Ring’s smartphone-connected doorbells offer a convenient way to see who is at your front porch without scurrying to the door. Recently, the smart home brand announced a new Stick Up camera with a built-in 5200mAh battery. Problem is, that power supply will run dry.

In a smart move, Ring is now bundling its Stick Up Cam with a solar panel that will provide a consistent power source. It solves a lot of the headaches that come with a remote camera setup and still enables access via the iOS or Android app. The camera automatically detects movement, has a built-in speaker/mic and works with IFTTT. The camera itself is available for purchase today for $199 and comes bundled with the solar panel at $249. Rated 4.5/5 stars by nearly 300 Amazon customers.

The world’s only wireless outdoor camera with two-way audio allows you to see and speak with your visitors anywhere. Monitor your property in real time, and view and interact with visitors in brilliant HD from your smartphone, tablet or desktop. Wire-free and weather-resistant construction allows you to mount the Stick Up Cam anywhere with the included tool kit. Stick Up Cam alerts you to any motion around your property—day or night. With motion-activated alerts, HD video and 2-way audio, you’ll always know what’s going on.
