  • Ring - Motion Sensor - Black
    Verified BuyerReviewed by RingFloodlightCam - December 26, 2020

    The item does what it is supposed to, the key is taking having a Ring Bridge and some planning. I have this item tied into my Ring Low Voltage Transformer. I have it positioned around the side of my house so that when guests come around the corner to the back of my house where I have built a deck for the neighbors to hang out after dark, it lights the deck stairs. I played with the location of the sensor several times so that the step lights come on just as they round the corner usually unless they are running. I moved it around a couple of times due to the slight lag between motion and the lights coming on. So far it has been great, and at a casual stroll the timing is perfect, gotten lots of compliments on my setup.

  • Could have longer detection range
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MrRoo - June 7, 2019

    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.

    I’m using this product as a mailbox sensor to notify my household when the postal mail arrives. While the device is a huge improvement over other sensors designed to detect mail delivery, this unit is hampered by a difficult-to-access battery replacement procedure. Overall, I am glad I selected this product over the competitors, especially due to its Alexa and Ring product integration.
