Ring peephole camera: Physical appearance (Design):
The Ring Peephole Cam, in silver, black, and blue, appears to be strikingly similar to its predecessors. Of course, as a peephole video doorbell, it’s the tiniest of Ring’s video doorbells.
You’ll put the camera over your peephole because it can catch your guests. Don’t worry—you’ll still be able to see them through your indoor peephole. The Ring Peephole Cam doesn’t take away any of your existing capabilities.
It operates in temperatures ranging from minus five to 120 degrees Fahrenheit inside and 32 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit outside. It has IP value of X5, so, it can withstand water jets from all directions and can withstand a few rainstorms.
The Camera is battery-operated, and the battery can be recharged, rendering installation a breeze. It’ll use Wi-Fi to connect to the Ring— Always Home app.
In the box, You’ll get the camera, which mounts to the front of your house. You will get a backing, which mounts to the inside of your door, right out of the case. A built-in peephole is still present on both the inside and outside of the house.
Because the inside portion is made up of two pieces, a baseplate, and a faceplate. You can access the battery by removing only the faceplate.
The baseplate isn’t really tethered to the door at the bottom. It(baseplate) pulled away from the door nearly every time we removed the faceplate.
Only the peephole at the top connects it to the entrance. So, while it didn’t feel like it was going to split, the bottom half pulls away from the door far too quickly.

Knock sensing: peephole camera
Motion detection is built into every doorbell camera we’ve ever tested. Even before they ring the doorbell, the cameras begin recording as someone enters your porch.
The Ring Peephole Cam has the usual motion detection feature, and knock-sensing. This camera can detect when someone is knocking on your door, even though they simply push the device’s “doorbell” button.
The Ring Pro, for example, is hardwired into your existing doorbell wiring. Obviously, the Peephole Cam must operate in a unique manner. As a result, it has a rechargeable battery pack.
The battery pack is located on the Peephole Cam’s interior side. When it’s time to charge it, simply remove it from the housing and plug it into a micro-USB port. It takes between five and ten hours to complete.

The Ring— Always Home app is where you can livestream video, get updates. Set up privacy zones, see and chat with guests, and set up your Alexa integration. On both the Google Play and Apple stores, the app has a 3.3 ranking, which is good but not great.
