Hi all,


Had my eye on one of these for a while but they have been priced up at $429 for the Ring Floodlight Cam




Both are available from Dicksmith (yes I know the controversy) at $319 - I ordered on Sunday, received it today (Friday).

Don't these require some sort of plan?

$30/yr/camera or $100/yr/unlimited.

Yes you're right. I forgot about the subscription, that was an oversight on my part as I've been a Ring user since their Kickstarter days and cheekily have a lifetime unlimited plan


I think your pricing is USD as well, visiting should detect and display in NZD.


I was sure they used to have something like 7 days of free recording, perhaps that's changed too.


Still, the hardware is quite cool and easy to use once installed. You "can" install these yourself if you are willing and able but possibly best to get  a sparky to do it. Bonus having no batteries though!
