I've thought of this a bit, thinking it over again, it sounds like a good idea
I would go with separate transformer, unless yours is HUGE one.

I wonder how it would do with animals, we have small cat and dog.
Nice wide angle, and HD video as well in 1080p.

I'm interested to see what others say.

I have the first version of Ring on my deck and it works great. It syncs with the front doorbell without me doing anything. I do have two transformers. I already had a large floral arrangement in a wire container on the brick wall so I put the doorbell under it to give protection from the rain.
This gives a wide view of the deck and across the back driveway. I have 3 cats that hang out on the deck. Sometimes it picks them up but mostly does not. If they jump down off a chair it will pick them up but not just roaming around.
