I had a very useful discussion with a member of the RING support team.
However, we agreed that there is an important option missing from the Ring control system.
Devices > Floodlight and Camera > Device schedules > Light schedules > add schedule >
Yes, help me set up a schedule > weekend > keep light off (continue) time frame
Start – at dusk (or customised Time)
End - at Dawn (or customised time)
What is missing is the opportunity to turn the lights OFF at DAWN and ON at DUST – subject to motion control.
The only way to create a DWAN to DUSK lights OFF is through manual time.
This changes across the year.
In a suburban setting this is counterproductive.
We do NOT need the floodlight to activate during the day.
What is needed is a START at DAWN and END at DUSK with LIGHTS Scheduled to be OFF.
Can anyone explain howe this can be achieved or suggest a revision to the software control.
