Alexa should be able to independently turn on and off the lighting to camera(s) (flood light and spot light) with lights by voice command

Currently, the lighting for the ring camera(s), (i.e. the spot light cameras and the flood light cameras) do not work with Alexa. It is not working at its full and basic function of its advertised name and integration of the Alexa app. The Alexa device can provide you the live viewing of the cameras when you ask for it on display for phone, or tablet or Alexa enabled device. But it cannot in the same manner activate the lights to turn them on nor turn them off. In order to perform that function you have to manually do so in the ring app. I think this integration is particularly of great need as it is a flood light as well as a camera and due to the connection with Alexa already and the fact it is a security device, it would only seem prudent that it operate in the full capacity as such described. Otherwise, it is deemed as an operating device working in half of its full potential and half of its most basic function. Thank You for your time and consideration.

This would be so useful.
Would be handy and useful if all accessories for ring devices worked through Alexa as well as all accessories work through the alarm system.
