Extending ring bridge range

Is there any way to extend the wireless range of the ring bridge?

I recently picked up a bridgre and 4 solar pathlights and I’m a bit disappointed at the range. Some are only about 25 feet away and they’re reporting poor connectivity to the bridge.

My driveway is about 300 feet long and I was hoping to add solar pathlights down the entire length if these worked out, but it isn’t looking good so far.

Hi @SecretAsianMan. If you are experiencing poor signal with your Ring Bridge, it could be due to interference. I would try moving your Ring Bridge to a different location and monitoring the signal for a day or 2. You may need to do this a few times to find an optimal location. I hope this helps!

I can do that. What kind of range should I be able to expect from the bridge in ideal conditions?

I could actually put the bridge outside in a weatherproof enclosure so it would have clear line of sight to the places where I want more pathlights.

Hi @SecretAsianMan . There isn’t an exact distance I can give. With the amount of variables that can affect the signal of the Ring Bridge, it’s tough to say. I wouldn’t put your Ring Bridge outside, even if in a weather proof box. With being exposed to the sun and hot/cold temperature, this could affect functionality.
