Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In vs. Elite

Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In vs. Elite

In this article, we’ll discuss the differences between the Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In vs. Elite.
To begin, Ring Elite supports a Power over Ethernet (PoE) connection which Ring Stick Up Cam lacks, thus giving it a stronger edge when it comes to connectivity and performance.

In addition, Ring Stick Up Cam Elite offers a greater field of view of 150° horizontal, 85° Vertical, compared to Stick Up Cam 110° horizontal, 57° vertical, allowing you to have a wider view range of the live feed.

While Ring Plug-In is a better solution for those of you that prefer a more budget-friendly option with almost identical features to Elite, minus the PoE, person recognition, and a few other specs which we will look at now.

Regardless, we still feel that Elite is the superior model due to its PoE support, increased field of view, advanced motion detection, and support for both a 2 GHz and 5GHz network.

Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In vs. Elite — What’s Different?

Ring Stick Up Cam Elite

Power Options – Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-in like the name already suggests uses a micro-USB cable in order to remain powered up. However, you can get a Quick Release Battery Pack for dual power separately. 

While Ring Stick Up Cam Elite supports an AC connection via USB cable, as well as the more notable PoE connection which allows you to both connect to power, as well as a reliable and continuous internet source directly from your PoE switch providing not only a stronger and a more reliable connection but less interference as well.

WiFi – Ring Stick Up Cam Elite supports a dual-band WiFi which allows it to connect to both a 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks for improved performance and fewer interruptions if you tend to have a lot of interference.

While Stick Up Cam Plug-In only supports a 2.4GHz connection, which has the potential to cause streaming issues when overloaded.

Motion Detection – Ring Stick Up Cam Elite uses an advanced motion detection which allows it to detect motion based on movement, rather than heat. which in turn means that you will receive more accurate alerts since it’s equipped with a capable “human detection” system that reduces the risk of false alarms. Even if it uses more power in the long run.

While Stick Up Cam Plug In’s standard motion detection uses passive infrared sensors to detect motion that goes by heat rather than movement, which, in turn, utilizes less power and might give off false alarms such as the neighborhood cars passing by.

Size & Design – The two models are almost identical in size, but differ in color tones. As Ring Stick Up Cam Elite features both a Black or White color tone, while Plug-In comes in a single Black option.
