The Stick Up Cam can monitor all areas of your home, whether indoors or out, in 1080p video that you'll be able to view using an app on your smartphone or tablet. It features night vision, two-way audio so you can both hear and speak to anyone on the opposite end of the camera with the app, and a slim design that can mount just about anywhere.
The wire-free model features a quick-release battery that's rechargeable so you can get the camera back to work quickly, while the wired model requires a few more installation steps but won't need to be tinkered with much afterwards. If you don't know which is right for you, we've compared the Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In and Battery versions to help you decide.
Check in on your home with Live View on-demand video from anywhere and get notifications on your mobile device when the camera detects motion. You could even pair it with an Amazon Echo Dot so you can hear alerts around your home. Both versions come with everything you need to install and set your new camera up properly.

I picked up a stick up cam and a wired ring cam in 2020 and they are not great devices. The stick up cam is unreliable at best - often the live feed doesn't launch at all or it takes several attempts to access the feed. The field of view on the camera seems fairly wide which is nice. They start you with a free trial of the service which saves the footage to their cloud so you can access it at any time - it doesn't have to be live. But once the trial is over, it's a paid monthly fee to access anything but a live feed. They have settings for alert zones so you can adjust how sensitive the alerts are - to get alerts for people or vehicles vs omitting alerts for animals or general traffic, etc. I found the zones to be frustrating because at first I would get zero alerts in the notification zone unless I picked up the camera and physically moved it. It wouldn't alert me when someone walked by the camera outside or when a vehicle would enter/exit the alert zone. After adjusting the alert sensitivity settings several times it would start sending alerts for the slightest movement - like wind blowing through the bushes. It went from zero alerts to over 30 per hour. It was a tedious process trying all the sensitivity settings and there was never a good accurate spot so I ended up muting it completely. The notification zones for the stick up cam are basically useless and regardless of the sensitivity level, it never triggers alerts in the notification zone unless the camera is physically moved. The wired cam is more reliable than the stick up cam for accessing the live feed. I have it connected to my Amazon Echo show device which allows me to use voice commands to bring up the live feed. When it does launch the feed, it takes a few seconds but it is nice to be able to pull that up without digging into the app. The stick up cam is much less reliable and the Echo show will often just show a loading screen and then either tell me it isn't available or it will just get stuck on the loading screen. The Ring app is how everything gets set up and where you can set your zones and sensitivity levels. After I had initially set up both cameras, the Ring app wouldn't let me connect to the wired cam at all saying it wasn't connected to power (while it was physically hard wired and plugged in at all times). So obviously there was some kind of app-hardware handshake error but it went on for more than a week while I fiddled with unplugging, resetting, reconfiguring, etc. Battery life on the stick up cam is not bad - but I honestly think that's in part because of how often I can't even access the live feed. Recharging the battery takes about six hours - so unless you buy a spare, your cam is down that whole time. Overall I would not buy the stick up cam again due to how unreliable it is. The wired cam is the better option but you're still dealing with the Ring app and subscription model if you want to access feed history rather than just live feed. For the function vs price, I really don't recommend these.
