Ring unveils its own solar panel for powering its Stick Up Cam security camera
Ring, the company behind a connected doorbell and the Stick Up Cam, has debuted a new product, the Ring Solar Panel. First debuting at CES 2016, the Stick Up Cam can be placed practically anywhere, and the Ring Solar Panel lets you power the camera wherever it ends up.
Like the Stick Up Cam, the solar panel can be mounted nearly anywhere, and comes with its own mounting bracket. You can tilt the panel up or down at multiple angles depending on your needs. The panel plugs directly into the Stick Up Cam using a micro-USB cable, and Ring says it can keep the cam charged with only a few hours of direct sunlight.
You can pre-order the Ring Solar Panel now directly from Ring for the limited-time price of $29, down from the normal price of $49. Solar panels are expected to start shipping in April.
