I have a Ring Spotlight wireless cam with a solar panel on my front approach. It holds 2 rechargeable batteries and has a solar panel option (keeps it charged). Reliable so far, but remember it is only as good as WiFi being on, meaning a service outage, power failure without a UPS on your router/modem, or degraded signal and it is not working--the limitations of WiFi-based cams. I think the limitations are negligible risks, but worth noting.

4 of my neighbors in our 6 unit townhome building have the doorbell cam, plus my spotlight cam. I like the spotlight feature because I can activate it manually if someone is loitering near my door. As stated in an earlier post, the $30 annual fee for cloud storage is a bargain. I used to have a different set-up with free storage, but the device was a dinosaur compared to the Ring device.

The name of the suspect in the OP is known and has been published. He's known to have hit The Paseos and The Trails in Summerlin, and the west side (west of Ft Apache) of The Lakes. The picture of the car was taken in The Trails. This has been all over Nextdoor.

Suspect's name is Edson Manzano, per the above story.

No cables need. Battery live 2 years. No monthly fees like with RING, or NEST.
Amazon company.

I noticed this when looking at the Blink.

I like this idea since it would be easy to paint it all the same color as our house, and with the USB power connector (one is 20 ft long) it should last longer than 2 years w/o changing batteries.

There is one of those sync devices per 5 cameras. The sync device connects to the internet.
Since my pool equipment was stolen, I have installed 3 ring floodlight cameras and 8 blink cameras, and several nest cameras and other watchdog cameras in addition to the existing 35 motion and window detectors from Brinks.
So basically the house is now one of the most secured houses in Vegas. I can say that blink is so far the best.
The least connection problems, the best motion detection (ring has lots of false alarms and takes often long to connect to the live video via app), and the best, it has no monthly plan. Your videos will be recorded and stored in their cloud for free. RING has $30 per device or $100 max. per year. You could also add a solar to the blink which would even reduce the need to change a battery further or eliminate it altogether. Blink cameras are a very good thing as they can be set up without existing cables or power supply in 15 minutes! I have connected also the wifi and sync modules to UPS batteries, so even if electricity is cut, they will work and report motion.

If anyone is coming for my pool equipment again, he will be detected 100% and 3 ring flood light sirens will be switched on so basically the whole cul de suc will be alerted...
