Lights turn off

Why do my flood cam lights turn off when I turn them on manually.

Hi there, @mark1710! This will depend on how you are “manually” triggering the lights. For example, you can use your light switch (if one exists) to turn the lights on by flipping the switch off, and then quickly on again. This will reboot the camera and keep the lights on for about a minute.

If you are specifically referring to the Ring app manual lights toggle, this should turn your lights on for some time, but will also keep them on for a short duration. Check out our video walkthrough of the Floodlight Camera light settings, which includes tips on using light motion settings and schedules to keep lights on for longer.
