Is there anyway to make the spotlights stay on longer than one minute? I’ve tried every setting I can find to change the “on” time from 1 minutes to hopefully to something longer, like 5 minutes. Thanks in advance!
Under devices, you should see your smart light group. Then tap the cog and select lights. You can set it from 30 seconds to 5 minutes
I’ll try mine tonight. I always keep it at 30 seconds. Mine are wired but I’m interested in seeing what happens.
@fergusoneddie Are you lights linked to anything or are you using the Spotlights to detect motion?
We are not using the motion detection with the lights. We just turn them on/off via Alexa as needed. The problem still exisits, as the lights turn off at the 1 minute mark. Even though they are set to 5 minutes with the ring app.
Thanks @fergusoneddie – I think that may be the issue. I think you are turning them on/off the wrong switch. Can you please let me know all the settings you have? Feel free to attach screen shots of the device pages.
@Jennifer_Ring See attached pics. I see that the 5 minute time off is linked to motion detection, but we don’t want to enable that. I can not find any other time off settings.
Glad I found this thread again. I did try the 5 minutes and it worked. But what you’re trying to do is different.
First under devices tap your Backyard. Then tap the lights on. Next you should see on the bottom a pop up saying the lights will be on for 1 minute. There is also an edit on the right. Tap that and you can set them to turn in up to 15 minutes. Does this work for you? I attached 2 screenshots.
Eagle328 it worked!!! Thanks so much! Couldn’t find that in any documentation online I could find.
Glad I could help. It’s hard to find. But once I understood better what you were trying to do. I figured it out. Enjoy your 15 minutes of light!
Just saw this as I was wondering about the timing. Once you edit one time, like change from 1 to 5 minutes, will it always be 5 ? Thanks
