    Thanks for all the responses. It seems the Arlo is the best fit for me. My concern is camera sensitivity, i.e. battery life. For those that use Arlo, do waves (wind blown) turn the camera on?

    Oh, more questions. For those that use Arlo and WiFi (hot-spot via cellular) do you have unlimited data plans? Is an unlimited data plan really needed?

    I’ve got the ring doorbell and stick up cams at my house. Absolutely love them. Motion trips automatic recording, you can ‘answer’ the door and talk from anywhere, and any motion notifications will pop up on your phone prompting you to access live stream if you wish. It will record for a couple of minutes when it senses motion regardless. Being able to adjust the motion zone sensitivity and proximity is extremely handy. Wi-Fi is needed for these to work though.

    I have several Ring cameras at my house, they work very well. I ordered the battery powered camera and solar charger for the boat, the camera came in, but no solar charger. I called Ring, they said the Solar Charger shipment has been postponed indefinitely due to product issues, still waiting on my refund... In the meantime I mounted the battery camera to a tree behind my house, works great, been a few weeks and battery still at 90%, there a space for a 2nd battery too. I get motion alerts on my iphone, and there are LED's that light up when motion is detected. You can even hit the alarm button and a 100db siren turns on. You can also hear audio as well. Just looks a little box-ish. Great product.

    a couple of answers on the arlo ones. You can select how sensitive they are to motion or sound. The battery lasts around two months and they have a solar attachment as well.

    I have Arlo at home and on the boat, running off an AT&T hotspot. Works well.
