Ring Security Camera

Ring Security Camera

When all of the Lake Wisconsin flooding happened last year, I installed a security camera system at the lake house that would allow me to remotely keep tabs on the dock, boat lift, and boat. I went with an inexpensive wired security system, which worked well but broke over the winter when a tree branch hit the wiring. This spring, I wanted to find a simpler solution. After investigating a lot of options, I decided to go with a WiFi-based Camera from Ring. The first step was to install a WiFi range extender in the house to beam WiFi down to the dock. I used a Linksys range extender that had enough power to get the job done:

From there hooking up the Ring Camera was easy, and the mobile app UI is slick!
