We recently installed a couple of Ring Outdoor Security Cameras at Steph's house as part of our participation in The Home Depot's smart home campaign.
These cameras are battery operated, meaning we could install them away from a power source. This gave us a lot more flexibility in their placement.
We decided to put them where they could "see" Steph's house rather than "see" out away from it.
Take a look at what we did, and how we gave them a bit of camouflage in the form of a birdhouse "slipcover."
