Unfortunately this piece did not last for more than 3months. Water drained inside spoiling the piece. My advice, don't waste ur money on this item

    Because it is not possible to set security cameras to not detect and alarm on bugs and flying objects at night that are attracted to the infrared night vision I use these as the notification device that there is movement. (I know there are those experts that say you just need to know how to setup the motion sensors but I have wasted too may hours trying) I turn off the camera alarm notification at night because of bugs and use the Ring motion sensor to notify me of movement or persons in the view of the camera. Using these I can set the sensitivity on the cameras to better detect and record humans and most size animals. I live in rural Texas and have 14 high dollar security cameras and sleep much better using these rather than the camera notification at night.

    Works ok. Range could be better. I notice that it only detects at about 15 feet. I guess if you place it right it is rune. I bought two so it’s ok for me.

    Returned at last

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this to extend the motion alert far before any motion reaches the spotlight cam. However, after a few days of try and error + test, I decided to return this item because - The linkage configuration somehow has some issues with the motion sensor and spotlight cam. It is not promising that the spotlight cam starts to record when the motion sensor detects motions. - When the spotlight cam starts to record, it does not turn on the light at night time or even with a configurable time. - With all the issues above, even Ring cannot help me to configure properly and do as I expected. In terms of this motion sensor, somehow the distances are quite misleading. It only detects quite near and not even at 6' motion. With all that I experienced, asking for a refund is my final conclusion. Maybe it works well only with the smart lights but not with the spotlight cam ( let me know if that's the case )

    Could have longer detection range

    |
    Posted .

    The wireless motion sensor is so so. It only has a range of 15 feet which is a short distance for what I originally wanted for. It’ll be better suited for a narrow walkway or near a bedroom window to detect unwanted persons. Setting it up and installing it is easy, uses AAA batteries, and the device is small. I only bought one to test it out, I won’t buy another. Only recommended for small areas, not for large areas. It links up to other Ring devices to expand those security capabilities. Hope this helps you decide.
