I have a lighting Group defined in the Ring app that includes two wired smart floodlights and a wired floodlight cam.
Using the Ring app to turn on the lights for this Group results in three sets of lights turning on (both wired smart floodlights and the wired floodlight cam), as expected. However, if I tell Alexa “turn on Group-Name lights” only the two wired smart floodlights turn on (the wired floodlight cam does NOT). To be clear, the Group is the lighting group created in the Ring app (not an Alexa group).
Any thoughts as to why Alexa only turns on the smart floodlights, but not the wired floodlight cam?
UPDATE: Just asked Alexa to turn on the light of the wired floodlight cam,and it replied “turn on is not currently supported”. So it seems Alexa is limited to only displaying the wired floodlight cam video (e.g., if you have a Echo Show) and not controlling the light of the wired floodlight cam. This would, therefore, explain the Alexa behavior of only turning on the smart lighting devices in the Group, but not the wired floodlight cam also in the same Group.
