    1I've got a Ring doorbell, 3 spotlight cameras, and a solar powered spotlight camera for a corner where I couldn't (wouldn't) route electricity through the brickwork. The videos show up on my phones, tablets, and computers. Works well in bright sunlight as well as in dark of night. I couldn't be happier. As far as all your specs are concerned, I'm not techno-savvy and didn't understand a thing.
    Can you provide the model info on the solar panel camera?

    Thanks.

        Keeping this security camera thread on topic...So what's a good HD shotgun?

              FWIW I've read the DVR systems sold at Costco are not every good.
              I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
              I am armed out of love of those behind me.

                      Get this and no more charging;

                          Mine is under an awning and I haven't charged it since this install. It mounts in seconds using the same screw pattern.

                                It takes about 15-30 seconds for my cameras to load onto my phone from when I say "go". Not the end of the world, but not sure what you're expectations are.
                                Wifi to exterior ring cams are spotty. No ability to record to a sd card local and update to cloud later. Lose your wifi you lose all ability to record and replay.

                                the short video segments are limited and take a bit to reset for next captured video segments.

                                good for occasional light use. Also, no local power no record. Even with solar must keep panel clean and clear.
