Review: Ring Spotlight Battery Cam

Ring’s range of security cameras have found a second lease of life as a way to capture wildlife through the lens.

Discover Animals tested out the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery to find out how it works.

The camera is really easy to install. It comes with all the kit to enable you to easily attach it to the optimum place in your garden. You pop the battery in first – although remember to charge it beforehand!

Then you set up the camera by installing the Ring App:


You’ll also find some helpful instructions on installation here.

Once I’d got the camera up and ready on the side of our cabin, next to the bird feeder, it was time to start collecting footage:


You can set motion controls to get an alert on your phone when the camera senses movement, which makes it easy to spot any wildlife activity; the camera also comes with a spotlight so you can film at night and an in-built microphone to allow you to speak through it, via your phone. It does warn you that using the motion sensor can run down the battery but I found that this didn’t drain it at all.

The Spotlight Cam Battery comes with a 30-day trial of the Ring Protect Plan, which means you can save, review and download any recorded footage to your phone. Once this ends though, you will need to take out a subscription – which starts at £2.50 per month or £24.99 a year – to keep access to footage, but once you’ve downloaded it, then you can save it anywhere you like.

All in all, it’s a great little camera, not only for wildlife, but also for security. Now I’m off to experiment with other possible vantage points around the garden!
