Use Your Ring Indoor Camera Safely Outdoors with this Protective Case

by Joel Manansala

One look at Ring’s lineup of devices and you’ll realize its focus on outdoor security. From weather-resistant cameras and smart lights to video doorbells and floodlights, it’s easy to look past its lone indoor camera, the Ring Indoor Camera (2nd Gen), and turn to the versatile Stick Up Cam.

Starting at just $59.99, it may not be the brand’s flagship device, but it still has a slew of fans thanks to its 1080p HD video, color night vision, and customizable motion zones, identical to (or in some cases, even better than) its more expensive siblings. Take the aforementioned Stick Up Cam for example, which retails for $99.99. While it may be suitable for indoor and outdoor use, its field of view pales in comparison to the Indoor Camera. The former has a 130° diagonal, 110° horizontal, and 57° vertical FOV, while the latter has a 143° diagonal, 115° horizontal, and 59° vertical. But what does this exactly mean?

The field of view (FOV) in smart security cameras refers to the extent of the observable scene that the camera can capture. A wider field of view means the camera can capture more of the surroundings, while a narrower field of view may provide more detail on specific areas but cover less overall space. In outdoor settings, a wider field of view is crucial, especially for monitoring activities at your front door. While we’ll have to give Ring props for making the Stick Up Cam outdoor-friendly, you’re probably better off with a dedicated outdoor camera if you’re after a wide FOV.

However, if you still want better outdoor coverage without paying $200, there's a solution available. You can effectively weatherproof your Indoor Cam with a $20 accessory – the Wasserstein Weatherproof Protective Case.
