The WiFi-enabled Stick Up Cam Elite also works indoors and outdoors, but rather than a battery, it's powered via standard wall outlet or Ethernet connection. It features the same 1080p video and two-way audio, along with advanced motion sensors with zone detection.

As far as smart home products go and coverage if a company or new product doesn’t support HomeKit then that should be the headline for the article. The rest of the article itself should examine why HomeKit isn’t getting products and if that is Apple having ridiculously high requirements or manufactures not wanting to properly secure their systems and other vendors being willing to sell a system that can be easily hacked.

No HomeKit? No sale.


And, a word of advice. If you want people to seriously consider your doorbell, make a decent faceplate that doesn't have your branding on it. Plus, HomeKit support, of course.

I just chatted with Ring support about HomeKit on the new Stick Up cam and they fed me the same BS about working with Apple to perfect it and how the Ring Pro and Floodlight Cam are the only ones that will have HomeKit but they're looking into others in the future (probably around 2050 or so??)

I have actually found home kit to be completely worthless. Alexa, google home etc is where it's at. Much easier setup the home kit.
Homekit is the only true secure system. There's a benefit to you when Apple insists manufacturers meet stringent security requirements before they can be HK compatible. Much easier to simply let anyone ala Google and Amazon tie into system, but people may regret it in long run.

I like Ring and they have solid Product with reputable customer service. But as others have alluded to, they don't have HomeKit compatibility, which is something that would be a nice advantage moving forward.
