Ring redesigned its ring stickup cam to support various power options you can opt which one is suitable to meet your home security needs. How these ring stickup cam series are compared with Ezviz and Amcrest outdoor security cameras?
Ring Stickup Series
When folks need an outdoor security camera, generally what comes to mind is ring security camera or arlo before looking for products from other brands such as amcrest or ezviz or other brands that are sold cheaper in the market. Even though the price difference isn’t that big, probably a few tens of buck, but for those who take budget into consideration, looking for a comparison of similar products is a good solution.
Ring introduces various models of home security camera products including Ring camera doorbell, ring spotlight cam, ring floodlight camera, and this article we’ll discuss here ring stickup cam, one of most popular outdoor security cameras in the market. See also comparison between Arlo and Ring floodlight cameras.
What Ring stickup cam does?
Ring stickup cam delivers full HD 1080p camera resolution, supports color night vision with fixed lens and wide 110 degree view angle to cover the entire property.
Is 1080p camera resolution sufficient to monitor your property? Of course, the higher the resolution of security camera the more detailed the image will be, even when you need to zoom in to see objects up close. If the coverage of the house property being monitored is not too wide, then the live view without zooming in is sufficient with 1080p resolution, you can still see detailed images without zooming in.
However, if you need a surveillance camera that is capable of covering very wide area and capable of zooming in on distant objects in greater detail, 1080p is not the right one. What you need is a 2k or 4k resolution camera with optical zoom feature to get detailed objects in the distance.
Ring stickup cam is quite small; with a sturdy stand you can place it anywhere either indoor or outdoor. Especially for the battery powered model, there is no need to think about the power cable connection when it has to be placed in a strategic location for security surveillance where it is difficult to pull the power cable.
What about event alerts? Ring offers fantastic motion detection software that sends motion detection events with customized motion detection zones; you can live view locally or remotely via your Smartphone when you are on the go.

Ring Stickup cam vs Ezviz vs Amcrest
Let’s take two other competing products, the Amcrest Ash43 4mp outdoor cameras and most popular Ezviz c3w pro outdoor camera. Which one of these products is best to meet your home security need? You can refer to the following two spec comparison tables to help you get better insight of those products.
Which ring stickup model is to compare? We can take one of them, the plug-in ring stickup cam series which is commonly used.
One of the most popular ezviz cameras is the ezviz c3w pro which is equipped with two spotlights to provide light addition around it at low light condition.
On the other hand, we take one of the new products released by amcrest at a fairly affordable price is the amcrest ash43 which is a wifi camera with 4mp resolution, twice the resolution of outdoor cameras in general including Ring and also this ezviz c3w.
Ring and ezviz offer cameras with full HD 1080p @ 30 fps resolution, while amcrest provides twice the resolution of the two competing cameras. Technically a camera with a high resolution is more profitable, especially when you zoom in on your Smartphone with camera app, a 4mp resolution camera is sharper when zoomed in. In terms of resolution, Amcrest with 4mp resolution outperforms the other two products.
Ring promises color night vision, only if there is enough ambient light around the camera, if the ambient light is not sufficient it will only provide b/w night vision. Unlike Ring, ezviz c3w pro comes with two spotlights for color night vision. You can setup it to continuously turn on to provide ambient light thus providing color night vision. Or motion detection that triggers the spotlight so that it can provide color night vision.
Amcrest ash43 is just like Ring that requires enough ambient light to render color night vision unless it provides B/W night vision with IR LEDs.
In terms of color night vision, ezviz c3w pro provides the best solution with two bright spotlights to render color night vision.
When the camera detects motion, typically the camera will record a few seconds of video events and save the video footage into the memory local storage in the form of micro SD card. What if the camera does not have local memory storage? The data is usually stored on the recorder unit (NVR unit) or stored in the cloud.
Ring does not provide local memory on the camera or on the hub station but provides cloud storage services that you can access from anywhere even when you are on the go. In contrast to ezviz and amcrest where both provide local storage memory storage solutions with micro SD cards you can install up to 256GB.
