After a next door neighbor had a break in at home, we were concerned with the lack of any security at our house.
Reading numerous online reviews (unfortunately choice hasn’t reviewed outdoor security cameras as yet) I spent $1000 buying the Ring Outdoor Cameras and spent the weekend installing them.
Well not impressed, after having numerous problems with video lag and quality (to the point nothing useable was being recorded) I turned to the www. It appears buried in the FAQs that Ring Cameras recommend a minimum of 2MBPS upload speeds for them to work properly.
Well that rules them out for anyone not (successfully) connected to a good NBN plan, as typical ADSL2+ speeds are 0.5MB. That rules them out as being appropriate for many/most households for the moment.
Is this a case of “not fit for purpose” in AUS? Should this be made clearer up front - a product that requires an internet connection that most houses cannot obtain to work is surely an issue!!??
Keen for other’s thoughts.
