Making a wireless security camera truly wireless
I recently stumbled upon an oddball mix of technologies that I’ve cobbled together into something so geeky that I can’t help but admire it. I have a $49 Ring Solar Panel powering a $199 Ring Stick Up Cam security camera that connects to the internet via a Wi-Fi hotspot running on an old Android phone plugged into a power outlet. Right now this amalgamation is mounted in my family's weekend getaway spot where it functions as an intruder alert system, weather camera, and daddy-can’t-come-to-the-beach-today video proxy.
