Setting up your Stick Up Cam Battery/Solar in the Ring app

1. Charge the provided battery

Both the Battery and Solar versions of the Stick Up Cam come with a Quick Release Battery Pack. Make sure the provided battery is fully charged by plugging it into a USB port using the provided orange cable or any other micro-USB cable you have handy. The battery is fully charged when the green LED is lit.

  • Remove the battery cover on your Stick Up Cam by twisting it counterclockwise to unlock.
  • If the battery is already inserted, remove the battery.
  • After charging, insert the battery into the bottom of your Stick Up Cam until it locks into place.

2. Choose your location

Your Stick Up Cam will be happy just about anywhere, indoors or out. It can sit on its own stand, or mount to a wall or ceiling with a special Stick Up Cam Mount - sold separately here.

Choose a spot where it can provide the view that you want.

3. Install Stick Up Cam on a table or a shelf

Place the Stick Up Cam at your chosen location.

Your Stick Up Cam is now ready to protect you!

  • If you'd like a downward camera angle:
    • Swivel the base around so that the long side faces the front, then tilt your Stick Up Cam so it points downward.

Please go to step 4.

3. Install Stick Up Cam on a wall or ceiling 

  • Remove the base of the Stick Up Cam by unscrewing it using a standard Phillips-head screwdriver (not included).
  • Re-attach the base to the back of your Stick Up Cam with the "UP" arrow on the racket pointing upward.
  • Remove the mounting bracket by sliding it down to remove it from the base.
  • Hold the bracket against your wall, making sure the "UP" arrow is pointing upward, and mount it with the included screws.
  • Mount you Cam by guiding the grooves in the base on to the hooks on the bracket. Slide Stick Up Cam down to secure it to the wall.

You can now rotate your Stick Up Cam to the desired angle and check out the live video in the Ring app to make sure you have the view you want.

4. Attach the battery cover

Line up the “open lock” symbol on the rear of your Stick Up Cam with the line on the battery cover. Then push the cover on and twist clockwise to lock it in place.

Now your Stick Up Cam is installed and ready to protect you


5. Install the security screws (optional)

Your Stick Up Cam comes with two optional security screw locations.

One secures the mounting bracket to the base, and the other secures the battery compartment.

To access them after you've mounted your Stick Up Cam, rotate it to either side.

  • To install the base screw:
    • First, slide your Stick Up Cam off of the mounting bracket.
    • Pop the rubber plug out of the base then place Stick Up Cam back on the bracket.
    • Secure with one of the provided screws.
  • To install the battery compartment screw:
    • Remove the battery compartment.
    • Pop out the rubber plug.
    • Replace the battery compartment on your Stick Up cam
    • Secure with one of the provided screws.

If you have a Ring Solar Panel 

Ring Solar Panel charges the battery in your Stick Up Cam whenever the sun is shining. To purchase your own, click here. 

1. Mount your Ring Solar Panel

Follow the Ring Solar Panel instructions to mount the panel to your home and route its power cable to your Stick Up Cam.


2. Remove the rubber plug

Pull the round plug straight out out of the power port to remove.

3. Plug in your Ring Solar Panel

The power cable from your Ring Solar Panel may come with a round plug, or it may have a plug with screw tabs. The style of plug determines how you’ll hook it up.

4. To connect a Ring Solar Panel with a screw tab power plug:

Remove the two screws next to the power port

Be sure to save them, as you’ll need them to secure the power plug later.


5. Remove the two rubber spacers

If necessary, you can use the included screwdriver to gently pry them out.


6. Insert the power plug 

In most cases, the trailing cable should point down.

7. Secure the plug


Be sure to use the screws you removed in the first step. Using any other screws may damage your Stick Up Cam.

If your in-app setup doesn’t go as planned, try these tips:

Get your Wi-Fi password right

The most common setup issues come from entering the wrong Wi-Fi password. These passwords are case sensitive, and every little error counts.

Reboot your router

If you entered the right password but you’re having no luck, try turning your Wi-FI router off, wait 30 seconds, then turn it back on. Then, begin setup again in the Ring app.
