Ring user from the UK. I have a couple of Spotlight Cams (Wired) whose lights are being frequently triggered at night by hot air from two central heating vents. Apart from the garden being lit up unecessarily, I am also concerned about reducing the lifespan of the LEDs with the frequent on/off of the lights. It’s only the lights that are coming on and there is no camera activation.
I was wondering if anyone else has suffered from the same issue and what their solution was?
There may be no point in me changing the “motion zones for lights” settings as the steam/hot air flows very close to both cameras. I beleive there is no point in me altering the “motion settings” as this will just affect the camera detection and not the lights.
One thought - does camera motion detection also turn on the lights or do the lights require the PIR to do the detection for the lights? One option might be to turn off all the motion zones for the lights and set the distance of detection to the minimum and rely on the camera dectection to tirgger the lights. Assuming of course that the camera would also trigger lights as well as recording the images.
Any advice would be appreciated.
