Ring Floodlight Flashing


Our Floodlight keeps on flashing on like a strobe light when it detects motion, rather than staying on.

This has been occuring on and off for several months. It fixes the issue when restarting several times, but that is not working this time around.

The floodlight is hardwired. I’ve restarted the electrical box, firmware is up to date. Not sure what else it can be other than the device itself. We installed the device around December.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you,

Wondering if you had any luck here. I have the same problem with strobing floodlights. Checked the lights and theyre full of water. :-(. Called support and was offered a measily 35% discount code. They cannot confirm of theyve fixed the water problem so there is no way Im paying another $200 to end up with the same people.

Same issue here! Noticed yesterday. Hoping to get a bit more help troubleshooting.

I have the same issue and I noticed it happens when the temperature drops below -20C. The first two winters I have been resetting it when I was noticing the flashing lights. It was working for the moment. This winter I decided to keep the lights off when it is cold outside.
