The weatherproof Ring Stick Up Cam is currently mounted high on the exposed terrace of a surf shack on a beach about 30 minutes away.

The tiny beach house is basically a shipping container with a nice wooden deck, plumbing, and 6 watts of power.

Ring tells me that its cameras aren’t designed for such slow connections. The Stick Up Cam is meant for home security and that means relatively fast residential Wi-Fi and broadband.

As such, my video streams are choppy with lots of visible compression artifacts.

Key specs and observations: I love repurposing technology in new ways, or ways the manufacturer never imagined.

That’s why I adore the combination of the Ring camera, solar panel, and Android phone running a 3G Wi-Fi hotspot.

The audio drops in and out, and sometimes Live View just won’t connect (though it always kicks off a recording that’s stored in Ring’s cloud service).

These issues all go away when I bring the Stick Up Cam home, where my fast Wi-Fi network streams the 720p video fluidly and facilitates two-way audio conversations.When someone presses the Ring, I receive an instant alert from the familiar mechanical bell.If I’m not expecting anyone, I can wait a few seconds for the alert to appear on my phone so I can check the video.If it’s my DHL guy or a friend I’ll go downstairs to open the door.But if it’s some rando who wants me to worship their god, their petition, or their cause, I can just ignore it or tell them to go away.Prior to this, I’ve been using a Ring Video Doorbell (the company’s flagship product) for about a year.
