Before we even begin to compare All-New Ring Stick Up Cam Battery vs. Plug-in vs. Elite, let us clarify something. There’s been confusion between different generations of Ring Stick Up Cams. Late 2018 Ring released All-New Gen 2 Ring Stick Up Cam Battery and Ring Stick Up Cam Wired, and in Q4 of 2019 Ring released an upgraded All-New Gen 3 line of Ring Stick Up Cams.
So here’s what actually happened, Ring rebranded Gen 2 Ring Stick Up Cam Wired into the Ring Stick Up Cam Elite. The cameras are literally the same, just a new name. Oh, and the Elite one now comes with a PoE adapter.
And instead of the Gen 2 Ring Stick Up Cam Battery, Ring offers the All-New Gen 3 Ring Stick Up Cam Battery/Plug-In/Solar. All three Gen 3 Ring Stick Up Cams are pretty much the same camera with different power options. They all have a compartment for the battery pack and a Micro USB port for either a plug-in adapter or solar panel. It’s just if you buy the Ring Stick Up Cam Solar, you get a solar panel with it, and if you get the Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-in, you’ll get a micro USB charging cable instead. You get the idea.
So today, we’ll be comparing the All-New Ring Stick Up Cam Battery vs. Plug-in vs. Elite. There are a lot of great features that these three smart cameras have in common. But generally, the rebranded Ring Stick Up Cam Elite (aka Gen 2 Ring Stick Up Cam Wired) has a slight edge in pretty much every metric: it takes everything that’s great about the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery & Plug-In and gives it a bit of an upgrade.
So, let’s get into the details about the differences and similarities between the Ring Stick Up Cams Gen 3 and Elite.
If you’re in the market for home security, some cursory research makes it obvious that there are a ton of options out there to keep your property protected. From traditional security systems built into your home wiring, to basic DIY options that offer simple protection for bargain prices, there are options out there to suit pretty much anyone’s needs. If you’re looking for easy access to comprehensive security, a one box solution like SimpliSafe may be just what you need.
While SimpliSafe may not be a household name at this point, they are actually a pretty huge name in the smart security industry — having been around for more than 10 years and with a valuation of over $1 billion.
The third-generation SimpliSafe system has recently hit the market, so there’s no better time than the present to dive into what this security solution has to offer.
With superior design and better integration with third-party products, the new SimpliSafe system is the brand at its best.
The Arlo Pro 2 camera is one of the best wireless cameras on the market, and the All-New line of Ring Stick Up Cams that received a revamp earlier this year makes it a worthy competitor. Which camera is best is really going to depend on what you’re looking for when it comes to video monitoring.
The Power over Ethernet features of the Ring Stick Up Cam Elite make it one of our favorite options on the market. And flexible power options of the Ring Stick Up Cam Gen 3 from Battery, Plug-In to Solar make the camera super versitile. However, at the same time, the AC & Battery option with Arlo makes it a good buy as well. Regardless of your choice, you’ll likely be more than happy with the features each brand has to offer.
Each camera has their pros and cons, and we’ll go into detail while comparing the Arlo Pro 2 vs. Ring Stick Up Cams. Read on below for the big picture, or use our navigation bar to jump directly to the sections you care about most.
Some cameras have the ability to record all of the activity they see 24/7, which allows you to rewind the footage to any point during the day and make sure you’re not missing anything important. This feature is known as continuous video recording (CVR) and is offered either using cloud or local storage depending on the type of camera.
When it comes to smart cameras, CVR is offered as a separate subscription due to the large amount of resources it uses to store than amount of data. Motion-triggered recording is far less expensive than CVR, but having the option for 24/7 recording is great for those who need non-stop footage of everything that is happening within their home. CVR bypasses the flaw of a “cool-off” time that many motion-triggered recordings have that can potentially lead to the exclusion of important information.
Not every smart camera is a continuous video recording camera, but we’ve compiled the best of the ones that are to help you choose a model that will work for you.
