Allison interviews Jamie Siminoff, CEO of Ring, about their new Floodlight and Stick Up cameras. The Floodlight Cam replaces the traditional motion detection floodlight but adds a security camera and two-way talk capability. The Stick Up Cam lets you hear and speak with anyone on your property and is battery powered with an optional solar panel. The Stick Up Cam is available now and the Floodlight Cam begins shipping in April 2017. The setting is the Pepcom Digital Experience show floor.

love my ring doorbell but you need a good WiFi router (mine is a Asus rt-ac3200) placed in the center of the home (usually in the living room) and as high as possible (mine is on the China cabinet) otherwise your audio/video will be choppy at night when interference travels further due to it bouncing off the ionosphere.
few tips that helped me get good video/audio.
– Turning on Adaptive QoS in the router settings and setting my ring doorbell and chimes as first priority.
– Switching my 2.4ghz channel to auto if you are in a WiFi congested area like me.
– Port forward all the ports listed on the ring website.
– Most important as stated above is a good router. (never use the WiFi router built into the modem) and good placement.
Can’t wait for the Floodlight to hit the market.
This is a long shot that you will see this, but I have not been able to get help anywhere else. I have the same router and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to forward the ports for the floodlight camera. During setup, it connects to the app, and then appears to connect to the router, but then gives me the error that I don’t have internet connectivity. I have attempted to forward the ports several times, but I think I am doing something wrong.
Any help or guides to forward ports would be appreciated. I think part of it, is I am not sure the IP address I have for the camera is correct and I think I need that.
